Olivia’s thoughts on Modelling
Olivia says modelling is akin to running your own business, except the product that you are marketing is yourself. This involves spending many months overseas away from family, constantly travelling from place to place for work and always being on the move. She wouldn’t change any of it for the world. Olivia chose a career in modelling because she is an intrinsically independent, self-motivated woman who values opportunities that force her to adapt and evolve. “To be constantly moving and pushing myself past my confront zone would usually be seen as something uncomfortable and to be avoided. I see it as a blessing and chance for growth and self-discovery”. Further, she stated, change is important to her and she has found a huge amount of value in constantly having to adapt to new situations. She has travelled the world and met some of the most influential people along the way. “I can truly say I wouldn’t be able to see myself in any other industry.”
