Clifford . Tell us ABOUT yourself.
I'm currently an unemployed model who strives for the best.modeling allows me to feel free from the world.Modeling came into my life around the of 14.my first time being in front of a camera was fun I got to see how famous people felt. Coming from where I come from is not easy trying to be a supper model because everyone around you is selling drugs or they're in jail. Every since I was a kid, I told myself that I would be different in a way that people can relate to my struggle and be motivated by my success. Life to me is exciting because every day I wake up I'm on a mission to be the best model ever to live. I might not have had an easy life watching my mom work two jobs and seeing my dad abandon his family for drugs but I know one day I'll be the start of a new life for my family.
Our readers would love to get to know you more Clifford. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?
Growing up in pompano beach Florida you learn how to survive through the toughest times, that's what shaped me into the person I am today.I kept myself out of trouble by playing sports and staying to myself so no one would bother me.I got into a couple of fights, but I learned from them.As I got older, my mindset began to expand to the point where all I could think about is a success and making a better life for my mom.Life isn't easy where I'm from especially when everyone around you is negative. One shot to have a strong impact on the world through my modeling is all I want so I can think the youth's hearts.
Clifford, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
Teaching people how to keep going and be beautiful no matter what others say about them is my passion. Lifting people's spirit's is a big thing for me because I know what it's like to be at the bottom and then hear someone speak positive things to me, it's one of the best feelings in the world. I speak through my pictures; I leave a positive quote under every picture so the youth's spirits can be lifted.When I get feed back from my fans telling me how I encourage them to be a bigger person than they were the day before it gives me chills in my body.I have dreams of one day driving in a red Porsche 911 with all white interior speeding down the high way headed to my million dollar home with white marble floors in LA, and that's what also keeps me focus on my goals.My life is going to be good from my predictions.
Who is your inspiration in life Clifford? How do you keep inspired?
My inspiration is meek mill he keeps me grounded.Growing up with out a father and a mom that always works trying to get money to pay the bills by herself I didn't have parent's to look up too.Meek talks about being the best and how he came from nothing in his music, that's why I always listen to his advice about life.I look at the meek mill as an older version of me because we come from the same setting just different cities. I hope to meet meek one day so we can have a long wise conversation about life that'll be the day we come up with a plan to change the youth's mindset.
We all make mistakes Clifford, 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.
One day I told my friends that im a model, they laughed and began to make jokes saying things such as "your gay" "you're too short" and "your not going to make it". After hearing the people I though I could trust say negative things about me to bring my spirit down it hurt me more than anything. The biggest mistake that I have ever made was surrounded myself around people who didn't have the same intentions as me.Being a model has taught me that im going to be criticized and people are always going to have something negative to say so now I just keep it moving.
Clifford ,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?
When working with a large number of clients and I feel like I'm clustered I usually just take a deep breath and began to organize everything. When I get quite and block everything that's around out, and focus on what's Important, I notice that I accomplish a lot.
Please tell us, Clifford , about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
Every morning I wake up I have to be strategic because I have goals to meet.Everyday I have ten different people send a shout out through Instagram to get people to follow me.Ive been getting more followers and that's made me happy because it's showing progress in my thinking and my followers. Once I get 1million followers, I can begin to spread my pictures and my inspiration through the world.
Clifford, 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 people around me every day because they see my progress. One of my friends who doubted me wants to be just like me now that he sees that my pictures got better and I have more followers on Instagram. One day I was in the mall, and this lady stops me so she could persuade me to by some face cream and face soap 180$.I end up telling her I was a model and that I would model her soap if she would bring the price down, she brought the price down to 50 and gave me the soap for free.Life is good.
Clifford, 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 was when I got my first message from a girl telling me I inspired her to embrace who she is.
Clifford, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
One of my photoshoots took place in the woods.It was a great experience because it was my first time having a shoot in the woods. When the bugs began to bite the shoot began to be difficult because I couldn't pose how I wanted too.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
