    While his former classmates go every morning at the polyvalente Hyacinthe-Delorme in Saint-Hyacinthe, Carol-Ann Morin travel around the world to participate in fashion shows and photo sessions.

    She will travel to Paris in the end of the week where one of his photographs will be exhibited at the museum of the Louvre.

    Since last year, the contracts are linked at a crazy pace. She needs to work up to six days per week. The decision not to return to school in September was self-evident at this stage of his career, but the young woman does not exclude return to it later.

    Carol-Ann Morin is a far cry from the minimum wage that affects several of his friends in secondary 4 in the restaurants or the shops. It can make about 50 $ an hour for the photo sessions that last for three or four hours each. It is variable, but it may participate in three or four shoots per week.

    An easy choice

    “I have trouble to realize all I have accomplished up to now. But this is really what I want to do with my life, so the choice seemed easy, ” she explained about her decision to put her studies aside.

    She is especially proud to have one of his pictures in the Louvre.

    “This is an important achievement of my career to find my photo in one of the most important art galleries in the world. It is really special, I am still in shock, ” said Carol-Ann Morin.

    One of his dreams would be to be selected for a parade of Victoria’s Secret.

    A dream that may not be inaccessible, according to the fashion photographer Sylvain Perrier, who has worked a few times with the teenager.

    “She has an aura of incredible, I have a dozen pictures of it and I wouldn’t be surprised they find any takers,” said Sylvain Perrier.

    “Among the 600 models photographed in my career, there is none who has the talent of Carol-Ann. She is special, I know she’s going to break through. “

    He believes it has the talent to become a celebrity within a few years.
