Here's what Aria said about IMTA in an interview :
What was IMTA like for you?
It was an AMAZING experience for me. I would not even be close to living my dream if it wasn’t for IMTA. I went to IMTA, New York City 2013, where I won a Talent of the Year award, received a $10,000 scholarship to the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts, and placed in the top ten for Sitcom, TV Beauty, TV Real People, and Screen Test. I also signed with Bellissima Model Management in NY and that is how I got to model in Thailand. I would be lying if I said IMTA wasn’t overwhelming, but it really opened my eyes and helped me grasp a better understanding of the industry and how it works.
