Get to know the agents – a girl talk behind the scenes with founders of Role Models Management!

Tune into today’s episode as I’m at the floor in Val’s house in Malibu, talking about body images, beauty standards and why we decided to start our very own agency. Val was discovered as a model in a mall at the incredibly young age of 2 and has been in the entertainment industry ever since. She and I connected via an email late 2016, and in January 2017 our journeys combined when we decided to start our own modeling agency – Role Models Mgmt – together.

Learn what we’ve learned about ourselves from being exploited in this industry, and why we think it’s important to empower models to be advocates for positive change!

About Val:

At the age of two, Val was scouted at a mall in Los Angeles, and has been working in the entertainment industry ever since. Her commercial credits include Nike,
Old Navy and Target, and in 2015 after shooting Straight Outta Compton, she put her career on hold to finish her degree in Art History and take time for her family.
Val has promoted environmental awareness, and animal activism since her early teens. In 2016 she graced billboards across America in the Let’s Recycle Right campaign. She and I connected late 2016, and one phone call was all it took for us to know that this journey of ours needed to begin. 


Val’s Retruth:

Being a vegan mom and raising a vegan child is awesome. People think that it’s bad for your child but it’s not, and both I and my daughter are living proof of that breastfeeding and raising a child on a plant-based diet is not only not bad, but in fact very healthy and beneficial for both the mother and the baby. Treat yourself and your child with respect and only accept good, cruelty-free and healthy foods.
