DJ Grain: Can you describe the grind of a model trying to break into the industry? Eboni: It is a continuous, never-ending grind. It consists of constantly updating your portfolio and promoting yourself. It involves being told "No" and coming back a few months later, bigger and better. As with anything, breaking into the modeling industry involves progression and perfecting your craft.
DJ Grain: Any words for the ladies out there that have aspirations of entering the modeling industry? Eboni: Research. Know Your Market. Stay Aware... Research the industry; especially those looking for agency representation. Know your market; are you a commercial, high fashion, or glamour model? And Stay Aware; be mindful that there are scams and scam artists out there. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
