The Not-So-Glamorous World of Modelling with Ebonie Finley
In this episode Erin chats with model, world traveler and founder of Generation Nomad, Ebonie Finley about the parts of the modelling world that we don’t see behind those glossy images.
Ebonie was a contestant on Season 3 of Canada’s Next Top Model and modelled in Canada, the US and South Africa. After crossing paths in Whistler, BC and hearing her story Erin felt compelled to share her story.
The girls chat about expectations on girls in the industry, the lifestyle when the lights and camera have been put away and the underlying theme of “you’re not enough”.
