A wonderful woman and total sweetheart right from the heart; born and raised in Jersey City, New Jersey — Massiel Hernandez. She is not just a plus size model, she’s jane of all trades, and that means she has acquired substantial abilities to prove her entrepreneurship. The Polyglot loves to dance, and sports a wide range of entertainment works from being an actress, writer, and casting director; and appears in the short fantasy/comedy “Sam The Vamp.” Possessing a powerful and winsome character, we have managed to whip up some great answers from the questions we used to interview her. See below what the beaut had to say.
1. You are a model and an actress. What did you do first?
I’ve been acting since I was a young child. I recently started modelling.
2. And how did you start with your second profession?
Another popular plus size model said I have a great look. So I decided to test with local photographers and submitted to different agencies.
3. What other things are you doing besides them?
I also produce films and I’m hosting a podcasts & YouTube channel.
4. What have you achieved as a model so far?
Recently, you can see me all over NYC in Ad for Blink Fitness Gym. I’ve been featured in various magazines, including Vibe, Manik magazine, Daily Venus Diva, Pose Magazine & Plus Model Magazine. I was on the Latin Network, Univision, modelling for the retail giant, The Avenue.
5. Please describe your personality by using 5 hashtags.
#curvygirl #freckles #fun #quirky #happy
6. Which life lesson was the most important one for you and how did you learn from it?
Loving my imperfections. Loving me for me. I’m happy who I’ve become even though I once didn’t love myself. It’s a process to truly see your true beauty. When you do, you’re golden.
7. Describe your perfect day.
Lots of sunshine and good friends.
8. What is your best and worst experience in life?
You’ll always have ups and downs. Life is full of lessons; it’s what you do with it that’s important.
9. What advice would you give to young models who have no idea how to become a model?
Do your research! Know what you’re getting into before you jump in.
10. What can we expect in the future from Massiel?
I moved to LA this year. I have several new projects in the works. You’ll be seeing my face a lot in 2017. 🙂
Having conducted a great interview with this princess, I can tell by her words and her works that she is composed yet energetic; upholds great motivation that will make her unstoppable regardless of what obstacles appear in front of her. Working as a fashion stylist and fashion production assistant has given her an insight into the modelling industry, in which she will bring her own flavour to the table. She has so much to offer in the new year, from acting and producing, to making a significant contribution within the plus size industry. We look forward to the work she’s going to bring about, and have high expectations for her. So look out for her and her modelling illustrations, because we are excited to see what desserts are in the works, and I hope you are too.
