            she wanted it at the beginning but if you watch all video you can understand. she was 16 when she came to NYC and she felt homesick because she was alone in USA and she is from Netherlands. She was separated from her fam and boyfriend. Also she got panic attacks in hotel rooms when she was 16. It's all about being younger and being alone in different country at 16 :(

            I struggle with many of the issues you talked about and it gives me confidence in myself to hear that I am not the only one. As a ballet dancer about to audition for companies, I struggle with my weight, and being motivated besides knowing I’m talented, and have so many great opportunities (which is all in my head). It’s time I start trusting my gut/heart. :) Thank you Romee for sharing your story!

                              Hey RS,
                              Thank you for this. 👍✌👏💓😘💖I also left my life behind in N'orleans to pursue a better life for myself in Calif. It wasn't difficult, due to my MOM had help with me while she pursued working and taking care of her CHILD (me hehehehe)...
                              because of that, I knew leaving N'orleans would be best way to go at life. Like you, glad I forward to TODAY!...
                              I see another person (on my job, actually) who is there on an internship far away from where he's from. ...(Actually, Japan)...well versed young man...
                              Makes you appreciate that so many PPLS are going through, this very same issue you speak of...Your presentation really does help PPL, let's them understand/appreciate,
                              Opportunities come with sacrifices (never known/observed, that are hidden) but are necessary for growth/advancements and yes, Happiness!
                              You mentioned that V.S. allowed you to become and ANGEL! with them and what an "ANGEL" your are....👌👏👍
                              Stay Well/Stay Informed, cuz by you creating your YT channel, I can be also...Peace Out!👍✌👌💖😏

                                    Romee, I know how you feel. Can you believe when I modeled Paris Haute Couture in the early 90's, I was married and had a child? I missed them so much. One time I even flew my Mom and daughter to Paris during the shows. And even before I was married, I'm super close to my family and I would cry for my Mom when I moved to New York and I remember John Casablancas telling me it's okay lol ( I was signed to Elite). People don't realize that modeling can be lonely. I never got famous because I couldn't continually stay away from my loved ones. My agency in Paris asked me to move my husband and daughter there. But as much as I love Paris, I'm American and I love America, it's my home. But sometimes I still think I should have stuck it out because I may have become as popular as the top high fashion models of that day. I didn't have anyone telling me to stick it out because they missed me too. I totally know how you feel. I think you are very strong for sticking it out. My daughter and I are your fans. xo - Jamil

                                              Adhya .R don’t. Unless you have the gift, thick thick skin, and know how to protect yourself and your money. I was a model and decided I’d rather be the director- learn cinematography, photography, create art, and help models and others actors because that shit is tough. I did it as a child, and it can create some mental issues in the future fr. If you’re a kid/teenager- be a kid and don’t worry about anything else because time fucking flies and the grass ain’t always greener on the other side.

                                                          I've been working since i was in high school. Not to the extent as her but still working. And my god is there so much to relate to. The issues separating external value from internal. Feeling insecure in yourself and fearing your decisions. Feeling so, inexplicably lonely all the time and wondering if the success and the joy and passion for work are worth it when you always celebrate alone.
