I thought I'd share the good news- after 5 years of super hard work, I have  finally signed a non-exclusive contract with a reputable regional modeling agency!!!!!!!!

So rare for a 28 year old to get this, I'm seriously stoked!!! I've had to work so hard to get all of my own commercial work and networked, networked, networked- kept my look consistent as well as my measurements and body tone-

I almost gave up on this dream, it's finally come true!

Thank you both!!!! I've already been successful on my own at booking work, and I'm good friends with my booker, it looks like it will open doors to work that I didn't/wouldn't have access to with my own networking. smile smile smile smile

It's crazy to think that there's a "shelf life" to women.  I remember getting signed at 33 and was like woo hoo and people were like that's awesome since you're so old.  WTH?!!  LOL

Peach- thank you! Mederma extra strength (after the stitches were taken out underneath my eye) really helped break the scar tissue down, you can't see a scar underneath my eye unless you touch it smile

That is amazing news and very inspiring as well. It's one of those "never give up on your dreams" type of stories with a great ending. That really gave me a little push to keep trying. I'm 24 and I feel like it's pretty much too late, but I found some agencies where cut off age is 25 and some even 28 in L.A.
So i'll keep trying a little longer and if it's God's Will, it will happen, if not, then that's alright too. I've enjoyed the llamaing jobs I've recieved thus far smile
