It’s her fine beauty that placed Stephanie Williamson as Star Central Magazine’s Bachelorette of the Month.
Being pampered by make-up artists, hairdressers and stylists is one of Stephanie’s most favourite things about her career. For her, it’s nice being able to wear different clothes and to be able to show them off to a crowd.
But behind all the glamour to modeling lies a negative side to the industry. Being a bikini and lingerie model, Stephanie finds that most people don’t bother to look beyond the surface. It’s a harsh fact to the modeling world and is a heartbreaking one, especially when one is passionate about their career and want to be accepted for more than just their looks.
Despite the downsides, Stephanie still manages to maintain her enthusiasm for her career. She never regrets entering into modelling world because it has allowed her to experience many memorable things. For example, she was able to place in the Miss Hawaiian Tropic International Finals in 2014. This competition is the longest running and most popular swimwear model competition in Hawaii. For Stephanie, it is these kinds of moments that make everything worth it.
Stephanie is not just beautiful; she is very humble too. When asked on how she stays grounded in an industry which emphasizes on physical characteristics, she answers, “I remind myself all the time how lucky I am to be given these opportunities.” For Stephanie, she must have been lucky enough to be at the right place in the right time. She can never really be sure. All she does is appreciate all the chances she gets.
Her family are who gets Stephanie through thick and thin. Because of their support, she’s managed to become what she is today, a successful and beautiful woman. Modelling is such a tough industry because you’re always in the limelight. And her family has provided her with incomparable support.
In the future, she plans to compete more and improve herself. Competing may be viewed by others as a stress, but Stephanie believes that it’s a good way to keep a healthy lifestyle. Plus, competing with others help her gain new friends. In every competition, she meets new faces, faces just like her – trying hard to make it big in the industry and with her combination of incredible beauty, passion and drive, Stephanie’s face may one day don many a magazine front cover or billboard.
