"Could be fun, I thought; and from that day the passion for modeling grew inside me."
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 never thought of being a model until one day a photographer asked me to take photos of me and I agreed, why not? Could be fun, I thought; and from that day the passion for modeling grew inside me. I love modeling because it allows me to step out the everyday life, when I am in a photoshoot is like nothing else exists and I shine, I fell so special. I show my creative side too since some times I create props to use in future shoots, hair pieces, jewelry, clothes and makeup looks. Who wouldn't want a career doing something they love? :-) I could shoot every single day of my life. Something interesting?...Mhhh, well I love to do Androgynous photoshoots, there is just something sexy about being dressed as a man and portray it. Something inspiring.... I never give up, no matter what, I was born with a medical condition that forbid me from physical activities for a long time in my life and now with proper care I am a fitness enthusiast and being fit has help a lot with my health and my modeling career is incredible the poses I can do now and how good the photos look. I never complain about my condition and never will. Life is beautiful!
How important is modelling education: Have you attended modelling courses? What related courses or studies have you taken?
I have never attended any modeling courses, but I do know and understand that knowledge and practice is very important. I practice alot, expressions in front of the mirror, poses, I have watched and still watch America's Next Top Model and I confess it has help me ALOT!
What do you think makes someone “fit” to be a model?
I think you need a good image, attitude and passion.
What are your goals as a model? How do you see yourself progressing in this field?
Well, everybody wants to be famous and recognized....but honesty I just want to be able to model for as long as I can and be able to express myself thru my photos.
What do you know about advertising psychology and photography?
How do you communicate with people? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements?
I know I don't have much patience, that is something I lack but with the years I have learn to acquire some, lol. I do am friendly and very nice with people and clients. I am very open with requests and genres.
Do you eat nutritiously? How often do you exercise or go to the gym?
As I mention before I am a fitness enthusiast, I have been for 4 years now and I love, love working out. I go to the gym 5 days a week, I go to cardio boxing and bootcamp class everyday and after the class I do weight training. I do eat clean 90% of the time.
What is your dream role as a model?
I would love to do editorial photoshoots, I would love to be in every magazine!
Do you have any limitations? How do you define your boundaries when choosing to accept a modelling request?
Only limitation I have is that I do not do erotic or sexual photoshoots neither exposing genitalia.
State your availability: Would you travel? Work full-time, part time? Any hours?
I am very flexible and available, and it will depend on the assignment.
