Exclusive Interview:


1. How was the beginning of your journey as an online influencer, and how did it eventually become a platform for you to enter the modeling career?


The start of my journey as an online influencer was marked by a connection to online platforms from the days of blogs. Initially, I saw it as a fun way to connect with friends. However, as brands began to collaborate and photographers reached out for photoshoots, I found myself increasingly immersed in the world of fashion.

2. What were the key skills and lessons you learned during your time as a digital influencer that proved valuable in your modeling career?


During my time as a digital influencer, I learned that in the online world, we tend to showcase our best shape and version, but this shouldn't carry over to our life behind the cameras. Perfection shouldn't be a physical or emotional burden.


3. The fashion industry can be demanding and competitive. How did you manage to face the challenges and stand out as a model?


Facing the challenges of the demanding and competitive fashion industry requires discipline and consistency. I believe that what sets us apart is our inner light, especially in an industry filled with beautiful and prepared individuals.

4. How have social media and your online presence impacted your modeling career? Do you think it brought more opportunities or did it also come with some difficulties?


My online presence and social media have had a positive impact on my modeling career, opening doors to opportunities that I wouldn't have reached otherwise. However, I've also faced judgments from people who believe we're only there because of social media. Dealing with this requires confidence in one's own talent.


5. Many young aspiring models wish to pursue the influencer career path to gain recognition. What are your tips for those looking to embark on this same journey?


For young aspiring models looking to pursue the influencer career path, it's important to remember that social media should be genuinely enjoyed and used to share everyday moments and thoughts, rather than just seeking fame or recognition.

6. Throughout your modeling journey, what have been the most rewarding and significant moments you've experienced?


Throughout my modeling journey, every moment has been rewarding, from positive feedback from collaborators to landing international campaigns. A significant moment was securing my first contract for a beachwear campaign, which gave me a sense of being on the right path.


7. Over time, you must have worked with various brands and photographers. Is there any project or collaboration that you consider a significant milestone in your career as a model and influencer?


Among the different brands and photographers I've worked with, the most significant milestone in my career was my first runway show at Milan Fashion Week. It was an unforgettable and inspiring experience.
