Tell us your story, how did you got started modelling and where is your home at the moment?
My name is Julie Wuis; I am 30 years old and live for the art of aesthetics in the medical industry. I have always been fascinated with facial dimensions, and proportions, and captivated by the evolving beauty of human beings. I became obsessed with fashion, clothes, and design as a young girl. This enthusiasm has led me to a successful career as a cosmetic nurse injector based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Being a healthcare provider in the beauty industry has opened doors for me to model in numerous medical aesthetic magazines internationally. In hindsight, this passion fueled my desire to dedicate my life to a profession that would allow men and women to present their best selves to the world.
Tell us more about yourself. What else do you do next to modelling?’
I currently own a business in medical aesthetics called “The Queen of Face”. I am also in graduate school to become a Family Nurse Practitioner. Outside of aesthetics, I work in the emergency room as a registered nurse. I live a very active lifestyle encompassing every sport you can imagine. My favourite activities are cycling, boxing, dancing, swimming, weightlifting, and running. I am also working on my creative side outside of physical activities by learning the violin.
What do you love most about being a model? And, what do you least enjoy?
Working with incredible photographers, such as Mr. H, who demonstrate visionary ideas, inspires my work outside of the photoshoot set. Jumping into new creative territory makes it fun to collaborate with photographers and think outside of the box. Stepping into a different character onset is a transformative process that every woman should experience in their lifetime.
What is the most challenging being a model?
With many other responsibilities, preparation for a photo shoot is the most challenging part of being a model because it is not a role I partake in full-time.
How do you feel the modelling world is changing?
I believe the modelling world is ever-changing to the benefit of society. It has advanced in the fashion industry from conservative photography to recently a full expression of human art. The diversity and creativity of the fashion industry will always keep current with the trends of the world.
What keeps you excited about life in general?
Growing and learning as a person in business and life is the key to my excitement and success. Knowing that life is intentional, setting new goals and aspirations each year drives me to unlock limitless potential. I believe anything is possible with perseverance and strategy.
What kind of life would you like to have?
I want to live a profound life full of experience and adventure. My goal on this earth is to positively impact every person I meet, whether a stranger or a friend. As the great saying by Maya Angelou goes, “…people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
What are the achievements you are proud of most of today?
This question is heavy, as I would define myself as an over-achiever. However, if I had to pick one, it would be my recent acceptance into nurse practitioner graduate school. It was the most challenging application process to endure but well worth the hard work.
