Charles Barkley started it 1st many years ago with the whole "I'm not a role model" thing. I think that it was disgraceful thing then and I think that it is still now. Wemay not have to hold our famous people to unrealistic high standards, but is asking them to be someone that our kids would like to be asking too much? If not, should we support them

Hello my name is Brittany, I also go by my stage name of Vashti Star.. I am a recent graduate student at Lewis University with the major of Sports Management. I love sports and I love modeling, therefore, I can't choose between the two for I love them both and know that I can do them both. My goals are to be the best that I can be in the modeling business that showcase a positive image and pursue a long time career in it. Also, along with my goals I want to make sure I work hard and get things done for the person that I am working for. I have learned a lot about the modeling business and I am still learning! I have done a lot more work now since I learned more about the modeling business so my credits below does not half describe the work I have done. Meanwhile, I am looking for more magazine work and tear sheets. I already have 3 publications with two of the cover and looking for more! If you would like to work with me, don't hesitate to contact me. I am just a message away. Also, like my page and invite others to http://www.facebook.com/VashtiStarr

What is a Role Model? Seems like an easy answer -- someone that inspires you. But there may be more permutations than that, so we thought we'd explore it a little more deeply, starting off with perhaps the mother of all role models, Eleanor Roosevelt. I met Shannon Butler when she gave me a tour of Val-Kill, Mrs. Roosevelt's private home. I was inspired by Shannon's enthusiam, knowledge & apparent joy in imparting it. That gives us a glimpse into what a role model can do.
Shannon graduated from SUNY New Paltz with a degree in history and is pursuing that further at University at Albany. She has worked on all that while working as a National Park Ranger! She calls herself all all-American Hudson Valley girl.
