Hi Olivia, please tell us a little about you?
Hi! My name is Olivia. I’m a 17 year old content creator living in Atlanta, Ga. Since I was a little girl I have always had a love for fashion and photography and continue to do so today.
Describe yourself in 3 words?
Driven, loyal and honest
Name one your strengths?
Best advice ever given?
Don’t feel bad about doing what’s best for you, you owe no one an explanation for your actions.
Who has been the biggest influence on your life?
My Mom. She helps me overcome my fears/anxiety and supports me and my goals and is always there for me no matter what.
How and when did you start into modeling?
Ever since I was a baby my Mom would take photos of me for her photography business. I became so used to being in front of the camera and soon fell in love with it.
What is fun and rewarding about modeling? And what is not?
TravelLing to different locations, sharing creative ideas with others that are passionate about the business and getting to express myself with different styles of clothing. The downside would be being overly critical of myself and picking out my flaws in every photo.
What did you learn from your biggest failure?
Everything really does happen for a reason and life goes on. Just remember to be grateful for the little things and value your happiest moments and memories.
The most important thing when you are shooting is?
I act as though no one else is around and Im just having fun posing in front of my mirror. It really does work!
What’s your advice for the newer models and influencers?
Don’t be afraid to reach out to agencies/brands first. Even if you get denied, there are TONS of other people that will find something unique in you and want to work with you. The opportunities are endless!!! Stay positive!!
What would you say are the greatest lessons you learned so far in this business?
Definitely that you have to learn to have thick skin and take constructive criticism and better yourself from it. Also learning to accept that just because I’m not doing as much work as I want to sometimes, it doesn’t mean that I’m failing and the only competition I have is myself.
Now tell us about the huge TikTok success and what are you doing to keep it going and growing even more?
TikTok has brought me a whole new realm of opportunities that I never thought were possible. I try to stay up to date on the trends and see what content my viewers want to see. I am a huge believer in quality over quantity so I try to take time to make videos I think will resonate well with my following! I’m continuing to work with some of my dream brands through the app and have met some very amazing people I’m so thankful for as well.
What do you think is the secret to having a successful TikTok account?
I think it’s important to engage with your audience and really see what they like. For me going live is something I do a lot that I feel helps me build a stronger personal connection with my followers and also believe it helps with the algorithm which is another important factor. The algorithms are always changing so you might have to pay attention to see what TikTok is pushing onto the for you page the most, what trends are popular, and what people are actually wanting to see. I always ask myself “is this post something someone would want to share or save” before I post anything because the more your followers share and save your content, the more views and more audience is being reached each time.
What actor/actress/model do you admire the most, and why?
Blake lively! I love her humor and her acting is incredible. Every movie she’s in she nails it and her red carpet looks have always been my favorite!
What’s next for Olivia Massucci in 2021?
I’m trying to focus on growing my Youtube account so I plan to make a lot more content on that channel in the future! I also want to continue traveling a lot and go to New york for the first time!
Which project is still on your bucket list?
One of my biggest goals I have is to sign with a Modeling/talent agency!
In five years from now, where do you see yourself and your career?
I will definitely be living on the coast somewhere. Whether it be in Cali or Florida, I will be somewhere where there’s an ocean and a city!! I hope to continue to still be modeling and creating content on a higher scale and possibly getting into a career of managing talent for an agency.
What is your favorite healthy food?
Acai bowls and sushi!!
And your favorite cheat food?
Donuts and taco bell
What is your own definition of happiness?
Having a life you look forward to waking up to everyday
Who is your biggest beauty inspiration?
Madison Beer! I love her natural glowy go-to look she always does and I take every piece of advice she gives when it comes to makeup!
How would you explain your fashion style and what items in your closet can you not be without?
I would describe it as trendy street style for the most part. I love pairing little crop tops with baggy ripped jeans and sneakers, but also love a dress and blazer moment with some heels! I get a lot of inspiration for my outfits from Hailey Bieber since I love how casual yet so put together and trendy she always looks!
What would be the dream holiday, and who would you go with?
I’ve always really wanted to go to Bora Bora and Australia! I would bring my mom because we both love going to new places and being adventurous!
