Interview: Model Sadja Faili (Netherlands)
Can you tell us a little about you?
I’m Sadja, 30 years old, and I live in Utrecht based in The Netherland. I work as a professional model and actress. I also sing and own a holistic blog.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
I would never change anything, because there’s no real beauty without some slight imperfection.
How did you start modeling?
When I was very little I already loved to do photoshoots. But when I was around 20 I started making money.
What do you think of the work as a model?
I love being a model. You express yourself though the camera and I think this is a beautiful art. If you do commercial modeling you also act for the camera and play a part. This resembles camera-acting and this really changes the modeling experience into being an actress! Because of modeling I also got interested to pursue an acting career.
What is your beauty regimen?
I cleanse my face with a tonic in the evening, and with a cleanser in the morning. After this I use a serum or agan oil and after that I use my day/night cream. Sometimes I also use a eyecream. I also regulary scrub and use fase masks. Besides this I take everyday MSM (food supplement) and biotin to keep a beatiful skin and nice hair. But I also believe that beauty starts from the inside, so I also take care of a proper and healthy diet.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
I am really ambitious and hardworking!
What are your plans for the future?
I really want to do sport modeling for Nike in a TV commercial. That’s on my bucket list.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
I did a big TV commercial for a medicine for the US/Canandian market last year, that was my biggest job so far! But I also have done lots of other fotoshoots or commercials that were a good exeperience. Mostly the ones that were the most creative I liked the most.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
Yes, please never give up even you don’t have the right sizes. My bodytype is petit, and it was not easy to get jobs. But I still succeeded to get my jobs. So never give up and believe in yourself. What also helped me is to work with professional photographers.
What do you think of the magazine? Great initiative!
