I use all my knowledge on the modeling and fashion industry to empower women to have self-confidence
Ilka, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Blogger?
My passion is about helping others to feel comfortable in their skin. My aspiration in the near future is to open a non-profit entity to instruct refinement? Modelling and beauty tools for low income or disadvantaged women and girls so they can learn all the tools to believe in themselves.
Who is your inspiration in life Ilka? How do you keep inspired?
Open my non-profit providing tools to improve self-esteem to women. I keep inspired working in Modeling Schools and my own blog providing my knowledge to all my followers and students.
We all make mistakes Ilka; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Blogger; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
Sometimea people can disagree, the important step is to talk around thing on a real matter. I have one experience with a colaboration for my blog and viceversa. The other person wasnt satisfied with my article and ask me if I wrote my own articles. I ask her if she was using mine if not I will use the article for my own blog. Funny thing the same article is giving me a lot of traffic on my blog. I don't let that situation get on my way... and make lemonade of them.
Ilka, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Blogger, how do you go about prioritising your clients’ needs?
I try to get delivery in the same order I receive it, if not I try to make a request on little groups depending on the type of request I am dealing with.
Please tell us, Ilka, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Blogger?
I have been on those moments that you will think that you won't meet all your task but the most important is being organised on what you do.
Ilka, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
I have suggested better or easy ways to teach modeling, and I gave them a visual and example on how can instructing can be easiest to learn.
Ilka, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Blogger. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
Well right now is that moment, I have my blog live and evolving from nothing to a complete one and still growing in the process.
Ilka, 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 have to be creative all the time as a model/blogger and look for different ways to reinvent myself all the time. Publishing or making new articles or photos to my followers.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Blogger?
Put everything out there, read a lot, everytime you think you nail one thing some new will appear to learn. Never give up and be persistent.
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, collaboration is a beautiful way to network with people with same interests. I would like to collaborate with: Fashion Designers, makeup artist, models, self-confidence orators etc
