Interview: Model Ghazal Gill (San Francisco)
Can you tell us a little about you?
I’m 21 year old student who is in love with life! I have been modeling independently for almost a decade. I also love competing in beauty pageants and currently hold the title of Rumi Miss World 2017.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
I dont think I would change anything at all. As I grow older I fall more in love with who I am on the inside and out more and more.
How did you start modeling?
I was discovered by a photographer when I was 13 who ended up shooting a portfolio for me and I fell in love with modeling ever since!
What do you think of the work as a model?
It defnietely has it challenges but modeling is my passion. Being able to make a living doing what I love is truly a gift. I consider myself very lucky! One does need to have thick skin in this industry, you’ve got to realize some people are going to love your look, others not so much. The important thing is to not lose yourself, your values, or ever doubt your self confidence.
What is your beauty regimen?
Water, water, and more water! I drink at least a gallon of water a day, it helps keep my skin healthy and my belly flat as well. For skincare I like to make alot of my own masks, peels, and creams from herbal products. I try to avoid using artfical chemicals and stick to natural, hollistic health and beauty.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
I am extremely optimistic and passionate, I don’t just view the glass as half full I view it as refillable. Where there is a will there is a way and I always find a way to make my dreams a reality.
What are your plans for the future?
I plan on modeling for the remainder of my life, once I’ve outgrown fashion I’ll stick to lifestyle and commerical! I just love my job too much to ever quit. I also plan on acting and am currently looking into talent agencies.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
Definetely traveling! I love to travel to new countries and experience new cultures and truly see this beautiful world we live in. Recently I was able to shoot for an amazing eyewear company at a stunning location in Turkey and it was certainly one of my favorite places I’ve been. I also am a huge adernanline junkie! Jet skis, cliff diving, sky diving, bungee jumping anything with adenture you name it, I’m there.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
Shoot for the stars! If you want to become a model, dedicate yourself to it. Study other models, take care of your health and beauty, research photographers and start building your portfoilo. Nothing in this world comes easy and if your dedicated and work for it consistently you will get results!
What do you think of the magazine?
I absoloutley love this magazine! It’s such an honor to be the cover of an incredible magazine full of such talent.
