The funny thing about today's cattle call casting was that the girls were all hanging out in the lobby of the Mondrian Hotel in bikinis. The girls were checking each other out, as well as guests and staff practically walking into walls with all these beautiful women half naked in the lobby. It was so random but so funny to observe and be part of! A teenage boy's dream!
Victoria's Secret wanted to meet with me -- I almost fainted at the thought! It was a girl's dream come true. I barely slept and I woke up with the world's largest pimple, probably the biggest one I have ever had. I was told to strip down and stand against this white wall where multiple photos were taken of me while these two ladies went through my portfolio.
I went from a girl working 9-5 and trying to find her place in the world to a well-recognized Canadian model whose campaign with Guess led to a whirlwind of international media attention. Now I get to do a lot of fun things and get paid for it. And everyday I am very thankful to be in this position. I don't take any day for granted.
