    thank you for this amazing video! I've become interested in modeling (after being fully recovered from anorexia for years and nope that's not paradoxical lol). I'm going to live in Japan for 1 year and finish my degree there, and I'm excited for starting new adventures ๐Ÿ™‚ let's connect!

    Hi, i will be studying in a university in japan in 2 years, but i also want to be a model at the same time, do you think there will be agencies that will want me even if i go to school because i saw that when you register with an agency your day is really full

  3. SashaOwen

    A good thing to remember also is: You don't need any pictures to go see an agency, your agency should be responsible for putting together and building your book- not you. If your agency isn't working with you on that then they probably aren't very good. [this tip is obvs not to you Laura! >.<]

  4. Jules

    i'd love to do something like this instead of teaching english if i were to ever work in japan, but my biggest concern is that i have a lot of tattoos. i cant really hide them. have you ever had an agency reject you because of your tats? or do you find most of your colleagues dont mind them visible? thx <3
