Kid or teenager managed by parents
I am 17 and currently a senior at Florence high school. When I graduate, I plan on attending Hinds for 3 Years to become a sonographer. I would love to model it’s been my dream job since I was little. My favourite thing to do is makeup; I love everything about makeup, it makes me so happy when I do someone’s makeup, and they end up loving it. I hope that in the future I will get more opportunities like this and that those opportunities will make a difference in my life.
Our readers would love to get to know you more Katie. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?
I believe that I am unique in that I don’t put on a show for others, what you see is what you get with me. I have no pretense.
Katie, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Kid or teenager managed by parents?
I feel as though I am just getting started, I have thought about this for years, and I have finally decided to break out of my shell and to get started on my future. As for my aspirations in life, I want only to get better at what I do, and I want to be able to provide for myself and my family in the future.
Who is your inspiration in life Katie? How do you keep inspired?
I think Selena Gomez has always been my biggest inspiration even when I was little I would see her on tv, and I wanted to be like her so badly. She always looked so beautiful in pictures, and that’s what I wanted to do. I keep inspired by continuing applying for modeling opportunities and having hope that even though one agency doesn’t pick me another will.
