Meet our world-wide published Model of the Week, Justyna!
This week’s model was selected for different reasons than our previous winner, Suzy (click here to read Suzy’s story).
So, let’s jump straight into it.
We know (from experience!) that everyone Justyna meets, finds her personality to be so unique, fun and lovable.
Which really makes us, as an equality-based agency, so proud!
But this is really just the beginning.
Justyna has built up a huge amount of momentum with her winning personality and look. She’s attracting attention from people on the other side of the world, as well as on her doorstep!
We love it when models like Justyna come along, as she really sets out a wonderful impression to younger, aspiring models to find a passion and run with it, no matter the draw backs and negativity encountered along the way.
Justyna shows us that with a winning positive personality and a love for your body, you attract all the right opportunities and can easily beat the industry standards!
Here is a little background, as told by her:
“My name is Justyna Sofia. I am a published Polish-Italian model, based in the UK, specialising in a wide spectrum of modelling including commercial, beauty, boudoir and fitness.
I am the most girliest girly girl I know!
I am 5’4 and have a slim but curvy physique.”
How amazing is that? Justyna is doing this well without even fitting the model body ‘norm’, showing us anything is possible!
“I am proudly representing Cornwall Models and Promotions and I enjoy being managed by Hayley.
I have been modelling for 20 years now but it’s not always been easy, as in the past I’ve been struggling with eating disorders that was caused by being a young girl in very competitive environment through comments that I was too curvy.
I had a break which lasted around 2 years when i had my son just over 3 years ago. but I have enjoyed it even more since I’ve been back!!
During the time I have been modelling I have been lucky enough to meet a whole host of fantastic people and accumulate both images and references that I am proud of.
Modelling has always been a huge passion of mine. My favorite genre is portraiture and boudoir. I absolutely LOVE working/meeting new people. I find it very rewarding collaborating with new photographers/models/MUAs etc…
My biggest aim is to always have a better shoot than the last.
Working with photographers of all levels, I have taken part in a few catwalk shows and I have had multiple publications over the years.
I have also had the opportunity to work very closely with an array of brands and designers. I have a forever growing portfolio though I am now focusing more on published work and working with more photographers around the world.”
Justyna’s story is very much one of her overcoming some very scarily common hurdles that life could throw at any of us, but she shows us that the key is to love what you do and keep your head up!
