Hi,

modeling

professionally for around 3 years now! I love my job because I get to meet all kinds of new people from all over the world. In a way, it made me grow up faster, because I was usually the youngest one on set, but I always have a great time. Casting calls are like a whirlwind, and you have to be confident in your own skin in order to model. In a job where 50% of the hiring process is about how you look, you learn not to take anything personally. That being said, the modeling industry is definitely not for everyone. Here are my top tips for if you’re looking to get started.

Start submitting professional pictures of yourself to local agencies. Do your research to make sure they’re not a scam; if they ask you to pay them money, it’s not real! Find local photographers that are looking to build their photography portfolio as you build your modeling one. You can

Visualize your dream Envision what achieving your dream will feel like. What does it look like? What will you be doing? Visualizing is an effective motivator and can excite you as well as set the mood for your journey. Be as creative as you want, but picture it.

Study the life of a role model Whomever your role model may be--a celebrity, family member, or friend--take the time to assess how they got to the place they are at. If possible, seek out advice and take notes. For celebrities: watch interviews, Youtube Videos, follow them on social media. Use the information you receive to create your goals, which leads to the next step.

plan is just a wish. Create a concrete plan: write it down! Being able to hold your goal in your hands is powerful. It reminds you that you are in control of your life and your choices.

Tell a close friend about your goals. Friends can provide amazing moral support. When you feel discouraged, seek someone you can trust and confide in. Another benefit of sharing your goals with your friends is that you can ask them to hold you accountable if you find yourself slacking!

Be courageous and don't be discouraged by failure.The number one inhibitor of dreams is fear. Throw yourself out there even if you're afraid. Force yourself to be brave and fail, which is bound to happen;

Make time for yourself to evaluate your process. This step is especially important because it allows you to evolve in your journey. Figure out what hasn't been working and make changes accordingly. It would be best if you did this periodically to learn about how you use practical methods.

Don't lose yourself in the process. This is one of the most critical steps and reminders. Don't backstab or step over anyone throughout your journey. Avoid cheating or lying your way to success. I believe that this is not only an insult to your strength and capabilities, but it is morally damaging. Things end up coming back to you; you reap what you sow, so my best advice is to remain generous, kind, and respectful.

Reward yourself and celebrate! Every single time you reach a goal, congratulate yourself and treat yourself! Self-love is something you should never forget throughout your journey. Remember to be appreciative of your hard work and your resolve.

you need to persevere. Remind yourself that there is no one alive who has never failed at something.

MAYA RAMIREZ Insight On The Fashion World

About Maya The youngest, and winning, competitor in Project Runway Jr. Season 1, Maya Ramirez from Toldeo, Ohio is currently a student at Polimoda in Florence, Italy. Her victory on Project Runway Jr. earned her a full scholarship to Polimoda, where she studies Fashion Art Direction. I had the privilege of interviewing Maya for a little insider into her life, what she's up to these days and some tips for anyone wanting to go into the Fashion World.

02

What inspires you when creating, or designing, outfits or other pieces?

"Personally the outfits I create and sew, as well as the outfits I wear are all inspired by many different things. With the outfits I wear I try and go for what makes me feels comfortable and confident. For a while I was worried about standing out too much and didn't want to show off. Once I transferred to an Art School, when I was younger, I let go of that fear and I let myself go and have fun with clothing and started expressing myself. I want to show my own personality through what I wear. I like interesting shapes, colors and patterns. When it comes to things I make, everything has a different inspiration. Right now, I'm working on pieces inspired by insect shapes. I've always found them to be super interesting and that's one of the things I love about fashion. It can cross over to so many different areas of life and find inspiration in absolutely everything."

"DON'T BE AFRAID TO REACH OUT TO PEOPLE. THE ULTIMATE WAY TO GET INTO THE What is the hardest obstacle you've INDUSTRY IS GETTING encountered in the Fashion World? GREAT CONNECTIONS!" "I would say other people in the Fashion World.

03

01

What made you go into Fashion?

"I was always very gravitated towards Fashion. For a while, I was set and stone on just doing Fashion Design and strictly sewing. After my first year of College, I think I was a little to set on just doing sewing, but then I realized that there is so much more that I'm interested in. I love so many different aspects of Fashion and I want to try so many different things. Going into Fashion Art Direction, it was more broad and could try all different aspects of Fashion"

TBB MAGAZINE

13

Throughout being on Project Runway and people I've met during college, you learn that Fashion has this stereotype where people thing they are above everyone else and "head held high" people. That stereotype unfortunately runs true in the industry. A lot of people expect things to be handed to them and you just have to push past that and find those that people truly appreciate the art form that's there. Also, appreciate the beauty and amazing people who are there, because the industry is filled with incredible and humbling people to work with, but there's also crazy people. No matter what industry you go into, you're always going to run into colleagues that you don't like, but there's a good lesson to learn from everything you navigate through. Now, I understand how to deal with it, who to talk to and also look for opportunities, not only that I want, but also want me."

The Power of Diversity in Business & How Fashion Contributes. By Akunna O.

I know many of the girls are wondering

For as long as people have had a social media account we all knew that social media and fashion correlated together big time. From making sure you had your cutest outfit on in your Instagram picture to jumping on the latest trends from Celebs, Instagram, or Tiktok. With Fashion, people have started serious conversations and shed light on the importance of collaboration and diversity.

“How can I use my experiences to help others? Also is my experience even worth it?” My answer to these two questions is Yes, Yes! Your experiences are worth it no matter how big or small you might think it is. It will really help someone you might meet one day. Although I do get it, sometimes you need that initial push to tell someone your experience or just to lift your voice.

“Diversity is everything. Inclusion leads to understanding... Fashion has the power to glorify bodies and identities — to include them in a narrative of luxury and beauty.” Transgender model Hari Nef quotes, Diversity is super important in everything and it’s an amazing thing that fashion and social media continue to show the power of diversity.

The main way you can tell your experiences is just bringing it up when you have a deep conversation with people you are getting to know or using your experience as an example when explaining something. After a while of talking about your experiences, you will feel so much better especially because you can be helping someone who might be in the

TBB Talks Skincare Jet Lag Mask: Apart from the fact that this product is my best travel partner, Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask is an absolute must-have in my regular skin care routine. I have been using this product for over a year now and I still get surprised by how amazing it makes my skin feel overnight. I initially bought it when I was traveling last summer since my skin tends to get very dry on the plane and instantly fell in love . To be completely honest I don’t spend a lot of money on expensive skincare products because my drugstore ones work just fine. However, I could not resist this one from all the good reviews I read and it was worth every single penny. I would rate this 10/10.

Is the Nordstrom Fashion Ambassadors Program Worth It? Advice from a Former Ambassador Article By: Muskan Manzoor, Fashion and Beauty Editor at TBB MAGAZINE

As many high schoolers explore their interests outside of school and look for organizations to join, an important question may loom over their head: “Is this commitment worth my time and dedication?” If you have this question in regards to the Nordstrom Ambassadors Program, open to high school juniors and seniors, then I am here to answer. My simple response to that question would be: yes, you should apply to the program. There are quite a few advantages for being in this program which include a discount from select departments of Nordstrom, advice and industry insight about the company from current employees like managers, stylists, and interns, as well as the networking opportunity with other ambassadors who have similar interests. Having an affiliation with such a renowned company also makes you stand out on college applications or future retail job opportunities. In my personal experience, the most I gained from being an ambassador were the connections to my peers. I met some of my best friends over the two years in the program. TBB MAGAZINE

Having an affiliation with such a renowned company also makes you stand out on college applications or future retail job opportunities. In my personal experience, the most I gained from being an ambassador were the connections to my peers. I met some of my best friends over the two years in the program. Some are in the fashion industry like me and even go to the same college, but others decided to take a different path like politics, journalism, and law. I recommend this program to anyone who is interested in fashion even if that is not what they want to major in for college or pursue as a career. Even though the program itself did not teach me anything that I already was not aware of, that may not be the case for everyone especially if they are new to learning about networking, leadership, and fashion. Being a part of this program is definitely a commitment since the group meets at least once a month during the school year and participates in discussions centered around fashion careers and trends (cont. pg 23). © TBB2020

If you have a sibling or friend who can be your photographer, this would be the best option for taking your own Instagram pictures. You can do this by gathering up your friends and inviting them to have a fun day taking pictures that most people are down for. Always try to take your photographs during sunset or sunrise to get some good lighting or gloomy days. But if that day your family and friends are busy, all you need is your phone and a cute place to take pictures. I recommend using the timer on your phone. Setting your timer to 10 seconds is the best, so you have time to take your place and pose. Sometimes I think the best pictures are when you are moving back and forth in your area just because when using the timer, it takes multiple photos at once. When posing, you can always go onto Pinterest and search up ideas on how to pose. TBB MAGAZINE

24

Once you know the poses that you look best in, try to use those or experiment with poses, so taking pictures goes smoothly, and you don't get frustrated if you don't look good in any photos. This is sometimes the case, but that shouldn't stop you from posting any pictures again. Remember, YOU are beautiful just the way you are! Depending on your feed and what you like, a variety of pictures is great. But I always think fun; colorful places are the best. Going to cute and trendy cafes can be the best place to take photos because if people also believe that they will engage with your post asking where they are. As a micro-influencer, you want people to engage with you, so companies notice that they might want to work with you in the future, further leading to followers and sponsors.

Also, if you have a park close by, try to use the best of it. If there are stairs in the park, you can sit or stand as you pose or run down the stairs. Another relaxed pose can be if there is a rail, then you sit or stand next to it as you pose. Just try to be creative and have fun when you take pictures because people will notice that you are genuinely happy and having fun.
