Model Universe™ Andrea M. Estrada says, "Key learning point from this past month is to never quit! When you’ve tried and tried again, but failed to accomplish your goal or dream, it’s normal to feel like giving up."

"I’ve tried to get signed by modeling agencies and I’ve been turned away or it just didn’t work out. I took some turns along the way where I was burned, hustled, and rejected. After 6 years of ups and downs, I thought about quitting the dream many times."

"I knew if I wanted to take my modeling career to the next level, I had to do something different. I decided to hire a model mentor and after working with her for a few short months, I learned so much about the industry and what it takes to be a successful working model. Through persistence, confidence, and constantly seeking for and utilizing the resources in front of me, I can finally say I’ve been signed with a New York model agency and I couldn’t be more excited! I look forward to what lies ahead and what I accomplish next with this amazing opportunity!"

"Although I tried all those years and had my discouraging moments, I chose to keep going knowing that success is inevitable as long as you don’t quit. So, never give up on yourself and keep working hard to accomplish your goals!"
