(WETM) – Katie Morse, a resident of Pine Valley, knew from an early age she wanted to be a fashion model. She was involved in singing, acting and performed at talent shows. But modeling was always her dream.
Morse realized her dream in November 2021. Morse explains how she was scrolling on the social media platform TikTok and came across a video promoting people to apply to walk in New Jersey’s Fashion Week. Katie was offered the opportunity after a two-round interview process.
After appearing in NJFW, Morse participated again in photoshoots. Recently, she walked in New York Fashion Week as a model for a local Bistro.
Morse, a senior at Horseheads High School is already planning what she wants to do in the future. As of now, Morse’s goal is to attend the University of Reading in Berkshire, England, with a major in Environmental Science. She plans to continue her modeling career, which she will do in London, the fashion capital.
Morse reminds us to all follow our dreams, no matter how big or small they may seem.
“There are so many opportunities and agencies and designers that would love to work with anybody,” Katie said. “So go for it and believe you can do it. There are not many limitations at this point.”
