Florencia Uehara

"My name is Florencia and I'm from Buenos Aires, Argentina.

In the beginning I never thought that I'll be a model. It always seemed difficult for me because all the companies wanted a type of girl that I'll never be. I always sent my portfolio to these companies even if I didn't have the requirements, but obviously they didn't accept me. People told me things like "You can't be a model with that height" but also, the people around me told me that if I want to be a model, I have to fight for it! One of my friends studied Clothing Design and needed a model, so I accepted and at that moment, it all started.

A photographer saw me and contacted me on Instagram for work. Then pages of clothes, bags, jewelry and other stuff contacted me too.

I understand that I'll never gain more height but we are in the 21st century and I love that those things are changing. If you want to be a model, you can. The only requirement you have to have is to be a human."
