REJECTION! My Latest Vlog
Modelling = 20% being paid for how you look, 80% being rejected for how you look.
Check out my vlog on how I deal with that awful feeling of REJECTION!
It’s savage. No model is safe from that feeling of sadness, despair and ‘I am not good enough’. But the models who survive are the ones who are able to deal with rejection, to keep that belief in themselves and fight their own insecurities. Look at Rudie McCree, who was dealt nothing but rejection by agencies until Bookings took a punt on her – and it paid off big time.
I’ve been rejected more times than I care to mention, and many times I’ve been told exactly why. In fact today I was told I was too thin by a client who, last year, measured me in front of a room full of people and said I was too big for her clothes (I am the same size). So many agencies turned me away at the start, I’ve been sent home from jobs for not having the right look and each time I do a casting, I’m probably going to be rejected. Each time I’m optioned, it’s probable I won’t get it.
But, like a cockroach, I’m still here, booking jobs and feeling good about myself. How?! My handy mental toolkit, outlined in this vlog, has stood me in good stead.
PS Just for a change, I’m wearing Pixi Flawless & Poreless Primer, Pixi H20 Skin Tint, Rimmel ‘Live Pink’ Blusher and Chanel mascara. My jumper is SO GOOD! It’s the Charlie Animal Print Sweatshirt from People Tree.
