Our readers would love to get to know you more Graciela. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?
My biggest passion is in fitness which shows dedication. I am very determined and always give my 100%. People always compliment me about my style; the way I pair my outfit together and just the way I represent myself.
Graciela, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
My biggest passion includes fitness, photo modelling and dancing. I started by having some professional photos done in different styles that I submitted to agencies, and through them I was picked to model for a clothing company, I also joined a background acting agency where I booked lots of tv shows as a background actor and few others where I was featured as a talented extra where I got lots of camera time (e.g.: playing a dancer or a model) I also joined a dance group where we had to perform on stage, and I got into a music video. I have done fitness competitions to get more familiar with stage presence and get more noticed as I got featured in a fitness magazine through doing competitions.
Who is your inspiration in life Graciela? How do you keep inspired?
I keep myself inspired by working on myself, keeping a positive attitude and always looking out for more opportunities. Success in most cases is about the mindset. I wasn't born in a famous family, so I have to make myself famous or noticed, but this includes hard work and positivity.
We all make mistakes Graciela; 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.
There's nothing I can think of right now. I don't take work that I don't want to do (inappropriate)
Graciela, 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?
As I mentioned I give my 100%. I am kind to everyone and making others happy/satisfied/entertained will make me feel good so I always strive for the best. No one is perfect, and I accept that. If others can't see the best in me, I go to the next one until I find myself 100% accepted and able to work together. I only surround myself with positive people so I can help myself to help others.
Please tell us, Graciela , about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
Being a model isn't easy as others would think. It comes with lots of challenges and making them work, being in an uncomfortable position where there's no change room for example and have to either change in the car or under towels, posing in the coldest weather in a bikini or staying in the hot sun for a long period but knowing that I'm doing this for my advantage to get ahead I had to push through it.
Graciela, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
I always explain myself if I don't think something's fair I stand up for myself and don't let anybody force me to do anything.
Graciela, 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?
I enjoyed shooting the music video I appeared in. There were three days of shooting, but I wasn't there on the first scene. The artist liked me so much that he featured me the most and in the end, everyone had to redo the whole scene that they did on the first day so that I can be on it as well.
Graciela, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
Being on stage is sometimes frightening, and due to nervousness people tend do mess up. This happened to me on my dance performance but keeping a positive attitude and not making it obvious and just continue with the rest performance didn't even make it look so bad.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
Always go with a positive mindset. Anything is possible in life as long as you work hard and attract the positive energy. Don't let anybody force you to do anything you don't want. There are always other opportunities. You can only give your best if you feel good about doing what you're doing!
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?
My focus is mostly dancing in music videos, modelling for clothing companies (e.g.: guess, Marciano, Bebe, la Cosenza, Victoria's Secret) and all the other brand names and accessories.
Now for the best part Graciela! Please upload 5-10 photos so we can get to see your work.
