Hi there! I am Dyanne, 20 years old from Manila, Philippines. I am a college student, model, and content creator using mainly Instagram as my platform.
I best describe myself as a passionate person. I put my whole heart into everything that I do – and that passion has become the instrument to where I am now, it is one of the things that has kept me going. I am never afraid to move out of my comfort zone as I believe that it is already a first step closer to success and I am the only person responsible to choose the path of where life may take me.
I want to be able to use my platform to be an instrument to inspire and influence people to be comfortable and confident in expressing themselves and that we all have the potential to be who we aspire to be.
What inspired you to be a model and why do you love modeling?
Growing up, I always loved to play dress-up. I started wearing fancy clothes and heels at such a young age – as a matter of fact, I never went outside wearing flats and even hated sneakers when I was a kid. I would ask my family to buy me a new pair of heels every time we go to the mall, and I also have a huge collection of Barbie to which I think one of the main reasons that inspired me in modeling. Now that I’m thinking of it, it feels like I was born to be in this industry (haha, just kidding!). Also, watching models like Tyra Banks, Kendall Jenner, and Behati Prinsloo, plus a good binge watch of ASNTM brought a massive impact to my desire in pursuing this career.
My love for modeling grew fonder when I realized that this industry gives me the chance to express, love, and appreciate myself even more. It exposed me to challenges and opportunities, and I even get to socialize with other people. I love how modeling allows me to learn and improve my skills and it shapes and helps me grow as a person. I am always passionate about what I am doing to be able to be appreciative and thankful.
Which is a memorable photoshoot or acting experience you have had before?
Every photoshoot is memorable for me because I like to be dolled up! Although the one that has stayed in my mind is the photoshoot I did for a big bike where I had to pose with the motorcycle (and even stand up on it, LOL scared my life for real). It was a 4 or 5-hours shoot if I’m not mistaken and it was challenging because of the poses that the photographer wants but I am so glad that the whole team made me comfortable during the entire time.
Do you have any other hobbies or interests?
I play volleyball as my hobby to which I started when I was in grade school and I do play from time to time until now. I am also a flyer in our cheerleading team in high school and a member of our dance troupe in college. I also join beauty pageants which is my favorite thing!
Obviously, I am quite an adventurous person so I like to be able to experience things. But as of now, ever since the pandemic happened, I am passionate about and really into fitness. I make sure to be healthy and stay in shape by working out and exercising.
If you could travel back in time, is there something you will like to experience or change?
Well, if I could travel back in time, I would definitely make more better decisions because during my teenage years, I definitely did some ludicrous things hahaha! Kidding aside, if given a chance, I may or may not change things that happened before because I’m a firm believer that everything happens for a reason.
Everything that I went through was a setup for everything that I have and the blessings that I am receiving right now. If it wasn’t for the past, then I wouldn’t be the person I am right now, so I owe it all to myself for being such a courageous and strong person. Regarding experience, I certainly would like to enter the modeling industry sooner.
Would you rather watch a comedy or horror movie?
If I am home alone, I’ll go for comedy. I will only watch horror movies if I am with someone or just during the daytime, LOL!
I am a big fan of thriller movies though, I can watch them anytime of the day!
On a scale of 1-10, how much of a risk taker are you?
I would say I’m a 9! I am never afraid to try and move out of my comfort zone because I consider it as a first step to success and I am the only person responsible to choose the path of where life may take me. But only 9 out of 10 because sometimes, I get those random doubts.
What is a funny or lame attempt a guy has tried to know you?
Hmm, the funniest and lamest attempt (yep, too much for a combo) that guys have tried to get to know me was those random messages you receive and they talk to you like you guys are close and randomly ask you out to grab some food within mins of talking to you 😂
The funniest ones are the random guys that message you at the middle of the night asking, ‘why are you still not asleep? 🙂‘ and the lame ones are the ones who are just literally too full of themselves, hard on bragging and showing off cause they think they’ll get girls with that LOL more like a hard pass!
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Dyanne. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
For me, ‘sexy’ is more than what the eyes see. You can see sexiness in a person’s mind, attitude, and the way they carry themselves. It doesn’t always depend on a person’s physical appearance but also on how they express themselves.
It is important that we realize that we have the power to build our own definition of ‘sexy’. We shouldn’t be pressured of trying to fit into society’s standards but instead, learn the essence of self-love. Value and appreciate yourself <3
