INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Alani Hightower is a face to remember; the Nora Elementary school student has been breaking onto the local modeling scene, even appearing in a handful of commercials.
“In front of the camera, you have to be serious and act out what you're supposed to act out, but behind the scenes you get to hang out,” said Alani on what she likes about modeling.
But modeling isn't the only thing Alani's good at, she's also an up-and-coming swimming star with the Washington Township swim club.
“She's right up there with the upper echelon of her peers in the state,” said Alani’s coach, Michael Christy. “She's very talented. The sky’s the limit.”
And even though she’s only 10, Alani doesn’t ever see herself having to choose between Olympic dreams or walking a runway.
“My goal is to be a supermodel, to do a bunch of commercials and just do it all,” said Alani.
IMPD officials say a 3-year-old boy has died after he was shot in the head Saturday evening.
