"My dream role as a model would be to walk on a Victoria Secret Fashion Show."
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 catch myself day dreaming most of the day. Most of those day dreams are of me on a runway or posing in front of a camera. This is something I wanted to do since I was a very young girl. Modeling gives me a purpose, another reason to live, and once I lived my dream it will give me a feeling of great satisfaction. I can come out a bit shy at first however, it won't last long. The reason for my shyness I believe is lack of confidence at times. Life has taught me that anything you want you can achieve, All you have to do is believe in yourself and never lose faith. In my hands is my destiny and I will make sure my journey is worth living.
How important is modelling education: Have you attended modelling courses? What related courses or studies have you taken?
As a young girl I did attend several modeling schools. At the end I did learn a thing or two however It was not worth the money my parents had to pay. I felt like I was taken advantage of. Currently one of my agencies offer training which is very helpful and vital to become a successful model.
What do you think makes someone “fit” to be a model?
If it's your passion, If it makes your heart skip a beat and you are willing to do anything to get there then you my friend are fit to be a Model.
What are your goals as a model? How do you see yourself progressing in this field?
My goal is to travel the world as a model and inspire and motivate those around me to believe in themselves. If I can doit anyone can doit. Life is beautiful and an amazing opportunity that was given to us therefore, we have to give it all we got and most importantly live in the now, not the past o the future but in the now.
What do you know about advertising psychology and photography?
I am sort of a new face to the modeling world, On advertisement I don't know much. Well I do know this, Not everything is what it seems like.
How do you communicate with people? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements?
I consider myself to be friendly and aware of others feelings. I've learned to become more patient, That's the only way to go. My main goal is to always keep a client happy.
Do you eat nutritiously? How often do you exercise or go to the gym?
I love food, Food is life lol. My body has always been naturally slim. I do however try to stay healthy and workout at least three times a week and no I don't diet. My secret is eating small portions and several times a day.
What is your dream role as a model?
My dream role as a model would be to walk on a Victoria Secret Fashion Show.
Do you have any limitations? How do you define your boundaries when choosing to accept a modelling request?
My limitations depend on my intuition. Boundaries, Hmmmm I'm pretty easy to work with. As long as I'm treated with respect and feel secure there will not be any boundaries.
State your availability: Would you travel? Work full-time, part time? Any hours?
Traveling has always been one of my most desired goals. If I had to chose I would prefer part time.
What is your most memorable experience so far?
My journey so far has been a bit challenging. For some time I decided to leave my modeling dream aside and settle for regular 9-5 jobs. It made me feel very miserable and unhappy, I figured that was not the life I wanted to live. A challenging journey is a good journey because it teaches us to never give up and it makes the reward much more meaningful. I currently reside in NYC I'm available to work anytime during the week.
