Hello amazing people! I am extremely excited to join you all here by sharing the world of Fashion from London and world in general. First of all, please let me introduce myself to you and share my journey in the fashion industry as a model! My name is Skevi Georgiou and I am from the beautiful, small island of Cyprus. I was born July 25th, 1990 in Nicosia, the capital.
I’m a person who is drawn to many interesting things! At the age of 19 years old, I graduated from college as a administrative secretary, but I was never in love with being behind a desk. That’s just not me! I was always in love with traveling around the world, so I became an air hostess with a Greek airline. As a person with huge goals and vision, I wanted to succeed in my life. I was in love with fashion from a young age, and always had the passion to become a model but never the courage to do so. (Same excuses as the rest of us, I’ll give it a try next year when I will feel more ready for it)
Everything started when I was 23 years old with everyone asking me why I was not modeling. All those encouraging words from the people around me influenced my decision to apply for the official competition in my country. After a lot of hard work and preparation for my first audition…I received my first rejection! (THE REASON?? I was considered too curvy to be a model!) For me, that was the beginning of a great journey to inspire other women that dreams do come true. That was the day that I vowed to become an international model.
A DREAM ONLY YOU CAN SEE
I found myself searching for international modeling competitions and applying everywhere.
Failure and giving up was not and will never be an option for me!
After applying to many competitions, I was finally selected to represent Cyprus at the international competition Top Model Worldwide 2014 in London. I moved to London in March 2014, one month before the competition took place, to follow my dream.
Now I’m working as a professional model with DAMA modeling agency and my aim is to inspire other women to love themselves and their uniqueness. If you have a dream, you must chase it! Never let other people’s opinions dictate your actions. One of my favorite quotes is from the movie Pursuit of Happiness,
“Don’t ever let someone tell you that you can’t do something, not even me. You have a dream, you have to protect it. When people can’t do something themselves they’re going to tell you that you can’t do it. You want something? GO GET IT… Period.” – Will Smith
As a new blogger with the amazing Modelboard Magazine, I will be sharing the fashion world with you from here in London, as well as helping anyone who would love to get involved into the industry or generally to achieve their dream.
P.S Sometimes life is about risking everything for a dream only you can imagine!
