| My name is Monica Bailey, I'm 19 years old and I live in Maryland. I am a bubbly type of person whose personality can fill a room. I enjoy taking pictures and having pictures taken of me. I love singing and acting, as well as having fun with my family and friends, shopping and going out. I really love to model and have been modeling since I was in elementary school. From my very first fashion show until now, I have loved the crowd and they have loved me. Often times, I am told at castings that " I walk tall for a person that is short". I believe, that this is because I am confident in myself and my ability to act and model, shows, in the way that I carry myself. If given the chance, I will stand out like a bright star. I am very dedicated, and my goal is to change the standard of what this industry considers, "beautiful". I am a "aspiring model" who just happens to be petite and plus size. It is my plan to make my mark on the industry. It is my hope that through my hardwork and due dilligence, that I can help to change the "size and shape" of the industry; as well as help to re-define the current definition of what beauty is. Petite and Plus size women deserve to see their image reflected on the runway too. They deserve to wear stylish high fashion clothes just like their size 10 and under counterparts. I aim to be one of the people that helps to facilitate that change, and for all those that say I'm too short, well I'd say, " that's what they make heels for". Even though I stand 5'1", I am a lot taller in heels and will usually have no problem in meeting the minimum height requirement in them. I just need someone to give me a chance, I promise you that you won't regret it.
