My open-mindedness contributes to a vast portion of my uniqueness. Becoming extensively creative and applying those skills to my brand as a model and newly founded CEO. It allows me to be more in control of the exceptions and standards I have, especially when it comes to being a brand ambassador and print model.
Diamond, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as Model?
In June of 2016, I began modelling. My first photo shoot was of me posing and advertising for local brands. It then turned into one of my passions, and it aspired me to become a print model for various clothing companies.
Who is your inspiration in life Diamond? How do you stay inspired as a Model?
Jai Nice and Karen Civil are my two biggest inspirations in life. For years I have witnessed them build and expand their brands globally. It helped me place my plan in perspective to one day do the same. As a model, staying consistent and open to different fun, ecstatic concepts are what keeps me inspired,
We all make mistakes Diamond; we wish we could take back. What was the mistake you made in the past that you wish you can take back?
One mistake of many I have made in the past was allowing my perfectionist ego to get in the way of accepting different opportunities. I feel I was way too picky of what I wanted to get myself involved with.
Diamond, How do you describe yourself in terms of working with clients?
Working with clients, I tend not to treat them as clients more so as a family. I do aim to build relationships with them. Making it easier for them to be open and creatively involved in whatever project we are working on.
Please tell us, Diamond, how do you prioritise work, social life, friends, and family?
These things are not as easy to balance as you think when you're involved in so much. But I tend to make the time to be involved in each. You are prioritising from what's MOST important to what's just important.
Diamond, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
As a visually creative, being able to supply or back up my ideas with distinct examples of how I want something to look help's a lot. When doing my first commercial for VLOGTV, I had to provide a visual representation of the location, look, edit in order for the videographer to see the vision.
Diamond, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model.
One of my proudest moments as a model has also been getting published. That recognition is so important to me. It confirms that my art is being noticed and adored. And that there is someone who wants to contribute to what it is I do. It's a great feeling.
Diamond, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
Recently I have gifted the opportunity to manage and host a listening party for an artist. I was able to step into my desirable field of marketing. It was exciting because so many people came out and congratulated me on a job well-done.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
Never be afraid of letting loose and being yourself. You are beautiful in your special way; you can conquer anything. Live through your career with that mindset.
