School girl and Talent Management child model, Tamzeng King, has given parents of children who struggle with shyness, anxiety and communication difficulties food for thought by taking up child modelling, and overcoming many of the symptoms related to a difficult condition known as ‘Selective Mutism’ as a result.
Shyness, anxiety and communication difficulties affect many children and can have a dramatic impact on their school work and general well being. Recent studies reveal that Selective Mutism is now twice as common as Autism and the numbers of sufferers are growing at an alarming rate, so finding ways to build confidence in victims of this cruel condition can be extremely positive and beneficial.
Just months ago Tamzeng found some social situations, including school, so anxiety provoking that she was unable to speak or make friendships. Miraculously this has turned around since Tamzeng began to work with child model agencies, and the future looks bright for this promising young star in the making.
The 12 year old’s mother told us: “I feel that modelling has given Tamzeng confidence and helped her overcome her problems. In the past 12 months her confidence excelled and through this she now has so many friends and is out playing all the time, she doesn’t talk much about her modelling to her friends, but she talks and talks!
“I spoke to a neighbour last week who read her story last month in the paper and they could not believe what she is doing. Only 12 months ago she could not talk to her. She is a different girl now, It’s fantastic. We’re so proud of her. It’s amazing – child modelling has given Tamzeng a new lease of life.”
The team at Talent Management are delighted to hear of Tamzeng’s success in her battle with selective mutism after becoming a model and have high hopes for her modelling career.
If your child has been affected by issues that impact on their confidence modelling may just help them to overcome their difficulties. To find out more about child modelling opportunities please read our information on modelling for kids.
