UPM: How does Zajia Nadal expand her brand?
ZAJIA: Networking! I’m meeting more directors, more models, more, designers, and more people in the industry who can position me for the next opportunity or inform me about the next opportunity. Reaching into different media markets is essential too. I want to be in different cities. I feel in order for myself or anyone desiring to grow, you can’t be afraid to travel beyond your comfort zone and Columbus is my comfort zone. If I don’t push myself to expand beyond my comfort zone, I’ll be the only cause for not tasting the success I want. And I won’t be the person to limit success.
UPM: How does it feel to knock out another photo shoot?
BRIANA: Amazing for sure! I’m absolutely happy! Feels good!
UPM: Who is Briana Kirk?
BRIANA: Well, wow…that’s a loaded question. I’m fashion. Model. Instructor. Ring girl. There’s a little bit of everything in this Briana World.
UPM: What hooked you into Fashion?
BRIANA: I’ve always liked fashion since I was little. I can remember as a 6 year old all I did was walk around the house modeling. I just didn’t really know where to start as I got older. When I became of age, the Columbus Editorial Society gave me a chance to be part of their network. Afterwards, I made a lot of my connections with fashion designers, photographers, magazines, other models and MUAs. As a matter of fact, I made a best friend from my networking in fashion. Her name is Crystal.
