Alexander Beck Goes From Frying Fish To Modeling

We love to hear Cinderella stories like this one!

Alexander Beck is now an in demand model, but not too long ago he was working at a fish and chip shop making less than $10 an hour.

The 17 year old was randomly discovered by model scout Cesar Perin while walking out of a Cambridge bookstore in December.

Alexander said of the day that changed his life:

"That day in Cambridge I was about to walk out of the bookshop when Cesar shouted "stop I love your face" and came up to me. Cesar said he had never scouted anyone like that before. He was so nice and approachable - he made me feel instantly at ease."

After that, Beck quit his job and was off to Milan for fashion week where he booked Prada exclusively, Gucci and Christian Dior.

Wow.
