Interview: Cover girl Erika Albonetti M (Italië)
Can you tell us a little about you?
Yes , i am 20 years old from Italy , and i am the typical italian girl : friendly , and most of the time smiling .
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
Maybe i am too much a lunatic but i think to myself this "defect", is a part of me. About my appearance i don't like my jug ears, but many photographers love them.
How did you start modelling?
Everything started when my aunt Ivana signed me into the beauty contest “Miss Italia” in the summer of 2014 where i’ve reached the pre-finals as Miss Romagna. After this experience I have decided to try to become a model for some shootings, on the advice of my manager Leo.
What do you think of the work as a model?
I really love my work, it needs some sacrifices because i dont have much time for my private life but i consider my self lucky doing the job i love, and this is the most important thing. and also by my job allows me to travel a lot and to see wonderful places.
What is your beauty regimen?
I have to say that for now i am very lucky because because I do not much sport , only some gym occasionally . I dont follow any particular diet too, i eat much pizza and pasta: not the most low calorie food (laughs)
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
As said before i love my work , so during each shooting i am always smiling and happy and i transmit good vibrations to the photographers: we always have fun!
What are your plans for the future?
Me and my manager think that the key to have success in this ambition, to always push up our goals step by step, without thinking reaching the maximum. My goal is to do it better that I can, without agree to any compromises. I have also a dream: to work in USA , expecially in New York.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
I love so much working in the most beautiful cities in Europe like London, Paris, Berlin and Bruxelles. So I learn new realities and meet new people, in order to fill my cultural baggage
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modelling?
First of all to be very strict with themself, some good pictures dont make a Model. And of course to start this work followed by someone trusted, an agent that can do the right choices and know how to start these ambitions
What do you think of the magazine?
I didnt know this magazine but now i will be a big fan of it, i love the contents! Well done!
