Modeling Demands A Lot Of Hardwork And Dedication- Victoria Michaels
Ghanaian model Victoria Michaels debunks belief that modeling is very easy and simple, all it takes for someone to model is to look good and smile.
“A lot goes into modeling and that is what most people don’t know. You have to practice in front of the camera for months and adequately prepare before an opportunity comes knocking at your door. You always have to be in shape so that you are always hot on the market where you find yourself,” she revealed.
The model, Vicky stated that modeling goes way beyond just hitting the runway in a designer’s outfit, because it involves a lot from getting the right platforms to mount and all which is a lot of hardwork and connections.
