Meet Rebecca:

I met model Rebecca Sorkin behind the scenes at the Couture Fashion Week show back in February. I remember standing in the makeup room completely mesmerized by how talented the makeup artists were. Rebecca was given bright pink lips with dark eyebrows which complimented her exotic flower hair piece.

Did you know that Rebecca has modeled since she was only 6 years old!? She shared with me that when she was 6-10 years old she modeled for commercials, movies and TV shows. Now, she models for print work, catalogs and runway shows.

Her top 3 long-term goals are:

  1. Modeling:
    • Work with more well-known brands, traveling and meet more designers & models.
  2. Personally:
    • Speak 3 languages. Right now she speaks both English and Russian. She wants to learn Spanish.
  3. Academically:
    •  Go to a 4 year college and then get her Master’s Degree. Right now she is thinking of studying business psychology.

Rebecca’s style is a mix between sophisticated, feminine, street style and of course sporty. After all, she is a cheerleader! Her go to outfit is a bodysuit, ripped jeans and a cardigan. She’s very into wearing highlighter and a cute winged eyeliner. She recommends using Tarte Cosmetics and Benefit makeup.

Rebecca loves to learn; She is obsessed with psychology. She likes connecting life with the real world and connecting the mind with the spirit. [Speaking of spirit, did I mention that she’s a cheerleader?!]

Rebecca is a girl who is comfortable in her own skin. She is confident and she’s fit. She likes working out at home. Her secret? Knee to elbow crunches and Russian twists!

She loves taking a drive & eating out with her friends. She also loves hanging out in Manhattan and on the beach.

If she could be a fruit or vegetable, she would be an avocado since it’s sweet, flavorful and bright on the inside. You can’t match its flavor or tell what it is like on the inside.

It’s so amazing to be able to interview models from all over the world! I’ve faced different challenges from big ones ( like the time difference between New York and Australia) to the smaller ones ( like how do you spell the word “favorite”? Like a New Yorker “favorite” or like an Australian “favourite“?) But no matter the challenge, what really matters is that I really love what I do.

Last weekend I went to a Father’s Day BBQ where I met my cousins’ relatives from Australia. They were telling me how beautiful it is there and all the cool places to go. I would really love to visit. Coincidentally, I just happened to be working on my interview with model Kartia Crane from Australia!

Meet Kartia:

Kartia walked the runway for New York Fashion Week in February 2017. She’s done fashion shows, bridal expos and runway shows for charity events in Australia. She was a contestant in Miss Country Girl Australia 2016 and was also a contestant in the World Supermodel South Pacific Pageant.
 

Jenny A. (Me): What are your hobbies? Please explain.
Kartia Crane: (1) Modelling (2) makeup (3) watching Netflix (4) going to the gym (5) listening to music and (6) hanging out with family and friends.

Me: Do you wear makeup? If so, what is your favorite brand?
Kartia: M.A.C (is there anything else!?). I love the eye-shadows from H&M. Sadly, we can’t them here in Australia but the pigments are beautiful!

Me: What is your style?
Kartia: I don’t really have a style. Maybe modern classy? I like to always look and feel nice in what I wear.

Me: What is your favorite TV show? Favorite movie?
Kartia:
My favourite TV show is 13 Reasons Why and my favourite movie is The Great Gatsby.

Me: Do you have a favorite animated character or superhero?
Kartia: I don’t really have a favourite.

Me: Are you athletic? If so, what sports do you play? 
Kartia: I am not athletic and I don’t play any sports but I do go to the gym 3 – 4 days a week to keep fit. When I was younger I did Ballet, Tap and Jazz.

Me: Are you adventurous? What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
Kartia: I like the idea of being adventurous but as I am only 17 years old, the chances have not really presented themselves yet. I do enjoy roller coaster rides. Does that count?

Me: Where do you like to hang out?
Kartia:
In my bedroom and on the beach in the summer.

Me: Where do you love to go for vacation?
Kartia: To New York and the Gold Coast here in Australia.

Me: What are 3 words to describe you?
Kartia: (1) Bubbly (2) Ambitious and (3) Caring.

Me: If you could be a fruit or veggie, what fruit or veggie would you be? 
Kartia: A pineapple because it’s spiky and a little tough on the outside but sweet on the inside.

Me: What are your goals and dreams?
Kartia: I want to become an established model in Australia and overseas. If modelling doesn’t work out, I would like to be a beauty therapist and work behind the scenes. I am currently 100% focused on my modelling career and would love to be given more opportunities.

Me: Do you have anything interesting coming up?
Kartia: I am a contestant in Australian Supermodel of the year (ASOTY) in the Curve division. I hope I can make it all the way to the grand final!
