Motivational – What It’s Truly Like to Be a Dark Skin Fashion Model (2020) Mariette Valsan, model and actor, talks about how she got spotted by a well-known designer, got her first ad commercial for Cocacola, quit her job and took up modeling full time. She wants to talk about the stigma attached to dark skin in the industry. She was once rejected by a casting director and was not allowed to even give the audition just because of the color of her skin. She was interviewed by The Guardian about her the stigma attached to dark skin in the modeling industry. As models and actors face a lot of rejections during auditions, she feels one must not take these rejections personally. She suggests one must have a growth mindset and keep learning instead of feeling stressed about rejections. Her inspirational failure story will definitely inspire the fashion and film industry to break the stigma and embrace all skin colors and all body types. Mariette Valsan, actor and model.
