Hi my name is Sandy

I am a photography and commercial model.

I started modeling in 2013. I did runways, photo shoots, and commercials. I thoroughly enjoy it so much. I especially love working with photographers doing real life/person shoots and fashion shoots. I'm always open-minded into trying new things. My goal is to be in the cover magazine as brand ambassador. I hope and work on one day in being a brand ambassador and cover girl. I do believe got all the qualities of a cover girl. Thank you.

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

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

My whole being, my beauty from within and out. There's nobody else who is me or looks like me. 

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

My passion is fashion, beauty, and living we balanced beautiful joyful lifestyle. I enjoy blogging and taking pictures of myself, people and beautiful things. 

I started off as a model by searching for modeling agencies. It's something I've always wanted to do. 

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

My inspiring in life has got to be few of my favorite YouTube's and Tyra Banks. I keep inspired by praying, loving and watching YouTube's and Item. 

We all make mistakes Sandy, 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.
It was actually with my second agency/photographer. I allowed him to touch him in a way that made feel extremely uncomfortable. The way he touched me was very inappropriate. I didn't say anything to him or reacted to it- I was afraid and scared, I just didn't know what to do. I never stopped regretting that, I wish I told him not to touch me that way or rather walk out. As a result, because I avoided him he cut me off his agency and stopped sending me jobs. I just wish I had stood up for myself. Leaving it alone that way made me feel easy and cheap. 

Sandy, 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?

If I'm not sure about something, I do make sure I ask so that I am able to deliver what's needed instead of annoying the clients by acting as though I know what they need when I don't know. 

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

This was in 2014 when I decided to quit my job to do modeling full time. I had carefully thought it out and started applying moody of the things I had researched for becoming a successful model. 

Sandy, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
In 2012 I worked for modeling and promotion agency as a personal assistant and events manager. My CEO was sharing the concept of the next event, by listening to her I persuaded her to switch up a bit and extend the date she had already planned it on. She was hesitating at first, my she finally saw my point. 

Sandy, 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?
It was my second time modeling on the runway. After the grand walk, I got interviewed and I had already got some fans, those ladies came up to me told me I was great and asked to take a picture with me. A few weeks later on my way home a fashion designer came running to me and said hey I saw you on tv, I'd love to work with you. I was so happy because I had no idea the show and interview were broadcasted. 

Sandy, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
For my first fashion show ever. We were running extremely late. Because I'm a professional makeup artist as well. I jumped in to help the other models do their makeup and hair and I actually ended up doing my own as well. 

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

Be patient, consistent and punctual. 

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 to have fashion collaborations and collaborations with cosmetic companies. 

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