I’m currently studying accounting at Australian Catholic University and working as a financial administrator as a part-time job.
I also do modelling as a casual job on the side. I have done some background acting on IGA commercials, Janet King tv series and some collaborations with photographers, stylists and makeup artists. I would say, I haven’t done much of modelling work, but it’s
something I love and I have a dream to see myself on a billboard or a very popular magazine
I am good at working with people, collaborating with photographers, makeup artists and stylists to create something unique.
Deborah Ojo specialises in commercial modelling, editorials, photo shoots, high fashion currently in Sydney.
Our readers would love to get to know you more Deborah. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?
I’m a talk black skinned lady with a very short hair. I’m friendly and easy going. I’m willing to try new ideas and learn.
Deborah, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
I’ll say I haven’t done much modelling work. Just TFP’s but I love it and see myself learning and enjoying the experience.
Who is your inspiration in life Deborah? How do you keep inspired?
Lupita Nyongo. After I cut my hair, a lot of people said I looked like Grace Jones.
We all make mistakes Deborah; 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 been in that position yet. I l work well with other people and very open-minded.
Deborah , 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 tend to prioritise the jobs that pay well and are closer to home.
Please tell us, Deborah , about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
I haven’t been in that position yet.
Deborah, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
Haven’t been in that situation.
Deborah, 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 with share to everyone. What is it and why?
My proudest moment as a model is my first time in front of a professional photographer.
Deborah, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
The exciting part of being creative is trying out new things I never tried before, but we all have our limits. I remembered a time when I was asked if I could come for a photo shoot with snakes. I have a phobia for snakes, so I had to say no. After they had the shoot with a different model, I loved how the pictures turned out, but I knew it wasn’t something I was willing to be creative with.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
Don’t rush into it. Take it one step at a time. Always work hard but at your pace. Be open-minded and keep putting yourself out there till your breakthrough comes. Never give up.
