State / Region
I am an aspiring model from Birmingham, Al. Since I was younger, I have been told that I should start modeling. Right now, I said, "Well, why not!!" I love fashion photography and editorial shoots. I would love to be a runway model as well, possibly.
Kiera, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as Model?
I started as a model by taking regular pictures for my social media. Local photographers would look at my pictures and reach out to me to do a shoot. That's how this passion for modeling started because I realized how fun and exciting this industry could be.
Who is your inspiration in life Kiera? How do you stay inspired as a Model?
I have always looked up to models such as Heidi Klum, Chanel Iman, Iman, and many others. As a model, I am inspired by the ever-changing fashion trends.
We all make mistakes Kiera; we wish we could take back. What was the mistake you made in the past that you wish you can take back?
I believe that all mistakes are lessons learned. I don't think that there is any mistake that I would want to take back because I feel that I have learned so much and have grown so much from them.
Kiera, How do you describe yourself in terms of working with clients?
I am very easy to work with. I take direction very well, and I always keep a positive attitude.
Please tell us, Kiera, how do you prioritize work, social life, friends, and family?
I consider myself a planner. I like to plan out everything about my day, so I try to fit in work, friends, etc. I would say that I am very time conscious.
Kiera, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
Its all about communication. If you are able to explain your ideas so that they are easily understandable, then you will be successful with people seeing things from your point of view.
Kiera, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model.
I am just starting modeling, so I can take all the exposure that I can get. When I started to do photoshoots with photographers, I would post the pictures onto my social media. My proudest accomplishment was when a mother agency reached out to me about potentially having a meeting with me. At that moment, I realized that I could do this!
Kiera, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
When planning a shoot with my photographer, I suggested that we try a new look other than the two we already discussed. When shooting with the dress that I suggested it turned out to be the best look out of all of them!
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
If modeling is really what you want to do, then do it! It takes work and dedication, but most importantly have fun!
