Brains and beauty

Xin Nan, a 23-year-old college student, poses for a photo at a studio in Jiaxing, east China’s Zhejiang province, on March 25. Xin said she began modeling for an online clothes shop after a recommendation from a friend. “I have modeled for the online business for three years and am paid about 1,000 yuan ($149) a day. Although I was not paid this much at the beginning”, she said. Xin is just one of many female students at Jiaxing College who dabble in modeling while studying, despite having no professional training. However, Xin is realistic about her career prospects and is keen to prioritise her academic studies. “Beauty cannot survive the ages,” she said. [Photo/CFP]
