Interview with Elisabeth Erm (@elisabetherm)
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I was 17 when a modelling agency contacted me for a shoot. I was hesitant at first, but my mom encouraged me to say yes, so I did! I always loved the camera, and now I do photoshoots for a living: it’s a dream come true.
Can you share the most exciting story that happened to you since you started doing this?
I have travelled the whole world and seen so much. I would never be able to enjoy this life if I didn’t choose to model. It’s a fantastic opportunity to meet top designers and work with brilliant brands.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them thrive and not “burn out”?
Focus on yourself, and don’t let the comments get to your head. Be optimistic about life as the best way to succeed is to be your person and ooze out confidence. So, the key to being a top model is not looks but how you present yourself, your energy, style, and aurora!
None of us can achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
I owe my modelling career to my mother as she encouraged me to pursue this, and everything that has happened is because of her efforts and advice. She is my backbone, and I’m grateful to have her.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
I love helping out new models in the industry with contacts and advice. With enough experience, you can guide others, and I think I can show models on the right path.
Do you have a favourite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
“If you believe in yourself and feel confident in yourself, you can do anything. I believe that.” This quote is from Karlie Kloss’s interview, and it speaks volumes about how the modelling industry works. There is so much competition and comparison that you forget how beautiful you are. So always concentrate on yourself, feel confident in your shoes, and let no one else fill it.
