    Hello my name is Ahneesha Gilder and modeling is and has always been a dream of mine. I just graduated High School and I turn 18 in just 14 more days. I have been watching ANTM ever since I was a little girl and now my time is almost here when I can actually try out. People have always told me that I cant to it and at a point of time I believed them but it is my dream and I just can’t let it slip away. They tell me your very pretty but your not skinny or they say to bad you just missed the height requirement. I have seen before that exceptions have been made and I know I am worthy enough and passionate enough to get and exception. I really hope that you will take this comment into consideration. I really believe I can do great things. I have been practicing and putting my heart and soul into this for so long and I will never give up.

    I am 5?7 and good looking/cute for an Asian American. I don’t see that much Asian girls on America’s Next top Model so I think I should have a chance to be on there to represent my culture and race! Besides, I have enough confidence and swag!

    I get told on a daily basis that I need to be modeling, I tried out before on the short model search via mail and did not receive a call back. I am the fiercest 5’2″ model that can conquer the runway like a 5’7″ girl. I really would like the chance to prove to the world what I could do! Find me on facebook keanna garner from Seattle. I look forward to future shorter model searches and hopefully to hear back this time…thank you

  17. Gabby

    Does the video need to arrive in Santa Monica on the 15th or can it be postmarked sent on the 15th and arrive at a later day?

  18. Gloria

    I’m only 17 years of age and I have no modeling experience because I don’t know how to get started. I would love an opportunity to model for an agency because its my dream. I’m 5”11 1/2 and very thin in the waist. When I turn 18 in December, I’m most definately trying out for Top Model.

  19. When is cycle 19???. I would LOVE to be ANTM. Modeling is my TRUE passion. I’ll be 18 Feb. 07, 2012.
