What the parents say
“Justine is only 15 and a half years old, she’s very young but it’s a childhood dream. We must cultivate the dreams of our young: encourage them, support them and take them to the edge of their dreams.”
Mrs Alexandrapoulos, mother of Justine, finalist, France 2010.
“Over the last few months Alma has become more independent, she’s growing-up a little bit, and I think that’s great. She feels really good, she’s not at all stressed [about it]. These young girls are courageous to take on the catwalk in front of a professional jury, they are only 15 to 17 years-old, I find that amazing.”
Mrs. Durand, mother of Alma, Winner of Elite Model Look France 2010.
