I have an old soul. I love the history of fashion and old classic Hollywood. Audrey Hepburn is my all time favourite. She was a natural beauty with a beautiful soul.
Alexis, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
I want to get my Masters degree in Occupational therapy and work with disabled children. I began to model by accident. A photographer in my area believed in me, and it started from there.
Who is your inspiration in life Alexis? How do you keep inspired?
Audrey Hepburn is my inspiration. I love everything about her.
We all make mistakes Alexis; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Model; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
Well, I could have handled a photographer different. I didn't have a good vibe about him. Sometimes you have to put personal feelings aside and do your job. I wish I would have followed my advice at the time.
Alexis, 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 prioritising your clients’ needs?
I only do what feels right for me. I have never worked with a large number of clients.
Please tell us, Alexis, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
Honestly, my agent works this out for me.
Alexis, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
Well, I wanted to model a 70s editorial, and my photographer wasn't excited about the idea until it was done. It turned out amazing!
Alexis, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
It may not seem like a big deal, but I was published in a photography magazine. It was more for the photographer, but I was so happy for him. It was a big dealðŸ˜Š
Alexis, 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 am also an artist. I was able to do some pictures with my artwork, which I am very proud of.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
Be yourself and keep trying. Never let the word no discourage you. We all have a different look, and somebody is out there looking for yours!
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state what type of collaboration you are looking for?
Brands. I like to do print and commercial ads. Maybe skin and makeup.
