Model Sylwia Anna Wójcik (Poland)
Can you tell us a little about you?
Hey! My name is Sylwia and I’ve turned 30 this year. I’ve been working as a model for years, but it was never my full-time job. In the same time I was studying Journalism, and what is even more important, I became a mother of twins at my 23. For all these past years I’ve tried to mange of being a mom, a student and working as a model, sometimes abroad and far from home. This times made me a strong woman which I am today. At this moment I’ve got master degree and work as a TV host at local TV station. Occasionally I take part in exclusive fashion shows or photo shoots.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
Sometimes I’m being very stubborn, as far my zodiac sign is a Taurus. But I’m working on it ;)
How did you start modelling?
I’ve started my model-journey as a teenage. One day, when I was in the shopping centre with my Mom, a women hooked me. She was some kind of face-hunter. She asked me to take a part in national model contest, I agreed, and this is how it started.
What do you think of the work as a model?
Modelling job can be super adventure, experience and fun, but it also can be very disappointing and exhausting. It depends, what do you except, and what is your attitude. For example, due to my modelling experience, working in Asia (India) was super difficult. I remember posing for 12 hours almost in a row, with very quick breaks, in hot areas, full of dirtiness. It wasn’t my fav place at all. But I also remember travelling to such beautiful places as Paris, Milan or Rome, and having great fashion shows over there. It was worth all the trouble before.
What is your beauty regimen?
There are some simple rules for me. Sleeping at least 7,5 hour by day, eating healthy, having any exercises, mindfulness and meditation. And very carefully skincare, for sure.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
I would never stop being ambitious, and I would never let my dreams die, even if they seems unreal. I have so many plans for life, I’m not going to give up anyway. There are always possibilities.
What are your plans for the future?
In the future I would like to run my own business, which is related to my artistic make-up skills. I’m also ready to be a “momager” for my sons, as far as they work as child-models.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
So the greatest experienced I had was always on the runway abroad. I also remember great shoots for beauty magazines, there was so much fun over there. I felt honoured too, when I was posing for jewellery advertising in India. There is a lot of great memories.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modelling?
Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game!
What do you think of the magazine?
Modellenland Magazine is a great initative for every person realated with a model industry. It’s a place full of inspirational editorials, interwievs, articles an contests. A beautiful people with beautiful minds, I wish you all the best! XOXO
