LOOK: Mela Habijan receives invite to Coco Rocha’s NY model camp

Miss Trans Global 2020 Mela Habijan couldn't hide her excitement upon receiving the good news from none other than Coco Rocha herself that she was invited to the upcoming Coco Rocha Model Camp in New York.

In a tweet yesterday, July 26, the beauty queen-host posted screenshots of the Queen of Pose‘s messages, as well as the confirmation email, that she made it to the official list of the model camp.

"IT’S ONE THING THAT YOU GET ACCEPTED TO COCO ROCHA MODEL CAMP. BUT IT’S ALSO ANOTHER THING WHEN COCO ROCHA SLIDES INTO YOUR DM!" she exclaimed in a tweet.

Mela then went on to share how she submitted her application to the boutique master class when she stumbled across an ad on IG.

"Last Sunday, I saw an ad for Coco Rocha Model Camp on Instagram. As someone who believes that 'winners always try', I dared to submit an application," she recalled.

"Lo and behold, hours after, I received a DM from Coco Rocha with the words, 'I would love to have you at CRMC…' and 'Excited to work with you one day.'," she continued in a follow-up tweet.

Ecstatic and in disbelief, Mela shared how she's looking forward to being mentored by the supermodel. "To this day, I’m still in awe: I qualified for the four-day camp and she DMed me. And to be mentored by the Queen of Pose is a one-in-a-million opportunity that I wouldn’t miss," she wrote.

While her spot "isn't secured yet", the Miss Trans Global titleholder said she will start processing her visa, save up for the master class, and work her "hardest".

Mela also left a timely reminder to her followers about never giving up on their dreams.

"And to all my fellow big dreamers, let’s keep seizing the day. Because dreams do come true, especially if we try and try again," she wrote with the hashtag #MELAbanTayo.

Founded in 2018, the model camp aims to teach aspiring and professional models everything about the world of modelling, from runway walks to poses.

Based on their official website, available dates for the camp begin on August 27 onwards.
