State / Region
I am currently a freelance published model located in the United States. I am very passionate about the art of modeling. What makes me unique is that a challenge highly motivates me. I will stop at nothing to pursue the best results of a project. I love collaborating with a team to produce the best finishing product.
Christina, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as Model?
My passion in life is to be the best version of myself. My aspiration is to model to the best of my ability. I started as a model through local photographers who helped me to build my portfolio. I now am a published model, and I can't wait to see what the future has in store.
Who is your inspiration in life, Christina? How do you stay inspired as a Model?
My inspiration in life is my mother. She truly motivates me to be the best version of myself. She constantly reminds me to chase my dreams and never give up on them. I can only hope to be as successful and inspirational as her one day.
We all make mistakes, Christina, we wish we could take back. What was the mistake you made in the past that you wish you can take back?
One mistake I have made in the past has been not managing my time well. In the past, I have put too much on my plate at once. I have learned from this mistake, and I make sure to prioritize my tasks from most important to least important.
Christina, How do you describe yourself in terms of working with clients?
When working with clients, I am highly professional and easy going. I make sure always to put my best foot forward to achieve the best results.
Please tell us, Christina, how do you prioritize work, social life, friends, and family?
My family and friends are very important to me, as is working and having a social life. I make sure not to overwork myself and to make time for leisure activities. Finding a good balance is always a struggle, but it is important to make work a priority as well as spending time with family. After all, your family and friends will be what matters the most.
Christina, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
In one recent instance, I was working with another model who for a group photo shoot. She was acting very unprofessional and disorderly. When the photographer wasn't listening, she would be whispering disrespectful things about him to me. I politely corrected her behavior and explained that she was not acting professionally. I don't think she expected me to react like that, but her entire demeanor changed after that. She stopped acting inappropriately, and the images turned out much better.
Christina, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model.
My proudest professional accomplishment as a model would be getting published in my first magazine. I look forward to other collaborations with magazines in the future.
Christina, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
In one recent instance, I was shooting with a photographer who challenged me to get creative with my posing. It was exciting because I was challenged to really think outside of the box and physically enact my ideas. It was difficult because the poses were very challenging, but the result images were amazing, and we were very satisfied with our work.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
Anyone who wants to be successful as a model should always have a positive attitude and be open to new ideas. They should also have a mindset to do their best. Being a model also means that you have to be able to take constructive criticism in order to grow in modeling. Anybody can be a model; it doesn't matter what size or shape you are.
