Interview: Model Alex Yun (Belarus)
Can you tell us a little about you?
My name is Alex. I was born in Belarus but have a mixed heritage of Russian and Korean. This is reflected in how I look and represent the cultures I very much enjoy. I would say I’m a creature with a mind of my own and a wish to present an artistic vision of it to the world.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
I don't think I can find something that I would want to change right now.
How did you start modelling?
I started modeling many years back when one of my friends suggested trying to take some pictures. Later on, we created my first portfolio on ModelMayhem. I have my new account there started not long time back: MM# 4573843.
What do you think of the work as a model?
Working as a model is something that I enjoy a lot. Usually, I'm taking photoshoots very seriously and trying to look my best. I think communication and a certain level of empathy with the photographer are vital for achieving the best results.
What is your beauty regimen?
I appreciate quality sleeping. There is nothing that can make me look better than consistent, long sleep. I like to wake up as early as possible. Somewhere between 5 and 7 a.m. is the best for me. Exercising few times a week, extra stretching here and there. I can spend hours just walking in Nature since that's what gives me energy.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
I think I am good at being honest, not judging, understanding, and accepting others' weaknesses.
What are your plans for the future?
Future has a connection with everything I do today. Let's say, in 10 years would love to see me as a model and successful artist. I started painting not long time ago, but I enjoy it a lot and can see many potentials in this field. You can check my artwork on my website: www.alex-yun.com.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
I would love to mention plenty of moments since I am trying to enjoy my life as much as I can. However, the brightest of them might be too personal and related to those I love.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modelling?
My advice will be as follows:
Be yourself, and don't try to be like someone else. Stay unique as you are.
Believe that everything is possible, regardless of what people around you might say.
What do you think of the magazine?
I think the magazine has diverse content that is highly beneficial for viewers. Great inspirational platform indeed.
