“I am having a blast! I just completed my first photo shoot with my agency in NY! What an amazing experience! Who would have thought that in a few short months I would be living my dream as a fashion model in New York with one of the world’s top agencies! I am now a bi-costal model with agents in SF, NY and Atlanta. I owe it all to you, the preparation, tools and training I received with Steele Models was invaluable! Thank you for helping me make my dreams come true!
Love, Sammie Smith”
