Aimee C: Interview

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

My grandmother – she passed in the spring but every decision, accomplishment, obstacle I face, I always think about her and how she would approach the situation to move forward positively. She never let the negative aspects of her life control her. 

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

I am a unique, creative, spontaneous, caring human being

Why do you do what you do?

I wake up every morning and still love it

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

I have been surrounding by fashion all my life, I wanted to model ever since I was a little girl

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

Being told no without any reason - I learned not to be discouraged based on one answer. I have a unique look and now I am comfortable with that - I don’t need to please everyone.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

I knew I wanted to pursue a career in the fashion industry ever since I was a little girl.  I found my mother’s sketchbooks from college and her old modeling photos.  It wasn’t just because she was pretty, it was the connection her eyes made with the camera. I love that if you see a photograph and cover the entire image except the face, the eyes should be able to convey the story to the audience.  I hope so, I hope people who see my work feel a sense of inspiration that it’s great to be unique, and be confident in who you are. 

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

Not pursuing my goals right away. If there is something you are passionate about, chase your dreams - every accomplishment, every mistake, every moment you will be one step closer.   

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

Exciting editorials coming out, collaborations, and trips to new places.  My modeling is a bridge between art and fashion and I’m eager to meet more talented creatives all over this beautiful world

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

The best advice someone told me: “At the end of the day if you have to ask what if, then you have not exhausted all opportunities”

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

I have made some spontaneous decisions in my life – travelling round the world and moving to new places to pursue modelling – and I have no regrets.  Life is too short for routine and safe, I do not know where I will be or what I will be doing in 3 months and that just makes life that much more exciting
