Interview: Model Alessandra Martines (Italy)
Can tell us something about you.
Hi, my name is Alessandra, I'm 27, I'm Sicilian and I live in the city of Catania. In life I am a promoter, but in the meantime I work very often as a model. I am a very active, cheerful, sporty person. I love music, dancing, hanging out with friends, I love animals, and I like to train myself to keep fit ...
If you could change something about yourself, what would it be?
As far as I am concerned, I am very critical of myself, so I try to keep myself in good shape by doing physical activity ... normally I would change my too much goodness of heart ...
How did you get into modeling?
This path I took so much for fun in 2009, through a simple national beauty contest, from that day several proposals began to arrive ... at the beginning I made my apprenticeship, that is to study and grow in this field, then I started working on it ...
What do you think of working as a model?
I don't consider myself a model, but I think this work is like so many others and for me it's also a hobby because I like what I do and I like to convey to people through the photos and photo sets I create, what I am and what I represent at that moment in every single shot ...
This field is difficult to follow because first of all it takes creativity, patience in maintaining oneself physically and above all self-confidence ... it's difficult even for people's prejudices, especially in Sicily, (with a very backward and closed mind). .. and then because in this field there are often proposals and unpleasant situations.
What is your beauty regime?
I love sensuality, elegance, refinement, kindness ... My source of inspiration is not just one, but many.
What are your personal skills that distinguish you from others?
As I said before, I am a very sensitive person, in fact I always try to think of others first and then myself, I love helping people.
I'm strong, I don't give up and if I fall I get up better than before ... I'm very active and humble.
And I also stand out because I'm good at cooking, dancing and making artisanal products.
What are your plans for the future?
First of all, succeed as a model, open an activity and then I'd like to create a beautiful family.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
Mmmm ... I have a lot to say, but I only dwell on someone: a memory close to my heart is when I participated in a great Italian film "Il commissario Montalbano" I was a special appearance, along with other girls, the episode is entitled "Il covo di vipere" where I appear through 3 photos. Another great memory was an appearance in an Italian film that in September has to go to the cinema "Tutt'apposto". Another great experience was having done a casting for a famous, famous and important international magazine that at the moment I can't say the name because still my photo shoot has to go out ... If you want to know more about it follow me on my social networks that I link to you under the interview.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
First of all I advise you to start making your own apprenticeship, experiences in such a way as to be prepared for everything for any job ... I also advise you to be absolutely careful with indecent proposals and always have your eyes open.
Last thing I suggest is not to give weight to the prejudices of the people, to always go ahead with head held high and to pursue your dreams with tenacity and courage.
What do you think of the magazine?
I think this magazine is an inspiration for those who look at it ... it makes it possible for any artist to make himself known ... I think it's a beautiful and excellent showcase.
