How long have you been a model and how did you get your start in the industry?
I’ve been modeling for almost 2 years. My career started when I decided to get out of my comfort zone and went to a casting call.
Has your perception of the modeling industry changed over time?
Absolutely. At first, I thought it was an easy job but it is not. Modeling is not all just about posing and looking pretty in front of the camera. A model should know how to project different facial expressions, and tell a story without verbalizing it.
At what point did you realize that you wanted to be a creative person professionally?
When I was in high school, I did a task related to arts and technology, and I enjoyed it. Another one, when I started getting multiple jobs related to content creation and made me decide to be a creative person professionally.
How did you get through hard times in your career?
Sometimes, I collect all the photos of my events and achievements on my phone. And whenever I feel doubtful about my career, I just look at them to realize I have come a long way.
Do you feel like you have a pretty good idea of who you are at this point in your career?
Not fully because I still explore other opportunities not related to modeling, but I am now clear with my boundaries. I know what works for me and what is not.
As a model, can you tell us what are the basic modeling rules everyone must follow to have a beautiful pose?
Know how to project emotions naturally. If they tell you to do fierce, pretend that you see the one who betrayed you. If they want a joyful expression, think about good memories.
Have you ever been camera shy?
Nope, I have been posing in front of the camera since I was young.
What do you do to stay in shape?
Since I also love dancing, I listen to EDM or pop songs and do Zumba.
Name three things on your bucket list?
Bring my parents to Europe, have my own business, and be on the cover of a magazine!
Describe your perfect day off when you are not modeling?
I love going out alone especially during my free time. For me, my perfect day off is exploring food shops and see architectural buildings. I could just listen to music and take pictures of them while walking. It helps me to be more creative and aware of what’s happening around me!
