If modeling is something you are truly passionate about, you should definitely go for it! Don't ever let somebody tell you that you can't fo something.
If you try it and realize it isn't right for you, there are other positions related to the fashion industry that you could totally do. You can work as a pattern maker and deal with the technical side of clothing production, be a product designer, work in marketing and the business side of things, and so much more!
When I was in middle school and high-school, I worked at the headquarters of a fashion company nearby as a "fit-model". Basically, my job was to try on new products and test them out for comfort and fit, and then communicate with everyone working behind the scenes to help develop the best possible product! It was so much fun, and it didn't have the same pressure that might come along with runway walking or photoshoots.
Whatever path you decide on - you got this!

Hope you are doing great!
Yes! Modeling is a career! We are very lucky to have been born in a world with so many career options to pursue!
I think you should follow your dreams and be happy!
Nowadays there are so many ways you can start modeling. You could take some pictures at home, create scenarios and post the pictures on social media :) I believe that modeling is art, so be creative! Have fun doing it!
Also, there is no such thing as being pretty or not! There are only things called beauty standards and those even change from time to time. Everyone is beautiful! You are beautiful in your own way! Don't let anyone tell you the contrary, ok?
Best Regards :)
