When One Door Closes, Another One Opens: Amanda Martin

1:44 PM

Pro-Model and Talent Management (PMTM) is proud to introduce 21-year-old model and actress, Amanda Martin. Amanda is from Wadsworth, Ohio and describes herself as "a typical country girl". She enjoys fishing, hiking, riding four-wheelers, and line dancing. She was able to graduate early from the University of Akron with a bachelor's degree in biology, and she currently works full-time as an orthodontic clinical assistant. Amanda's evenings are spent caring for foster children, as she is a certified respite foster parent.

Amanda has always felt like her calling in life was to be a dentist, but she recently faced some serious difficulty getting into the right dental school. She described that experience as being devastating, and she felt lost. Looking for something new to put her energy into, Amanda discovered Pro-Model and Talent Management. Soon after becoming a part of the agency, she also discovered her hidden talent and passion for acting. After a month of working with the agency, she auditioned for the International Modeling and Talent Association (IMTA) convention. Amanda was accepted and attended IMTA NYC this past July. She told us that things seemed to be moving fast, and it felt surreal. She also shared that she initially felt unsure because she didn't feel like she would be successful, and lacked confidence in her talent.

Despite her concerns, she continued to work hard on her skills. As a result of her performance at IMTA, Amanda was awarded three honorable mentions and came in the top ten for female actor of the year. In addition to her awards, she was offered a callback, which led her to sign with MMG - NY, LA, and Canada less than a week after returning from the convention! Amanda said that IMTA was the best week of her life. "I made friends that will last a lifetime, memories that I will tell my kids one day, and I came out stronger and more confident than ever!"

Amanda dreams of being in shows such as Grey's Anatomy and Big Bang Theory. Advice that she would give anyone wanting to pursue the modeling and talent industry is to trust yourself, embrace what makes you unique, and be bold. We think that's pretty awesome advice!

"Never in my life would I have imagined acting and modeling in New York and signing with an international agency," Amanda said. "However, it all happened because I took that leap, stepped outside of my comfort zone, and gave it my all. I am forever thankful for the hard work that the PMTM staff put into making this all possible. They are truly angels, and I couldn't ask for a better mother agency."

Pro-Model and Talent Management is proud of Amanda and her hard work. We can't wait to see what is next for this talented young lady!
