Hello my name is Teal Butler. I am 23 years old. I am happily married. I have been modeling for 2 years. I am currently working on my degree in liberal arts. I don't only model I also cosplay. I've been cosplaying for about year now. I do charity events mostly.
Our readers would love to get to know you more Teal. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?
What is unique about me is that I don't only model but I am a cosplayer as well. I love to dress up as a Disney princess or video game character. I love watching kids faces light up seeing me as Pocahontas or Psylocke.
Teal, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
My passion is modeling and video games. I love the excitement and enjoyment I get from playing a video games or getting glammed up for a shoot. I started modeling when a friend of mine needed a model to practice her makeup skills. She sent the photos to a makeup school in New York and got accepted in. When I saw the final product I knew that this was something I wanted to pursue.
Who is your inspiration in life Teal? How do you keep inspired?
The person who inspires me is my family as a whole. They will go out there way to help anyone. They inspire me to give what I can to help anyone in need. To always be compassionate and understanding.
We all make mistakes Teal, 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.
I was apart of a modeling group where majority of the models were runway models. I didn't feel like I could compete with them because I didn't do runway at the time. I just left without saying a word. Now I would have stepped up and ask how to be a better runway model.
Teal ,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?
I start with talking to everyone equally rarely have my phone out and thank everyone there.
Please tell us Teal, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
I had to talk to step up and be the stylist and makeup artist because they where both late. I made the best out the situation and realized sometimes everything doesn't go as planned.
Teal, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
I think I have a very joyous and inviting personality. I start with asking to see there work and asking what I could do to do better. I know you have to listen and take advice before trying to show someone your work.
Teal 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 to everyone. What is it and why?
When I was first published in Women Power. I was so happy I have the magazine on my coffee table so everyone can see.
Teal, 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 did my first promotional video for Project Nova. The video was sporadic and it really got me to embrace a whole new level of creativity. I loved it so much to do something so different.
What advice would you give to the people who wants to be successful as a Model?
Always be willing to take advice and stay true to yourself.
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 want to collaborate with creative like minded people. I know I have a unique look that I can show other models you don't need to look a certain way to be successful.
