At 16 years old, Morgan Malecha is just like your average teenager — she likes hanging out with her friends, watching Netflix, and dancing, but unlike most teenagers, Morgan has worn Chanel, shot with Seventeen Magazine and face-timed Gigi Hadid.
Scouted in the Mall of America, Morgan signed with Ignite Models a little over a year ago, and her one-of-a-kind beauty has since captured the attention of agencies around the world. Earlier this year she signed with our friends at Premium Models in Paris and New York Models, both of which represent our it-girl Ana Cristina. It seems like Morgan might be following in her footsteps.
This May, Morgan attended New York Model Management’s “Model Camp,” where a group of NYMM’s new faces gather in Connecticut for a crash course in modeling, filled with yoga on the beach, runway lessons, shoots with top photographers, and plenty of bonding — but it’s nothing like American’s Next Top Model.
“Besides shooting for Seventeen Magazine, I loved meeting 13 new best friends from all over the US and London at Model Camp” said Morgan. “All of the girls were so nice and it was sad to leave them.”
If she wasn’t going to model full-time, Morgan probably would have followed in her mother’s footsteps, pursuing a career in nursing, but she is excited about modeling because it will give her the opportunity to meet tons of cool new people and hopefully fulfill her dream of walking for Chanel and Carolina Herrera.
It’s safe to say big things are in store for this beauty.
