“I’m in a place where I will be able to provide for my family and really change my life,” Meeks told ABC News from prison. “I never thought that everyone in the world would recognize me for my looks, so I feel extremely blessed and very thankful.”

Meeks is now working with an agent and is planning on modeling once he is released.
