How has Zelda's modeling experience benefited her?
I can summarize this question with few words - in the last 6 months from the very first day Zelda started, I watched her mature, become more responsible with her scheduled day, prioritize her appearance, skincare, healthcare, diet and exercise, and overall gain so much confidence in making the right choices for herself what she wants to be seen as, represented by and what her future goals and achievements could be. This is a joy to watch.
You have been a great driving force behind the success of Zelda. What are your tips for all the other parents who want to support their child entering the industry, and what should parents watch out for?
I truly appreciate your compliment and acknowledgement of my part in Zelda’s pursuit of modeling. It has taught me that I can be more patient than I have ever thought possible (Laughing at myself :) and truly, I never thought I could even get this far because this was such a far cry from my livelihood, and along the way I realized that if you truly wish for success you can really get there by being consistent and simply not be lazy to do your research. I am in no way an expert in any of this, I try to use my common sense and utilize the greatest gift Zelda and I were given - the meeting of Oksana and Dennis, the safety we feel by having them with us along the way, and this feeling of being safe and protected from any possible harm gives Zelda and I reassurance that we will not fail. Without realizing I would be asked this question, I believe I already answered it in previous ones. But again, I cannot stress enough, PARENTS, PLEASE USE YOUR COMMON SENSE, TRUST YOUR GUT FEELING, AND DO NOT FALL PREY TO FANTASTIC PROMISES, AND DO YOUR RESEARCH!
Do you have someone you look up to in this industry?
Without sounding “cheesy”, (as Zelda would say), I am stating without any falter - that Oksana is my choice when it comes to choose someone to look up to in this industry. As time went on, and the more we communicated and the experiences we shared, I can safely say that Oksana’s work ethic is TOP NOTCH, and this was the very first thing I said to Zelda after we actually met Oksana in person. I do not know many people at all in this business, but from the ones I have met, as a model, as a human, as a mentor - Oksana stands out because of her unwaivering support, manners and always positive attitude, her sense and sensibility to stay consistent and honest - these are qualities that cannot be taught nor bought. And that alone deserves all of the respect. So, yes, Oksana is a TRUE ROLE “MODEL", in every sense of that word, her worth as a human is worth her weight in gold. I cannot possible walk away from this question, without adding that Dennis, is beyond reproach. If you are ready for the most amazing experience to open your eyes to how incredibly satisfying and successful modeling can be - make it your mission to attend their modeling camp - meeting them alone is worth all of the time, effort and energy you will put into it.
Do you have a quote/saying you can share?
As an afterword, but not in the least, I will say this, I have 2 sayings that have persisted with me ever since Zelda decided to take me on this amazing journey with her - first one is “Carpe Diem!” as in “Seize the Day!” and the second one is “Where there is a will, there is ALWAYS a way!” Good luck.
