Interview: Model Patrycja Kajda (Poland)
Can you tell us a little about you?
My name is Patrycja, I live in Czechowice-Dziedzice. I'm 23 years old and I'm a nursing student. Before I've started my studies, I was a medical secretary in the hospital in Bielsko-Biala, and in the meantime I studied as a dental assistant.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
I would change some of my character traits, I would like to be more assertive and hard-working, but also a few things in my appearance, especially the nose and size of the bust.
How did you start modeling?
It was more than one year and half ago, when I've been on the holidays in Egypt with my parents. I've met a photographer there who offered me a session. I was very happy, because I was dreaming of it for a long time, so I agreed. Then after we came back home I've created an account on Maxmodels, and that's how it started.
What do you think of the work as a model?
I think that it's hard, but very satisfying work. In modeling not only the appearance counts, you have to be able to show emotions.
What is your beauty regimen?
Above all, my beauty regime is a healthy diet, physical activity and taking care of hair and skin.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
I went through a lot in my life, serious illness, hate at school, loss of loved ones and many more. All this made me strong and stubborn. I never give up. When I want something, I strive for it with all my strength.
What are your plans for the future?
I want to finish my studies and start working as a nurse. I would like to continue my career as a model and be more and more known. My goal is to work with the best photographers and be on the magazine covers.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
My favorite experience is participation in organized outdoor sessions and photo workshops where I met many new photographers and I spent a very nice and productive time.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
It is not an easy piece of bread and in an era where there are so many people that wants to be a model it's hard to be seen, but my advice is just to be yourself and do what you love, because it gives the greatest satisfaction.
What do you think of the magazine?
I love this magazine. It is full of works and projects at the highest level. Very good job!
