I was asked by a student if they should go to school or try becoming a model. Here is what I told them:
I have always believed that you should give the "dream" a shot when you are young because you can always return to school. Go for the modeling and if it does not work out, go back to school. The only thing you would loose is a year or two if things don't work out. On the other hand you could have a nice career as a model. From personal experience I can tell you that it is easier to follow your dreams when you are young than when you are older and have bills and a family to take care of.
What do you think?
