On getting to America, she quit school and began modeling as a full-time profession. She began posing for local advertisements and some campaigns in marketing. Nydia Bertran was very successful at modeling for some years and along the way, she came to discover her passion for photography.

Stone confessed the truth a decade later with the “The New Yorker” publishing an article titled “The Dirty Trickster.” Stone confessed that everything was real and that he had to deny then because his grandparents were still alive.
