Lohan, 19, told Women's Wear Daily that she's just like any other girl her age -- and she isn't afraid of fame.
"I definitely have to prove myself — just showing up on time and doing everything that you're supposed to do," Lohan said.
And she doesn't -- and won't -- bear the stigma her sister has earned from being in the news more for her drug use than for her work. Lindsay checked in to the Betty Ford Center for court-ordered rehab this week. Ali plans to visit her at the end of the month.
"I feel like I'm Aliana, and I'm just trying to work like every other model. I don't want to be put on any platform," she told WWD.
She took some advice from Lindsay, who is still big sister, despite the drama. Ali says that Lindsay told her "the main thing is to do your best and to do what you love."
Ali signed a multiyear contract in August 2011 with NEXT Model Management, according to Entertainment Weekly.
