In a behind the scene interview made by Cosmopolitan Magazine, she shared her life as a model, how she started in the industry, including her challenges she encountered. She mentioned she started modelling around 9 years ago. She did a hair show for one of her friends who used her as a model and that’s when she met the former president of FDAP [Fashion Designers Association of the Philippines] Edgar San Diego.
“But at the time, I was [just about to] graduate from high school…I did school first, and then when I moved to Manila, that’s when I started doing shows regularly. But still, whenever I had school, I would stop. I only do shows or shoots when I have my sem break or summer break.”
Who inspired you to become a model?
When I was younger, I really wanted to do modeling, so I guess it’s kind of a dream [come true]. But since I’ve been in the industry, I look up to people like Joey Mead and Marina Benipayo ’cause…whatever happens they know what to do. Like [if] their dress gets caught in the stage or whatever, it still turns out beautiful.
What’s been your most challenging modeling experience so far?
Everything is challenging for me ’cause when you do modeling, it’s like you’re acting, as well. In your face, you have to show your emotions. They tell you, “I want a happy smile.” Or, they tell you, “I want sexy.” Whenever they tell me [that] I get to the point na parang “Me, do sexy?” It’s kind of a challenge for me ’cause I find it awkward sometimes.
