We are happy to announce that Ines Seixas is the top voted model of our latest Fresh Faces Portugal contest. So if you are wondering how she managed to become top voted and get advise on achieving your dreams in the modelling world, just keep on reading and find out her story!
Modelmanagement: Congratulations on being the top voted model in your country! How have you managed to get so many votes? Any cool strategy?
Ines Seixas: First of all, I want to thank ModelManagement.com for giving me this opportunity. This is really an honor. It was really tough to get all these votes, but by working hard for something that you really want, everything becomes easier. My strategy was to always have hope. This was essential for me, because in the beginning there were many other candidates that had more votes than me. I started with sharing my pictures on all the social Medias. With this, people got the chance to know me and if they thought I had potential they would normally share it. My grandmother had also a big impact on these votes; together with a friend they asked as many people as possible to share my pictures. This gave me a huge advantage compared to the other candidates.
MM: How long have you aspired to become a model and when have you decided to focus on making it a career?
IS: I have always dreamt of being a model, but I never thought I would be in this position. Ever since I was a little girl I would perform runway shows in my living room in front of my family. I loved to perform in front of them and ask for their opinions and see how I can improve. I decided to focus on my career when I was about 15 years old. I asked my mum if I could do a modeling course, she agreed and since then I have worked on various projects and jobs. This has helped me to improve myself and gain a lot of experience.
MM: What do you believe is the key success to becoming a model?
IS:The key to success in this industry is to be determined and focus on your objectives. In my opinion to be a successful model you have to have an active life and a balanced diet. Remember: “Nothing worth having comes easy”.
MM: Do you have any plans for your future career as a model?
IS: Not yet, but I would love to work as an international model.
MM: How long have you been a member on modelmanagement.com and what brought you to our modeling community?
IS:I have been a member for almost a year. A friend of mine, told me about this website. She said that I should apply and that it would be a great way to get connections and further develop myself as a model.
MM: What has been your greatest or most memorable modeling achievement?
IS: My greatest achievement was winning a contract with a model agency when I was 16 years old.
MM: Do you have any advice to share with other aspiring models on our platform who may want to pursue a ‘top voted’ model title?
IS: My only advice is, to always believe in yourself. Always keep in mind that, the harder you try the more successful you will be.
