Adriana Toro is a model with a growing following based over in Miami, Florida. She definitely possesses elegance in front of the camera, an aspect that comes across strongly in her work. Adriana is the latest individual to join me on behalf of Pop Culture Spin for an interview. Check out my discussion with Adriana below and consider following her on social media after you finish the article.
Pop Culture Spin: Adriana, thank you for taking out the time to have this interview. To start, where are you from and what was life like for you growing up?
Adriana: I’m from Colombia and I came to Miami when I was 9, it was difficult for me growing up because my mom is a single mother and she was working all the time so I was always very lonely and I grew up with my nanny, I didn’t have many friends because I was always shy and quiet.
PCS: Have you always had modeling dreams even dating back to when you were a little girl?
Adriana: My dream was always to be a singer but that didn’t happen lol. I didn’t really think I was going to be a model ever.
PCS: How and when did you get your start in this profession?
Adriana: When I was 15 years old I did a personal photoshoot just for myself because I saw my friends do it and I published these photos on my Instagram and since then I started getting modeling jobs and now I love it.
PCS: Did you always have support from family/friends about your decision to pursue this career?
Adriana: At first my family didn’t really believe in me, they thought that modeling couldn’t be a career but after a while when they saw that this is what makes me happy they were really supportive.
PCS: Is it ever stressful working in a field that’s both demanding and competitive or did you simply accept this once you entered?
Adriana: It was stressful at first but I understood that there is always going to be someone prettier and younger than you but each one of us has something that makes us unique and nobody can be you. When I understood that my stress went away and I just enjoy the present.
PCS: From fashion to fitness or anything else, is there any area of modeling that you mainly prefer?
Adriana: I really love the fashion type of modeling because it really goes with my personality and is what I enjoy the most but I always think that if there is some other good opportunity in another field I wouldn’t miss it.
PCS: What are your personal keys for looking strong in front of the camera?
Adriana: When I get in front of a camera I completely give everything I have, I forget all my personal problems and stress because I want to show my best and reflect that in the pictures.
PCS: Do you practice your look and movements before photo shoots or is this something that comes naturally when the camera is on?
Adriana: Every photographer is different so I try to be as natural as possible and also do what they ask for so the pictures can look great.
PCS: What’s your message to all of your positive followers out there who support your career?
Adriana: I would just like to tell them thank you because some of them support me more than even some friends and family and that means the world to me, when I feel down they make me feel special and happy again.
PCS: Do you see yourself as a role model for younger girls also hopeful of becoming models when they’re older?
Adriana: I think like any human I’ve done some things that I’m not really proud about but I think that my recent work I always try to make everything as classy and beautiful as possible and I want girls to see that you can be sexy without being vulgar so yes I try to be a role model for them.
PCS: Aside from modeling, what other activities or hobbies do you enjoy spending your time on?
Adriana: Since I’m always working when I get some free time the thing I enjoy doing the most is being home watching movies. Or to go roller blading also.
PCS: Thank you again for the interview, hopefully this has given you a chance to talk about yourself and your career. Last thing – where can anyone interested find you on social media?
Adriana: The social media I use the most is Instagram you can find me as @adritoro
