"My goal as a model is to be globally recognised not just for posing for magazine's ect but to be a strong minded world changer and a role model."
Model Citizen App is the platform where we recognise fashion models, photographers, designers, makeup artists, hair stylists, creative directors, bloggers, stylists, and labels around the world. Every day, we feature an individual on Model Citizen Interviews. People get to know each of them - their hopes, challenges, aspirations and inspirations in life.
Tell us about yourself: Why do you want to work as a model? Why are you interested in modelling as a career?
Hi my name is Tanika Platt, Modelling is my dream job and when I am in front of the camera I feel like 'I am on top of the world' (don't know a better way to describe it heheh). Modelling also allows me for the chance to be a role model and example to others. Representing that dreams really do dome true and to never give up, no matter how small or big your dreams may be.
How important is modelling education: Have you attended modelling courses? What related courses or studies have you taken?
Yes, I have taken a modelling course last year which consisted of attending a three month course at Tanya Powell Modelling Agency where I successfully completed my diploma.
What do you think makes someone “fit” to be a model?
Being a 'Fit' model to me means that you have to be emotionally, mentally and physically fit where you feel that 'you're' in the best shape and not society's 'definition' of being fit.
What are your goals as a model? How do you see yourself progressing in this field?
My goal as a model is to be globally recognised not just for posing for magazine's ect but to be a strong minded world changer and a role model. I hope to one day become Miss Australia and pursue to become Mrs World.
How do you communicate with people? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements?
I communicate with people via social media when it comes to promotions ect. I am patient and like to make sure I am making the best decisions that are going to best represent my image. I do this my always using my manners and considering other people's opinions.
Do you eat nutritiously? How often do you exercise or go to the gym?
Yes I am super interested in eating healthy and always consider my calories but I like to keep a balance diet. The gym is my favourite place as a 'stress releaser' and makes me 'feel good.' I go to the gym about 2-4 times a week and always try to fit this into my schedule.
What is your dream role as a model?
Working with and representing high fashion magazines/labels, doing motivational talks and inspiring others, opening and owning my own fashion line.
Do you have any limitations? How do you define your boundaries when choosing to accept a modelling request?
Taking in considering my age and being a role model I tend to avoid lingerie photoshoots that expose to much skin but this does not mean this is completely out of the picture because I still keep an open mind to different opportunities.
State your availability: Would you travel? Work full-time, part time? Any hours?
Yes I am a jet-setter and love travelling. I am always in the air every year as my dad works for Qantas so I am introduced to new cultures all the time. I currently do not have a job but I am in university studying full-time.
What is your most memorable experience?
I am a family person so holidays with the family are always the most memorable. But if I had to choose it would have to be going on a cruise with 21 family members for four days!
