State / Region
I am 20. I was born in Turin, where I am living. I am a sunny and sensible person; I am also very determined to achieve my goals. I am a model. I love fashion, art and creativity. I love posing and walking in fashion shows. I took part as a model at some essential fashion shows in Turin and Rome, and I raised in Paris for a crucial haute-couture atelier. I also took part at an Italian Mediaset TV programme. At the same time, I am attending an actor school in Milan, to be more sure of me and to learn to act.
I am studying law at the University of Turin. I am attending the second year. I like my school, and I think that study is essential to become someone and live better.
My dream is to become a famous model and actress.
I hope you can help me!
Our readers would love to get to know you more Miryam. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you, your brand or the services you offer?
I am coeliac from birth. I can be a testimonial for coeliac and other people suffering for other types of intolerance that they can be tall and strong like me, that they can go everywhere and do everything (to be quite careful). I travelled all over the world without any problems.
I love to travel and discover new places and cultures.
I love the cat; the black cat is my favourite.
I keep myself in shape; I like running and playing volleyball.
When I am free, I like going out with my friend and reading thriller.
Miryam, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Young Model?
My passions are fashion and art. I love Italian fashion style. I fell in, and I love Italy. Italian food and Italian wine are the best! I am lucky because I live in Italy, and living in Italy is like living in the story.
I aspire to improve myself.
My dream is to become a famous model and actress.
I started as a model like this: a photographer found out my pics on Facebook and contacted me for shooting. From that time I understood that that working as a model makes me feel happy, complete and realised. So I decided to continue that way.
Who is your inspiration in life Miryam? How do you stay inspired as Young Model?
My inspiration as a woman is Marilyn Monroe. I think she is a beautiful woman. A beauty without age, very sexy and always happy. Not just a girl but an icon of prosperity, community, health and shine. A woman loved not only by men but also by women. My inspiration as the model is Gisele Bündchen.
I think she is beautiful and at the same time, she represents a strong and independent woman. When she goes out on the catwalk, she has unmistakable self- confidence and a haughty bearing.
We all make mistakes Miryam; we wish we could take back. What was the error you made in the past that you want to you can bring back?
Fortunately, I am young, so I didn't make particular mistakes. Anyway, I had sombre moments when I have trust in some "talent scouts". They didn't help me at all. They wanted just my money. So I wasted without growing in my professional way.
Miryam, How do you describe yourself regarding working with clients?
I am a very determined girl who makes her best in his work. Working as a model makes me feel good, for me is an emotion each time. I'm available to work as a model and an advertising campaign. I am willing to move and have a good knowledge of English.
Please tell us Miryam, how do you prioritise work, social life, friends, and family?
The priority number one is me, my health, my happiness and my work. So the work is first one for me because I have to build my future and my independence. Despite that, I try to don't neglect my family and my friends. They anyway support me in all my choices.
Miryam, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
I can remember a fashion show during which I persuaded a stylist and his equipment to change the model's dresses before going out on the catwalk. In my opinion, some dresses fitted very well different models.
Miryam, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Young Model.
My proudest professional accomplishment was last year when I was chosen for working as a model in a significant Italian annual fashion show, named Paratissima 2017. In that event, I met a famous stylist: Antonio Vietri. He creates beautiful golden shoes; in fact, he is called "the golden shoemaker". He wanted me as a model for showing his golden shoes in his next events.
Miryam, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or challenging about it?
I suppose I was creative at that time when I made the makeup for me, and I helped other models to make them. We were at the fashion show of a stylist who makes very colored, and particular dresses and the makeup stylist couldn't come for a personal problem. I used a lot of colours in different nuances. It was fun and exciting, but at the same time very complicated because we wanted to make a perfect mix of dresses, makeup and models personalities.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Young Model?*
I don't know if I can advise another young model because I am one of them. I could say that is very important to take out personality and dare every time.
