Tell us about yourself.
My name is Hannah Brooke Ward I am from a very small town in West Virginia. I am a dancer and an aspiring singer. I am 17 years old and I have 2 siblings and an adorable dog named Bentley.
What is your biggest dream?
My biggest dream is to walk in New York Fashion Week and on a red carpet. Its an Absolute dream to be signed with Hannah Noelle Models and I am very excited to see where this journey takes me.
What does it mean to be your own kind of beautiful?
I think it means embracing who you are and your flaws. Your flaws are what makes you, you. In order really feel beautiful you must accept that no one can be absolutely perfect unless they believe it to be so.
Tell us about your modeling experience.
I am a new model meaning I don’t have a lot of experience but I do love to be photographed and I love meeting new people and seeing new things.
What is your dream brand to model for?
I’d love to model for Sherri Hill. I own a dress shop with only her dresses and that’s all I wear to formal events so I’d love to walk on her runway.
How would you describe your fashion style?
I have a very laid back style. I would call it quirky maybe a little trendy instagram ish...
How important is self-awareness and confidence to you in your everyday life?
I’m really not sure how to answer this if I’m being honest. I have a lot of confidence issues and I really always have. I am very self conscious about my size and skin and hair. I really believe other people cause our insecurities. It’s extremely sad to say I used to be a very confident person and I wore it everyday. I’ve learned to tune out the rude and awful things people say and I've now learnt to smile through it all and strut past my haters with more confidence than ever.
What makes you beautiful?
I believe my heart. I always try to help those in need. I always donate to charity and I give to the ones in need. That really makes me happy. I love to make other people happy.
What would you say to another girl your age who is struggling with their confidence?
I’d tell them to ignore those who say you can’t do what you want to do. I’d tell them if you want to model at a size 0 or a size 30 I say go for it. No one ever has to right to tell you that you’re not good enough. You are beautiful and no one can tell you otherwise. If you’re ever feeling like you’re not good enough remember someone loves you and someone thinks you’re the most beautiful girl in this world. You’re perfect in your own way so show your haters that you wont listen and they will stop talking.
