"I'm still in the learning process. I'm not afraid to ask questions if I am unclear about the industry."
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 love being in front of the camera. Since I was a little girl, I always had a love for modelling. Being from a very small town in the states, I didn't think it was ever an option. But getting married and having children has given me a whole new type of confidence and I know I can do anything I set my mind to! I've traveled all over the world and England has always felt like home to me. Since my first trip when I was 21, England has welcomed me with open arms!
How important is modelling education: Have you attended modelling courses? What related courses or studies have you taken?
Yes I do think education is important, however, it has to be a natural process that you either have or you don't.
What do you think makes someone “fit” to be a model?
I don't believe there is a 'fit' type for modelling. I believe it's confidence in front of the camera. Models should be in every size, age, gender and color.
What are your goals as a model? How do you see yourself progressing in this field?
Ultimately I would love to be the face of a company. That is the goal-so I'll gladly start off small and learn as much as I can to take the right steps to make my dreams come true!
Do you have any knowledge of the advertising industry?
I'm still in the learning process. I'm not afraid to ask questions if I am unclear about the industry.
How do you communicate with people? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements?
I ask many questions and try to take in my surroundings as much as possible. I am a very patient person, traveling at a young age, you become aware of friendliness and patience and how important it is around the world!
Do you eat nutritiously? How often do you exercise or go to the gym?
I do eat as well as I can, but I am also human. I believe in giving in to yourself in moderation and respecting you body to know when it's time for a 'clean up'. I love to do boot camps 2-3 times a week as well as Pilates. I also love to walk. I walk at least 2 miles a day if not 3.
What is your dream role as a model?
As I said before I would love to be the face of a company and to help guide others who didn't know it was possible to follow a dream!
Do you have any limitations? How do you define your boundaries when choosing to accept a modelling request?
I have limitations when I feel they are needed. I believe you get a feeling when things aren't as they should or when you could possibly go further than you would with other photographers.
State your availability: Would you travel? Work full-time, part time? Any hours?
Yes I would travel and I would love to work as much as possible.
