ABOUT

EMBRACE YOUR UNIQUENESS

Hey!

I’m Marcia, a professional model from Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

When I was little, I always used to say I wanted to become a model.

However, I was very shy, didn’t feel pretty enough, wasn’t happy with my length and didn’t embrace my curves and curls.

Many times throughout my life people came up to me and asked me if I ever thought about a modelling career.

However, out of fear of failure, I never took that first step.

Until last year.

After a turbulent life, I decided to change my life completely.

I decided to embrace myself and went from straight hair back to curls.

To further improve myself as a whole I started a personal development course and explored my talents.

Moreover, of course, I went to the gym every day to create a body that makes me feel powerful and happy.

Here I am one year later.

I’m a professional model now www.marciamanduapessy.com

I feel so incredibly blessed and thankful for the people around me who were part of my transformation and supported me along the way.

I intend to continue this beautiful journey and would love to work with amazing brands like Rituals Cosmetics, Deva Curl, Nike and other inspiring brands who empower people to be all they can be.

I strongly believe now is the time for people to embrace their uniqueness and share their talents with the world.

Stop comparing yourself to others.

Stop listening to the naysayers

Be proud of who you are and the gifts you have to share with the world

Love, Marcia

Our readers would love to get to know you more Marcia. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you, your brand or the services you offer?

What makes me unique is my personality. I'm always positive, motivated, eager to learn, ready to help, flexible, a good listener and I have a great empathic ability which makes it easy to connect with clients.

I also used to work in the fashion, beauty and hair industry as a salesperson, stylist and make-up artist.

Therefore I can help the client bring their creative vision come alive.

Marcia, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?

My passion is to enjoy every day fully.

Only by doing the things that make me and my son happy. Work with only positive, creative people around the world to create beautiful things together.

Along with this journey I hope to inspire and motivate others to live their lives to the fullest.

My aspiration in life is through modelling and personal styling, letting people see how beautiful and unique they are and that they must be proud of themselves.

I sincerely believe everyone here has something to offer the world.

Who is your inspiration in life Marcia? How do you stay inspired as Model?

Daily I get inspired by many people who choose to live their life to the fullest.

They have goals and dreams and are committed to achieving them.

Moreover, along with their beautiful journeys they motivate and inspire other people around them, I love that!

I stay inspired as a model through social media. I daily study how other models pose in front of the camera so I can challenge myself to get better in what I do.

I also read a lot of fashion, business, health, sport and lifestyle magazines to stay inspired.

We all make mistakes Marcia; we wish we could take back. What was the error you made in the past that you want to you can bring back?

Loving and embracing myself for who I am.

I wouldn't call this a mistake.

However, it would have saved me a lot of tears and struggles.

Then again I believe it was all meant to happen for a reason.

Marcia, How do you describe yourself in terms of working with clients?

I’m confident, positive, motived, always eager to learn, helpful, flexible, a good listener and I have a great empathic ability which makes it easy to connect with clients.

I also used to work in the fashion, beauty and hair industry as a salesperson, stylist and make-up artist.

Therefore I can help the client bring their creative vision come alive.

Please tell us, Marcia, how do you prioritise work, social life, friends, and family?

In order of urgency, I prioritise.

I note all my appointments in my agenda by using good time management where I create the balance that makes me feel comfortable so I can be well present during every meeting.

Marcia, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.

Once while shooting, I suggested adding some other jewellery to my outfit because it made the outfit look richer and more complete.

Marcia, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model.

My proudest accomplishment was walking the runway for Schwarzkopf as a model.

That moment meant a lot to me because it confirmed my transformation.

Marcia, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?

At the beginning of my career, there wasn’t always a

make-up artist or stylist at my photo shoots.

Therefore I had to do my make-up and styling.

However, since I’m a make-up artist and stylist, it was very exciting and fun to do it myself.

What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?*

*

Believe in yourself, be confident and own who you are.

Think about what makes you unique and how you can use this as a model.

Study other models so that you can learn from them and grow as a model.

Never give up, always have faith and be willing to help others with their career.
