I am sure a lot of us have had embarrassing moments that when we look back to, we’d laugh over and love to share.
So on today’s episode of OT’Chik Moments, we have a glamorous model and creative/art director, Roselyn John, who’s been in the industry for quite sometime. Roselyn’s open mindedness about a lot of issues, that generally are meant to be sensitive, and her determination to make an impact have made her stand out amongst the crowd.
Let’s read all she has to share about her road to success, the challenges she met and how she’s ben able to scale the hurdles.
What motivated you to become a model and how long have you been doing what you do?
Actually, it just started as me taking pictures just to post on Instagram and one time I was approached by an agency who later became the first agency I signed with. So as time went by, I fell in love with the profession. So that’s just it for me. I have been modelling for 3 years now.
Has your interest in modeling in anyway affected your relationship with people?
Yes positively. Because now I got more friends, more exposure and all.
Are you signed to any agency?
No I am not signed to any agency at the moment.
What are your perspectives on nudity in fashion & entertainment?
I believe nudity is supposed to represent Art. The human body is a beautiful structure and exploring it is not a bad idea. It’s just the perspective or the idea behind the creativity that matters, any other ulterior motive should be checked and shoved away.
What challenges did you encounter while pursuing your interests and how have you been able to overcome them?
Ok ehmmm, it took me a while to master the industry, connect with other creatives. I got turned down a lot when it comes to working with them and all. But somehow I was able to leverage on my time with them especially talking to them for the first time, I had to show to them the reason why they should work with me. So I think presentation helped me get this far.
Who is your favorite celebrity model and why?
I don’t really have a favorite😂😂.I think I am my favorite model. I mean I admire the top models and all, they are all great in their own way.
Any embarrassing moments so far in your career? Which was most embarrassing?
Ok I think it was when I got called for a job. After passing the casting stage, we were to go in for fittings and none of the outfits actually stayed on my body, like I was too tiny for them😂😂😂. So I was just given my logistics fee to go back home. This happened in front of the other models and they all looked at me like I had some sort of disease😂😂 I was so embarrassed.
There are lots of persons who look up to and admire your personality, what message do have for them?
My message to them is that: make sure you are working smart not hard. Make sure you choose the right aspect of modelling you fit into (check google for more) and go hard for it. Lastly, keep doing you, someone somewhere is watching.
