Firstly Bri, how would you best describe yourself?
Model

Bri. Tell us ABOUT yourself. 
Growing up I've never felt confident in myself. I started modelling with the photographers around my area, and they all said I was photo genic and that I should apply to this agency. I love modelling it gives me a thrill I've never felt before.

We all make mistakes Bri; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about a time being a Model; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
It's a little bit hard for me getting to know a new photographer, but I do it all the time it's uncomfortable, but I pushed aside the feeling and focus on what I came here to do.

Bri, 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?

Are usually work around my photographer's schedule if they're available then I will book that week with them unless I'm busy

Please tell us Bri, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Model?

I had a very busy schedule that day I had to go to Portland for a photo shoot and then all the way back to Hillsborough for my sisters birthday party it was very hard, but I managed to do it

Bri, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
I persuade them by showing them my photos and them getting to know me when people get to know me they feel more comfortable than rather with a stranger. Hopefully, my photos will tend to persuade them

Bri, 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 moment as a model was my family after I showed them my photos I saw the smile on my mom's face, and it made me feel so proud

Bri, 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 remember I did a photo shoot and I had to hold the scorpion which is the yoga stretch in a position, and it was very hard, but the photo turned out very creative, and I loved it

What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?

Just be yourself don't let anyone change you and love you for who you are
