    The easiest way to possibly get a modeling contract is to send 2 pictures of yourself (one head shot, one body shot) to the agencies along with your measurements and contact info. And don't pay for professional photos to do this; snapshots are just fine and agencies prefer them because they can see more of you and less of perfect lighting and make-up. Run a search online to find agencies that interest you.

    As far as acting, prepare a monologue or two or three and then find some agencies that might interest you. Call around and get info to see if they have open calls or if you have to schedule an audition. They may ask you to do a cold read, so be ready for that, too. Also run a search for acting agencies you might be interested in.

    Do your best, and if the agencies like you, they'll call you back. I'd suggest looking for agencies that do both modeling AND talent, to get the best of both worlds.

    If you don't get any luck there, shoot for a college with a broad academic program so you have the freedom to take theater AND science courses and choose between which one interests you most and you have the strongest passion for. I go to Temple University in Philadelphia, and we're GREAT for that. :)

    Hope that helped, good luck!
