Whatâ€™s unique about me is that I always thrive to see the good and better in things no matter the circumstance. Your mind is a very powerful thing, and with a powerful mind and strong will, you can do anything you put your mind to
Mellissa, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
My passion is feeling and becoming the inner beauty that a picture can capture. I started out by just doing it on the side and learned that I fell in love with the whole beauty and style of modelling to see how everyone works together and thinks differently to form something Is amazing.
Who is your inspiration in life Mellissa? How do you keep inspired?
My inspiration is my son. He's my whole world, and he pushes me to be strong and do better and better in everything I do because itâ€™s all for him.
We all make mistakes Mellissa; 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.
I haven't had an exact situation like that but if I'm not confident in something I would like to believe it's always better to have the extra support.
Mellissa, 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?
To me your a team. If you and your team do not meet halfway, in order to accomplish something, then your never a team at all. Whoever is willing to meet me half way so we can make the goal accomplished is who comes first
Please tell us, Mellissa, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
I had to be on point about everything I did I had to make sure I gave it my all and then some to make this shoot happen.
Mellissa, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
I usually like to tell people to see it from an outside view. To me, it's easier sometimes to understand why someone may say or do something one way rather than another when you're able to look at the whole picture rather than one side
Mellissa, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
I have always been someone who had been very, and there was a shoot I did that I just felt amazing and wanted the world to realise how much you need to love yourself and that everyone is beautiful in his or her way.
Mellissa, 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 think it was exciting and difficult. It was exciting because I got to show them what I got and give them a Taste of my side of things, but it was difficult because I wanted to impress them and show them I was worth it.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
Never give up. Always use the negatives and points as a motive to push yourself to do better next time. Always be confident and know your beautiful. If you want something bad enough, your dream will come true so never give up.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state what type of collaboration you are looking for?
Yes, I am I am looking to meet and work with bigger companies and people to see the whole ins and outs of the modelling industry to get the best experience and time there is so I can be signed and have this as a career.
