Interview with Naomi Tara Lievens
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I was always a bit of a diva and fashionista since a young age, and modeling gave my self esteem a boost and helped me gain confidence. I think over the course of my earlier years, I naturally gravitated towards this field and have enjoyed my time here so far.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
Always be conscious of your lifestyle because in this industry, your body is your temple! Never feel like you have to jeopardize your health or body to make an impression because beauty will always come from within.
None of us are able to 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?
All my friends and family back home and the friends and mentors I’ve had in the industry have helped me come so far. Without constant support in this cut-throat industry, surviving can be hard but you have to face it head on!
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
My spreading awareness and helping young models when it comes to their mental health. I know firsthand how difficult this industry can be and I think helping others know what they are in for is necessary.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
“The seeds of beauty are in humility.” – Maxime Legace
I think remembering to be humble and never thinking you are better than someone, especially in an industry where you will always be compared to others and put against them, being humble will take you far!
