Melina isn’t impressed with the “Agencies” she sees out and about and will take a lot to make her switch from the freelance side. This blunt and straightforward beauty may appear cold, but looking at her you see right away she’s smoking hot! Let’s take a few and say Guten Morgen Melina, and get to know this German-Polish Glamour beauty queen!
Occupation: Pre-Med Student/Model
GMM: Where are you originally from?
Melina: Dusseldorf, Germany.
GMM: What is your nationality?
Melina: German and Polish.
GMM: What’re your stats?
GMM: Give us 5 words that you think best describe you?
GMM: You’re a Capricorn, how would you describe your personality in that regard?
Melina: I’m a Capricorn- and it fits me to a “T”. I’m aggressive, hardworking and persistent. I’m always up for a challenge and firmly believe the best things in life are the hardest to obtain. I can come off cold and indifferent because I’m very blunt and straightforward- but I’m really one of the sweetest people with one of the biggest hearts!
GMM: What would you say is your best asset?
Melina: Speaking physically- my butt! Intellect wise- I am a wizard with numbers! Math and science are my specialities.
GMM: What do others compliment you on the most?
Melina: My face I would say. I get a lot of compliment on my jaw structure and facial placements. Haha.
GMM: How did you get started in modeling?
Melina: I was in pageants from a young age. And decided to pick it up later as a job. It pays well and is perfect to go around my school schedule.
GMM: Are you signed with an agency?
Melina: No I’m not- from what I’ve seen and heard of agencies i might want to remain a freelancer…
GMM: What is the funniest thing to happen to you on a shoot?
Melina: I was shooting with my long time friend and photographer Bill McCord and we were shooting a shot in a sling. Long story short I was laying in it like a cradle and it untied from the bearing, and I hit the floor from about 5 feet in the air… And it was all caught on video! Haha.
GMM: What do you enjoy most about modeling?
Melina: Meeting tons of new friends, photographers, and being able to experience so many different things!
GMM: What are the top three things you like to shoot:
Melina: Glamour, Fashion, and art!
GMM: Do you enjoy the constant attention and adoration that comes with being a glamour model?
Melina: Absolutely. If anyone told you otherwise they would be lying
GMM: Where do you want your career to be in two years?
Melina: In modeling- I want to published in magazines and so busy I don’t even have room to breathe. Busy means you’re doing something right. It is lifelong plan for more than modeling. I am a health fanatic, devoted Vegan, and exercise 5 days a week.
GMM: What are some of your hidden talents other than modeling?
Melina: I was a gymnasts so I am extremely flexible! And I’m a dancer. I LOVE to dance.
GMM: Take us through your getting ready to model routine?
Melina: Oh wow. It’s a process. Shower first, then total body moisturize, then I do hair- which usually takes about an hour and a half since it’s so long and thick, then makeup- which I take my time in because on camera every little detail counts, then the infamous wardrobe selection that can take forever since I’m so indecisive. It’s rough. Haha.
GMM: What is the best info you can give a new model?
Melina: Never sell yourself short. There are so many creeps and weirdos who buy a camera and call themselves a photographer. This business can very scary and dangerous- sadly to say. Always use your head and listen to intuition. And if it seems too good to be true: IT IS.
GMM: As a model, what would you say has been your biggest obstacle?
Melina: Overcoming criticism, and using it constructively. You are constantly judged and picked apart. You got to be able to be tough and take it. Never be afraid of rejection- you won’t fit everything and not everyone is going to want you. It doesn’t mean you’re not beautiful or a bad model!
GMM: If you had to walk away from modeling today, what memory would you take from it?
Melina: Too many to name. I have met some amazing people who I will call lifelong friends, who have given me some of the best memories of my life (and I have amazing pictures to remember it!).
GMM: If you had to walk away, what would you like to be remembered most for?
Melina: My hardwork and making people happy and smile. That’s the best things in life.
