BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Governor Livingston High School student, Kelly Floyd, was recently cast in "Macy’s One Day Sale” television ad campaign this holiday season.
Floyd, a sophomore, has been modeling for the last two years. She has been in ad campaigns for Aeropostale,Target and Lands End. She has also walked in the runway show of designer Bonnie Young.
After an initial audition where she met with the casting directors for Macy’s, and a nerve wracking week of waiting, Floyd actually got the call from her agent while in the lunchroom at Governor Livingston High School, “He forgot that I was in school, which was kind of funny.”

The filming, which took place in Brooklyn, took three days to shoot. Floyd, 15, took the train into New York City with her mom, Nancy. They would then shuttle over to Brooklyn each day for filming. The experience was one of a kind for Floyd, ”I was fascinated to see how they filmed it and put it all together, I felt very lucky to be there.”

Floyd keeps up with her studies even when she is working. “I always finish my homework either in the car heading to the city or when I get home,” said Floyd. “I have definitely learned how to manage my time better,” she added.
Floyd said her family heads into NYC each year to see the tree at Rockefeller Center, but the first stop is always Herald Square, “Never in a million years did I think I would be working for them.” She is looking forward to 2016 with much excitement and optimism.
