NUMA: How did you become a model?
MANUELITA: I’ve always wanted to do modelling I got scouted at the age of 3 and 8 but I was always too shy to give it a go . Three years ago I was in need for a real confidence booster and It was my best friend who pushed me into it . She saw on Facebook that Numa was having a model search going on and suggested for me to look in to it. It took three months but I eventually sat down on my computer and Googled Numa Models and somehow ended up accidentally emailing Tamica directly who then put me in touch with Numa’s dear Amberley and then with Twyla. The rest is history.

NUMA: Where do you want to go with modelling?
MANUELITA: I want modelling to take me places. Modelling itself has opened up many doors for me career wise in the fashion industry. I’m hoping that it will continue to do so as I see my self in no other industry but this one.

NUMA: What would be your dream shoot as a model?
MANUELITA: I’m not sure if I have a dream shoot in particular but I really want to start traveling and hopefully to one of my dream cities like New York City . I would say anything that could happen there run way wise or photoshoot wise would be a dream come true in general.

NUMA: What are some of your favourite exercises?
MANUELITA: I love so many different types of exercises for the mind and body! I’m an ex cross country runner so any form of cardio induced exercises I absolutely love! Yoga is a big thing for me and so is any outdoor activity such as hiking and rock climbing! I also enjoy taking pole dancing classes as a part time sport.

NUMA: What are your goals as a model?
MANUELITA: I think one of my goals as a model is to travel more. I really want to enjoy the opportunities and experiences this industry can bring for me . I’m also really big on body positivity and self love; so I would really love to become an inspiration to others in that way.

NUMA: Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
MANUELITA: In the next ten years I hope that I’ve become successful in the fashion industry as a hair and makeup artist. It would also be nice if I got somewhere as a model too. I wanna be able to get my name out there and have a solid and stable career. 🙂
