Meet the Models spotlights each and every model featured in Scottsdale Living — so you can get to know them better.

Up next on Meet the Models, meet Trisha Y. (from JANI Model Management), who you can spot in our Fall 2012 issue.

How did you start modeling?

My sister told me about an open call JANI Model Management was holding last November, and I couldn’t have been more excited to go. They signed me that same week.

What type of modeling do you like the most and why?

Photo shoots are so much fun, but my favorite is runway. It’s an adrenaline rush, and I get to show off my height!

What is your favorite shoot you’ve done and why?

The Scottsdale Living fall shoot to be honest. The location, staff and overall look were all amazing. It was very professional, and I had a blast.

arrowsAs of this moment, I like this one that the talented photographer Michael Franco took. It makes me feel comfortable and timeless when I look at it.

What advice would you give to someone interested in modeling?

Believe in yourself, and stick with the people who support your dream. Everyone’s a critic, and it could be tough — especially if you weren’t born with the perfect measurements, porcelain skin or the supermodel-long legs. However, if you stick to your guns, and embrace your flaws, the confidence you have in yourself will soon convince people of how awesome you really are.
