From WKRN.com:  A really good story for parents interested in getting their kids into modeling.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Ever wonder if your child has what it takes to be a model?

Hope Sheffield is proof it can happen. She had a successful 20-year modeling career and traveled the world.

“If so, one per week but I still have to do sports and school,” said T.J.


Sheffield says it is a fun industry, but it is also plagued with scammers hoping to cash in on starry-eyed parents who believe their child has something special.

When she was young, Sheffield told News 2 her parents got ripped off. They paid a few thousand dollars for her to attend a modeling convention.
