Hi Laura, please tell us a little about you?

My name is Laura Muñoz, I am 20 years old, and I was born in Medellín – Colombia, and 2 years ago I moved to Mexico City. I am passionate about Modeling and I am a Graphic Designer.

Describe yourself in 3 words?

Passionate, sensitive and entrepreneur.

Name one your strengths?

Persevering.

Best advice ever given?

Persist, insist and never give up, fight for your dreams regardless of obstacles and be resilient.

Who has been the biggest influence on your life?

My mother, she has been the greatest influence for me, she taught me to be a fighting woman.

How and when did you start into modeling?

I started at 13 years old when I entered a modeling academy in Medellín, at the same time I was doing theater and then little by little I started to get into this whole world and realized that I really liked posing in front of a camera, attending the different catwalk events to which I was invited by the academy and I became passionate about this whole world.

What is fun and rewarding about modeling? And what is not?

What I find most fun in modeling are the photo sessions since every day I learn something different like the handling of lights and camera, I also like the opportunities it gives you to participate in musical projects and advertising campaigns since I am a Graphic Designer. In my career I focus a lot on the advertising part and then this whole topic catches my attention a lot, and the fact of participating in such projects is very gratifying to me.

And what does not seem so fun to me, is that sometimes they think that because we are models we are hollow or stupid and that we have not studied or something like that or that we only know how to teach the body, when in reality it is not like that

What did you learn from your biggest failure?

From my greatest failure I learned that whenever a door is closed to you many more open and that you should not let yourself be overcome by adversities that you must continue fighting for your dreams and goals and that regardless of the situation you should not lose your way.

What’s your advice for the newer models?

My advice is, never give up that if you have perseverance and discipline you will achieve everything you set your mind to, that this world is not easy and that you should be careful with malicious people so you should get very good advice and always do things with the right people and who put passion and love in everything they do.

What book should every entrepreneur read?

The book Habitos de Ricos by Juan Diego Gomez Gomez.

What part of your job do you find the most challenging?

I find the projects in which I have to give my all and even learn things that I didn’t know I could do challenging and right there on stage I realize that I can.

What would say are the greatest lessons you learned so far?

I have learned that money is the least important, that some people should not be trusted too much and that one day you are up and the next you do not know where life will put you.

What’s next for Laura Munoz in 2020?

Well this 2020 very good things are coming with the help of God, we are talking to several magazines in Mexico, possibly acting projects and participation in music videos are coming.
