I got into IMTA and they once more convinced my parents to pay the money for me to go. If I remember correctly almost $5,000. I'm not sure between the classes and all the photos I was required to purchase and IMTA how much we exactly spent, but I'm sure my dad could dig up the information if anyone wanted it. I was fourteen at the time so I didn't know, but my dad did keep everything that came from them.
I would say roughly, give or take, we spent a total of $7-9,000. They promised to market me and pass out my comp cards to clients of theirs. I never once got a call to go on a job, but even now that I might be doing some modeling for another place, and I'm not paying hardly anything (only for my pictures to be updated). So it seems unbelievable that all these clients they supposedly had that not even one contacted me for a job. In fact I don't think any of the girls I was in class did either.
I'm very upset and disappointed about all this. I had my hopes built up at that young of an age to be crushed. And my parents lost thousands of dollars that we sure could use right now.
I think something needs to be done about this and I think they should be made to pay back us girls for STEALING our money. They need to answer for this and I'm willing to help out any way I can. (I'd also like my money back for my parents too.)
