Within the same year she graduated from Barbizon in Atlanta, 16 year-old Ashanee Bolton has landed her first magazine editorial! While attending a Barbizon scouting event in October 2013, she was personally selected by the editors to appear in the number one magazine for teen girls, Girls’ Life Magazine.
Just one month later, on November 17th, Ashanee found herself flying to Baltimore to do her first ever photo shoot for her GLM editorial. “When I arrived in Baltimore for my very first photo shoot I was excited, but nervous as well. Being on set was a new thing to me, but it was similar to what I expected when it came down to touch ups and people watching me,” she recalls.
Building self-esteem is a core value of Barbizon. Just like anyone who has ever tried his or her hand at “something new,” a first photo shoot can be a nerve-racking event. Ashanee emphasizes, “A skill that I learned and utilized from Barbizon for the Girls’ Life photo shoot was to have confidence.”
Believing in oneself and having a confident attitude is the key to success in any industry. In her advice to current Barbizon students and graduates, Ashanee affirms, “Always be true to yourself, have self-confidence, and put your mind to what you believe you should do.”
Ashanee’s print debut will appear in the February/March 2014 issue of Girls’ Life - on news stands in January. Her hopes for the future are, “To progress throughout the years and achieve my goal of becoming an international model.” We strongly believe this only the beginning for Ashanee Bolton, and are so proud to be a part of developing her dream.
