Teen Modelling And Schoolwork

teen modelling and schoolwork
If you are seriously thinking of taking modelling because you are sick and tired of being told what to do by teachers, then maybe consider doing a little bit of model work to see if you like it? Don't ever do anything hasty and pack in school because you have had enough. Modelling is really hard work, and you will still need to have qualifications to back you up in case the modelling ever falls through. Looks can let you down but your brain never will.

Teen modelling and schoolwork is a balance you will have to learn to do. It's going to be seriously hard, but like any worthwhile job, it should also be a whole lot of fun. It's great to have a hobby that can earn you some money, what's not so great is having to still stay on at school and get the qualifications you need in case your looks fail you in later years.

No doubt your parents are concerned that the workload may be too much for you. You need to assure them that you are coping, but if you're not then you must admit it too. It's is a great way for you to gain new friends and have new experiences, but not at the expense of your schoolwork. If you do think you can manage teen modelling and schoolwork together, then by all means stride out and strut your stuff.

Perhaps consider turning down some model jobs around your revision time and your actual exams? You need to consider your future. Modelling at the moment maybe the best thing since sliced bread, but have a think that maybe your looks could fade in time. Do you want to do this sort of work as a career? Ask yourself and think carefully. If you do, no matter what, then there are different types of model jobs which you could always branch out into.

You need your parents on board at all times - you can't get to where you want to go without them. It's true that If you're under 16, you can't go to any photo shoots or casting sessions without a parent or guardian present. If they are concerned about your model and schoolwork then you need to buckle down and put their minds at ease. If you can show that you can  manage the two together, then you really could have modelling as a career one day.
