Yes, my life has changed since I started modeling. It requires a lot of organization to combine my medical studies with my career in modeling. Also, In terms of self-confidence that has changed. When you are classified in the status of « model », it can do good to the ego haha ; but, sometimes, the modeling profession is rough! One must remain resilient when you are refused in some castings… But there are the messages of our Instagram followers who are there to cheer up haha, thank you to them! It makes you feel better. But, of course, I have had great encounters in the modeling industry too. Especially, in terms of being exposed to so much artistry and the human side of the business. As a model, we meet a lot of people quickly. However, my experiences have allowed me to loosen up and show more of myself ! My new-found confidence permeates not only in my relationship to industry players but, also, in everyday life. And, with the jobs abroad, it has allowed me to progress a lot in English. Otherwise, I went back to sport recently and I think modeling was part of the motivation for it haha. 5°/ Is there a model you really like right now ? The sexy Jhonattan Burjack. 6°/How would you describe Vanity Teen in three words ? For me, Vanity Teen is masculine, glamour and sexy.
