YSAB: The pros are that I get to meet a lot of friends. Also I travel just for a show or shoot. Other pros are having a lot of free time to do whatever I like. It also stays interesting because you are working with different crews all of the time, and you get to work with really great people.
MC: And the cons?
YSAB: I don’t like to tell a lot of people that I am a model because they automatically assume that I am an idiot. There is a lot of judgment and people tend to think that you are stupid or shallow. Also, there is a lot of waiting. You have to wait around and then rush to do something when you are told. And when you first start out you have to work for free a lot, which can be weird.
