In our line of work, there is no batter payoff than seeing one of our talents realizing their potential and running with it. Nothing makes us more proud than seeing their success as they blossom into their niche. Marissa Irwin has done just that!
Marissa was originally struggling with confidence issues after undergoing some physical and medical obstacles in her life. She felt like she wasn’t the beautiful woman that she wanted to be. At her mother’s suggestion, she decided to involve herself in something positive to boost her esteem. She soon enrolled into Barbizon of Akron’s training center to gain confidence and excelled in the female modeling and personal development programs.
After graduating the program, Marissa signed with Pro Model & Talent Management and decided to pursue the national/ international market. “I thought it was my chance to model on a bigger level, meet new people, see new things and make great money,” she said.
When asked if she ever thought she would become a model, she enthusiastically replied: “No! Absolutely not!” She credits her instructors at Barbizon for teaching her how to walk and move in front of the camera in addition to helping her with posture and manners and especially how to audition. The thing she is most thankful for learning is how to carry herself in regular day-to-day life.
You can now see Marissa in magazines, print ads, special events in the entertainment community, on television, and she’s even broken through to the big screen! Making it big isn’t easy and Irwin has showed us how possible it is to make your dream a reality. We have already seen great things from Marissa Irwin and are excited to see just how far she will go!
