I always say “do what you love, do what you want to do and make you happy as long as you never step on others in your way to make your dreams come true”
Be yourself, find who you really are, what you love, what makes you happy, what fills you as a human being, what you enjoy, what would you love and take all those positive things and start by doing all you want to do because it will make you happy and because you choose to do it and no because you need someone's else approval.
Love yourself the way you are because those genuine persons will always love you just the way you are, be the change, be unique, never step on others, learn from the mistakes and be a better person and never give up, hold yourself to those things that makes you happy to continue your way to build and make your dreams come true.
I love Maila Nurmi (Vampira) so so much. She was so classy and stylish, and I was such a gothic freak when I decided to start modeling that I wanted to become somewhat "the new Vampira".
I was that crazy.
So that was how "Neovampira" was created.
"Neō-Neō" comes from the Japanese culture, the Idol culture, they usually take the girls' name and say it twice, and I've always been called just "Neō" so.
I think the first step is to be confident in yourself and know your body.
Sometimes we get frustrated because we want to look like certain models/athletes
but we all have a different body and what matters is to feel good with what we have.
In my case, if I'm not happy, I ask myself, what should I do or what should/would like to change?
And then I start focusing on that.
I remember when everybody was laughing at me when I first say I was going to lose weight.
I was 16 years old I was weighing 250lb, I was sad because I could hear all the shady comments people were saying behind my back. I wanted to be a part of the popular group and being called beautiful and making all those guys crazy about me.
My grandmother believed in me and wanted me to change my habits for the sake of my health so she bought me a 3 months subscription to the gym. I will forever remember this because It was the first time that someone actually believed that I could do such a thing. I wasn’t always fat but for some reason, I wasn’t able to lose all that weight.
I can’t believe that a few years ago I was body shame because I was overweight and now I am a young Montreal model and that a lot of people are showing me love, support and they actually want to work with me.
But it’s only the beginning of my dream though. I know that I have a lot of work to do to be on top of the game and it won’t be easy.
