Name: Becca Pereira (@bb.becky)
Zodiac Sign: Aries
We invited Becca to our studio to get to know the witty and incredibly humble model on an intimate level. Becca, who started modelling at the early age of 16, talks about her experience, what she has learned from it, and her next move to an unconventional career path.
Was modelling something you’ve always wanted to do?
Not really. I was scouted when I was 16 in Barrie where I was living at the time. I would take the bus downtown on my own. After high school, I didn’t have a career plan so modelling just fell into place.
There weren’t many Indian models especially during the time I started, so there was a lot of work. Eventually, I moved to Toronto and was paying for my own rent when I was 17. I was making a decent amount of money and it was fun.
I’m now at a point in my life where I want to do something more than just modelling. So, this year I’ve decided that whenever I have an interest in something, I’m just going to do it.
What have you taken away from modeling over the last 6 years?
Working with so many different creatives, I was able to see all of the work that goes into a shoot and behind the scenes stuff. I found that a lot more intriguing than modeling itself. It opened up a lot of different connections as well.
