Nadya was just 13 when she was discovered by a model scout in her native Siberia. She signed a contract, was sent to work the runways in Japan, and ultimately returned to her poor hometown in debt–she spoke no English and no one told her that her living costs would be deducted from her salary. Her story, which is not unlike thousands of other young girls who are caught up in the global modeling machine, is at the center of a new documentary called “Girl Model,” which aims to expose the truth about underage modeling.
