"What I enjoy most about modeling is that I can express myself through my photos."
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?
What I enjoy most about modeling is that I can express myself through my photos. I can literally tell a story with my facial expressions and bodily movements. Modeling grants me another outlet to express my feelings and I take full advantage of that and rock out during my photoshoots!
How important is modelling education: Have you attended modelling courses? What related courses or studies have you taken?
I have attended modeling classes. Specifically, during the several times I modeled in Walk Fashion Show. I did a training sessions with Runway Rox.
What do you think makes someone “fit” to be a model?
I don't think there's any one thing that makes someone fit to be a model. You have to be inspired by your own creations and have the drive and self motivation to keep going!
What are your goals as a model? How do you see yourself progressing in this field?
One of my goals as a model is to continue to get my name and face out there and into the minds and eyes of people who don't know me. I will achieve this through traveling and networking. I will also continue to push myself to be better than I was yesterday!
What do you know about advertising psychology and photography?
I know that people remember faces and with that I will continue to strive to get more advertising contracts and push my photos over social media to reach others.
How do you communicate with people? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements?
I'd like to think that I am a great communicator. I am a very open person and I am always open to suggestions and constructive criticism. I try to always find out the requirements ahead of time so that neither I nor the client will be disappointed if it's something I am not comfortable with. I will always speak up if there is something I am not comfortable doing.
Do you eat nutritiously? How often do you exercise or go to the gym?
I am a very healthy eater. I try and stick to fruits and veggies only! I do workout as well. I go to the gym 2-3 times per week.
What is your dream role as a model?
I don't have a specific dream role as a model. I strive to meet new people, get consistent work and most of all be happy and not lose myself in the process.
Do you have any limitations? How do you define your boundaries when choosing to accept a modelling request?
Of course I have limitations. I define my boundaries based off of self respect.
State your availability: Would you travel? Work full-time, part time? Any hours?
I am very open in my schedule. I am most certainly traveling!
What is your most memorable experience so far?
I take bits and pieces from everything I do as far as modeling goes. I love meeting new people and working in different environments. It allows me to step out of my comfort zone a bit but also allows me to pull myself back together and make memorable photo experiences!
