I can answer questions from those looking to get into the fashion or commercial modeling industry. Specifically, the requirements, what is needed, how to find an agent, what they look for, how to avoid scams, the difference between what a commercial model does, and a fashion model, would travel/relocation be required, what is on a comp card and in your portfolio.
Both my acting and modeling resume/portfolio is available online on my website. I am a member of the Screen Actors Guild, and also have available my actor's demo reel and voice-over demo online. I founded both the Florida-Models.com and Florida-Actors.com websites, which provide free modeling and acting info to the public. I have moved into directing, producing and screenwriting - and have won awards for my writing. I have worked in the industry as both a model and actress in Florida, New York City and Los Angeles until October 2007. I now reside in Europe.
I have worked as a commercial print model, actress in films, television and commercials, and as a commercial voiceover artist professionally since 1996, and love what I do. Whether in front of the camera or behind it - this feels like what I was meant to do in life. The work fulfils me.
I want to continue learning new skills, and will work in the industry as long as I am able. At the time I write this, there has only been one female director ever nominated for an Oscar. No female director has ever won one. I'd like to see that change.
There are no physical requirements for commercial modeling. You do not need to be tall, thin or young to work as a model for a living. Most people are only aware of fashion modeling, and are surprised to learn about commercial modeling.
There is still underrepresentation and acceptance of disabled people in modeling and the entertainment industry. It's really not that much different for other minorities - particularly in the acting industry.

If you have the chance, perhaps you could ask a few people from a couple different areas in the U.S. to read out loud your last name. Of course they shouldn't have heard it before. If they do well, no
