Heather - Canada's Next Top ModelAge: 21
Height: 5’10”
Hometown: Halifax, NS
Occupation: Student

Heather has wanted to model for as long as she can remember. When she was only seven years old, she used to put on her own mini fashion shows for her parents (or whoever else she could get to watch!). She didn’t know there was such a thing as professional modeling until she discovered FASHIONTELEVISION and quickly became hooked.

Modeling on and off since she’s been 14, Heather had the chance to travel to Paris when she was 16 and do a number of photo shoots, including one in an old boutique hotel with corsets and vintage dresses. Even though she calls it one of the most exciting experiences she’s ever had, she admits she wasn’t quite ready for it at the time. “I was just really shy and when I got there I was kind of culture shocked and it was a little bit scary so I wanted to come home.” But it didn’t stop her from doing local modeling and she’s now ready to take the next step.

Waiting to find out if she made it on to CANADA’S NEXT TOP MODEL was definitely nerve-wracking, she says. “It’s completely surreal. It got to the last day before I got called and I was scared,” says Heather, who cites Linda Evangelista and Heather Marks as her favourite supermodels.

“I think that I’m CANADA’S NEXT TOP MODEL because I have the potential to be a model, but also because I want to show that modeling has more to it than just a pretty face and the right body. I want to show that you can be a strong leader for young girls who I think need something like that right now.”
