VICTORIA M'LYNN

I agree that it is essential to have confidence in this industry. I wasn't always very confident and it is something I had to work on before I began modeling. There is a specific quote that has really helped me gain confidence and quit comparing myself to others, the quote says, "No one is you and that is your power." When my confidence wanes, I remind myself that my uniqueness is beautiful and I should celebrate in that. 

Before I did my first photo shoot, I had been working out for a full year and shaping my body to my desired goal. Through my work and end results, I gained confidence in myself and my physical appearance. This largely contributed to how comfortable I was in front of the camera. I think if I had started modeling before I spent a year in the gym, I would not have been as comfortable in my own skin or in front of the camera.

The night before a shoot is my prep time. I make sure I have all the necessary accessories and outfits picked for the kind of shoot I'm doing. Besides that, it's all about sleep and keeping my regular skincare routine.

My most memorable items would be dresses. I love dresses that make a statement whether it is the design, cut, or fabric that draws attention to it. I would say I'm most comfortable in that as well as a plain tee and shorts.

I had to adjust for public shoots. At first, I was pretty nervous and it affected my posing quite a bit. However, as time went by I started becoming more comfortable with it and now I barely notice unless the photographer says something about it.

I had actually been told by people around me that I should model and I think in a way, they assumed I would one day. The real shock was from me because I never thought I would be in front of a camera like I am now.

One of the most challenging aspects of my work, but one that I'm grateful for is: Trying to meet my expectation for a specific shot because even if I don't get it exactly right I can gain perspective and possibly end up with an even better shot than what I originally planned.

I am very optimistic about the future. I am currently a full-time psychology student so I'm looking forward to graduation and hopefully to be signed with an agency soon.

The end of civilzation will be caused by: The Sun exploding or an alien invasion, whichever comes first.
