One Model Oregon, a local competition that helps aspiring models ages 14-28 to navigate the tough world of professional modeling, has opened its second round of voting!
The contestants participate in photo shoots with local photographers to help build their portfolios and jumpstart their modeling careers. Kind of like Bend's own version of "America's Next Top Model," except YOU get to vote for the winner!
Vote for your favorite models here! You can vote once every 24-hours.
The Source will be posting Q&As with each model along with exclusive photos and updates on the competition. Today's featured model is 18-year-old Ashlly von Hurst.
If you were on a deserted island, what book would you want with you?
My original Oxford first edition of poetry.
Favorite actor and actress?
Hugh Jackman and Helena Bonham Carter
Who is the most influential person in your life?
My father, he is a grand man and has lived his life helping others; and continues to do so by always putting his family first.
Secret wish or dream?
A dream of mine, that I have had since I can remember, is to become a well-known international model. My godmother was an amazing beautiful woman who modeled in San Francisco. She put it in my mind that I could model and would encourage me every moment she got.
Something interesting about your family?
I am half Mexican and half Scottish. Though on my Scottish side, we belong to the family name Glover in the Drummond Clan. In Scotland there is a castle dedicated to my Glover family. It has been turned into a museum over the years, and at the very end of the castle is a book with the signatures of all my distant family. Hopefully mind will be there soon as well.
