Testimonial: A Model's Story
In many ways I give thanks to Spotlight for the career I have now. What once was a shy soft spoken person is now a confident woman in the fashion industry. I took lessons from Jacqui and Adrian for four years. In those four years I learned more than I'm sure they take credit for. I still remember the terrifying feeling I had when they would force us to watch our tapes back during the on-camera classes. But the things you hate the most you grow from the most.
Jacqui knew this about me and was never afraid to push my limits, she forced me to go to these places I didn't think I could. And when I did, that moment of praise she would give me as she would jump up and down screaming "YES!" felt like the most rewarding moment. I ended up turning my passion towards modeling, but I still to this day use many of the things I learned at Spotlight during my shoots and runway shows.
Thanks to that I have now travelled overseas to Japan and worked for companies such as Olympus Cameras, Alfa Romeo, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz and The Shopping Channel. And I am now represented by one of Canada's top agencies Next Models.
The things you learn at Spotlight you not only take away with you that night as you ponder your work, you take it away with you for life. Wherever it may take you.
