Bony, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
Personally, my passion is my children and my family, at a professional level it is my career as a personal fitness trainer. My aspiration in life is to educate my children in the world of well-being and health and to be able to transmit both to them and to all the people who support me and follow me that everything is possible with dedication and with the effort necessary to achieve it. That there is no need to neglect any aspect ofour lives to achieve what we want in life, that family must be first.Personally, I aspire to be for my children the best model role as mother, and I professionally aspire to be recognised as one of the best coaches, motivators and life enthusiast fitness model. How did I start as a Model? Well, I always assumed that to be a model you had to be a super tall (I'm short), I never realised that there were so many others areas of modelling other than the runway. After my body transformation people would always come up to me and say me, you have a beautiful body; you should model. One of those persons who my first son, who is the founder of The Nutrition Zone and I started off with sports apparel modelling, after that I've been a photoshoot with fitness photographers. That's inspired me! After that, I didn't care how tall I was!
Who is your inspiration in life Bony? How do you keep inspired?
My children! My family! My mentors were my parents; they shaped who I'm today, they always encouraged me to follow my dreams and be creative.The â„’â„´ Ñµâ„¯ of my family keeps me Inspire all the time!
We all make mistakes Bony; 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.
So far, I don't have that experience, but surely I'll have them, and I hope I can handle them as it's part of all this.
Bony, 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?
Both my career as a personal trainer and my short modelling career have something in common.Â So far I can say that the success I have had with them has been because in our initial interview we defined what we want to project with a product "x", the goal we want to achieve, the time in which we want to achieve it, What we need to project, what kind of audience we want to have and the commitment that both parties must meet in order to succeed.
Please tell us Bony, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
As a Model, I haven't had the opportunity to do it, but I'm sure when I get the opportunity I'll do the best for it.
Bony, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
I've never done that.
Bony, 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?
It was when I got a photoshoot for the Creative Director of a Canadian magazine. Why? Simply because they shoot for his magazine famous models.Hee is a person who inspires you to believe in yourself then after that photoshoot I've been more focused on work on my dreams.
Bony, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
That happened to me with the Canadian magazine, the most exciting thing was the same as it was difficult and it was to choose the clothes that would use for the photoshoot so that it could exhibit a fit body, with little clothes but without falling into obscenity.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
First of all, you don't have to compare yourself to anyone, your virtues and your defects are your best tools to make you the image you want to be.Second one, you have truly believed that to make in this industry you need to be persistent, confident and dedicated.
