"When I look at my model career, which just begin, I think my proudest professional accomplishment is to have been working with Marco Benedetti who taught me a lot."

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.

What do you do, and what is your passion in life? I am a contemporary and ballet dancer, during all my scholarship I've been studying ballet and modern dance. Im planing to move in London to focus on my dance career and to begin drama courses. Who is your inspiration in life and how do you stay inspired? I love to express myself, when I turned 6years old I had begun violin until my 13years old. I love to learn by experiences and my Final goal is to be a choreographer. I keep inspired by always finding new way to express and interpret. What is your life aspiration? I think everything is an experience, bad or good, there is a reason and something to learn from. We all make mistakes we wish we could take back. Tell me about a time you wish you had handled a situation differently with a colleague. I think the first time I have done nude shooting, I wasn't confident with the photographer. We could have noticed in the result of the pictures. When you're working with a large number of customers it's tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. How do you go about prioritizing your customers needs? As I m working for or with them, it depends if its a work or a colaboration. If its a collaboration I explain mine and listen to the costumers ideas. And if its a service im following their wishes and look if there is more ways to make it better. Tell me about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities. I am hyperactive, from my childhood I'm overbooked and its the only way i dont feel bored. So I changed many times schools and I think by changing from different places and environment helps me to adapt easily. The time i had to be the most strategic was when I had to organize a shooting week in Paris last year. I went to to shoot and apply for agency. Between the meetings, the shootings and presentations I had planned 2 shootings, visited 3 agency ( now in On les aimes Agency ) and have been in 2 meetings all that in 3 days. Give me an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way. As an artist, to bring new thing, if its properly done is always welcome to be shown. I think during improvisation session I've show reason why my colleagues can be inspired by me as the same way i am from them. Tell me about your proudest professional accomplishment. When I look at my model career, which just begin, I think my proudest professional accomplishment is to have been working with Marco Benedetti who taught me a lot.
