– Hello, judges!My name is Mamé, I'm 23, and I'm from Silver Spring, Maryland.
I'm Miss Maryland USA, and I've been modeling since I was like 6 years old.
I've just donelittle things here and there for local designers, and I just feel my passion, my drive, my workethic, and just my willingness to learn will carry me through this competition.
And I reallyfeel like just my overall presence as a model will definitely help me in this competition.
(crowd cheers) I've always wanted to be a model, since Iwas like 6 years old, so being on America's Next Top Model is like a dream come true,seriously.
I'm so happy to be here.
I can't believe I'msitting here talking to you all, and I'm just really, really excited to get this journeystarted.
As far as what I would love to improve, Idefinitely want to learn how to work the camera better.
I feel like as a model, you should be justwilling to always learn new tricks, always learn how to do more and be better, andI want to be just like Tyra Banks.
I want to get in front of any camera and just turnit on.
