I am a model who has overcome obstacles regarding my height. I am 6’3 and have been working since 14 as a model but since I kept growing problems started to arise.
Our readers would love to get to know you more Alora. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?
I am a super hard worker. I have been acting since the age of 6 and modeling since the age of 14. I am true to my brand and stick up for myself. I know my limits and know how my angles in front of the camera.
Alora, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
I started as a model after I started my acting career. Once I got into the acting scene at age 6, I started to love the modeling side of the industry. Since I was y’all and knew my brand already, I had a blast working with photographers.
Who is your inspiration in life Alora? How do you keep inspired?
My inspiration in life is the sun. I know that sounds cheesy, but it’s true! The sun makes people happy, it rises every morning and sets every evening, even if something terrible happened on a day the sun will rise again the next day and remind us its a new start. That’s what I want to do. I want to warm people with my heart and my smile and my personality just like the sun does. I want to encourage and inspire just like the sun.
We all make mistakes Alora; 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.
There was a time when I was starting out when I was asked to model something that went against my brand and my morals. I was under a lot of pressure, and I said yes I would. When I came down to the shoot date I old the photographer that I lied and that I would’ve modeled that for him. He wasn’t happy with me because the whole crew was there ready to shoot. I apologized, and I haven’t worked with him since. I know now to stick up for myself from the beginning.
Alora, 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?
I work with the photographer who contacts me or my reps first, and then we work down the line. Sometimes I have several shoots in one day.
Alora, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
There was a shoot I got to be apart of where the photographer didn’t have a mood board, and he said to do whatever! Witch is a models dream. And I grabbed my hair and roughed it all around my face, and we got this amazing shot! Everyone was impressed! I was so happy.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?*
Be patient; it doesn’t happen overnight. Work hard! Grind every day! Be polite, humble and love yourself! You can’t get anywhere if you don’t love yourself. Be true to your morals and your brand!
