Otis and Rocha: 'Modeling Starts Too Young'
Like so many other models, Rocha started in modeling at a very young age. She was scouted at 14, modeled at 15 and living in NY at 16.
Otis also started modeling terribly young. “I don’t think any young woman should be put in that situation, period,” says Otis of young girls living alone in New York model apartments. “It’s like, would you let a 13 or 14-year-old drive a car? They’re not ready.”
In this clip from the show, Otis and Rocha tell Anderson whether or not they think the modeling world is making positive changes to take care of young girls and help them understand why their bodies change over time...
What do you think? Does modeling start too young? Is the modeling industry being held accountable for the health, well-being and body image of young models? What should be done?
