"Professionalism is the key : I'm open-minded to almost any kind of client' requirements and I always take to time to listen to their request."
Model Citizen Media provides a platform to 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?
If I have confidence in myself today, it's because of modelling. It is so empowering, so fascinating to see yourself through the eyes of photographers. This is what got me started and this is still what motivated me to make modelling a career for myself.
How important is modelling education: Have you attended modelling courses? What related courses or studies have you taken?
I got hooked on modelling when I started graphic design in high school : I wanted to work behind the camera at first. I learn a lot about photoshop, post-treatment and magazine work. In the end it's during a photography course that I got hooked. I think it's important to try stuff and explore many possibilities. This is how you know exactly who you are and what you like.
What do you think makes someone “fit” to be a model?
Confidence and being open-minded. In this field you never know what you might end up doing!
What are your goals as a model? How do you see yourself progressing in this field?
I've always been more interested in promotional and artistic work. Of course I love fashion too but it has never been what interested me the most. I love people and I love creating things so I would be seeing myself in either of those 2 categories.
What do you know about advertising psychology and photography?
A lot of marketing stuff ahah! I know that photography is one of the biggest visual medium for advertisement, promotion and well, almost anything get way more attention when there is a visual on it.
How do you communicate with people? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements?
I'm really bubbly and friendly by nature so I don't have difficulty communicating with people. Professionalism is the key : I'm open-minded to almost any kind of client' requirements and I always take to time to listen to their request. Everybody as different want and need so it's important to make sure everything is clear and set up before going any further in working with any client.
Do you eat nutritiously? How often do you exercise or go to the gym?
I exercise 4 times per week and I eat (at least) 1200 of good calories a day. I'm following an intermittent fasting diet so it's really important that I eat accordingly to it.
What is your dream role as a model?
Any model who's in the fitness industry. They push myself to became better, stronger and to work my ass off. And yes, I would love one day to be one of them and help others to the same!
Do you have any limitations? How do you define your boundaries when choosing to accept a modelling request?
Since I do nude photography, I do have some boundaries concerning this category. If it's to much or i don't like the vehicle message by the photos, i may simply negotiate or respectfully refuse. I think it's important to respect ourself too and not to do stuff that we don't want to be affiliate to.
State your availability: Would you travel? Work full-time, part time? Any hours?
In my everyday life, I work as a nurse in an agency so it super easy for me to decide my schedule and be a part-time model. i would definitely travel too if needed. Let's explore the world!
