It is a transition, from modelling to singing, but for me it's a natural progression. The modelling was something I did to travel the world and make some money and end up doing what I want to do. It was a way for me to go gather the experience to write an album and now sing about it.— Erica Packer
The most reckoning Erica Packer quotes that will be huge advantage for your personal development
I'd always thought, 'When I finish modelling, I'm going to pursue this.
' But then it really kind of hit me. I realized, 'Well, no, you can't do it when it's convenient. If I'm going to do it, I've got to do it right now.' (talking about pursuing her career as a singer)
The modelling was fun but I don't see it the same as music, because with modelling, I was just kind of lucky, I just fell into it. I got discovered at a train station when I'd just turned 15, I was working full-time by 16, moved overseas and then just kept at it and made it a life. Whereas with my music, I've really struggled through and worked hard, learnt how to write and I've kept developing that.
Someone once told me: 'Luck is when opportunity meets preparation'.
And that's what I really feel with my music. I've worked really, really hard on it. It was like, 'this is really what I want to do.. what do I have to do to make it work?'
