Young Models Cruise

Update posted by Ailuromancy On Mar 22, 2014

It was brought to my attention recently that nobody cares about the average kid. It isn't enough to be an enthusiastic, friendly and eager aspiring model. In order to engage the population and garner interest in progress, you have to spin a sob story or in some way be SPECIAL.

Anya is special. Not just because she's my little sister. Because she's thirteen and already knows that she wants to go into the business, without outside pressure from someone else to be a performer or model. She might take the schooling she's gotten from Barbizon and go nowhere with it, but right now her future is bright and she has an opportunity to do something special through the school's programs.

It seems like the people who get anywhere through these kinds of campaigns are those claiming to have some kind of condition. It's an unfortunate truth that there are people suffering every day, with knowledge of the incumbent end of something good in their life. How much more unfortunate is the person incapable of that foresight, moving forward with goals unknowing if the next moment an accident or illness that strikes suddenly, without warning of that end?

I could incite a sense of sympathy, revealing personal  truths and details of private lives in an effort to get others to donate. I would hope that wasn't necessary, as the simple fact that I am reaching out to friends, family and complete strangers to help achieve this goal ought to imply that this otherwise is not an easily accomplished amount in average living.

I have heard naysayers, those complaining that Barbizon is a scam, not a school. Like many things in life, just because you have paid your dues and attended schooling for a specific vocation does not guarantee that it will provide you with work. Perhaps there may be cheaper ways of going about learning how to go out and get hired for a modeling or acting job, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's a scam that someone is asking to be paid for those lessons.

I have heard that she should not be charged for a casting call, as though that has any relevance to attending a cruise or convention, and as I understand it this is essentially a convention for aspiring models on a cruise, which accounts for the thousands of dollars price. I'm not sure how anyone could take the idea of a cruise for models as paying for a casting call, in my mind it's a cruise, with the side benefit of mingling with those in the business who may or may not be able to further the career path Anya has chosen.
