This place is an absolute scam. My parents did this out of something nice figuring it would be good for me to learn some of the things the classes would teach me and thought having an extra income, while I was at college, could help fund my way through. Instead, I, and other girls from my class, have not recieved any offers from the company. In whole, we've probably spent about 1600 at least for the company costs and in return for nothing. I feel absolutely horrible that my parents wasted their money and I cannot pay them back. If I had only known how terrible of a scam this would be, I would have much rather put that money towards my college fund.

AUTHOR: MODEL MOM - (United States of America)

I think you really are looking at life the wrong way. We all have to look at things positively and make the best of each situation. You could have told your parents no I do not want to do this. No one promised you that you were going to be a great model. My daughter and her friend are taking Barbrizon classes and are about to graduate. If they get some modeling jobs great but it was the experience and what they are learning in the classes that they love. They both are very very happy with what they have learned and they are applying it every day. My dauhter is more confident, and more social. She wants to go into broadcasting some day and what she is learning has already been helpful. We think the classes are a step to her reaching her goal. Like I tell my daughters... you have to make things happen for yourself. You cant expect someone else to do it for you. We all love the classes at Barbrizon and  i plan on my daughter taking more once she graduates. If you go to college, they give you the education but do not promise you a job once you graduate. It is up to you to apply what you have learned and make things happen for yourself! I say thankyou barbrizon for what you have done for my daughter all ready. I am thankful that I am able to give her this experience with you.
