"Life is only as good as your mind set!"
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?
Modeling is my passion. It has drawn me since I was a child. When I was in my junior years at a private school in London, I liked to have a glimpse of the big designers and their creations on the fashion channels and shows in Milan and London while I was on lunch break. My classmates were shooting hoops. Now, I'm in my 3rd year of BA in Marketing at The Gulf University of Technology. Although busy with uni assignments, I dedicate my entire free time to professional photo shoots and my clients. I love what I do, and whatever I commit to, I give my 110% to it. I'm a hard worker. Of course when it’s time out, it’s time out. I try to pace myself. I enjoy spending time by the beach. I love to feel the sun and the ocean, hear it's sound... I get energized and full of new ideas. It's an inspiration. I grew up in a diverse family and I always looked on the world as one big opportunity. To be different is a gift from God.
How important is modelling education: Have you attended modelling courses? What related courses or studies have you taken?
Education in general is very important. One should stay awake for it and absorb the knowledge presented to him. Modelling education is part of my profession. If you want to be successful, you should seek professional development and courses in your area (modeling for me) and keep on improving. I strive for knowledge!
What do you think makes someone “fit” to be a model?
One may be fit for model when he/she has the passion for it! It's not only the looks and the body but the charisma of it... It's this vibe that you give to the audience and inspire them to wear the clothes that you are presenting.
What are your goals as a model? How do you see yourself progressing in this field?
I would love to reach out my potential and work with famous and talented designers. I work hard and advertise. I'm open to the fashion world and seek agents who can help me achieve my goals. Thank you for noticing me and I hope to work with you in the future.
What do you know about advertising psychology and photography?
I call it photo psychology. Both are very closely related. The photographer creates this images that play with people's psychology. If a photo is not good enough, it would never grab your attention. While an amazing shot could be remembered for a lifetime. Photography is memories. Memories is the mind ability to store and remember information including those of the created images by the photographer.
How do you communicate with people? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements?
Communication is an important tool in our dailies. I personally use all kind of apps, starting with Instagram, Facebook, emails, Tumblr, whats app and everything that helps me out have the communication flowing. I believe in efficiency and to reach out for this you need to communicate with people. Nothing compares to a beautiful conversation with a beautiful mind... People around find me extremely friendly and a person with good vibes. Someone they could rely on. Someone who can inspire them and help them out in difficult situations. I always smile at strangers :) Modeling is business and as a model I'm flexible with my clients requirements. In the end of the day this is a high end show where one should do his best!
Do you eat nutritiously? How often do you exercise or go to the gym?
Oh yes! I'm so very careful what I eat. I pick organic products and drink Evian and Volvic. Both do magics to your body and mind. I can't live without going to the gym. It's a routine! I spend one to one and a half hours in the gym during the week. I jog on week-ends by the beach. Eat healthy, sleep well, breathe deeply and enjoy life!
What is your dream role as a model?
Literally presenting for D&G. I love everything about them! I like their products and broadcasts. I always wanted to work with someone like them. They are such an inspiration to me.
Do you have any limitations? How do you define your boundaries when choosing to accept a modelling request?
I do not limit myself and don't believe in boundaries. I like to challenge life! I have a say: The world is so much bigger than your brain, stop living inside your head.
State your availability: Would you travel? Work full-time, part time? Any hours?
Travelling for me is an adventure, when combined with working opportunities I feel complete pleasure. I'd like to give to the world my best! I'm available to work full-time and part time upon clients requests.
