The fact that I love telling stories makes want to be in character for every shoot just like an actress. I think that the dance training has given me grace and the ability to give unique poses. Only a few people know that I draw (female-fantasy inspired drawing). Sometimes I use my self as a model for my drawings. Because of this, I believe I have a good taste in regards to what looks good on me and what not. Lastly, my imagination is endless!
Selene, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
I love telling stories. Everything has started from this. And I prefer to show the story not to write it. Everything I do is related to this passion.
Who is your inspiration in life Selene? How do you keep inspired?
I am inspired a lot by nature, music and myths.
We all make mistakes Selene; 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.
I wish I have been braver to tell what I have in mind.
Selene, 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 prioritising your clients’ needs?
I am very responsible as a person and very passionate. If I agree to collaborate with a client and be part of their project, this will be my priority. I am very good at time managing, very considerate of others time and I never overbook. I prefer to book less (and paid less) that be overbooked and let someone unsatisfied.
Please tell us, Selene, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
I started as a model in my home country in Greece, and I managed to work a lot because of my dedication, hard work, creativity....
Selene, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
As a PhD student at UofT, I very often have to explain to other people why I have approached my project in a very certain way and not to a different one. It is about being prepared and having diplomacy
Selene, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
My proudest professional accomplishment is the fact that I will soon have a PhD in Biochemistry!
Selene, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
As a PhD student in biochemistry, I have to be creative to overcome problems that come up all the time
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
Being a free spirit does not mean to be irresponsible. Try to respect others people time, communicate your ideas, dive into each project.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state what type of collaboration you are looking for?
I would love to model with fashion talents and brands as a model for editorials, catalogues, shows
