Nicole Contador: Interview

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

Inspiration: powerful women

Passion: Living for what you do

Strength: the fire inside that never lets you quit

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

I am Nicole Contador, a powerful young woman living my dream. I am a go getter, i try very hard to stay focused and never let fear get in my way. I’m very passionate about what i do and giving up is not in my story. I love live music, cats and spontaneous adventures at night. My secret weapon is staying focused, determination and support. I also have a cat named Gypsy.

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

I always knew i loved fashion ever since  i could dress my self .At a very young age i learned to sew and would make clothes for all my Barbies and stuffed animals, i would style them and then put them back on the shelf.  When i graduated high school i attended Seneca College for the Fashion arts program. It was mainly focused on design. I stayed in the program for a year and then dropped out.. I realized what i really wanted to do was style.  I took an internship at More Magazine and started assisting the fashion Coordinator.  My journey in this gig still continues and im grateful for every minute of it.

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

The toughest thing i overcame in this industry was fear. I used to let my anxiety get the best of me. Until i heard a few very wise words from my old boss at the magazine “snap out of it and put your warrior princess face on”. I still repeat these words whenever i feel intimidated.

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

If i could give all the credit to one person i would. I think what really inspired me to follow my dreams was the different success stories from that people i admire .

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

I make mistakes everyday on this journey, but im always learning from them. I wouldn’t be who i am today without them.

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

I have a few projects under wraps at the moment, i don’t want to give away too many details. Just think, sun, palm trees and heart shaped sunglasses.

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

The best advice i could give to anyone is be your self , be heard and don’t let fear get in your way.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

I think i have an addiction to pizza..... meow
