Amanda is feeling confident after her Photo Assignment win, but knows what she has to work on.
There was another e-mail on the computer letting us know that we have another photo shoot and there would be a bus to pick us up. When we get downstairs, I see a big yellow school bus!!!
So I was thinking we’d be doing a shoot with kids or in a school or something.
But when we pulled up and walked down to a football field with football players, I was so excited and curious. When Tyson and Nicole let us know we would be doing a shoot about movement and sports, I was excited! I have been an athlete my whole life and so I’m pretty confident that I’ll do well.
I sort of feel like I’ve been skating through the competition and no one is really taking me seriously. So I know if I want to do good here, I have to rock this shoot!
The next day Nicole comes over and tells us that she has our new photos! Right when I saw mine, I couldn’t believe I got such an amazing shot!
I gave my all in this photo shoot and have absolutely no regrets.
Then Cory called and told me I won the shoot! I can’t think of words to describe how I felt at that moment!
I have been making so many sacrifices to be here. I’m a single mom, so I’m not working and to leave your 10-month-old baby is the hardest thing in the world. So to finally get some reassurance that all of my efforts aren’t going unseen is amazing! I’m not going to leave this house with nothing. I want this sooooo bad, with every little cell in my body, so I’m glad that I’m doing well. However, when I won, there were a lot of people that feel they did a better job and basically rained on my parade. But all they are doing is making themselves look jealous and ungrateful in the long run. Their true colors came through.
For winning this shoot, I won a casting call with Bloomingdales! I had the chance to become the face of Bloomingdales in a huge shoot!
I feel so lucky that I’ve even been given the opportunity to try.
At the casting, the clients let me know that I did a really good job, I had a good walk, and I knew how to model the clothes.
I was so close to having them pick me right then, but they said I might need a little work. Which is fine. I’m just glad I got good feedback! The next day, it was elimination, and I’m feeling pretty confident.
They called my name after doing my catwalk, and all of the judges said that I did a good job, but I needed to work on my walk.
Perou was so mean though, I feel like he would get his point across if he was nicer. He told me that I was “forgettable” which hurts since I’ve been giving my all to stand out.
That’s what I’ll be working on for next week …
