Maria, 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 my best to give what am needed to. I have all The needs on the mind and to deliver what it's best

Please tell us, Maria, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Model?

When I have to take different emotions in a picture, I may take a while to be in the mood, so I try to think of situations in order to get the right look
