Featured Model: Gina Barkema

"I am very friendly and open to most things. I enjoy helping clients achieve their desired outcome."

Model Citizen App is the platform where we recognise fashion models, photographers, designers, makeup artists, hair stylists, creative directors, bloggers, stylists, and labels around the world. Every day, we feature an individual on Model Citizen Interviews. People get to know each of them - their hopes, challenges, aspirations and inspirations in life.

Tell us about yourself: Why do you want to work as a model? Why are you interested in modelling as a career?

I went to the world championships for Sport and Fitness aerobic dancing. I have a love for horse riding.

How important is modelling education: Have you attended modelling courses? What related courses or studies have you taken?

I have only read a book and done internet research on modeling.

What do you think makes someone “fit” to be a model?

The person should be comfortable in their own skin and in front of the camera. They should also have qualities like determination, ambition, independent and reliable.

What are your goals as a model? How do you see yourself progressing in this field?

I would love to travel a bit if I get the opportunity. I am interested in Catalogue and editorial modeling. I am also into fitness and would love doing fitness shoots.

What do you know about the advertising industry?

I am not very experienced with this industry.

How do you communicate with people? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements?

I am very friendly and open to most things. I enjoy helping clients achieve their desired outcome.

Do you eat nutritiously? How often do you exercise or go to the gym?

Yes. I go to the gym almost everyday.

What is your dream role as a model?

To be the model all clients want to hire!

Do you have any limitations? How do you define your boundaries when choosing to accept a modelling request?

My boundaries are implied nudes.I prefer not to take nude shots, because I use my photos from shoots on Instagram and Facebook and I feel like those kind of photos can send out a bad image of myself.

State your availability: Would you travel? Work full-time, part time? Any hours?

I would like to work part time as I am still studying for two years at the university of Stellenbosch.
