"I am naturally shy and awkward but when I'm walking down the runway or posing for a photo shoot I have so much confidence..."
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 to model. I am naturally shy and awkward but when I'm walking down the runway or posing for a photo shoot I have so much confidence and I love feeling confident and being comfortable in my skin.
How important is modelling education: Have you attended modelling courses? What related courses or studies have you taken?
I have taken modeling classes at Barbizon.
What do you think makes someone “fit” to be a model?
I think what makes someone fit to be a model is not just running off of good looks but is hard working and dedicated and practices their craft to learn how to work their body and be a true professional.
What are your goals as a model? How do you see yourself progressing in this field?
My goals as a model are to be able to make a career out of modeling and get to a point in my life where I can help other young aspiring models. I see myself progressing tremendously in this field if I just continue to stay hard working and dedicated and keep practicing and networking to get my name and face out in the world.
What do you know about advertising psychology and photography?
I do not know much about advertising, however, I know social media plays a huge role in advertising because essentially I am trying to advertise myself everywhere on social media.
How do you communicate with people? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements?
I communicate with people via phone calls, texts, and emails. I am a very patient person and very friendly. I am also an open person and any client requirement that is presented to me I will do my best to meet them.
Do you eat nutritiously? How often do you exercise or go to the gym?
Yes I eat nutritiously. I love eating salads and I try to eat some sort of fruit daily. I workout about twice a week.
What is your dream role as a model?
My dream role as a model is to put out a positive image of myself and inspire other girls who look like me to show them that anything is possible if you work for what you want.
Do you have any limitations? How do you define your boundaries when choosing to accept a modelling request?
I don't have any limitations really. I am open to just about anything so if I see a modeling request that I might be hesitant about at first, I won't shut it down completely because I am to try anything.
State your availability: Would you travel? Work full-time, part time? Any hours?
I would travel because I love to travel. I work part time and I also go to school part time as well.
