I like to be in front of the camera. Rachel, who played the clarinet in her high school band and considered joining the Air Force after graduation, was excited at the idea of modeling, making good money and a chance to get on a plane for the first time ever. I still didn't think anyone would find out, didn't think my parents would find out. But when she landed in Miami, Rachel said she realized she had stepped into a world she never imagined -- one that she said would haunt her forever. Rachel said a year-old agent met her at the airport and took her to a no-frills house with about a dozen other young girls -- most of them were also from small towns, just like her.
