I also do some photograpVictoria Mautonehy myself; I love taking photos of nature. I’ve also been employed since I was 14 years old & have fantastic work experience, work ethic, and maturity for my age.

Nicolena, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model.
Nicolena, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or challenging about it?
When I travel, I always take my camera. No matter where I am if there’s a sunset I’m still able to capture it in so many different sceneries, it still looks stunning, too. Trying to make it look good in some landscapes like cities compared to country road or forests.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?*
Never give up.
