Shaneal Gaither Shares Her Amazing IMTA LA '19 Experience!

4:56 PM

Meet Pro-Model and Talent Management’s (PMTM) 38-year-old actress, Shaneal Gaither! Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, Shaneal has enjoyed a life-long passion for athletics, competing in bowling, softball, and basketball during her school days. Shaneal’s greatest joy has been raising her child and dedicating herself as both a wife and mother. In her free time, she loves to relax, and finds great enjoyment in the simple things! 

Shaneal always had an interest in modeling, and despite discouragement along the road, had always hoped she could get into the industry! Her opportunity came the day Shaneal met the staff at Pro-Model and Talent Management, and she never has looked back! Shaneal’s experience with Pro-Model and Talent Management led her to audition for the International Modeling and Talent Association (IMTA) convention. After wowing the scouts, she accepted an invitation to chase her dreams in beautiful Los Angeles!

Her biggest goal before attending IMTA was to perform with confidence and courage. The Pro-Model and Talent Management staff helped her develop the industry skills needed to achieve her dreams, while providing her with the best possible support system and guidance. The IMTA convention was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and she was well-prepared to make the most of it!

The IMTA convention week kicked-off, and with it came many new opportunities for Shaneal! Her favorite talent competition was the Cold Read, because it allowed her to express herself genuinely while having fun performing. Shaneal was very successful in her competitions, achieving honorable mentions in Cold Read 
and Theatrical Headshots. She was also the winner of the Monologue competition. Perhaps her most exciting and honorable award was second-runner up for Female Actor of the Year! Congratulations, Shaneal!
IMTA brought Shaneal the opportunity to experience her biggest dreams of being a model and actor! Shaneal received a lot of interest from managers and agents at IMTA, but yet to make a decision on who will represent her in the national market. The advice she would give to other individuals planning to attend a convention is to “always be your authentic self."  Trusting herself and her own path gave Shaneal confidence in pursuing the entertainment industry.  No matter the challenges anyone can strive to chase their dreams with constant motivation! 

Shaneal is enjoying her life and eagerly looking to the future! We are very proud of Shaneal’s dedication to honing her craft, and her phenomenal performance at the IMTA LA ‘19 convention. We are ecstatic to have Shaneal as part of the PMTM family,  
and we cannot wait to see where the national market takes her!
