Back on 25th July 2018, Boron posted a 16-minute-long video titled ‘Why Being A Model Sucks’ on her self-titled YouTube channel talking about her personal experience in the modeling industry.

From start to finish, Annika talks about how she went from being a healthy teenager to an underweight teenage model, the weight loss journey, and more. She openly mentions that the modeling industry is in no way as glamorous as we portray it to be.

Through the video, 5 feet 9 inches tall model expresses her hate towards the way you are casually asked around to maintain an unhealthy weight, having to ask someone to do any minor change regarding your own body, and so on.

Having a naturally small body frame, Annika was told that her measurements are not there or she was overweight.

Annika Went To Be Hungry During Her Modeling Days

Two months after her YouTube video hit the internet, Daily Mail also published an article regarding her and her struggles back in the day.

According to the post, Boron started eating hardly 1200-1300 calories per day in order to fit within the assigned category. Well let us remind you, on average, one should intake at least 2000-3000 calories per day.

As per Annika herself, during her scouting days, she ate an apple, peanut butter, and a cup of tea for breakfast, during lunch she ate carrots, hummus, almonds, and zucchini pasta. Likewise, for dinner, she ate tofu with baked veggies.

In the video, she also said, “I was not eating a lot. I was constantly hungry. I would go to bed so hungry my stomach would hurt.”

Eventually, Annika signed with an agency and she began modeling in Toronto. While modeling, she weighed around 109 pounds and was the skinniest self she had ever been.

Likewise, when she went to Milan at the age of 17 for an international project and the second she reached the agency, they measured her and said,

‘Wow, you’re a lot bigger here.’

This kind of series of events eventually led Boron to quit her journey to become an agent-based model. She is now working as an Instagram model and is earning a decent amount.
