Adriana, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
My passion in life is to be the best version of myself. Possible. I aspire to be better everyday. I have a huge passion for fashion, art, astrology and all things that are good and genuine in life.
I began to take a modeling interest when I was 7 years old and I would try to perform and sing songs from various artists. I would model my mother's entire closet from sunrise to sunset. I always knew that eventually, I would pursue and follow this fashion fetish!
I joined Boston Casting in 2008 and was able to do work as an extra in the Universal film Mall Cop.
I then began to help local boutiques in oder to model and display their products.

My inspiration in life would have to be those who are genuine and stand up to their true beliefs. Individuals who pursue and maintin their integrity by helping others, are at the top of my list.

We all make mistakes Adriana, we wish we could take back. Please tell us about a time being a Model , you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
I haven't yet experienced such a situation in which, I wish I would have handled differently. I am very cautious and over think just about everything.
Adriana ,when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Model, how do you go about prioritizing your clients’ needs?
As a model, I remain very professional and try to present the work that best suits their projects' needs. I remain attentive and communicate frequently in regards to their requests and expectancies.
Please tell us Adriana, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
There was an instance in which I had to be very strategic in order to meet all my priorities as a model. I had a photoshoot to attend and was carrying several shoes and outfits in my bag. Unfortunately, the bag's strap broke and all my props fell to the ground. I reached out to the shop across and a kind woman helped me to gather my items. I communicated with my client to inform them what was happening. I made it to the shoot on time and my client was very appreciative that I had reached out to inform them of thr situation.
Adriana, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
I was getting ready for a shoot that was going to be held in a cetral park. The photographer was settled on shooting in the park, and I had a better suggestion for the location of the shoot. With proper etiquette, I was able to persuade the photographer into changing his mind about the location. I professionally mentioned the reasons as to why switching to a Cathedral location would benefit both the shoot and the model.
The right tone and etiquette goes long ways.
Adriana please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you just want to share to everyone. What is it and why?
I was honored to join a modeling team back in Boston Massachusetts. I was a part of Boston Casting and got chosen to model in the background for the film, Mall Cop. This was a big accomplishment for myself as I always wanted to experience this type of role within the industry.
Adriana, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
I was given the chance to put together my own outfits for a shoot. I was very excited and looked forward to it, as I knew that I would be able to express my unique fashion style and creative side. This was a fun as well as a bit challenging since I was always used to being directed wjat to wear.
What advice would you give to the people who wants to be successful as a Model?
The advice that I would pass along to anyone aspiring to becoming a successful model is to be yourself. Don't try to change or get intimidated by the camara. Our different personalities and traits make us all unique, so have fun and most importantly, have patience. If you are passionate about modeling, it will show in your work and your turn will come.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?
I would love to collaborate with certain fashion brands such as Macy's, Kohl's, Guess and other like fashion brands.
