Robin Buss in Hong Kong
So much time has gone by since I wrote my first blog. I was a new model, in my first foreign market, trying to swim the vast ocean of possibility. I gained so much experience in Hong Kong, and in Milan last summer. Two very diverse markets, both of which I love.

Now that I have worked in this industry for two and a half years, I can say with confidence that I am a professional model. I know how to wow a client, how to connect with all types of photographers, how to take the runway by storm. Even more, I know how to let go of the disappointments; how to grapple with my self doubt and emerge an even stronger person. I've learned how to channel my fear into a driving force.

This industry is a tough one to work in. As a girl I already scrutinized my looks, but when that's what you're selling, it becomes a whole new ball game! You can lose yourself in all the opinions of what you "are" and "are not." I've had to learn a lot of acceptance and patience with myself.

But you know what? I have learned so much. Not just for modelling, but for life. What I really value is how all of these experiences charge my life with the means to succeed.

Girls, whether you've been working a day or a decade, I salute you. It is no easy task being a model, but if you can take something good away with you at the end of the day (whether that's a better sense of yourself or an accessory from the shoot!) then you too will succeed. In life.

Farewell friends, and thanks for listening. This is my last blog for a while, and I want to say that it has been a pleasure! You can reach me through Modelresource - I am always up for sharing advice (if you hadn't noticed!)

This is one of my favourite sayings: Blessed are those who are flexible, for they shall never be bent out of shape. So go girls (and boys). Go out into this wide world and show 'em what you got. I may see you out there.
