Lydia, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
I would love to pursue modelling full time as I am have been encouraged by friends and family that I have the looks and brains to make a success of it. I also have much creative energy which I would love to share with the world given the opportunity. I love art, fashion, writing, education; I am a fierce advocate for women’s rights and education for children everywhere. I am registered with bookittalent a casting agency in Toronto, Canada and they thought I would be perfect for lifestyle shots. I suggested for commercials and landed a job for a Nissan commercial link here ( https://www.ispot.tv/ad/7_SK/2015-nissan-altima-feel-like-royalty)
Moreover, recently my agent is trying to push my uncanny resemblance to Megan Markle
