hey the media is always saying how much pressure the fashion industry is on young models e.g forcing them to loose weight to look a certain way i was just wondering from an insiders point of view is it really as bad as people make it out to be/ how do you deal with the pressure?

I have job requirements that I have to meet, yes. It’s stressful because it’s you. You just find a way to deal with it and the older you get the easier it is on you overall.

what's the longest you've been awake?

kmitt replied...

I think I was awake for 3 days straight once. I was in NY shooting, then flew all night to Paris, then shot until the middle of the night, then was jet lagged and couldn’t sleep where I was staying, then had meetings and flew back to NY on a bumpy flight and didn’t sleep and was jet lagged again on arrival. It was a vicious cycle.

Sorry if you're sick of questions but I'm curious...did you get to keep anything from the shoot or were you gifted with something ?

kmitt replied...

Rarely. Once or twice.

how was highschool for you? Did you enjoy it or was it rough? I seem to be having a hard time

kmitt replied...

High school is kind of a blur. I was oblivious to everything going on around me, which I’m thankful for. I just wanted out. I would try to “fit in” but just felt awkward and unclear about the whole thing. I got to leave after my Junior year for work, but I would have left anyways. High school is insignificant. What happens there is almost like Vegas, it doesn’t have to carry into the rest of your life unless you let it define you. High School sucks so don’t let it. Be yourself, it’s awesome.

Everything and anything. I’m into The Black Keys and The Kooks (who I just missed in NY, sob, and I’ll miss The Black Keys, crying a river).
