Interview: Model Giulia Facchinetti (Italy)

Can you tell us a little about you?

I’m Giulia, I’m 21 years old, I’m an Italian girl and I live in Trieste (a city in the north of Italy). I’m a university student and I’m close to graduating in Literature, Communication and Entertainment. I define myself as a young woman full of ambitions and desire to have independence, happiness and satisfaction in achieving all her goals. I’m addicted to travel and art, if you come on "vacation" with me get ready to visit and spend hours in museums and monuments. I think I’m a person with a closed character but very open-minded, I’m very selective about friendships and people around me. My mottos are "Live and let live" and "Be the best version of yourself".

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

I think I would change my nose, I hate it! then I would like to be more sure of myself and my abilities, but I am working on it.

How did you start modelling?

I started modeling purely by chance. My first ever photo shoot was when I was 16, I was accompanied by my family and I immediately felt at ease. After finishing high school I was contacted by a photographer from Trieste to do a photo shoot in the nature and in the following months I started to propose myself in online groups for photographers and models to look for more collaborations. It all happened spontaneously, I have been posing for 3 years and I had really good experiences in the field (albeit in a limited way because I don’t have the physical characteristics to reach higher peaks).

What do you think of the work as a model?

I think it's a very hard job, in these 3 years I've only had a taste of what it means to be a model, but I think it's a great opportunity to get involved and work on yourself. It tests you on many aspects, especially your flexibility and professionalism, it takes a lot of intelligence and attention (even if many people don’t believe it and underestimate this profession). If taken seriously, this job gives a lot of satisfaction, not to mention what you can learn by traveling and comparing yourself with other models and photographers you work with. As in every field and work, it has its difficulties and drawbacks. I have seen so many girls ruin their image and reputation (by ridiculing themselves) to achieve unhealthy goals or to have been deceived by unprofessional people in the industry who took advantage of them by promising work and success. As I said, you have to keep your feet on the ground and be very careful, not everyone is suitable to do this job, but there will always be someone ready to take advantage and make false promises about it.

What is your beauty regimen?

My beauty regime doesn’t require too much effort, I don’t follow strict diets, but I eat healthy and exercise day by day to feel at my best and stay in shape. I don’t wear too much makeup, a BB cream and some mascara are enough, I assure you (the skin breathes and thanks). At least twice a month I treat myself to a mask and a cleaning from the crap that accumulate in the T zone. Last but not least, my hair has been free from straighteners and dyes for almost 3 years! unless there is a good hairdresser to touch it, I dare not fry it. I can assure you that cutting the tips 3 times a year and using the protections before drying them (and a sprayed of vitamins always on the tips) will make them wonderful in a short time. I’m convinced that if you take constant care of yourself day by day, you are definitely better off and in the best shape ever (whether you are a model or not).

What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?

It is a complicated question, the thing that I’m most told by the people who are by my side every day is that I’m a lot determined in achieving my goals accompanied by a strong resentment towards those who try to undermine my path. One thing I’m sure of is that I am very, very, very sensitive (sometimes too much).

What are your plans for the future?

My plan for the future is to be happy. I want to see a happy me who has achieved her goals after so many sacrifices. I want to see a me that is more and more mature and with new challenges and ambitions collected over the years. My plans for the future are basically about a lot of satisfaction and well-being.

What are some of your favorite experiences so far?

One experience that made me grow up so much was living in Brighton for a month. Travelling and working in a country far from home can make you discover skills that you didn't even think you had! that city and that experience in particular has stuck in my head and heart (I hope to return there soon and I recommend anyone to visit that magical place). Regarding photography I can assure that having posed for several photographers, workshops and photo shoots for advertising purposes has increased my self-esteem and the ability to be less shy.

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

Don't be in a hurry to jump into this world, if it has to happen and you have what it takes to work, it will happen. Find some serious people to accompany you on this path and listen to them, inform yourself as much as you can and don't do anything rash or stupid thinking that any kind of shortcut will help you to reach your goal first (because most likely it will be what will stop you forever). Don't take anything personal, it's a world made of precise standards, don't feel wrong or ugly if some casting goes wrong, it's not your fault. There will always be people who will not take you seriously or try to take you down, the important thing is to keep your head held high and work seriously (especially on yourself). Don’t take unhealthy paths and don’t distort your physique and personality, work in a healthy way and be the best version of yourself.

What do you think of the magazine?

I think it's a very interesting magazine because it covers many topics and gives a lot of space to many figures to express themselves and talk about their career and path. You can learn a lot and above all you can see very well executed shots and works, continue like that and congratulations!
