    Anne V's found great success in her modeling work, but The Face coach wanted to mix more than fashion and style as a kid--she wanted to be a chemist!

    "Being a model was my ultimate dream and I never thought it was going to happen," Adam Levine's ex revealed in a Google chat Wednesday promoting The Face. "But I really wanted to be a chemist."

    "I was obsessed," the statuesque blond beauty said. "Both of my parents are doctors. I had the most wonderful chemistry teacher that made me fall in love with chemistry. It was a woman."

    The academic world is tough, indeed, but so is the catwalk. "I have no idea how they pull through it," the 27-year-old fashion industry veteran said of the girls competing on The Face. "Our industry is unpredictable. I think our girls did a great job with it."

    Her advice for other girls wanting to make it in the biz? "You have to bring out your personality," she added. "There are so many models who are beautiful, you have to stand out somehow. You have to be nice, no one wants to work with mean people, you have to be persistent as well."|

    "This is the kind of job where you go up and down," she said. "You have to have that willpower and that passion about our industry."

    It certainly seems that Anne's got that passion! And hey, it's never too late to become a model chemist.
