I think what makes me unique is my personality and my appearance. With me being 25, I'm learning to live a little more freely and try new things. I have a body full of colorful, bold tattoos (thanks to @krystals_tatted) which sets me apart from others. I can go from the innocent boy next door to the crazy rebel in a matter of seconds LOL.
Albert, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as Model?
I am SO passionate about modeling. I've never wanted anything this much like I do modeling. I've always known early on that I wanted to model, but it took a long while for me to give myself that push to get started. Insecurities and self-doubt had a lot to do with that until one day I said to myself _„ñWhy not start today?_.„ And here I am!
Who is your inspiration in life, Albert? How do you stay inspired as a Model?
I admire so many people! But I take a lot of inspiration from the ASOS models. They're all so unique and creative in they're own personal lives and I love that!
We all make mistakes, Albert; we wish we could take back. What was the mistake you made in the past that you wish you can take back?
A mistake I wish I could take back would honestly have to be delaying my growth by not starting this dream as early as I should have. So much wasted time where I could've been learning so much and could have progressed so much further than I have now.
Albert, How do you describe yourself in terms of working with clients?
I believe I work GREAT with other creatives. I take direction very well, and it's fun working with people who might do things differently than I would normally default to.
Please tell us, Albert, how do you prioritize work, social life, friends, and family?
Without my family, I would not have been able to overcome most of the obstacles I came face to face with, and the friends that I have are also like family. I would place work a bit social media, even though social media is becoming an important part of how us beginner models are getting our start.
Albert, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
I believe in order to get someone to see things your way; you must first do the same for them. Then you have to embellish your reasoning to make your idea sound like the better, more logical plan to go with LOL!
Albert, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model.
So recently, I am walking in a fashion for the first time, and it was so amazing! The show was for JB's Thrifted Styles in Dallas, Texas. I'm so thankful for that opportunity because it's something I never thought I'd ever been able to do, with me being only 5'9_„. The energy was so great, and I enjoyed being around other creatives and like-minded individuals!
Albert, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
One of the shoots I'd done, I styled myself. I was so nervous because instead of going to a store, I ordered the clothing and almost nothing fit! I decided to go with a red kilt and black harness, and it was so interesting because it wasn't my normal style, nor was it anything I was used to seeing where I lived.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
Win me still being in the beginning stages; my best advice would be to go for it. You won't learn anything until you're doing it. Don't be afraid to network or ask for help either. And remember that YOU are your worst critic. If you exude positive vibes, positive things will happen.
