Esther Canadas: early life and entry into modeling
This time, let’s take a trip down to Spain. Esther Canadas is a Spanish supermodel and actress that was born on March 1, 1977 in the city of Albacete.
She originally had plans to pursue a career as a criminologist but her life took an interesting turn when her mother persuaded her to try and enter the modeling field. It makes you wonder where her life would have gone had she chosen to pursue criminology but she decided to become a model. Esther got her first modeling contract with an agency called Take 2 after she won a competition for a magazine that was aimed at a teen audience. She made the decision to go to Barcelona to work on her modeling career after she was sent to South Africa and spent some time over there as well.
