Anneliese Wright and Charlotte Crowder
Lawson Elementary School students fifth grader Anneliese Wright and second grader Charlotte Crowder have lived in Jefferson City all their lives. Both young ladies have currently modeled and participated in pageants for about three months.
Anneliese: I am getting ready to do my first fashion show experience and I know it will be outstanding. I truly enjoy being on the stage now with pageants and modeling is another way to showcase my personality.
Charlotte: I have been doing pageants for awhile, so I wanted to expand and get some experience. That’s why I am currently doing modeling, as well.
Anneliese: So far my mom has been helping me send my pictures to different casting directors so I can book more fashion shows.
Anneliese and Charlotte: So far all I have done are photo shoots.
Anneliese: In my opinion the biggest misconception is that all models have to be a certain weight or extremely skinny and tall.
Charlotte: That you have to be a certain age or height to be a model.
Anneliese: I really look forward to being on stage and putting on the beautiful outfits.
Charlotte: I love dressing up and rocking the runway.
Anneliese: Mid-Missouri doesn’t have as much opportunities as the bigger states or areas, so I think this fashion show will display a lot of good and unrecognized talents in the area.
Anneliese and Charlotte: Enjoli and her team have been very understanding and enthusiastic about their event. They have been motivating me and encouraging me along the way. For me as a child, it goes a long way.
Anneliese and Charlotte: I hope to continue to send out my portfolio, get invited to a few more casting (calls) and get signed by an agency.
Anneliese: It’s not as hard or scary as you think. It’s definitely and adventure but you will love every bit of it.
Charlotte: Take the leap you won’t be disappointed.
