Although she is easy on the eyes, Hayley Williams is afraid that her career as a model has not taken off as expected and yet time is running out.
Williams posts tearful video
The 23-year-old posted a tearful video explaining the realities of modelling, complete with the brutal rejections she faces on a daily basis while trying to pursue her dream.
New York Post reports that the model who shuttles between US and London is signed to Wilhelmina Models and hadn’t landed a job in over four months. She also admitted that her savings are running out.
William now thinks its impractical to keep pursuing what is not happening for her.
“It feels so stupid to be complaining about this, but I want to talk about the reality of pursuing a career in modeling,” said Williams.
“It is an industry that has a lot of rejection. To get rejected and put back again over and over,” added the model who also doubles up as a nanny.
TikToker turns 24 in two months
Williams started modelling at 19 years old and will be 24 years old in two months.
“As I get older, I’m always put on hold for a job and then it falls through, time is running out. I haven’t had serious work in four months,” she disclosed.
“There’s an element of survival, you know, I need to make enough money to live. I’ve taken a huge risk to move to another country and live off of my savings to try and pursue modelling,” said Williams.
Many people took to the comment section to offer the young model some advice and encouragement.
“Keep going but I would recommend a plan B too, because most models I know have a back up plan/do other passions when they aren’t booking,” one online user suggested.
“Rejection makes you stronger, don’t give up! Hey good thing happens in time. Loved your content in TikTok! Good luck dear!” another person said.
