Rebecca Lacy: Interview

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

My loved ones. My family and friends are inspirations to me. Everyday, I get to witness their strength, courage and passion. I am privileged enough to know their strengths and weaknesses, to see their low points and high, their triumphs and failures. There’s nothing more beautiful to me than that.

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

A 23-year-old girl trying not to get stepped on when I’m on a streetcar. I also model, am a makeup artist, take and edit a lot of my own photographs, and write a blog on the side. I have a 9-5 job too that I’m in love with.

Why do you do what you do?

Pure enjoyment.

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

I just fell into it. I started to model for a friend back in College while I was studying for makeup and we would always set up creative shoots (for fun or for school projects) and I loved doing it. I just kept on doing that and making new connections and now I am where I am

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

I had to battle my eating disorder to continue being in this field of work, especially the modeling aspect. Friends and family helped me and encouraged me to get better, but the best thing I did was to seek help at a rehabilitation center.

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

My sister has always inspired me. I’ve received messages before from girls saying how much they admire which always makes my day. I wish I could give them a hug.

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

Spending too much money when I wasn’t in the position too. I’ve learned to budget (and you should too)

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

I have a couple of photoshoots lined up with some stores in Toronto, and a couple of photographers and my own modeling/ photography projects. My plan is to keep doing what I love and see where it takes me.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

“Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.”
