I want to model all over the world while travelling so each experience can teach me more about myself. I am really into fashion and would love to style people for a living. One of my dreams is to have my own modelling company and having a fun runway for models who deserve recognition. I recently just walked in a fashion show, and I had a blast being able to walk the runway.

Our readers would love to get to know you more Kierston. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?
I am full of good energy, I am very friendly, and I always try to make people around me happy. I love to dance. I believe I will be one of the best models to ever live and will start a trend in the modelling industry.
Kierston, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
Modeling and fashion is my number passion because I feel I can be myself. It just seems fitting for me to love clothes and being able to put a nice outfit together. I started modelling three years ago, and I noticed how much fun I had in front of the camera. I then decided to start modelling because I've always had dreams of being on a billboard, in stores, magazine, etc. I pictured myself in multiple places because I think I am capable of being everywhere with my look.
Who is your inspiration in life Kierston? How do you keep inspired?
Inspiration can come from anything that will motivate me to be better. I am my biggest inspiration because if I'm not confident in my looks, style, and mentality, then no one will be able to notice it. Music always inspires me because there are certain songs that make you feel some type of way/
We all make mistakes Kierston, 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 went to Wilhelmina agency for open calls in LA, and I remember i did not put a nice outfit together. I do not know why i just put something on and expected them to pick me within a week to come back. I knew I was not going to get a callback, so I learned that i should always put 100 percent into everything I do.
Kierston, 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?
By listening to them and have an understanding of what they want. I believe being able to listen from other peoples experience is key to adding them to my life.
Please tell us Kierston, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
As a freelance model, I just try to be the best version of myself in every photoshoot I have.
Kierston, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
I have not persuaded anyone to see things my way, but I do try to work it out so get ideas from both sides.
Kierston 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?
Being able to walk in the runway in LA last Saturday. I was so excited to be there and pose for the camera. I knew as soon as I changed into my second outfit that this is what I want to do with my life.
Kierston, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
Editing some of my photos allows me to be more creative and different. I never really liked bland pictures so I always try to add some artistic editing for my pictures. I want people to feel like they are looking at a model and art at the same time.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
Be yourself, always be camera ready, never let anyone crush your dreams, have a mindset of being able to change something different about modelling and the world.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state what type of collaboration you are looking for?
I would love to work for H&M. I know my overall attitude is just H&M.
Now for the best part Kierston! Please upload 5-10 photos so we can get to see your work.
