Jodi says, “In 2014, Target put out a casting call for models and we responded. They didn’t use her at the time. The beginning of this year I followed up with them and they wanted her to come to another casting call and she did. They called back a few days later and said she’s in a final group and wanted her to come to a shoot. This was in February. We didn’t find out until a couple of days ago that they chose to use her!”
