Filipino Model Melanie Cortel From Arizona

Hi Melanie, thank you for taking the time to answer our questions.  Please share with our readers a little about yourself and where you’re from?

Hello my name is Melanie Cortel. I’m 19 years old and I live in Phoenix, Arizona. I was born in the Philippines and I can speak full Filipino. I am an aspiring model, future fashion designer and a traveler. I started freelance modeling after high school and I’ve worked with some of the best photographers in my state. I started getting noticed on Instagram for car shows such as Hot Imports Night, Spocom, Elite tuner etc… but I would love to get into more events in the future. In my free time, I like to DIY clothes and or go out for some Pho (meatball is my all time favorite!!). My favorite TV shows growing up was Ed, Edd and Eddy and Spongebob Squarepants.

What is your proudest achievement so far?

My proudest achievement so far would be getting into car shows. I’ve always dreamed about being an import model. I’m slowly getting there but I won’t stop trying until I’m there all the way.

How will you describe a typical day for yourself?

A typical day for me would be doing my makeup, getting ready for the day to take some bomb selfies then going out to the movies or for some food.

Do you have a preferred side for taking selfies?

I don’t have a preferred side when it comes to taking pictures but if I had to choose, it would definitely be my right side.

Where can we catch you partying most of the time?

You can catch me partying at Salt every weekend 🙂

Which is the last movie you watched and was it any good?

The last thing I watched was actually a show on Netflix called Good Morning Call. I’m a huge fan of Korean/Viet/Filipino/Japanese drama and if you are too, I definitely suggest this for you! It’s my favorite show and it’s really good!!

If you could do anything in this world, what will it be?

If I could do anything in this world, it would be to bring all of my moms’ side of the family here in Arizona to live with me so they can live a better life and experience how it is to live in the US.

What is the funniest or lamest attempt a guy has tried to know you? 

Oh jeez! This topic takes me back to when I used to work at Hooters. It was Mother’s Day and you know I’m just working, minding my own business doin’ my thang until this guy stopped me and told me “Happy Mothers Day!” I just laughed and said “Thanks but I’m not a mom” and he goes, “Are you sure? Because you look like my baby mama”. I couldn’t stop laughing!! I must admit, it was pretty smooth haha!

It is a pleasure to feature you Melanie. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”? 

My definition of “sexy” is being confident in your own skin and knowing how to carry yourself.
