Introducing 'The Ugly Girl's Guide to Becoming a Model'

The first part of my book, The Ugly Girl's Guide to Becoming a Model, can now be read online for FREE here!

I hope that my little book will inspire and practically assist girls all over the world who were rejected by model agencies to make a career of modelling on their own terms, as I have! It's the best job in the world! <3

In the spirit of freelance self-determination, I will publish the book myself this year, which means that it will not be getting spelling and grammar-raped when it is available in its complete form ;)

Leave a comment somewhere to let me know what you think!

The Ugly Girl's Guide to Becoming a Model

I was never signed to a major fashion agency because, as I have already mentioned, I was too “short” (5’7”), too “fat” (120 lb) and too “old” (22, when I first moved to London and started modelling full-time) to even get an interview. This resulted in having to be my own agent, which in turn resulted in full-time modelling work, a nice flat in trendy North London, being jetted all over the world to visit amazing places I might never have hoped to see otherwise, and not having to pay anyone any commission on my earnings, thank you very much. I guess I’ve done pretty well, for an “Ugly Girl”.

Now I want to help others to do the same. I want women to realize that they don’t need perfect...
