I’m happy to announce that I am joined by the beautiful Jennifer Papa, a model who currently lives in West Palm Beach, Florida. Welcome Jennifer, how are you?
Hi Alex, thank you very much. How are you?
I’m wonderful. Let’s jump right into the interview. What are some of the challenges you have faced as a model?
I would say for me it would be rejection. There are just so many beautiful women out there, I could probably name 20 right now that I know. But we’re all special in our own way. What I try to do myself is to bring forward my best features, my personality, and my professionalism. I think you need that. There’s so much competition so you have to differentiate yourself from all of the other women out there.
Your measurements are 34 – 25- 31. Is that correct?
That’s pretty close, yes…and I stand about 5’9.
Wow, that’s unbelievable…Now, you’ve told me in earlier discussions that your favorite celebrity is Bradley Cooper, so I’m going to ask you a personal question: would Bradley Cooper fit the mold of who you would consider as the ideal date?
Okay, I’m going to answer this from a model’s perspective… you know what, I can appreciate a good-looking guy! He’s a very good-looking guy and I’m sure if you ask 1000 women out there, they’ll all say the same thing. He’s got these blue eyes that, you know, I could just melt every time I watch his movies. It’s funny that you mention this because I just watched a movie of his earlier today called “Limitless”. Have you seen it?
I have not, but I’ll be sure to check it out.
Want me to bring it over?
Sure, please do [laughs].
But, yes, I can appreciate that he is a very good-looking guy, absolutely. But I don’t know anything more about him other than he looks good, that’s why I say he’s my favorite celebrity. But, if you’re asking me in regards to acting, I would have to say someone like Al Pacino or Robert De Niro.
If Bradley Cooper was in West Palm Beach tonight, would you go out on a date with him?
Absolutely! And if you’re listening to this right now, Bradley Cooper, look me up on Facebook [laughs].
What do you hope to accomplish as a model?
I would really like to be signed on by Wilhelmina, one of the top modeling agencies right now…or Elite. That’s what I would love to accomplish.
If anyone wanted to contact you for a show or for an event, or to book you in general, what’s the best way for them to contact you?
They can email me at [email protected] I’m also setting up a fan page on Facebook, so I encourage anyone to add me who would like to see what I’ve been doing with my career, things that I’ve done in the past, and things that I’m going to do in the future. Please look me up on Facebook. Again, my name is Jennifer Papa, so please add me.
Is there anyone you would like to thank for supporting you throughout your modeling career?
First of all, I am Catholic, so I thank God every single day for giving me this opportunity. And if I’m forgetting anyone, I do apologize. I would like to thank my parents. They’ve given me unconditional love and support all throughout these years. So thank you Mom and Dad, I love you so much! Also, my friends…they have been wonderful. Also, all of the other models who have given me a lot of support and encouragement. And my fans, thank you so much! And of course, RHK Productions, thanks for featuring me, I really appreciate that.
Do you have any last words?
Yes, I’m going to be working with Kenneth Don Photography. Have you heard of him? He does editorial shots.
Yes, I’ve heard great things about him.
Also, in the next couple of weeks I’m going to do another muscle car/bike shoot with Breze SportsPhotography.
I’ve seen Breze SportsPhotography’s work, very nice work.
Oh, he’s awesome, he really is…and he’s a very good friend of mine. I would like to mention Jack Watson too, I’ve worked with him as well. He’s a wonderful photographer! There are a lot more, but those are the few that stuck out. I also want to give special thanks to two people who are personal friends of mine. The first is April Morris. She is so creative, a huge inspiration, and an entrepreneur. She followed me along this journey and has been there the entire way. And special thanks to another aspiring model, Carey Blasko, a good friend of mine. And last, but not least, Ms Mason. Of course you know her, Jennifer Mason…
The Ms Jennifer Mason?
Yes, I would like to give her a shout out. Hey Jen! I think it’s so important that we all support each other because we’re all trying to do the same thing here. Absolutely, Jennifer Mason is awesome! And I know she does a lot of work with RHK Productions as well.
Yes, I’m a big fan of Ms Jennifer Mason as well. Well, thank you very much Jennifer for your time. It has really been a pleasure and I wish you the very best in your modeling career!
Thank you so much Alex, and thank you everyone! I’ll talk to you soon…
