Las Cruces teen conquering modeling world

LAS CRUCES, New Mexico (KVIA) — At just 17 years old, Brooke Freilino is living an experience most young girls can only dream of. She has modeled at New York fashion week and is preparing to walk in Milan.

The Centennial High senior tells ABC-7 it all started 8 months ago, when she signed up for Miss Organ Mountains Teen Pageant. She placed 4th in the competition, but it opened the doors to fashion and modeling.

Freilino says designers who'd seen her head shots started contacting her with offers to model in New York. She says at first she couldn't believe it, but then started feeling excited.

She told ABC-7 modeling at New York fashion week was surreal, and she can't wait to experience it again. She said for now, she'll be cheering with her team at Centennial High as they prepare to close out their senior year. But come September, she'll be heading to Milan to model, and also has more offers for New York fashion week.
