It is indeed true that whatever one does becomes stress when passion is out of it.
Aliana King, a 17-year-old teenage model, is defiling all odds to explore her passion.
Aliana, who’s at 5ft 4in wronged everyone who has thought she has no chance of being a model.
The teenage model can be said to be well renowned in New York, as she wins a major contract with MP Mega Miami, a management agency in Florida.
It is 2 years since she took to a catwalk for the Bermuda Fashion Festival, but Aliana’s professional modelling career kicked off after.
Speaking on her career, Aliana said; “The thing with me is I’m 5ft 4 and models usually start at 5ft 9.
“I never thought this could happen to me. I enjoyed doing it in Bermuda and was satisfied with that because I didn’t think I was tall enough, or even good enough, to go any further in modelling. I wasn’t very confident at all in school; I was definitely teased a lot. It’s funny but the things that make me different as a model are what I was teased about: my sharp jaw structure — they would call me a lizard. My hair is big and kinky and I had long pigtails and they would yank them like a horse.
“The things that make me proud of me now, were things that I hated before because of how I was treated. Modelling helped me understand that you’re beautiful no matter what you look like. Things I thought were bad were actually my best features and I gained that confidence through modelling.“
Aliana, who graduated from the Bermuda Institute, has series of modelling contract in her name.
