My name is Mark Coleman. I am 20yrs old. I currently live in Augusta,Georgia in the United States, however I am originally from Bridgetown,Barbados. I am also a sophomore in college. I have dreamt about becoming a professional model since the age of 10, more specifically working in the areas of Commercial Print and Editorial Print. I want to make a difference in other people's lives through my platform of modeling. I want other boys, girls, men and women to be encouraged to follow their dreams and to never give up on themselves no matter what their individual circumstances may be. I want to become a Philanthropist, starting an organization targeted towards helping young children and teens realize their self-worth and potential in life, giving them the tools necessary to develop high self-esteem and become successful, productive members of society as this is a huge problem for the children of this generation. I have been studying the art form of modeling for over a decade now. I know that it can be a very cut throat business and that you have to have tough skin. I am very much so able to take criticism from designers, photographers, agents etc... and not take it personal. This is a business. I know that I am to be professional at all times in any setting especially when I am on a set or in a photography studio. I am to stay focused, have high energy and listen very closely to the photographer(s). I am very aware of what it is like being a working model. It is highly imperative that I eat well, exercise and maintain a balanced diet. Models' working hours tend to be long and can be stressful so having a balanced lifestyle is also extremely important and I know I can do that. PLEASE GIVE ME A CHANCE, so that I may have the opportunity to show you what I bring to the table, which is confidence, a willingness to learn and a burning determination in me to be the very best that I can be, working hard and doing what it takes to do an amazing job and produce amazing photos.
