"Looks alone won't take you anywhere if you don't have the right mindset."
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 have been modeling since childhood so it's natural for me to be in front of the camera. Modeling allows me to communicate through my photos. It allows emotions to come through and reach the viewers. Modeling can inspire others through photographic work. It allows me to portray a different character. A bit like acting.
How important is modelling education: Have you attended modelling courses? What related courses or studies have you taken?
I've taken modeling courses while living in the States. However, it was just curiosity. I find the courses to be unnecessary.
What do you think makes someone “fit” to be a model?
Willingness to succeed, a professional and positive outlook, hard work and never take no for an answer. Looks alone won't take you anywhere if you don't have the right mindset.
What are your goals as a model? How do you see yourself progressing in this field?
Continuing to push myself further and doing projects that inspire me and that are fulfilling.
What do you know about advertising psychology and photography?
Being professional and respectful are a few of the many things in order to be hired again among companies and photographers. And properly marketing your image on social medias as well.
How do you communicate with people? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements?
I believe I'm great at communicating which is also very important in this business. I'm very patient with clients and friendly. And willing to work hard to achieve the best results possible.
Do you eat nutritiously? How often do you exercise or go to the gym?
I eat a balanced diet, mainly choosing healthy food options. I'm not a junk food junkie. I exercise a few times weekly.
What is your dream role as a model?
I don't have a specific dream role as a model. My focus is to better myself and keep moving forward.
Do you have any limitations? How do you define your boundaries when choosing to accept a modelling request?
I do have limitations based on if the assignment is interesting or if it does improve my modeling career.
State your availability: Would you travel? Work full-time, part time? Any hours?
I'm willing to travel depending on the type of assignment.
