We all make mistakes Niajhi, 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.
There was a time where I had an appointment in the city at 9:00 am I left home around 8:15 am to catch the train as I normally do. Once I arrived, I was notified that the train was running behind. When the train arrived, it was around 8:55 am. Unfortunately; I didn't make it to the meeting on time, and as a result, I was dropped from the project. Now that I am more aware of what I should have done if I am in this situation again. 

Niajhi  , 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?

As a model, I go about prioritizing my client's needs by compiling a detailed schedule at the beginning of each work week. So that I can sufficiently and complete every task, I'm assigned. 

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

There was this particular time where I was assigned to shoot in 100+ weather. To meet all top priorities set, I had to make sure that I was eating healthy and drinking lots of water, to sufficiently take on this project. It is very important to strategically and mentally prepare for all shoots. So the work your delivering will be your best work!

Niajhi, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
There's this time where all of the individuals in my workplace had come to a point where the majority of them were ready to leave. I was able to successfully persuade my colleagues to stay longer. In hopes of better beneficial rewards. I believe due to my honest and trust worthy character they decided to stay and reap all the benefits that were offered. 

Niajhi, 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 moment as a Model would have to be when I was selected to be apart of a fashion show. While modelling garments for some high-end designers. 

Niajhi, 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 was assigned to create my own shoot. The exciting part was enjoying that had full control over the project. However, the difficult part was trying to decide what creative path I was going to choose.

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

Some advice I would give to individuals who would like to become a successful model. Would be to eat and live a healthy life. While always living in constant evolution and working hard while dedicating yourself fully to any task given.
