Model Management Agency - MMA has been helping people to pursue their dreams for 23 years. Serving models in the Philadelphia area since 1989, the agency has grown to become one of the most respected talent agencies in the Tri-State area. Ellen Wasser-Hrin is its Founder and Director.
Confidence, humility, intelligence are just some of the words that can be used to described Samantha Paisley. This talented individual already has tear sheets that some might regard as a career's worth of success. At 16, this Model Management Agency client's future has yet to fully unfold.
Character enables talent to thrive
True achievers live well-balanced lives. They don't limit themselves, or see limitations within others. It is that specific trait within someone's character that provides a path for others to learn from and emulate.
Samantha's overall success was partially revealed, in-part, through a response that she provided during our conversation. She believed that she had achieved success from the outset of her career because of the age bracket (8-12) that she was in when her career first began with MMA in 2005 when she was nine-years-old.
“Sam really wanted to do this. I didn't choose the path for her, she choose it for herself,” Tess said.
Tess advised that her daughter was selected for seven out of ten bookings during her early years. Generally, one out of ten is the industry norm.
Ian and Tess Paisley have supported their only child while she has been building her future career and have also ensured that education is her main focus during this part of her life.
