What advice do you have for kids and teens that would like to model and act? Never get discouraged. You might get ten turn downs or “no’s” to your 1 “yes” but sometimes that’s all it takes is that one! Set short-term goals and move up from there. This will keep you in good spirits. If you want it bad enough nothing will get in your way but yourself.
