|6 Sally's grandmother doesn't want to listen to any more discussions.|
The problem is that my teachers at school think I ought to stay on and take my exams before I accept the offer so I've got some choices for the future if this doesn't work out. But I think that if I don't take this opportunity now, it may not happen again. When I asked the agency, they said they couldn't give any guarantees about a future with them if I didn't start now. So it would be a big risk to delay.
The other problem is my parents. My dad is all for it, he says I can put by some capital and I can worry about exams later on. And he has spoken to the agency who say that they will take care of me and all that, so he's happy. But my mum says that I should stay at school for another two years, maybe do a little modelling in the holidays and then see how I feel after I have taken my exams. My gran who lives with us says she's fed up with us all going on about it. I can't please everyone, and I don't know what to do!'
