Interview: Model Angélica Silvestre (United States)


Can you tell us a little about you?

My name is Angélica, I was born in Puerto Rico and was raised in Atlanta, GA for the majority of my life. I spent part of my childhood living in San Pedro de Macorís, Dominican Republic, my mother’s country, which I consider my home. It was a very humbling experience but it made me who I am today. My life wasn’t easy growing up but I was always thankful for the little things and always had a positive outlook on life. Growing up, I was the girl that was teased for always wearing the same shirt, the girl that only owned two pairs of socks and was grateful if I got a box of colored pencils for my birthday because it’s all we could afford. I may have had nothing but I was a girl full of dreams and to me that was everything.


If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?

How I perceive myself. I can be hard on myself at times. Sometimes we are our own worst critics and our worst enemies. Self-love is very important and I think it’s something a lot of us struggle with. I’m not perfect but I work on myself a little each day. Self-love is key. It all starts from within.


How did you start modelling?

I was always drawn to the camera from a very young age. I used to pass time by putting on fashion shows as a kid. It was an escape for me and I had fun doing it. As I got older I knew it was something that I wanted to pursue. I started doing photography on my own as a hobby and eventually started networking, meeting other creatives. I was first published and discovered in Atlanta 13 years ago. I worked as a brand ambassador and promo model before I took on modeling full-time. I’ve worked on many projects, campaigns and events throughout the years. I’ve worked with some talented photographers and have had the honor of being multi published. I’m so grateful for all amazing people I’ve met along the way and all the experiences, as they have helped me grow in many ways.


What do you think of the work as a model?

It’s a great outlet to channel your energy and emotions and create amazing imagery. It’s art and the ultimate form of expression. It’s freedom, sophistication, it’s beauty —It can be anything. You are not just taking a picture, you are telling a story. You are the brush that is painting on the canvas.


What is your beauty regimen?

I make sure to always stay hydrated. Water is life. Believe it or not, I’m not a huge fan of make up, I wear little to none and religiously moisturize every day. I’m very selective with products I use on my skin, since I’m highly sensitive. I love staying active, whether it’s working out, going for hikes or a nice bike ride. I follow a pretty clean diet but I have a weakness for cheesecake and dark chocolate. Don’t judge me.


What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?

I’m a very driven individual, I love a challenge and not afraid to take one on. Give me the colors and I’ll paint you a picture. I like to make sure that every shoot is not just a shoot, but an experience. I’m very detail-oriented, I don’t mind taking creative control of a shoot, if permitted. I not only enjoy being in front of the camera but editing is one of my skills. I love being part of the creative process and learning everything there is to lighting and photography.


What are your plans for the future?

I’m a woman of all trades. I have many interests outside of modeling. I see myself with a thriving business doing one of the many things that I love. Hopefully marriage is in my future. Most importantly, my goal is to ensure that my kids are on the right path and accomplishing their goals. Their happiness is everything to me. My kids are my strength.


What are some of your favorite experiences so far?

I’ve experienced so much in the world of modeling, I’ve shot every genre I can think of. That’s something that I set out to do. It’s been amazing. Just being able to travel and share my love and passion of modeling with other talented individuals has been rewarding.


Do you have any advice for those who want to start modelling?

First, do your research. Don’t be afraid to set boundaries. Don’t do anything you don’t feel comfortable doing. Ask for references. Always read model release forms, know what you are signing up for. If something doesn’t feel right, trust your gut. Those are very important things to remember. When you’re ready to shoot, create art, be free and be your authentic self.


What do you think of the magazine?

I think it’s a great platform for many creative individuals to showcase their talent and experience in the industry. I appreciate Modellenland for this wonderful opportunity!
