Music student Enyou (Daniel) Wang was recently interviewed for “5 Questions” from the CWRU Daily.
From the Daily: After Enyou Wang’s first acting class at Case Western Reserve University two years ago, the instructor, theater lecturer Anaya Farrell, pulled him aside. She immediately recognized his innate fashion sense and authentic presence—that inexplicable “it” factor—and asked if he was a model. He wasn’t, but the question set him on the path to become one.
“Lots of models have a story about how they were discovered,” he said. “I wasn’t discovered, but I was encouraged.”
Wang’s instructor referred him to a talent agency, and shortly thereafter, he was signed. Months later, he appeared in a television commercial.
Wang, a senior studying marketing and vocal performance, is now a recognized name on Instagram, where he has 128,000 followers and is considered an “influencer,” an individual with a large social media following that is a paid brand ambassador for various companies.
