Jing Wen, center, of Guangzhou, China, waits to rehearse with other models before the Prabal Gurung Spring 2015 collection show Saturday, Sept. 6, 2014, during Fashion Week in New York. Jing Wen, 19, began modeling at age 17. She says that as a little girl, she loved the idea of modeling, but never dreamed that she would end up walking runways internationally. Although her mother and sister are back in China, she doesn’t often suffer from homesickness. For Jing Wen, the struggle to stay emotionally balanced is far more difficult. “You have to keep your heart strong,” she explains. “It’s so hard to get the show, so you have to [stay] peaceful, all the time.” As for her future plans, Jing Wen sees herself as an entrepreneur. She says she plans to go back to school after modeling “and maybe after few years I will have my coffee shop.” (AP Photo/Jason DeCrow)

Canadian model Sophie Touchet has makeup applied before the DKNY Spring 2015 collection show Sunday, Sept. 7, 2014, during Fashion Week in New York. Touchet, 20, from a small town in Quebec, Canada, says she was working at a Best Buy electronics store when she was scouted by a photographer in January of this year. A month later she modeled in her first New York Fashion Week and ended up doing 43 shows in four big cities. She said, "My parents were freaking out. They were like 'What? You’re going to Milan?' and I was like 'Yeah, I don’t really know how it happened but I’m in Milan!' " She said she packed a bag for one week and ended up leaving home for more than two months, so when she got back home it was like having two lives, "I had my normal life and had my life when I was a model."

Max Esken, of Dusseldorf, rehearses before the Tim Coppens Spring 2015 collection show Sunday, Sept. 7, 2014, during Fashion Week in New York. Esken, 21, who was just scouted in January, is working at Fashion Week in New York for the first time. Apart from meeting new people, Esken says one of the best parts about the job is getting to travel around the world. “I’ve traveled to so many cities where I’ve never been before, it’s really good. I like it.” Esken doesn’t like being on the road for too long, however. “I want to chill with my friends at home,” he says, “three weeks is enough for me, and then back to Germany.” (AP Photo/Jason DeCrow)

Max Esken of Dusseldorf, Germany, has makeup applied backstage before the Tim Coppens Spring 2015 collection show Sunday, Sept. 7, 2014, during Fashion Week in New York. Esken, 21, is brand new to modeling, having just been scouted in January in his native Germany. Although this is his first time working at Fashion Week in New York, he already knows that the most difficult part of the job for him is the schedule. Between having to attend so many castings, go-sees and fittings, Esken says, “You’re always in a hurry, and you can’t relax.” Once he gets to a show though, he says things slow down considerably. “The jobs are almost, like, half an hour hair and makeup and then you can chill, relax, smoke cigarettes,” he explains.

Stephanie Joy Field, center, of Sydney, Australia, rehearses before the Prabal Gurung Spring 2015 collection show Saturday, Sept. 6, 2014, during Fashion Week in New York. Field, 19, who has only been modeling since January, was actually scouted in Australia at age 13 but decided to finish high school before beginning her career. Although her family remains back in Sydney, being homesick isn’t a problem for her. “I went to boarding school, so I’m kind of used to not being at home.” One aspect of modeling that does challenge her, however, is the constant scrutiny. “You always have to be...on show, and, like, presenting yourself right,” she explains, “because...everyone’s always watching you.” One thing she appreciates about modeling, though, is the people. “I love meeting...amazing people, and working with, like, some really amazing clients,” she says, adding, “and you get to have lots of fun while doing it.” Field plans to study university level law and psychology by correspondence next year, with an eye towards her life outside of the fashion industry. “I’m just gonna see what happens with the modeling, and I’ll have a fall-back if it doesn’t come through.” (AP Photo/Jason DeCrow)

Abiah Hostvedt, 23, of Montego Bay, Jamaica, has makeup applied backstage before the Tim Coppens Spring 2015 collection show Sunday, Sept. 7, 2014, during Fashion Week in New York. A transplant from Jamaica to New York, Hostvedt, was scouted in Lower Manhattan’s TriBeCa neighborhood at age 17. Having modeled in Paris, London and Milan, Hostvedt says he likes to “use fashion as an excuse to see the world.” Estimating that he is on the road four to five months a year, Hostvedt says that he gets homesick “all the time,” but that using video chat to stay in touch with family, including his daughter, really helps. Hostvedt says people are the greatest part of his job. “A lot of people like to talk about how the fashion industry is, y’know, everybody is a little bit fake. But I love the people,” he says. “It is what you make it. If it’s fake to you then chances are you’re just treating it like it’s some sort of game, and it’s, y’know, la-la land. But it’s not, it’s real people.” Although Hostvedt eventually wants to move into acting, he can’t see himself giving up modeling. “I think I’m always gonna model, until the day I die.” (AP Photo/Jason DeCrow)

Currently dating a fashion design student, Zhao has ideas about one day creating looks of his own. Not ready to transition just yet, Zhao sees himself modeling for another three or four years. He says being photographed and walking in shows are his favorite parts of the job, explaining that, “You can show off to many people.” (AP Photo/Jason DeCrow)

Mona Matsuoka, 16, of Tokyo, waits backstage before the Monique Lhuillier Spring 2015 collection show Friday, Sept. 5, 2014, during Fashion Week in New York. An only child born to a Japanese mother and American father, Matsuoka began modeling in her hometown of Tokyo at age 10, after her mother put her into a modeling agency. Deciding at age 13 that she wanted to pursue modeling internationally, she had to wait until her 16th birthday before she could begin the next phase of her career. "I’m really homesick," she says, when asked about life on the road. Matsuoka says she struggles most with the uncertainty that permeates her essentially freelance lifestyle of modeling. “You don’t know what’s gonna happen." Nevertheless, Matsuoka views her modeling career in the long-term. “I would like to do it my whole life if I can." (AP Photo/Jason DeCrow)

Fashion model Mari Agory of South Sudan has glitter applied to her eyelids backstage before the Christian Siriano Spring 2015 collection show Saturday, Sept. 6, 2014, during Fashion Week in New York. Born in Khartoum, Sudan, Agory’s family lived in what is now known as South Sudan. The youngest of eight children, she and her family fled to Egypt in 1999 during her country’s civil war, where they were granted political asylum by the United States, eventually settling in San Diego, Calif. Agory, 23, was discovered at age 20 by a photographer while attending her junior year of college. “It’s considered late in the industry,” she explains, “because girls start really young.” For Agory, homesickness is her biggest hurdle. “Especially when I go over to Europe,” she explains, “but when I’m in New York, for some reason, I still feel close to my family because I’m in the States.” Despite sometimes going a full year between visits home, Agory admits that life on the road can also be rewarding. “I get to see the beauty of this world, and it’s part of my job,” she explains. When asked about how long she sees herself modeling, Agory jokes, “I’m gonna do it until my skin starts crackin’.” Although she has not been able to return to her native country since her family fled, Agory, who studied public health in college, hopes to utilize her education and opportunities generated by her modeling career to contribute something positive to her home country. “There’s just something that pulls me back.” (AP Photo/Jason DeCrow)

Adesuwa Pariyapasat, 22, of Benin City, Nigeria, listens to music while her fingernails are painted backstage before the Rebecca Minkoff Spring 2015 collection show Friday, Sept. 5, 2014, during Fashion Week in New York. Pariyapasat began modeling only recently, but was scouted while in school in her native Nigeria at age 17. Despite leaving behind both her parents, two brothers and a sister, homesickness isn't a big problem for her. "I get homesick every now and then, but I’ve moved so much in my life...it doesn’t matter where I am, really." She feels the biggest misconception about modeling is that it's easy, saying that there is "a lot of psychological damage, a lot of psychological turmoil" involved. With regards to her future in modeling, "I don’t even plan that far, I just want to live every day. Life is about finding things that come at you, so, who knows?" (AP Photo/Jason DeCrow)

Fashion model Dasha Jold, 18, of Yekaterinburg, Russia, has her nails done backstage before the Monique Lhuillier Spring 2015 collection show Friday, Sept. 5, 2014, during Fashion Week in New York. Jold was scouted on the street in her native Russia, at age 17. She struggles sometimes with homesickness, but says that keeping in touch through services like Skype helps ease those feelings. "I’m not missing the place, I’m missing the people there," Jold says, speaking about her hometown. Asked about the hardest aspect of modeling, she mentions the physical demands of the job. She explains that sometimes you just "need to recover, vacation, and then you can be fresh again - your skin, your head” and, she says laughing, “your feet.” Jold is guarded when speaking about her future in modeling, with evolving milestones. “This is my secret which I keep inside, and I’m trying to reach these things. I’m not trying to say, ‘Oh, I wanna do that, and when I will do that I will just stop modeling,’ ” she explains. “You are getting more and more goals with time. So you are reaching something, and then you have a new goal, something bigger.” (AP Photo/Jason DeCrow)
