        My family doesn't travel alot and I live in Louisiana. I'm not in modeling but I really want to. Ik I'm 12 but she said she was scouted at 13 the only I have would be to get scouted.. what modeling company would possibly come to Louisiana and scout me. 💀 I mean I'm gonna try my best to have my own photo shoots and post them on instagram and dress up when I go out but I really can't do much😂

            Lots of love ♥️♥️♥️ love this video Romee! So so authentic and real and it’s “nice” (I doesn’t mean that it’s nice that you had bad feelings but it’s reassuring to hear about that) to see that a supermodel like you struggled with the whole “model-thing” as well.
            You done it sooo soo well and now you are even a bigger inspiration than before to me! 💞

                      First advice: empty your fridge.

                        Very honest and interesting video Romee! Best thing you did was to take that year off and go back to Holland. And it looks as if you have now found your balance! The only thing that I kind of don’t understand is: if VS is such a close family, why do they ask so much of models and push them to be extremely thin for their castings? Take care!

                          This was inspiring. I've had body image issues in the past and am trying to get into modeling. It's great to see that you were able to succeed and book VS and everything after facing adversity. Hopefully you see this

                                      you got lucky by being born good looking that's how you become a model, ugly people don't become models simple

                                                          when she started talking about food and having a bad relationship with food, it reminded me a lot of myself and my bad relationship with food. it really meant a lot to hear from a beautiful model like romee that you should not have that relationship with food and that you are allowed to enjoy eating and that you should eat healthy for the way you FEEL, not the way you look. thank you big sis ily<3

Ahh the anxiety attacks! escpecially in the models' apartment feeling alone in a new city, all of this video is so relatable! xoxo.

She was separated from her fam and boyfriend. Also she got panic attacks in hotel rooms when she was 16. It's all about being younger and being alone in different country at 16 :(
