Interview: Model Mara Farsetti (Italy)
Can you tell us a little about you?
I’m Mara, an italian girl of 24. I was born and raised in Rome with my loving family and wonderful friends. Actually, I’m in my 5th year of university of medicine, and I like combining study life with modeling.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
First of all, I would increase my awareness and the ability to appreciate myself by understanding everything of me, strengths and weaknesses.
Furthermore, I would reduce the fear of facing situations that require responsibility, I would like to feel up to everything.
Surely they are two interdependent points, but they are the most essential skills for me.
I’m quiet satisfied with my person, but I think they are the key to happiness and I would like to improve these two aspects.
How did you start modeling?
I just started at eighteen with a friend just for fun, but I've been doing it more consciously for a year.
What do you think of the work as a model?
It’s fantastic. I worship everything that’s beautiful: statues, ancient buildings, picturesque paintings and certainly photography, especially the unusual one. I consider it an art form, it allows you to express yourself in every facet you want, without words. The relationship created between photographer and model, if both motivated, is magical and can produce something exceptional. Moreover, in most cases is pretty funny!
What is your beauty regimen?
I don't have a real beauty regime, even if I like to take care of myself especially when I'm nervous or sad, it helps me relax and not think about anything.
For various reasons my house is full of creams, so it's not difficult for me to remember to hydrate myself.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
Oh well, in most cases my thinking is upstream, I like to see things from other points of view. I'm curious. And luckily (or unlikely) I have an extreme empathy.
What are your plans for the future?
I hope to finish my studies and become a doctor, but always having time for me.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
When I have free time, I see with my friends or my boyfriend, rather than individual activities.
But it also happens that I am passionate about something and dedicate so much of my time to it, as a specific film genre, to paint and so on.
Moreover, I love traveling (as everyone, I think) both in Italy and abroad.
In particular I like naturalistic destinations, but also destinations full of art and history, especially of the Renaissance and Baroque.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
It may seem like a banal sentence, but I really think modeling is an experience that everyone should try, boys and girls, particularly if they are young. This because it gives you greater awareness of your body, of your movements and it increases self-esteem.
Many young people today are unsure of their appearance, but photography lights not only the perfect faces and perfect bodies, on the contrary, it seeks particularity.
What do you think of the magazine?
I love it, thank you so much for thinking of me for this interview!
I wish you good luck for the future of the magazine ♡
