What brought you to New York?
KELLY: I’m here for a modeling convention.

How’s it going?
The hardest part is that you have to go to a lot of castings and you might not get a job. You have to have tough skin. It makes you a stronger person, which I guess in the end is good.

What are your dreams for modeling?
NICOLE: Definitely high-fashion runway. Europe is one of my biggest dreams.

What fashion do you love?
Dolce & Gabbana. And Versace’s definitely cool.

Do you have any of their things?
Not yet. But it is almost my 15th birthday.

What are you learning in modeling school?
DANA: Um, I learn how to handle agents and stuff, and how to talk to them, what to say, what not to say. How to walk and stuff like that. You have to always be positive, and no matter what, always smile, even if they don’t really like you.

Have you learned a lot about fashion since you started modeling?
DANIELLE: Definitely. I’m way more into the designers now. My favorite is Dolce & Gabbana, not that I have anything by them. I shop mainly at American Eagle.
