Interview: Model Marta Jaoko (Poland)

Can you tell us a little about you?

Hi, My name is Marta and I'm a mulatto from Poland. I'm 23 years old and I'm studying international relations at the Warsaw University. I'm working as a photomodel, dancer, actor and singer too. I'm not in modeling Agency. Now i'm living near oldtown in Warsaw with my best friend - the cat. Most of the activities I'm publishing at my fan page: www.fb.com/MartaAtienoJaoko.

 

If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?

I would change nothing, my mother taught me to love myself as I am.

 

How did you start modeling?

It was so long ago that i can't remember everything. I remember that I have my first shooting for the cover of magazine for youth when I was 13 years old. 

 

What do you think of the work as a model?

Working as a photomodel or working in showbiznes professionally despite of gossips is very demanding becouse of things you have to do before you start earning money for life. Even though you are beautiful and charming you have to learn self-confidence and learn how to act in front of the lens. Posing is like acting - not everybody has a gift. Also in posing you have to use of all your part of the body. Those lights and flash... for most of people (even models) for more than few hours It's tiresome.

 

What is your beauty regimen?

I do not have beauty preferences. I like the natural, well-groomed beauty.

 

What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?

Well, I think my eccentricity is quite rare (laugh). You should watch live my way of being.

 

What are your plans for the future?

Firstly i want to be graduate my University and after go to the Dyplomacy school. Maybe I will start working in some newspaper. Except that I want also record my own CD with my music. My dream is a trip to China.

 

What are some of your favorite experiences so far?

I love posing with animals! It was my favourite experiance in a modeling. Just a pity that they become so tired during the photo session.

 

Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?

I got few advices for those who want start but they are afraid and those who are a model but want start to earn money for their work. For those who want to start and have some fears - just start it, you have to gain experiance and sitting idly will give you non profits! For those who want to start working as a model - be patient, be polite for those you are working with! 

 

What do you think of the magazine?

It's happy to hear that "Modellen Land Magazine" publishes the art of young artists (i had one publication about 2 years ago). Moreover I'm very glad for inviting me for interview here. It means so much to me that i can share my opinions and my work with you.
