Success Story: Shelbi

""I can't thank you enough for all that you, and the Academy you have created with such talent, have taught me. For how much you have helped me appreciate my self, build up my self-confidence, and mold me into the model I am, I could not be more grateful. Through your very well-put-together Showcase I have met many people, talent and agents. I've had the opportunity to present myself to many well-known people, and been able to improve and better develop my modeling skills through the years. If not for you and your Academy, I would not have met Eddie Cotillon and developed the relationship I've been able to develop with him; I thank you for that. I hope you have a time full of joy and endless love with your family over the holidays, and have an amazing New Year!"

Shelbi has posed for art modeling at the Academy of Arts, walked the runway at Weddingfaire Fashion Shows 2012, 2013 and 2014, participated in bridal promotional photo shoots, as well as modeling many other fashion shows through the Bay Area. "
