I think the combination of me being both a Young beautiful model but also love to get into character and not be afraid of showing _„ugly_„ and funny faces. Right now I go through the characters from the Swedish writer Astrid Lindgren, such as Pippi Longstocking, Emil and many more and those videos have been very popular, and followers are asking for more. I Also love dancing and post a lot of dance videos on musically and Instagram. So, the combination of me is what I believe makes me unique.
Alicia, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Young Model?
My biggest passion is dance! And I dance almost all the time because it makes me very happy. I started as a model when an agent contacted my mom and asked if I wanted to come to the studio and talk and some pics.
Who is your inspiration in life, Alicia? How do you stay inspired as a Young Model?
My mom is a big inspiration, and so is my dad. They both are very creative and inspire me to be a better artist, But most importantly, they inspire me to be a nice and humble person with good morals and to stay down to earth.
We all make mistakes, Alicia; we wish we could take back. What was the mistake you made in the past that you wish you can take back?
Can't think of any right now.
Alicia, How do you describe yourself in terms of working with clients?
I'm always nice, polite and I get to hear that I'm easy to work with. I follow directions well and often have a smile on my face. I' m also sustained when it comes to working.
Please tell us, Alicia, how do you prioritize work, social life, friends, and family?
I always put my family first, and we do a lot of things together. And they mean the world to me. I also prioritize school. It is a music class, so we do also have plenty of concerts. On my spare time, I mostly practice or compete/perform a dance, practice gymnastics or spend time with my friends. I also do model jobs once in a while, which I enjoy!
Alicia, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
When I was doing a runway show, I persuaded a client to say yes to me doing some dance moves and a high disco dance kick on the catwalk. I thought it would be fun since I was wearing sports clothes from Adidas. At first, she was skeptical, but then I showed her backstage, and she was thrilled, and the audience very appreciated it. :)
Alicia, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Young Model.
When I sat for almost 3 hours on a stage while the great oil painter Vladimir Vologov pained me live with a big audience watching and plenty fotografers below the stage. That was a big moment for me.
Alicia, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
Once I asked a photographer to take some dance photos of me because I wanted to have professional dance pics. So after she took the shots, she needed me for she agreed to take a few extra shots for me. She said she did that because I had good idÍ©as that she believed in. So I was the one who came up with the dance poses and did my clothes and hair. I 'm so proud of those pictures (you find them attached)!
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Young Model?
Be active on social media, stay true to, and only do it if it makes you happy!
