Model of confidence

My daughter Camille is seven years old and she has been a finalist in two modelling competitions this year (Teen Models Back In Vogue, Life, Aug 16). This has done wonders for her confidence. She has blossomed into a confident young girl and has achieved good results in school too.

Modelling at her age is not about achieving fame and fortune but developing self-confidence, self-esteem and self-belief.
