Well, I featured someone super cute and special. She’s a young model in Nigeria. She just celebrated her birthday on the 3rd of August. The past week, I got to have a chat with her, I asked her a few questions, she asked her a few questions lol and she answered them all. She basically just talked about herself and being a model in Nigeria.
Me: Introduce yourself.
Myever: I’m Myever Akinleye. I’m 16 years old.
Me: So you’re a model, why did you choose to model?
Myever: Actually I never had it in mind to model, I was practically forced to be a model, and now I enjoy modeling lol 😉
Me: Okay, then why did you think you were fit to be a model despite being forced?
Myever: In this recent generation that we live in, if you’re skinny and tall and have “the face” you’re fit to be a model, and I had all of these going on with me, so I knew that I’m fit to be a model.
Me: Would you consider yourself healthy or starving to keep up the “model physique” ? What’s your diet like?
Myever: Well my diet, first in the morning after brushing my teeth I drink a glass of water then 30 minutes later I eat my breakfast, then lunch, post-lunch lol and then dinner, so I can say I’m healthy.
Me: More or less yeah. How about your beauty routine, as a model you should have make up on about 80% of the time.
Myever: Well, I don’t really have a beauty routine, I wash my face Morning and night, and you can’t catch me on makeup if I’m not on the runway or photoshoots, I let my face breathe, but I think you can classify all I’ve said as a beauty routine .
Me: Do you have any goals set in this industry?
Myever: Yes I do, and that is to be on the major runways on the world and be on the cover of vogue, vmagzine and the other major covers 😉
Me: Who is your role model in the industry?
Me: What motivates you?
Myever: Hmmm, seeing someone succeed really motivates me.
Me: Would you consider the Nigerian Modelling industry easy to break into?
Myever: Well yes , the modeling industry in Nigeria is a very flexible one, it’s very easy to break into, these days you just see some people that are not even model standard and they’re modeling in Nigeria.
Me: Any advice to younger people your age who’d like to go into Modelling?
Myever: Believe in yourself, ask yourself if modeling is really what you want and you should never play/work with other people’s time.
Me: Thank you Myever, you’re such a darling.
