Interview: Model Kamila Fornalik (Poland)

Can you tell us a little about you?

Sure, so I started modeling 9 years ago. I was in Japan for 2 months when I was 15. I hardly knew English then! But you know, as far as I remember, it wasn't a big problem for me, probably because I had 2 Polish women in my apartment plus a few girls from my home agency (D'vision) in the Town. Before modeling, I was into athletics, especially running (sprint) and long jumping, which I loved but had to choose between modeling and sports. It was a really intense time, I trained regularly for about 3 years. It showed me how much I love sport, how much I need it, so I'm still doing that but in my way. I run, but now long-distance is a meditation for me. I also started yoga, after all, I always wanted to do yoga, but I didn't know how to properly control my body and mind (I'm Aries - fire) Consequently, it was always boring for me. But since I started working full-time + college, yoga has proved to be irreplaceable. Following this path, it is worth mentioning that I am a fan of healthy food. I can cook for 12 hours, but I love baking cakes (sugar-free of course ). I'm a little bit crazy about plants, and for now, I have more than 100. Fortunately, my cat doesn't eat them or even notice them, so everyone has peace of mind.

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

I would change my biological clock and sleep 7 hours instead of 8-9. It's way too long!

How did you start modeling?

Quite simply, because of the internet. When I was 13 I went to 'shoot' with my friends from school. One of them put those pictures on the internet, and around half of year Karolina - (she scouted me), took my number from one of the girls and called me. After a few days she came with a contract to my hometown which is Wroclaw, and that's the story.

What do you think of the work as a model?

I think it's a unique, beautiful job, but also heavy. To be a model, and to "survive '' in this fashion world u must be strong and patient. Because mostly u hear "no", and always there is a problem with something. But there's a lot of amazing moments and special, really inspiring people. The whole thing which is traveling, meeting new people, starting to know yourself and all this gives us many opportunities - in every element of life. You just have to want to see it, how many perspectives you have, and try to use them right now. But like I said you have to be strong and patient. I'm talking about opportunities because modeling is finished at some age. But you still have a brain so you can use your experience from this time. And after you can use a lot of that time it another job. And it doesn't matter is it connected with the fashion world or not.

What is your beauty regimen?

I don't really have one. I tried with a diet especially but it wasn't good for me. But I'm a vegetarian and I'm eating mostly raw vegetables and fruits, just because it tastes the best for me. I like running so I think this is also important for my "beauty". And my "ritual" is rose water + raspberry seed oil every night.

What are your personal qualities that distinguish you from others?

That I am positive like super positive almost all the time. Most of the things are funny for me so I'm always smiling. Also, I love people. I can't live without them! And I can talk all the time with anyone and everywhere.

What are your plans for the future?

Right now I'm doing a master's degree in advertising, and also I'm working at a creative agency and I think this is good for me.

What are some of your favorite experiences so far?

Every single trip is different, the same with jobs, all of them are unique. And it's really hard to choose some best moments. But I think one of my favorite moments was my last trip to Milan (January, February 2020). There was a flatmate from Lithuania. Her name is Viktorija and she was the best flatmate I ever had. We are soulmates. Ofc we have contact and miss each other very much. And there is another topic, about the whole modeling - I think it gives me a lot of confidence, and it showed me (because of photographers, stylists, etc.) that I have to work hard, sometimes work for free for almost any job, just to know more, and see more.

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

First, be patient! Don't listen to everyone I mean bookers, clients, and also people around you - it's sad but they are usually jealous. Choose the best one who really loves and believes in you because.

What do you think of the magazine?

I think that it's awesome that you give opportunities to people to say something. And they can share their minds with everyone.
