note: I was already signed with Ford when I attended this convention in NYC. I was taking an acting class with John Robert Powers and was scouted through the window by a Ford agent on their way to an open call at the school. JRP wanted me to represent their school at the IMTA competition in New York City even though I was signed.
Runner up, dramatic monologue.
Female Model of the Year, as well as high honors in all model categories.
Fellow winners in Male categories were Josh Duhamel and Ashton Kutcher.
This particular convention was featured as a documentary on E! Television for the next year, seeming to replay once a week. I had an interview featured. I had just turned 14.
