Chase Kennedy is an American model renowned for being exceptionally tall. She earned the nicknames “giraffe” and “legs” as a result of her unique height while in school. After school, Chase decided to pursue a career in modeling but didn’t have it all smooth in the beginning as she was turned down by a lot of agencies as a result of her extremely long legs.
Nevertheless, Chase has been able to land a couple of modeling gigs with big brands like Toyota and Alloy Apparel. She has also got a commendable following on Instagram where she posts a lot of her pictures to the delight of her teeming fans. In the paragraphs below, you will learn a lot more about this one-of-a-kind model, what makes her special and how she has been able to grow her career over the years.
Chase Kennedy Bio (Age)
Chase Kennedy was born and raised in San Luis Obispo, California on the 30th day of June 1993 to Matthew Kennedy (father) and Chris Kennedy (mother). Her full name is Chase Maureen Kennedy and she has as her sibling Shane and Devin Kennedy. Chase was born to parents who both stand at above-average height. She was raised alongside her brothers in their San Luis Obispo home.
At the age of 14, Chase had already caught the attention of modeling scouts who approached her with offers to pursue a career in the industry. However, her parents were wary of letting their daughter venture into modeling at a tender age, owing to the multiple cases of corruption and anomalous practices in the industry. Thus, they encouraged her to sit tight and wait until she turned 18. Chase hid to this advice.
Following her graduation from San Luis Obispo High School in 2011 at a time when she was already 18, Chase enrolled at Cuesta College and studied there for one semester before deciding to relocate to Los Angeles. On her arrival in the City of Angeles, Chase Kennedy found it difficult to land modeling gigs in the highly competitive industry. One of the reasons for this was the preference for women who stood at a height of 5 feet 11 or slightly shorter as models. Thus, Chase often resorted to lying about her actual height but she didn’t make headways with this. She related that she would still be taller than girls who wore high heels and agents often told her ‘We don’t know what to do with you.’
Nevertheless, being one who would not be easily discouraged, Chase Kennedy pushed on with her modeling interest elsewhere and recorded mild success in New York City and Europe where physically imposing fashion models were in more demand. She modeled for Alloy Apparel & Accessories which is a fashion retail company that caters for the clothing needs of plus-size and tall women. Chase was also seen in a Spanish-language Toyota commercial where she showed how spacious the car is with her long legs. With this, she has been able to rise above the initial discrimination she faced when she commenced her career.
Going forward, Chase Kennedy does not intend to pursue a full-time career as a model, she instead wants to have it by the side with a career in the hospitality industry. Chase enrolled at California Polytechnic State University, a public university in San Luis Obispo, California for their Recreation, Parks & Tourism Administration program. She revealed that she is a “beer educator” who coordinates beer tours and tasting at Firestone Walker Brewing Co. in Paso Robles, California. Chase intends to delve more into event planning and managing for wineries and breweries.
