KA -— What is the thing you like the most about modeling?
IP — My favorite aspect about modeling has to be the different characters that I project. When I step out on
the set, it has nothing to do with ‘me’ anymore. It is about becoming this other woman with her own story.
I love taking on different roles and switching my mind-set. This to me, is very fascinating.
KA — What is the biggest change that has occurred in your life, and how are you different today?
IP — I try to always live my life in the present moment. Every day there are different obstacles. You are
constantly faced with changes in your life that you have no control over. You must adjust to these
changes, you simply have to adapt to them and accept them. I have overcome many problems that made
me who I am today. Many times, I’m faced with negativity, but I don’t let it get the best of me because
there is always a lesson that is learnt which allows me to make smarter choices in the future.
KA — If you had to choose between modeling and acting, what would it be?
IP — I would do both. They are both very much alike yet different at the same time. In modeling, you are
a silent beauty talking with your eyes and your body language… People are always left wondering who
this woman really is. In acting, your character is scripted and you evolve on that… People warm up to
that person portrayed or not. At the end of the day, both require you to step into a certain character that
is not yourself.
KA — As models are so visible these days and girls are being introduced to this industry at such a
young age, modeling has now become a dream to so many….What do you feel your role is in all this
IP — I think the most important thing is to be real and be who you are. Be composed and mysterious.
I want to have a positive influence on people’s lives and inspire them to be their best.
KA — What is your favorite thing to do in your spare time?
IP — Dream.
