"My dream role is to be an example of happiness."

At Model Citizen App, we like to hear from both amateur, and experienced models. Dawn is a great example of the latter, having packed up her life and moved to New York to pursue her dream. Dawn is very active on Instagram, and showcases her travels as a result of modelling. We recommend you check her out!

Tell us something interesting about you, something inspiring. Don't be shy. :)

When I was born, lightning struck the biggest tree in the front yard.

How important is modelling education: Have you attended modelling courses? What related courses or studies have you taken?

Well I'm from a small town in Missouri, I got scouted and moved everything I had to New York. Life is beautiful and I wasn't going to let fears get in my way. Everyone tried to stop me from going, or give me advice about modeling. They never understood the industry or even what "modeling" was. But regardless I left and my career bloomed.

What do you think makes someone “fit” to be a model?

Height is everything. My dad is six foot six, so I got long legs from him. As I've been in the modeling industry I have seen girls of all sizes and shape try to fit in, or get signed to agencies, but can't seem to make it. Being tall not only makes you stand out on the runway but it makes you stand out from the average women or man.

What are your goals as a model? How do you see yourself progressing in this field?

To do my very best, as me. Never let the industry change who I am. I can only do the best I know how, and as I continue to make relationships in the modeling industry it seems like my work continues to expand.

What do you know about the advertisement industry, advertising psychology and photography?

I started studying Photography as I finished school, it's what got me into modeling. Everyone always told me I should be in front of the camera not behind it.

How do you communicate with people? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements?

I try to listen more then I talk. I am very laid back, I try to be myself on set and enjoy every moment. My clients seem to always want change, and I'm very open to that, I just always stay try to who I am.

Do you eat nutritiously? How often do you exercise or go to the gym?

I do hot yoga like I drink coffee, I never knew how much water weight I was holding on to until I started yoga. I love fruits, it's better than candy. I am always blending something and inventing a new smoothie.

What is your dream role as a model?

My dream role is to be an example of happiness. I never want people to look at me and think I'm not enjoying life, I always want to inspire people but none the less to let people know how beautiful life is.

Do you have any limitations? How do you define your boundaries when choosing to accept a modelling request?

I don't have limitations, if I did I wouldn't be this successful.

State your availability: Would you travel? Work full-time, part time? Any hours?

I want to travel more, and make modeling a full time job. One of my favorite women I look up too is GIGI Gorgeous, she loves her life with joy and explores the world. For a living.
