Magnolia, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
My passions and aspirations in life are showing people that being different is also beautiful. My mother put me in modelling when I was younger, but it became a passion the first time I was able to express myself freely at a Runway show and from that point on Modeling has always given me a natural high to be myself or my alter ego. I also love the people that I have met/become friends with throughout my career!
Who is your inspiration in life Magnolia? How do you keep inspired?
My grandma! And being a role model to my daughter and others like myself. Positive thinking, the law of attraction. Likes attract likes
We all make mistakes Magnolia; 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 were some words exchanged at a Runway show I was a part of, and I made it clear to the ones that were hosting the event that myself and the other models were not happy about being misinformed about our pay and prep of the show. I could have met with the girls being that I am a (mentor ) to go over things they felt were unnecessary about how things were brought up to us.
Magnolia, 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 prioritising your clients’ needs?
I try to make time for all of them at their conscience and mine to make things a lot easier for the both of us
Please tell us Magnolia, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
A runway show I did last fall I had to meet with each designer I was walking for.I made time to meet with them all after work which worked out good; my motto is to make time especially for your clients because they will make time for you.
Magnolia, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
I had to set up a mandatory meeting but previous times didn't work for our staff. I decided let's do it after one of our group classes that way most of the staff is here anyway and it worked out. They have me set up them meetings now :)
Magnolia, 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?
The very first runway show event I put together was a hit. I never put together a big show like this and was very proud to say the event was sold out. All the models were very happy, and we got a standing ovation. That is still one of my proudest moments because I taught all the girls to walk and they all did an amazing job. Mostly all of them that were cast are doing wonderful things now with their modelling careers.
Magnolia, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
Putting together a group shoot. The difficult part as always is coordinating a time with all involved. The exciting part was when we all got together it was a blast and ended up being a beautiful shoot.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
Continue to do what you love! Don't get discouraged if they tell you No, and be yourself. Believe in yourself and believe in what you are doing.Always be confident even if you have to take it till you make it!
