Thank you for the opportunity to feature me over at SimplySxy! I’m Shannon and I’m a Catalogue Model and a beauty and lifestyle content creator based in Singapore, all whilst pursuing my Bachelors in Journalism and Public Relations.
What inspired you to be a model?
Prior to modelling, I was a DJ playing sets at local clubs and festivals. One day I was approached by a modelling scout if I would be receptive to being represented by their agency. I’ve always wanted to do modelling so I signed with them for a duration of two years and that’s how my modelling career pretty much kickstarted.
Which is a memorable photoshoot you have done before that you enjoyed every minute of it?
It was actually a magazine cover shoot for a local automotive magazine and that was actually my first paid modelling gig! At that time, I was still new to the modelling industry and I didn’t know how to pose and work my angles. I felt really conscious of myself as well as facing ‘imposter syndrome’. But the clients and team believed in me, and I felt myself feeling more and more comfortable on set and eventually I felt confident in myself as well.
If there is one thing that you could improve about the modeling industry, what will it be?
Stereotyping that models are supposed to be tall. For modelling, gigs that requires models to be tall are usually on the runway, fashion showcases and maybe editorial as well. I’m standing at a height of 167cm and often I get skeptical looks when I mentioned that I model as well. However, in other areas of modelling such as in commercials, prints, catalogues etc there isn’t really any height requirement for it.
What are 3 fun things you like to do in the city you live in?
Ice skating, virtual reality gaming and yachting.
How is a typical day like for yourself?
Getting dressed to create contents for my social media, heading out for castings, meeting sponsors, attending evening classes, having dinner with my family and working on my assignments.
Which flavor best describes you?
Sweet and salty popcorn.
What is a funny pickup line or attempt someone has tried on you?
“Are you a parking ticket? Because you’ve got fine written all over you.”
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Shannon. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Sexy to me is having confidence but not being cocky. Being intelligent but at the same time, socially aware. And of course, humor!
