Interview: Model Nikla Minolfi (Italy)
Can you tell us a little about you?
Hi everyone! I'm Nikla Minolfi, I'm 28 and I come from a small town in Northern Italy.
I graduated in Law and obtained a master's degree in Economics which led me to teach in a high school last year. Since I was a child, then, I have been committed to the National Association of Former Deportees by developing and exhibiting interventions to raise awareness among young and old about the Second World War and the deportation to the extermination camps.
Always a lover of the art world, I starred in several short films, commercials and music videos. I was very lucky to see up close how an important set works thanks to my participation in famous fictions such as "Questo Nostro Amore 2" and "Fuoriclasse 3" and in the film "La Bella Estate". To continue to grow professionally, I engage in numerous photo sets as a model for important brands such as Qc Terme, Lieger Micro Car, Damigague, The Mall, Cerim e Laines du Nord; I was also elected testimonial of Nodà Moda, Ottica Rosso e Marcos.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
In these past few years I have dedicated myself to the study of various spiritual branches and thanks to the help of my Master and Hypnotherapist Raffaele di Matteo, I have learned to accept and love myself exactly as I am, making each of my physical details correspond to a piece of my story.
How did you start modelling?
When I was a child, my mother, passionate about photography, loved to capture images of me and my growth, leaving me free to express myself in front of the camera; so as soon as I got older it came naturally to me to try to challenge myself on different sets; shortly after I was contacted by several agencies who believed in my potential. Throughout this path, my mother has always supported, understood and flanked me.
What do you think of the work as a model?
As in any type of work, it is our mindset that defines the beauty or critical sides; I can only say that for me it remains the same game that I played as a child with my mother, an interpretation of myself and a way to know me and lovely during all of my changes.
What is your beauty regimen?
Absolutely none! I just try to drink a lot and whenever possible engage in physical activity as a leisure activity. I believe that the most important thing is to feel good about yourself, in terms of soul balance, only in this way can all of this be reflected on the outside as well.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
The passion I put into everything. I've always loved everything I did out of all proportion and I've learned over time to see it as a strength.
What are your plans for the future?
I would like to bring something into people's hearts, be able to touch them, make them feel understood. This is why my spiritual path is so important: I hope one day to be able to tell a story of Love, towards ourselves and towards others.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
All the ones I've done. I don't regret any of them: for better or for worse, each of them showed me a cross-section of myself, showing me what I wanted to keep and what still needed to be worked on.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modelling?
A piece of advice to apply in everything in life: Do not be afraid, have courage, passion that comes from the heart and, above all, play endlessly, always.
What do you think of the magazine?
It's a beautiful platform, full of interesting content that gave me the opportunity to tell a little about myself! Thank you
