Pearson student juggles school life with promising modelling career Perez Hilton compares teen to Naomi Campbell Herieth Paul at Angie's Model and Talent International in Ottawa. "Two days ago I Googled a picture, I wrote ‘Herieth Elle Canada cover,' and the picture just showed up, and I showed my mom and I was like, ‘Oh my God.'" METRO Published: June 09, 2011 5:00 a.m. Last modified: June 08, 2011 10:32 p.m. It wasn't Herieth Paul's lifelong dream to become a model, but the 16-year-old Ottawa student is days away from seeing her face on the front cover of Elle Canada magazine. "It looks amazing. I couldn't even believe it, I'm still in shock," said Paul yesterday in downtown Ottawa. The Tanzania-born teen came to Ottawa four years ago and lives with her mother while her father stayed behind for work. Two years later, Angie's Model and Talent International changed her life. "People were always telling me, ‘You are so tall and pretty you should be a model,'" said Paul. "Then when we moved to Canada I thought it was a good opportunity and I came to Angie's on a Sunday on an open call." Since then, the modelling agency has helped her land photo shoots in L.A., Phoenix and Colombia. The July issue of Elle Canada will hit the shelves within the next week, and Paul cannot wait to see it. Until then, though, she'll have to focus on her math homework.
