I believe that we should never stop learning, and if learning stops, growth stops.
Drew, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
To further my education and expand my portfolio/resume.
Who is your inspiration in life Drew? How do you keep inspired?
I am inspired by watching people achieve their dreams. If you lose all of your passions, then you lose yourself.
We all make mistakes Drew; 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 have only worked with caring and understanding photographers, so luckily I have not had any negative experiences thus far.
Drew, 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?
It is important to keep a line of open communication so that the best product is achieved and that both parties are satisfied.
Please tell us, Drew, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
A model has to be organised and well put together because when you have multiple shoots close to each other along with two jobs and school, planning is necessary to make sure that everything runs smoothly.
Drew, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
All of the photographers that I have worked with have been very open to suggestions on my part to produce quality work.
Drew 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?
My proudest accomplishment is how far my body image and confidence has come. I am so comfortable in my skin, and I truly trust myself.
Drew, 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 recently did a shoot involving running and fitness. A healthy lifestyle is a great passion of mine, and I was so happy that I got to capture that in a shoot.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
It's cliche but do it. There will never be a time when you are 100% comfortable and confident, so dive right in.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state what type of collaboration you are looking for?
Yes, fashion and makeup brands. Open to other suggestions.
