Hi Model Citizen Magazine! What an amazing opportunity you have set up for aspiring models and social influencers. My name is Meg Carter, I am 16 years old and have big dreams for the future. One day I want to inspire people. I want to prove myself and help other prove them too. At this stage, I'm exploring my options. I am ambitious and determined. I enjoy socializing and literature. I've had modeling and tv experience and have fallen totally in love with the industry :)
Would you like to complete our full Editorial interview or skip straight to uploading your photos? (12 more interview questions).
Our readers would love to get to know you more Meg. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?
I come from a small country town. My area is particularly partial to bushfires, and in 2014 I lost my house in a devastating blaze. Because of this, I matured early. Such experiences led me to discover myself at a young age and introduced me to who I am. I'm a relatable and driven character, who loves music, media, and books and just wants to make a difference in the world.
Meg, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
My passion is to make a change. I want to inspire and achieve. One day I want to publish a novel. I think modeling has been a huge stepping stone for me, as I would never have been introduced to such possibility if I hadn't taken all experiences offered to me. I was scouted through my social media and since have been photographed by some incredibly talented agencies. I am blessed to have been given such experiences, I am proof that for girls like me, anything is possible.
Who is your inspiration in life Meg? How do you keep inspired?
I keep inspired by who I used to be. My main motivation is growth. Becoming a bigger and better person than I was. Respecting myself and my body as well as the being who surround me.
We all make mistakes Meg, 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'm only new to the industry. I am young and only starting out. Recently I was trying to organize some work experience with a studio near me. I was very vague and uncommitted to our arrangements, which frustrated the studio manager (understandably too!!) I had prior commitments and finding free dates was a difficult task. I wish I hadn't been so diplomatic about planning my time and paid more respect to the studio that was willing to take me on as a student.
Meg, 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?
I am myself. My nature is to please, so my answer is always yes. I don't let outside influences get in the way of what I am asked to do.
Please tell us, Meg, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
Time management is key. If you haven't left enough time to prepare for a shoot or event, you will never feel as confident as you should. Bending the rules is okay.
Meg, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
I once bought a hat for a shoot. The photographer wasn't too keen, but I showed her how I could make it work and why it added something different to my outfit. She was pleased and my photo's turned out excellent.
Meg, 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?
Making Country Girl Finals. It was my first ever modeling experience and to be chosen in the top 20 was a memorable moment. I'd never thought I was good enough, but I did it. And now look where I am.
Meg, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
I did a shoot involving 3 different outfits. I got to choose them all. I chose 3 different outfits that expressed who I am and how I live. It was an absolute pleasure to be able to express myself and my attitude through what I wore and dictate what I wanted to portray.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
Be kind and take every opportunity you get. Never say no. Believe that you're here for a reason and that you're goals in life are both achievable and worth being achieved.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands, and creatives? If yes, please state what type of collaboration you are looking for?
Anything and Everything.
Now for the best part Meg! Please upload 5-10 photos so we can get to see your work.
