Alright, now for the interview! Firstly Rae, how would you best describe yourself?

Rae. Tell us ABOUT yourself. 
This section will be used for the listing on our website. Please see sample below. You can skip this.
I'm a science major, and my dream is to become a doctor. Besides from that my passion is art, I pursued it for some time in college but found it to be a dead end for me. I believe the body is a magnificent piece of artwork crafted by our mother's before us. And why not show off that art work? 
I appreciate ever size, shape and colour; they are all beautiful. 
And after losing around 100 pounds in the space of a year I wanted to love my new body, I struggled to fall in love with a body I felt wasn't mine. And modelling has helped me do that, showing me how beautiful I can be.
Making me love my curves, my big thighs and small waist. Modelling is now a passion of mine, along with makeup and hair styling it's all brought together on my Instagram. 

Our readers would love to get to know you more Rae. Tell us about yourself, why you are passionate about what you do, and your journey so far.
I am more than passionate about this art form... A picture can say a thousand words, channel emotions, thoughts, energy. A picture can capture that single second of serenity where everything comes together. Don't you like that's lovely? I do.

Keep interviewing me!

What are your goals and how do you see yourself progressing in the field Rae?
My goals, for now, are simple, to inspire others and to continue to better my makeup skills.
I suppose progressing on social media to reach further and inspire others isn't too big of a goal. 

How do you communicate with people Rae? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements?
I'm extremely open. Of course, there is lines butt I like to hear what they have in their mind's eye. I love communication with people I also believe I'm quite patient, most of the time anyway. 

If you had to do it over again, what would you change Rae?
I wouldn't change anything, everything that's ever happened has lent me here. If I went back and changed anything, who knows what could happen.

Who is your hero Rae, and how have they helped you get to where you are?
I don't think any one person is my hero. My parents play a huge part in who I am today especially my mum. But if anything has been my shining light in the darkness it must be literature. 

How important are creative education courses Rae? Have you taken any, and did you find them useful?
We don't have them in England I don't believe. 

Do you have any tips for someone who is just starting out in the industry?
Yes. Don't follow in anyone else's foot steps, don't impersonate anyone and no not change yourself for anyone. You are perfect. And when you find the right crowd they will see it too. 

Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?
I am definitely interested in participating in photo shoots with new photographers and experienced ones and would love to collaborate with models and photographers in the North West of England. If interested, please contact me by email; rachaelleightaylorallen@gmail.com 

Please add any photo credits for the photos you uploaded so that everybody can get recognised.
