Our Vision

Imagen Modeling by La Gatita was created through the vision of renowned broadcaster and radio personality Betzy Vazquez, better known as “La Gatita”. Betzy became involved in the modeling scene when her youngest daughter Susanlee Forty-Vazquez’s desire to enter the world of fashion. Throughout the trials and tribulations and then the success of Susanlee, Betzy quickly realized that she shared the same passion as her daughter and wanted to be able to help other young adults grow in the industry. Betzy decided to share her dream with her friend and founder of Imagen Magazines, Angela Calderon and together they put this vision together. Imagen Modeling aims to provide a comprehensive learning academy for their students, so they can develop both professionally and socially. Being a model is more than knowing how to model a dress on a catwalk, so it is important to emphasize the values and self-esteem of our students.
