OCO Junior Signs with Modeling Agency
Andi Longan signs with Vision Los Angeles to continue her modeling career.
Westlake Village, CA – October 30, 2015
Oaks Christian Online (OCO) Junior Andi Longan has recently signed with Vision Los Angeles, a selective model management agency located in Los Angeles, CA. The 5’11” high school student has done an e-news fashion segment, videos, test shoots, casting calls and would like to do runway and print modeling. Andi was introduced to the idea of modeling by her older sister, Shelby Longan, who is currently studying Neurobiology at ASU and who has high interest in the fashion industry. Andi has been scouted for several years and has been preparing since then for the 15-16 year-old category. Andi chose to go from the Oaks Christian main campus in Westlake Village, CA, to Oaks Christian Online high school to pursue this passion. “I also chose OCO because of its spiritual aspect; I want to keep my faith strong and keep it growing,” she says. “The Spiritual Life and Bible classes encourage me to take different perspectives on things, and they also allow me socialize with other online high school students."
Andi finds that the online courses are very similar to what she received on the premier, college-preparatory campus of Oaks Christian. “These online classes are challenging and effective. I have become less distracted and have learned to take one step at a time. I have time to be flexible within modeling and training at the gym, but I have to plan for the whole week. My dad helps me with scheduling and learning to be disciplined and organized.” Andi hopes to study business and fashion at New York University, Pepperdine or other colleges that the Oaks Christian and Oaks Christian Online college counselors help her narrow down. “I may also return to the main campus next year for my senior year; this has given me many more options."
