Interview: Model Laura McGuire (USA)
Can you tell us a little about you?
I am married with 3 children and I have been living in the USA for 13 years. I am Lithuanian by heritage. Besides modeling I am very passionate about fitness and healthy lifestyle. Being a certified personal trainer and a group fitness instructor enables me to share my approach of staying fit and give inspiration to others. I am not only preaching I have been practicing it for many years.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
I am comfortable with who I am. I won’t lie that confidence comes with age and understanding of your strengths and weaknesses. It comes with knowing how to laugh at yourself but stand your ground when it is necessary. It is a complicated topic in a sense that you have to accept who you are and make the best out of it. Nobody is perfect and we all know it.
How did you start modeling?
I was modeling on and off since 14 years old. I was discovered by model scouts visiting Lithuania at the time. It is an exciting glamorous industry and once you fall into it you can’t leave it so easily.
What do you think of the work as a model?
Work as a model is very exciting in the sense that it is very diverse. It surely has the glamorous side that most of the people are attracted to. It gives me an exposure to all of the beautiful things that we women love: latest fashion, skincare, make up etc. It also gives me an opportunity of constant make overs depending on the role you are playing during a photo shoot.
What is your beauty regimen?
My beauty regimen is quite basic. There is nothing extravagant or too expensive. I am a believer of regular facials which I do every 2 months. And you certainly have to find the skincare that works for your skin and age. Besides that your body is a reflection of how you live your life.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
I think I am a very positive person. I am focused on things that I am trying to achieve but at the same time I believe in natural course of events, destiny.
What are your plans for the future?
The future is as bright as you want it to be. Family is the center of my universe and having them all healthy and happy is my biggest wish. I build everything around my 3 children and my husband, they are the priority.
Career-wise I would like to grow as a fitness professional, educate and inspire people on healthy lifestyle and fitness. In fashion industry I would like to continue successfully work as a model and proudly embrace different opportunities that come with age.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
My most favorite experiences are associated with traveling and exploring new places.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
It is an exciting industry so try it out if you have an opportunity. But it is not a profession you can rely on all of your life. It comes and goes away so embrace it while it lasts and have fun with it.
What do you think of the magazine?
It is a great online industry magazine. Informational and fun reading.
