Knoxville, Tenn.’s Joshua Carroll has a simple message.
Don’t give up on your dreams, said the 17-year old model.
“I hope to accomplish so much through (the fashion) industry,” said Joshua, who is a model/ actor with the Stair Agency. “I have a passion for fashion and modeling. I hope to use this as a platform to encourage other young people to never give up on their dreams.”
One step along Carroll’s road to success is a victory at the recent Magnifique fashion competition in Pigeon Forge, Tenn. The competition is organized by former “America’s Next Top Model” contestant Victoria Henley.
This self-proclaimed “lover of Jesus” is also a ukulele player and a soccer player. “I enjoy spending my summers at a summer camp called Camp Hope,” said the high school senior.
Joshua also is quick to offer a list of thank yous for his success as a model thus far.
“I have to give credit to my supportive family, girlfriend, Adam and Emily Stair, Victoria Henley, and the many friends I have made along the way,” said Joshua.
