Runway DreamsWade Phelps
Name: Chelsea Hart
She’s done modeling work since she was a little girl, but this Woodside wonder is looking to break out and be a star in the modeling world. Because she’s not as tall as a typical model, Chelsea said she wants to expand what people expect a model to look like.
“I have a lot of younger cousins, and I want to show them that there are different ways to be beautiful, that it doesn’t have to be the same thing you see on TV all the time,” she said.
She said she hopes that working with Shortstack Modeling will open up more doors for her.
When she’s not in front of the camera, Chelsea spends her time studying to be a physical therapist. Though she doesn’t get a lot of free time between modeling and school, the lifelong Woodside native uses the time she does get to explore the borough.
“I like to spend a lot of time in Whitestone,” she said. “I like to go out there for the parks and the bridges. It’s a different side of Queens. It’s like a whole different world.
“Queens comes down to the diversity,” she said. “There are so many different things to do, so many different places to eat.”
