Who is your inspiration in life Belle? How do you keep inspired?
Ka'Cher Bell is my biggest inspiration, and she's created such fire for being unique with my energy and creative gifts.
We all make mistakes Belle, 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.
I haven't experienced any conflict with any artist over the years.
Belle , 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 place myself in Manager mood while conducting myself as a Professional model. Applying CEO tactics to your everyday life is just as essential to developing balance and compassion towards each client needs to be met.
Please tell us, Belle, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
I was strategic by being prepared ahead of time, researching in the requirements of the models, preparing an extra production bag, reaching out to the coordinators or modeling instructor for answers, attending any meetings for the production team and rehearsals.
Belle, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
Persuasion is not easily accepted by your peers. Instead of using persuasion I apply understanding, compassion and the ability to genuine in resolving the issue at hand.
Belle 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 with everyone. What is it and why?
My proudest professional moment as a model is when I wake up every morning looking to challenge myself by getting prepared to audition for a casting and being brave enough to hold my head up high, smile, be confident, and represent myself as a Professional model with nothing to loose because I still came to win by showing up.
Belle , please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
Each project I embrace is either challenging, breathtaking or both. As a Visual artist specializing in Glass Painting, I had to teach myself how to recreate what I've drawn on paper onto a glass painting. It only took 4 hours to teach me. Result of being a creative optimistic is your best work is developed by mistakes. The difficult part was embracing the fact that my work isn't perfect.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
Continue to create a better "You" every time you look into the mirror and tell yourself "No weapon formed against you shall prosper because prosperity is in my favor".
