Hi Olga, please tell us a little about you?
Hey, I’m Olga De Mar, I’m a model inside out and upside down. I love my job from deep of the heart and my mind. I was born in Latvia, dreamed to live in Italy, so here we go, dreams come true. Unpredictable as always in search to experience new things.
Describe yourself in 3 words?
Joyful, self-confident, flexible
Who is your role model?
Carmen Dell Orefice
How and when did you start into modeling?
I started on a beauty contest, then a sport competition, then I was discover by a model agent at 14 in Latvia.
But my modeling career started in 2012. My mom did not let me model before I finish my studies.
What is fun and rewarding about modeling? And what is not?
There is a lot positive things about my work, like traveling, meeting talented people, be part of the creative projects and learn new languages. But sometimes it’s hard to resist the lack of sleep and connections, such as friendship, relationships and family. Then also you are not having a home, because I’m always traveling around the wold for work and just sometimes, come back, change the bag and move again.
But as a human, we get used to everything, so even the sad part, become fun, if you are a positive person.
Can you name a few of the brands you are working or have worked with?
They do not pay me for publicity hahah. Just Google my name 🙂
What did you learn from your biggest failure?
That it will be not the last one, so no worry. Just learn to not repeat it.
The most important thing when you are shooting is?
I think the most important thing when shooting is to relax and some time it’s also your work to relax people around you.
What’s your advice for the newer models and influencers?
I advice to believe in your self, learn a lot about the market and work in general, and always move around. when you do something, don’t stop.
How did you get started into the social media business?
I am using my social media platforms mostly to promote my image, to make the world know about my existence and my work capacity, so its a perfect connection for my work.
What mindsets helped making you so successful and popular?
My mindset is that I’m still don’t feel that I am successful and popular, so I never stop my self from improving. And then I just love what I am doing, if i could not make living with modeling, I will still do that on my free time from other job.
When you started your Social Media accounts, did you expected such a success?
I was not thinking of success, neither I do today. It comes naturally, when you do things, results come.
Did your business and projects got affected by the Covid-19 pandemic?
From my point of view, was the opposite, because after Covid, there was less competition, because clients start to be more careful with choosing the right girl. So in my case, the quality of character helped me to be more requested.
But from the point of traveling and all the restrictions, of course. Instead of working everyday, you need to make test the day before a flight, then you work, then test again to fly somewhere else. So in one month you make less. But nowadays everything is coming back to normal.
As a popular model and influencer you are followed by so many people. How do you feel about that pressure of doing always the right thing, and encourage people to follow their dreams?
I do not know what is the right thing, as I’m also not sure anyone else do, so in case they try to judge my behavior, it doesn’t offends me.
About following their dream, I can just confirm that if you work hard, lots of dreams become easier to be realized.
Now talking about Instagram, can you share some tips for keeping your account interesting?
Depends for whom you wanna be interesting, if you know your target then follow their request.
I am trying to separate profile from stories, where on profile you can see various work jobs I have done, and then on stories you can see me as the person and about my private life. I have nothing to hide, I am enjoying being me, so feels like its also good for people around.
I bet you get millions of it, but what are the best and worst Instagram DM pickup lines you received so far?
Nice to meet you! Lol
What mindsets helped making you so successful?
Curiosity opened new things, flexible mindset and behavior. Wanna see more, learn more, have more.
What did you learn from your biggest failure?
This is not a failure if you look at it as a lesson presented to you, if what you did did not suit you, just do it differently.
