I am a student in my last year office and retail. As a student, i work in restaurants to pay for travelling and having fun with my friends. During travelling in Spain last two years, i met the photographer Miguel Anxo. The photo's he takes are magnificent. We put these pictures on Instagram and very soon I had an international contract by Talent Model Management. So now I am working on a career as a model, Crazy !!
Our readers would love to get to know you more Sam. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?
I like to travel and having fun with my friends. I do sport a lot at the gym and swimming for my health. Shopping is also a passion ;-)
Sam, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
Doing every day better than the day before is my quote of life.
Who is your inspiration in life Sam? How do you keep inspired?
My parents and family are my real inspiration in life; they support me in everything I do. I am grateful to be in this family.
We all make mistakes Sam; 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.
At this time, I don't have many experiences in doing something wrong, but when this happens, I think communication is the keyword.
Sam, 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?
Listen carefully to the needs of the clients, communicate and constantly approve.
Please tell us, Sam, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
At this moment I need to work hard on my health and body. Eat healthily, Drink lots of water and fitness four times a week. These are the priorities of every day.
Sam, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
Sam, 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?
The day that my model agency contacts me for the international contract. First, i thought this was a joke ;-)
Sam, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
When I have to make my portfolio, I have to go shopping for many different types of clothing. We needed different spots to shoot the photos. This was a creative period that I liked a lot.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
Just be yourself but keep eyes and ears open for learning. Focus on the top models and learn from them.
