Interview: Model Dorcas Kasadi (Belgium)

15 Feb 2018

Can you tell us a little bit about you?

My name is Dorcas Kasadi. I am a student in Human Resources and a model. For fun, I also do some acting.

 

If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?

Totally nothing – kidding! In fact, I learned to live with my shortcomings and I remain eager to learn and extend my limits.

 

How did you start modelling?

I was walking down a street when somebody approached me and asked me whether I’d like to participate in a casting for a fashion show.  I was selected and had a great, first experience on the catwalk.

 

What do you think of the work as a model?

I’m pretty fond of the fact that you can evolve so much.  Although I already learned a lot, I remain eager to reach my full potential. I became very comfortable with the audience when I’m on the catwalk, but I equally like the concentration and intimacy of the photo studio.

 

What’s your beauty regimen?

Nothing too weird, but living an active live with enough movement, healthy and tasty food. But it’s also a matter of mind and body: I get a lot of energy from meeting and exchanging with new people, which in turn drives me to fully give myself when modelling.

 

What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?

My androgynous looks and my height (180cm). Photographers that worked with me add to that my ease when posing, and the natural elegance and pace of my movements when walking.

 

What are your plans for the future?

I want to finish my studies, after which I want to pursue a professional modelling career. After that I aspire to start my own business.

 

What are some of your favourite experiences so far?

Doing showroom modelling for The Kooples in Paris was a great experience, and also the shooting of an add for J.P. Chenet, the big French wine company. But I equally enjoyed the crowd and atmosphere of catwalking in Amsterdam and Rotterdam.

 

Do you have any advice for those who want to start modelling?

Bring a lot of courage and patience to the party, for modelling is intense and you never know what opportunities you’ll get.

 

What do you think of Modellenland?

A very stylish and creative magazine, with stunning photography and surprising blogs full of practical advice and background knowledge. Keep on the good work!
