Backstage at The Academy of the Art University I was surprised to see that two of the shows stars were under the age of ten! As they were getting primped their parents weren't far behind and they looked like they've been doing this all their lives – funny thing is, they have.
The modeling scene was familiar to Nico, 9 and Jacqueline, 9. Both who appeared in Target ads and have walked the runway for NYFW before. "I have a picture of myself pointing to the big Target billboard that I'm in, in Times Square," said Jacqueline. "It's pretty cool."
Nico is home schooled all year round and loves modeling, but has aspirations beyond the modeling world. "When I grow up, I want to be a marine biologist," she says. "I think sea lions are really cool."
Jacqueline, who has appeared in Rebound with Catherine Zeta-Jones aspires to be an actress and see herself on the big screen one day. Looks like she's on the right path.
What were you doing when you were 10 years old?
