I stand up for what I believe in.
Djamila, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
Lupita made me want to start modelling because she says she is not too dark to be beautiful and that is my motto. I aspire to be an international model and an international lawyer at the same time. I want to have the looks and the knowledge of the books.
Who is your inspiration in life Djamila? How do you keep inspired?
Rihana and Lupita. The way I stay inspired is by telling myself that I can Change the meaning of beauty.
We all make mistakes Djamila; 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.
When I did my first fashion show models were rude at first I would not speak, but now I am outspoken
Djamila, 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 prioritising your clients’ needs?
I look at the level of respect I am given and go from there. The more you respect me, the more I will prioritise you.
Please tell us Djamila, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
Not always prioritising negative comments.
Djamila, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
Whenever I am trying to persuade someone to see the way I use facts so people can see.
Djamila, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
To generalise when I receive requests to model for a company or a photographer.
Djamila, 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 had a recent photo shoot in a studio, and it was my first time working in a studio and I have to do something different. It was very exciting to experience.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
Donâ€™t always look for the money do it out of love and be patient. I would also say stay humble and treat people with kindness.
