Interview: Model Anna-Lena Meyer (Germany)
Can you tell us a little about you?
I´m a twenty eight years old german model and live with my two cats near Frankfurt am Main. I started modeling a little over seven years ago.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
I don´t think I would change anything about myself, because I think that someone can like me with all my imperfactions and it´s better to feel good about myself.
How did you start modelling?
Like I said in the beginning, I started modeling a little over seven years ago through a friend of mine. At first as a hobby and later on as a parttime job. It grew bigger over the years and allowed me to visit other countries and meet interesting people. It´s a tough buisness and you must invest a lot of time to get jobs and expand your portfolio.
What do you think of the work as a model?
It can be bit superficial at times, but it is also very creative work.You can slip into many different roles.
What is your beauty regimen?
Maybe I´m not a prime example of a healthy lifestyle. I can finish a whole bag of candy in one evening, but I ride my bicycle to work and walk up three flights of stairs several times a
day to get from work to my apartment.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
I try to put my whole heart into everything I do and to also do my best at every job. I´m reliable and I do nothing what I don´t want to do. I think it´s important that you have fun at work and don´t just pretant like you do.
What are your plans for the future?
I don´t realy have any big plans for the future yet, but I hope that I can work as a model a little longer.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
I don't really have a single favourite experience, it's a little bit of everything: Different and new Locations, traveling to cities in Germany and abroad for workshops and shootings, and of course the many creative minds that I get to meet and develop friendships with.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modelling?
There is a lot of competition in this industry. Be confident, natural and stay positive.
What do you think of the magazine?
I didn´t know the magazine before, but I´m happy to be a part of it and I really like the opportunity to get to know more models and photographers.
