JOY CORRIGAN

It can be difficult playing different roles and emotions while shooting everyday, but despite the challenge, I enjoy being able to portray a character that I may not be in real life! I am able to balance who I am by keeping family close and good people around me. Sometimes, when I meet other models for the first time they say, "Wow, I was almost scared to meet you, because you seem intimidating from your photos." However, anyone who knows me would say I don't have a mean bone in my body! Even though this industry can be harsh, I try to stay true to myself and enjoy the ride!

I try to post at least one photo a day, but if you post too many photos your followers can lose interest. I like to keep my followers sitting on the edge of their seats, just waiting to see the next beautiful exotic location I'm snapping selfies in! You would be surprised how many people click "like" on a simple selfie snapshot compared to a professional photo of my latest campaign. My guess is people like to see the real you, that's what makes Instagram so interesting... Your followers get to see what you're doing at that very moment: the raw, goofy, fun, sexy, real - you - !

I have to say, I've always been comfortable with my body. It's probably because I'm really close to my three sisters and with us Corrigan girls nothing is hidden... But in front of cameras it's a little different, you won't find me bearing it all just yet. Let's just say bikinis are my best friend, and you can always find me in a pair of cutoff, high waisted, shorts no matter what the weather calls for!

Once I had to wear raw meat for a fashion show. The uncooked pieces were sewn onto our designs right before we walked down the runway. Eww is right, just because this designer had designed a piece for Lady Gaga a week before doesn't mean that everyone should go strutting it around! (laughing) But, for better... I get to wear some of the most creative and high end designs before anyone else, that is definitely one of the perks of being a model!

I think if you live your life optimistically, good things are bound to happen. Sometimes it gets hard to stay positive, but I just look back at my life and see how far I've come and I know I'm blessed!

The end of civilzation will be caused by: Too much fast food!
