Eliza Cole: Future Supermodel Extraordinaire

"My name is Eliza Cole, I am 20 years old from South Carolina, a true Southern Belle. I am a full-time cosmetologist with dreams and aspirations to be a full-time model.

Creating art with my body is the ultimate self expression for me.  How does what you do benefit others?   Modeling helps others by providing a vision. It provides a fantasy for other to see themselves in a different light. My career is also great for creative expression. There are no creative limits in fashion. Describe your career journey and how it led you to where you are now. My career has been nothing short of a roller coaster.

My journey has also shown me I have a drive to help others, this drive has lead me into being a fitn
