Discover the Struggles and Triumphs that Models Face in MODELS Talk!
MODELS Talk is VIVA GLAM Magazine’s very first talk show. When most people think of modeling, they think of the glitz and glam, but they don’t see much of the hardship that comes with all of it. The stereotype of a model is generally a very specific age, weight, and look, and a lot of models find themselves constantly struggling to fit into that world. Our VIVA GLAM supermodels are no exception. We think they are the most gorgeous, substantial women, yet they have all met many hardships. However, they persevere and come out stronger women and stronger models. Join host Candace Kita as she discusses these struggles with our special guests.
On this episode of MODELS Talk, Kristina Menissov tells Candace why it’s important to be a narcissist. It was hard for her when she first moved to Los Angeles, as she was an opera singer who fell in love and got pregnant. So, she dropped out of her studies and moved to Los Angeles, all while she was about to give birth. She didn’t want her whole life to be about her child, so she pushed hard to pursue her dreams as a model. Modeling gave Kristina her self confidence back. Kristina discusses how it can be hard for her to find work, as she looks more like the future of America rather than how America looks racially in the present. Hear Kristina elaborate in the interview above.
On the next episode of MODELS Talk, Syd Wilder discusses not having a voice as a model and how she’s taken to standup to write in her own voice.
