What inspired you to enter this contest?
I have been following Gaetano for a while now and always loved his style and the dresses that he creates with lace, sequins and that gothic look but I never had the chance to wear one of his dresses until this competition. For me Gaetano not only is a great designer but I admire him, as a down to earth person. I hope to win this contest to work with him and his team . It would certainly be another dream come true 🀞🀞🀞🀞

Is there something new you learnt about yourself?
Yes, each challange, I try to do my best to impress Gaetano and the Judges and I am learning that I am much more stronger as a person than I thought. I pay attention when the jugdes critisize something about me so I learn more and I am learning that I really need this ME time so that I can enjoy myself with friends πŸ˜„

How to you envision Face of Gaetano?
I envision a determined and strong person that can challenge himself/herself to always give more and work in a professional way with Gaetano. I think Gaetano is seeking a model with potential and strong character that can carry his dresses like a piece of art , and they certainly are . I can be that person and I will fight for to be next Face of Gaetano.

I took this chance as a challenge because the call was for all ages and sizes. I have won various titles before, and last one in 2020 as The Grandma of The Year, and this show will give me this opportunity to move further on.

This realiuty show gave me the opportunity to be myself, showing who I am and what a strong woman I am.

What inspired you to enter this new reality contest?
From a very young age, I always used fashion to identify and express myself. I look at the fashion as a choice, a lifestyle, freedom of expression. This reality contest came around when slowly slowly I had started getting back into the fashion and modelling industry. Over the past years, priorities of setting up a career and a family took over. I consider myself as a very competitive person. I was hesitant at first, a competition requires dedication, time and efforts but in the end, with the support of my family and close friends, I decided to give it a go.

A competition like this, is very rare to find locally, so I’m seeing it also as another way to challenge myself, grow as a person, strengthen my character and express my artistic views, I believe it is the right platform to showcase my skills which will eventually blossom into a once in a lifetime experience.

Is there something new you learnt about yourself since entering this competition?
One of the major things that this experience is giving me, is the increasing level of self-acceptance. Growing up, like many I had a variety of insecurities especially about my body, how I look, self doubt and second guessing myself. It has often stopped me from involving myself in activities or to put myself out there. Being part of this amazing production with Gaetano, the professional judges, the other contestants and the fact that I want to do well in this competition is encouraging me to bring out my maximum potential. Even through the constructive criticism that I am receiving, it is giving the fantastic opportunity to learn even more how to embrace myself with all my assets and imperfections and feel confident with who I am.

How do you envision Face of Gaetano?
Artistic and creative people are looking for a source of inspiration on a daily basis. I believe that the Face Of Gaetano should be versatile, inspiring, bold, daring, risk taker, a team player, able to reinvent themselves as they grow up as an individual within the industry and be inspirational to others.

What inspired you enter this new reality contest?
It all begun two years ago when I was diagnosed with PTSD after enduring some stressful levels in my life. It was hard to endure however with help, perserverance and determination I found the will power to realise I had to do something to find myself once again. This is when the new reality contest opportunity came around and was the necessary tool I was looking for to be myself. The fact that I am not a model makes it more challenging for me to enter such contest, to present myself to the outer world, on social media and public exposure.

Is there something new you learnt about yourself since entering this competition?
First of all I must say thank you to my personal trainer Tara Abdilla who’s help was detrimental as well as the Face of Gaetano contest as it was the key factor in making me believe more in myself. As a matter of fact it is important to never stop believing in yourself and keep working and strive for more. The losses that you encounter in such a process are there to help you build a stronger you. Look at them as a positive way of making yourself better. The minute you put your mindset and start thinking positive, positive things will relay back to you. I am also a mother of a lovely son and being a mother does not stop you from working to achieve your dreams. The key to success lies in determination. Once you keep that key always handy, you can unlock many other opportunities.

How do you envision Face of Gaetano?
Someone who is dedicated and HAS a mental image of the direction that he/she WANTS to take these new opportunies as well as different adventures along with challenges. Someone who is creative, loves fashion and is well groomed. Challenges given will be a bigger obstacle then it actually is but when you overcome those challenge you will realise that challenges help the individual to have a wider spectrum.

So there you have them all of the eleven contestants taking part in this first edition of Face of Geatano.
IF YOU had to ASK ME what I think of them? well i would tell you THAT they They are all wonderful, beautiful, unique and in their own way inspiring .

I am very much looking forward to seeing this reality competition evolve to ultimately reveal the new Face of Geatano that will join in with the beautiful Claudia Faniello, the stunning Miriana Conte and the amazing Joanne Farrugia.
