On recent episodes of Zuba, we saw Janet doubting herself and wondering whether her dream of being a supermodel would finally come to pass. Like most of us, all Janet needed was a little motivation – and it came in the form of a man she bumped into, who told her she should look into being a model, because her “body is banging”. ??
Does Janet have what it takes to become a real supermodel? We thought we’d put together a list of top identifiers that can help our dearest Janet on her journey to the top.
Without confidence, there’s very little any of us can do in life. The ability to wear swimsuits as a model requires one to be confident both physically and emotionally. Some models are shy but when it comes down to it, they have to put that shyness aside and do the job they’re paid for. Does Janet have confidence in herself? You better work on it, Janet.
Know Thine Fashion:
Although she’s a pretty girl, in all the time we’ve known Janet, we have never seen her dolled up or dressed to the nines, much less seen her fashion knowledge. If you’re going to be a model, the first thing to do is to acquaint yourself with the fashion industry and daily trends. The closest Janet has come to fashion is working for a family that owns a fashion empire. But is this enough to help push Janet to the success she craves?
No one likes a ‘Diva’:
Despite popular belief, not all models act like typical divas. However, it’s been said most of them do. Is this how the fashion world is? We could never know, but what we do know is ‘no one likes a diva.’ That means people don’t like working with models that have ridiculous demands and bad attitudes. You’ll get much more respect and a longer career when you treat everyone with the same humility and respect you want them to treat you with. But do you think our Janet can be that humble?
It’s all well and good to have the posh life and be the best model in the world. But none of that means anything if you don’t give back to those who need it, like someone once did for you. It takes a unique person to be able to share their success in the modeling industry, while also trying to uplift others. Do you think Janet would have it in her heart to do the same for aspiring young models, should she make a success of her modeling career?
