AMERICUS, GA (WTVM) — If you’ve ever thought about becoming a model, you’ll have the opportunity on March 22 to make that dream a reality.

Exotica Modeling Agency will be conducting a perspective model search at the Hampton Inn in Americus, GA from 10 a.m. to noon. Exotica is owned by Americus native Angela Jackson Engram, who realized a dream a few years ago when she started the agency.

According to Engram, Exotica’s philosophy is to provide high quality representation for its models and superior customer service to its customers.

“We’ve signed a few models already and we want to keep growing our roster,” said Engram, who entered a few pageants growing up and has always been fascinated by the modeling business. “People usually only think of runway models when they think of modeling, but models are needed in many other areas, such as print ads, commercials, and more. Exotica’s goal is to provide models in these niche markets and maximize other opportunities for our models.”

Exotica is based in Atlanta, but Engram says there’s talent all over Georgia and it was important to have a model search in her native southwest Georgia.

“Americus is my hometown, so I’m thrilled to be able to come home and see all the talented people not just in Sumter County, but all of southwest Georgia,” said Engram, who frequently visits visit his mother and other family members throughout the year. “Exotica is growing very quickly, and we want to be able to attract talent from all over the state, and this area is definitely a great place to visit. We look forward to having a great crowd and no matter what your race , age or nationality. If you have a passion for modeling, we want to see you there!”

Women are advised to wear fitted jeans, a solid color top and heels. Hair should be away from face, and no makeup or jewelry. Men are asked to wear jeans and a solid color top and children should just dress comfortably. There is no charge for this event.
