Firstly Dominique, how would you best describe yourself?

Would you like us to recommend you to clients looking for a  Model near your area?

Dominique, please tell us your talent/work rate per hour?

Dominique . Tell us ABOUT yourself. 
Modeling, blogging, music videos, motivational speaking, fashion, makeup, reality tv

Would you like to complete our full Editorial interview or skip straight to uploading your photos? (12 more interview questions).

Our readers would love to get to know you more Dominique. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?

I am a mother of two. I attend school for phlebotomy and have a dream of becoming a historic. I love makeup, fashion & staying fit & healthy. I love talking about all things in the music/Modeling industry. I'm hoping one day to work my way up to radio or tv personality. I literally live a double life & keep my personal life very secluded and private when it comes to my children and family. Everyone is always shocked to hear about both lifestyles and how I balance them out from working as a server modelling & being a full-time single mommy of two. I have many stories behind how I became the woman I am today and would love to write a book & tell all.

Dominique, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?

My passion is staying fit and healthy. Not only for my well being but for my children. I started off modelling by doing my first music video, people loved it, and the publicity started. I have had multiple gigs this year, and this is the year my career boomed, and I started putting a lot of work into looking my best that required me to even put a school on hold. I am also very thankful for a few close friends in the music/modelling industry that has helped me gain the career I have as one.

Who is your inspiration in life Dominique? How do you keep inspired?

My inspiration in life would be my goals & dreams for my kids and me. I have a certain life style I love to live and that I want to give my children. So those dreams for my children and myself is what keeps me on my toes and working hard!

We all make mistakes Dominique; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about a time being a Model; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
I can't even give an example really that I wish I could take Back.

Dominique, 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?

Constantly maintaining a good schedule, staying in contact with the clients and making sure I arrive on time and give them exactly what they want.

Please tell us, Dominique , about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Model?

Well since I'm a mother last minute calls can be hard to attend. But I always prepare for them and have a backup plan. I guess I'd say a day I had a last minute shoot and I was really needed I was able to find a sitter get bags packed and be on time to the gig. 

Dominique, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
I'm very creative and persuasive so majority of the time when I have an idea for a shoot, people can vision it right away.

Dominique, 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 moment so far would be winning as a finalist on a podcast. We had to audition in person amongst many I've never met. Then make a 45-second video about us and why we should win and then have people vote for us. I was shocked I won but so proud of myself for putting myself out there and actually sticking to it & working hard

Dominique, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
Well once when a wardrobe malfunction I was able to come up with a way to fix it and please everyone I was working with to continue the shoot

What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?

Never give up! It may be a long road, at that tiring. Things won't always go your way, and you may be turned down but if you keep working hard and putting yourself out there I promise you will succeed. I've been working towards becoming a model since 19; it's taking me six years to get where I'm at, and it all has happened this year. Don't ever let anyone tell you you can't do it. There may be jobs you aren't paid for but remember you have to start somewhere 

Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?
Yes, clothing lines/accessories, makeup, health and beauty.
