Interview: Model Marta (Poland)
Can you tell us a little about you?
Well, I'm 32 yo sarcastic enthusiast of coffee & cigarettes who is crazy bout Salvador's Dali art, and David Bowie music. I'm a bookworm and enthusiast of british sense of humor
working as chef and model by accident ( I know this is extraoridynary compilation, but it's true)
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
My look, my body and face are quite nice genetic mix, so I think that they're are great the way they're and I'm proud of it. If I could change anything in myself I would rather work on my personality, and character. It's as much important as workin on your body, and inner balance is a key to fortunate life I think.
How did you start modelling?
By accident, really! I was about 17 and my mother's friend daugther needed tall and skinny girls to her gratudation fashion show. I've never thought about modeling before, and was pretty sure that this fashion show is one day adventure. Well, It wasn't....Modeling stole my heart and started very important part of my life, my job and also my passion, from almost 15 years.
What do you think of the work as a model?
It's not as easy as people think that it is. You have to be self confident, disciplined and open minded.
You meet a lot of people almost every single day, and have to learn how to cooperate with them, how to be kind and respectful fore everyone. Face and body are important for sure, but attitude and being ready to hard work are important as well.
What is your beauty regimen?
Well actually I don't do anything special. I walk a lot, sometimes practise yoga and care about my diet. Easy natural food it's important to make my body fit and good looking. I don't use so much cosmetics in my daily routine, and rather choose a coffee peeling that ''very expensive and popular'' one from the drugstore.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
My ''Merida'' look for sure. I have about 18 tattoos, pale skin and freckled face.
What are your plans for the future?
Let's face the true. In models reality I'm not young, 32 it's sometimes to much, but I don't care! I'm gonna posing as long as it would be possible, without being sorry for my age.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
One of the most incerdible project was videoclip of Hedone ( alternative rock band from my country) I was walking through the night, through empty streets with cigarette in my hand, plume on my head and I was pretty sure that I'm in another dimension.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modelling?
Work girl! Every single day! Develop your skills, be respectful for the others and belive that you're good enough to concqure the Universe!
What do you think of the magazine?
It's a great opportunity to show your work, and place for every people crazy bout modeling and photography. I'm so glad and proud that I could be a part of it.
