Ekaterina Joukova: Why do modeling agencies not book me?
I should be a fashion model; by many I have been told,
I’ve been trying for an year, and am just 18-years-old.
I know I am a little bit short, at a mere five foot eight,
and my 34-25-36 at 120 lbs may be a tad overweight.
Oh, I would really love to model all varieties of fashion!
And my motive is intrinsic; a deeply cherished passion.
Photographers, makeup artists, models encourage me.
But no luck so far getting booked; why should this be?
Here are some responses Ekaterina got.
- Work on your pictures, expression, smile and hair mate.
- Starting at age 17 and now 18, you are a little too late.
- Better look like you’ve not for a while a good meal ate.
- It’s your face honey; you need cheekbones like Kate’s.
- Attention troll! Let the pros, not us, have your looks rate.
How may we disappointed and confused Ekaterina educate?
Ekaterina, by fashion world norms, you don’t look great.
Surely, it’s bad to resign yourself to your apparent fate.
But, ask yourself, why does age 18 border the too late
when the models will be selling to adults, not to jail bait?
To bolster your chances, you have lost 10 lbs of weight.
But why do fashion designers extreme thinness mandate,
when most women customers are not close to flyweight?
What people do the industry’s absurd standards dictate?
The designers who’d of the pleasures of sodomy partake
with boys, whose looks the models have to approximate.
Surely, these looks are not those to which your’s relate;
neither with dieting, etc. could your efforts thus translate.
Be glad; let these facts your emotional well-being inflate.
