Arna Karls was discovered by Casting acting agency when she was 14 years old. After attending classes with them she got roles in commercials and as an extra in movies.

At the age of 16 Arna was signed by the modeling agency Eskimo Models. The agency sent her to modeling school and created a portfolio for her. Soon after she started working as a runway model while continuing to act in commercials and TV shows.

At 17 Arna was first published in magazines, at 18 she was asked to compete in Miss Hawaiian Tropic Iceland. The competition was filmed for a six episode TV show. Arna made it to the end of the series and was one of the top 3 models in the competition. The Playboy photographer Ric Moore came to Iceland in 2006 to shoot with the rising glamour models and chosen girls from the Hawaiian Tropic show.

    Hello Arna,
    I am Lin Ronald from New Zealand and I currently live in Cozumel Mexico.
    I believe this will interest you also.
    I have an idea for a video collaboration effort between us and I would like to send you an outline and ask that you consider it. It will benefit both of us as a cross industry promotion. You as a famous model and entertainer turned business woman and I as a simple adventurer who has lived in many many countries and have a wealth of experience to add to your portfolio. In return I hope my journey will inspire other young adventurers. I know your experiences will inspire lots of young girls waning to enter their own online businesses.

    FYI I am a round the world yacht sailor and adventurer and I have never received a paycheck in my life. I have had to create it all from nothing.

    The purpose of this response is so we can refer back to it as evidence of a chance meeting on the internet with todays date on it.
    I think this might be helpful for future students if you accept and agree with my proposal.
    Many thanks,

    Lin Ronald
    Cozumel Mexico.
