Delaney Glover was born and raised in Jefferson City, attending Jefferson City High School as a sophomore.
Delaney: America’s Next Top Model inspired me to get into modeling and ever since the show, I know that’s what I wanted to do as a career. My first shoot was (the end of July) and I did head shots and full body shots to build my resume up. The shoot was very relaxed, but I knew you had to be on your A game all the time.
Delaney: The biggest misconception that people think about the modeling industry is that they’re anorexic and starve themselves, when really they don’t. A big part of the Industry is to be yourself and to be natural.
Delaney: I’m looking forward to everything! I’ve never done anything like this before and I’m very excited to experience it! I can’t wait to model off the many brands that will be there and build my resume. I’m also looking forward to the many opportunities I will have for the future. I want to be noticed, and I feel as if I could prove it on the at the show for Mid MO Fashion Week.
Delaney: My goals for this year are to do more photo shoots and fashion shows. Down the road, I would like to do modeling all around the world and model for many well established brands such as Gucci, Dior and many more. Then I would love to be participant annually at New York Fashion Week.
Delaney: Advice I would give to any other models is how much work you put in is how much you will get out of it. Always go harder because they’re so many others who want the same thing as you, you just have to stand out and be you!
