"I believe in the sky being the limit and I can see the stars at night."

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?

I have always wanted to be a model because I love having that independent sort of drive to do what it takes to make a difference. I love art and being able to express a deep meaning with just photo. Fashion has been a big deal since before I was even born and to be a part of it gives me the chills. I, also, feel like models hold this role model persona that gives inspiration to others and I'd love to be someone that is looked up to. I would love to travel places and just be able to give others the sense of "I want that".

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

I am not too sure whether it would be considered a modelling course but, I have went through a program called The Model Experience. This experience has given me the opportunity to have model coaching, photo shoots, and being able to walk in fashion shows. The model coaching consisted of tips that models should know and being able to walk in a fashion show. As far as studies go, I have taken the initiative to research different things about modelling in order to help myself through the process.

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

Confidence. I believe that by believing in yourself, you can actually portray that through your work. Other than that, I would say taking rejection and criticism lightly.

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

I have already accomplished one! My goals are to be able to be in fashion shows, prints, modelling for different brands, and being utilized in the best way possible. I see myself getting to where I am going with the right amount motivation. I was told to never let anyone nor anything hold me back from making my dreams a reality.

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

Communication is very important to me. By being an image for whomever it may be, I feel like I would need to speak effectively and I have been told that I have the "gift of gab". I am patient and able to be worked with because I want the best possible outcome to rise from any situation that may be exposed to.

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

I do my best to eat nutritiously with the means that I have. I exercise daily in order to achieve a better look.

What is your dream role as a model?

My dream role would be to just be utilized by different brands that are able to put in situations where I am able to represent them.

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

I believe in the sky being the limit and I can see the stars at night. I am open to different things and I would not be able to create a boundary until something that I would be very uncomfortable with arises.

Would you like to travel?

I want to model full time and travel places.

What was your favourite experience so far?

My most memorable experience thus far would be when I went to Las Vegas, Nevada to be in a fashion show. It was like the real deal! I stayed in a hotel, I was out there on my own, I participated in a fashion show, and overall, I loved it!
