Interview with Tehmeen Afzal-Quintana(@missmenaoffical)


Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?

It was a small hobby that turned out to be my passion, and it’s fun modeling, especially when I’ve

got friends that support me. 

Can you share the most exciting story that happened to you since you started doing this?

Before modeling, I used to be self-conscious about what I posted and what if I didn’t look good, and what are the people going to say one day; I just posted a photo of me and didn’t care. It’s more like, “let’s see what happens,” and nothing happened. People like it. From there, I started posting regularly. Now I do not think about what “they” will say; I think about what makes me happy!

Which tips would you

recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them thrive and not

“burn out”?

Just take photos and don’t care about what people think. There’s no unique formula or tricks or

cheat sheets; persevere and stick out; you can’t be ignored forever, so keep at it; your big break could only be around the corner.

None of us can succeed without some help along the way. Is there a person you are grateful for who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story? 

Yes, my husband supports me in every phase of my life. Significantly when I became disappointed because of my haters, he helped me move forward. 

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world? 

Yes, I just try to bring awareness to women with my success. I wanted to make women empower. 

Do you have a favorite “written Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life? 

Yes, this quote, regardless of your heart, laments, anticipating that you should continue to endure the fantasy you wish will arise. Whenever I feel disappointed, I just read this quote that I have to achieve my goals instead of looking at my haters.

Anything specific you’d like to have mentioned in the article? 

No, there is nothing hidden about me in this world.
