Every year at GEMINI, Audrey asks each of her instructors / students to select a word of the year. This is a word that you can use to inspire you each day, and remind you of what’s important.
This year i have decided to choose “Aspire: to long, aim, or seek ambitiously; be eagerly desirous,especially for something great or of high value”
As many of you know i took on some new challenges this year. I have started teaching the MIT (Model in Training) Program, which is new to Gemini this year. This class is taught by myself and Ema Suvajac (www.emasuvajac.com / http://www.facebook.com/pages/Ema-Suvajac-Photography/143199739057890). This program has 37 students ranging in age from 12 – 18. It has been an exciting year so far, but i am more excited for next year. All of the students are now online on the GEMINI Models website and many of them are starting to book work with the agency. In the new year we will be completing 4 more photo shoots in different themes to build their portfolios. Good luck girls – I’m excited to hear your word of the year!
I purchased my first home this year. On November 18th, 2011 i took possession of my condo. I’m living on the 4th floor of a beautiful renovated factory style loft. I have acquired such luxuries as a dishwasher, some rather large factory doors, and my favourite thing of all must be the oversized bath tub. Many more baths to come for 2012. I’m excited for the challenges that owning a home brings, and i’m proud to say that i was able to purchase on my own, although i will have a room mate for 2012.
Gemini Moved! As many of you know, most of my day is spent at GEMINI Models working as an Agent / Administration. Well in September 2011 we had to relocate to avoid the Weber Street construction which will take place in the next few years. Our old location was quaint and comfortable, but the new loft style offices are beyond amazing.
I started the lauriecadmancreative concept. My website is still under construction, but the site is and will be lauriecadman.com. I’m attempting to design my own website and hopefully it will be completely live early in 2012. There were so many successes to celebrate in this business i don’t know where to begin. Special thanks to all of my friends for their continued support.
I find with all of these changes I really bounce awake in the morning, refreshed and inspired. I want to take that inspiration and really aspire in my day-to-day goals.
So, challenge yourself for 2012 and choose your word of the year!
