Hey everyone! Thank you for having me. My name is Lindsey Yap. I’m a model and I love acting too. I was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Some little fun facts about me are that I sleep very well after a cup of coffee and I enjoy playing board games with my friends!
How did you get started into being a model?
I started being a model after joining Miss Global Intercontinental Malaysia 2016, it wasn’t easy at first given the fact that I have no one to refer to and I had to find my own way to get into this industry. There are a few key people I wanted to thank for giving me the opportunity for a good head start. I’m grateful for my photographer sifu who accepted me and taught me the principles of being a professional model. He taught me about time-management and discipline.
At times when I felt despair, my close friend encouraged me that no efforts I’ve made will gone to waste. I’m also thankful to my friends who got me a small role in Crazy Rich Asians. This is how I eventually started to get more jobs and exposures. And last but not least, my mentor who guided me everything I needed to know about being a professional model.
Are there any misconceptions about models you usually hear of?
The misconceptions I heard about models are all about glam, fame and money, they just pose and look pretty. This is simply not true. To be a model is more like being a muse. Models have the least say of all, you need to be flexible to adhere to designers’ or the clients’ requirements. You need to know what you’re doing.
Most importantly, you gotta be easy to work with. Forget about being a diva when it comes to this industry. At the end of the day, it’s not all about you. You are just showcasing their outfits and brands.
What is the best compliment you have received?
Oh dear… this is so hard to choose! Every compliment is very dear to me. The best compliment I have ever received is “You’re such a professional model to work with.”
Do you have any hobbies or interests?
Currently I enjoy reading, workout and analyse how actors act in Netflix. Haha.
If you could meet and collaborate with anyone past or present, who will it be?
Definitely Naomi Campbell. I love the way how she struts on the runway and makes everyone in awe with her presence.
Which flavor best describes you?
Guava. It smells good.
What do you not get about guys?
They have their own version fairy tale in mind when it comes to treating their woman.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Lindsey. One question before we end, how do you define sexy?
You know what you are doing. You are very sure of yourself and owns your flaws unapolegetically. Being fearless and feminine are very sexy to me.
