ABOUT
I am a college student who majors in kinesiology and minors in gerontology with an aspiration to become a geriatric physical therapist. I love to learn about the body and modelling helps me to express myself using my own body. Modeling to me is a way to take a break from being a shy bookworm to a bold model. I can express another side of myself through modelling that makes me passionate to work harder and to love myself unconditionally. Thank you for reading this paragraph and have a lovely day!

Would you like to complete our full Editorial interview or skip straight to uploading your photos? (12 more interview questions).
Yes

Our readers would love to get to know you more Michelle. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?

I am dedicated to my studies by currently holding an overall 3.73GPA at San Diego State University. I want to not only be a model, but a role model to inspire others to chase their dreams and stay educated in whatever passion they have. Also, I want to teach others to love themselves because I was at a point where I didn't love myself due to my dark skin. Just recently, posting on it helps me to accept myself and see my beauty through pictures.

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

People told me that I was pretty, but I just didn't see it when I looked in the mirror. So, I tried out modelling and began to enjoy it then I garnered an aspiration to use modelling as a platform to inspire others! 

Who is your inspiration in life Michelle? How do you keep inspired?

Michelle Obama and Rihanna are both strong women who believe in education! Ms Obama reminds me to stay fit and educated and Rihanna motivates me to be bold and independent with a sense of fashion of course!

We all make mistakes Michelle, 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 had to remember a commercial script, but I did not remember it. I do not like to disappoint people so I felt really bad. However, every mistake in my eyes is a lesson, so I later memorized it by heart and gave my best performance.

Michelle, 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 a true believer in planning, so I keep my planner to organize my days. I would prioritize my clients in order of importance.

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

My strategy is to carefully plan whoever I meet and to be very professional about showing up on time and giving excellent service. 

Michelle, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
I work at Victoria's Secret, so this is my daily task to upscale and persuades customers to buy more bras or underwear! I do this by talking about all the benefits of buying two bras for $49.99 because the sale will end soon and each bra is usually 43.50 each!

Michelle, 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?
My proudest professional accomplishment is being part of Barbizon modelling who trained me and made me interested in modelling.

Michelle, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
My creativity stems from the clothes I get to wear to express myself. It's exciting to me because it allows me to differentiate myself from others to have my own identity.

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

Love yourself because it allows you to be bold, confident, and inspiring.

Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state what type of collaboration you are looking for?
I am looking for photo shoots and runways. I am also willing to explore other avenues too!

Now for the best part Michelle! Please upload 5-10 photos so we can get to see your work.
