Role Model - A Model from the Inside Out

Hailey Mattheisen
Hailey Mattheisen's angelic beauty is sure to captivate anyone's eyes, but it is her inner beauty that has stolen our heart.

Hailey Mattheisen graduated from Barbizon Midwest of Green Bay in May 2012. She loved Barbizon and found it to be such a rewarding experience. According to Hailey's mother, "Hailey would always comment on her growing confidence as she progressed through her training."

Hailey paid her own tuition for Barbizon through her hard work with her own dog sitting service. She was acknowledged during her Barbizon Graduation for her above and beyond attitude. Her Barbizon Midwest instructors honored her with the 'Outstanding Character' award.

The Sweet Dreams Program
Each Christmas, Hailey devotes the entire vacation to a program called "Sweet Dreams" that provides pajama care packages to drug endangered children in the rescue phase. Sweet Dreams care packages consist of a new pillow case stuffed with brand new pajamas and a blanket or cuddly toy for children rescued from dangerous drug environments. Hailey does not ask for Christmas gifts, rather pajama donations for children in need.

Hailey has had to endure a lot of ridicule and teasing for always having a positive mood, but she remains true to herself and her love for life. Hailey has won multiple awards for her amazing character and leadership qualities. Hailey has recently been nominated for a very pretigous award through the state of Wisconsin, 'The Outstanding Teen Character Award 2013,' for outstanding character, integrity, and community service. Her polite, kind, and always positive personality certainly has caught the attention of many. 

Hailey Mattheisen
Hailey feels that Barbizon was the introduction of many new friendships with others who share the same interest in acting/modeling. Hailey gained confidence, professional skills, and friendships thanks to Barbizon.

Hailey has been in two commercials, many fashion shows with Model You Brand, and auditioned for a leading Disney role since graduating Barbizon! Hailey hopes to attend college for Fashion Merchandising/Marketing while still pursuing modeling/acting. WOW, busy girl!

Hailey's advice to all Barbizon students (and everyone for that matter) is to NEVER, EVER give up on your dreams; her motto in life is "Shoot for the moon, even if you miss you will land among the stars."

True role models are those who possess the qualities that we would like to have and those who have affected us in a way that makes us want to be better people. Hailey's heart is bigger than life and she is a shining example of inner beauty! Thank you, Hailey, for being a true role model, not only to us, but to everyone around you. We look forward to seeing you among the stars!
