There are numerous qualities that make a good runway model :

1. She is never late; always on time.
2. She is prepared with a model’s tote bag.
3. She should fit into garments with little or no alteration.
4. She has good skin and hair and is always well groomed.
5. She is objective and willing to wear garments that she may not like personally.
6. She is cooperative with staff and other models.
7. She is businesslike and professional and realizes that her job is to sell garments on the runway and make them look appealing to the audience.

Barbizon can help you achieve these qualities.

Hi my name is Amanda Dowell I graduated from Barbizon in 2000 and it changed my life. When I started out I was very shy and also very down on myself. Barbizon helped me to straighten out my life and see my potential that I had. Not only did I graduate with the “Most Improved ” award but I graduated with a bunch of people who were not just my classmates but they were like my family. They were friends who believed in me. I got on stage that February and I sang to the audience in front of all those people a song called “Believe.”

This Modeling Organization is like no other my teachers my friends and classmates changed my whole outlook on myself and my life. I sat many days down on myself because I thought I could not do it and even was going to chicken out of sing that song called Believe. There were two students in my class that said do not give up try it and see if they like it. I left the stage with muchapplause and smiles and I had the audience memorized as I left and saw many hands clapping and I felt so victorious after that song.

It was not just the talent but being up there on the runway makes you feel like you have power it makes you feel like you are on top of the world and that you can do anything. The truth is you can all you have to do isbelieve in yourself and strive for he best. Barbizon of Knoxville has touched my life as I hope it touches everyone else lives across the states and in Tennessee.

Thank you Barbizon and thank you my fellow friends for being there.
