Monica Meadows

Subway shooting victim Monica Meadows has been chatting with the media about her ordeal and how it's actually helped her get offers for TV and movies. Meadows, a model and aspiring actress, was on her way to an audition at Glamour when she was shot on a W train near Times Square; now she will be Glamour's Hero of the Month for August. Glamour editor-in-chief Cindi Leive tells the Daily News, "This is a great message of strength and optimism for young women. Everyone's gone on horrible job interviews, but it's never so bad as getting shot on your way there." This is true - Monica Meadows is like the 50 cent of models! Gothamist agrees with your brother, Monica, says you should keep the bullet holes as your "street cred"!

Meadows also spoke out against removing token booths from subway stations, saying that having a clerk at 40th Street and 7th Avenue helped her, since that was the closest exit; the next one would have been at 42nd Street.
