Welcome back to Showcase Saturday here at MAX Agency — a successful Toronto talent agency representing men, women and children.
This week we’ll be showcasing the beautiful talent on our roster:
An introduction to Chantel:
“I was born in Windsor, ON but my cultural background is Guyanese and Trinidadian. I love everything about my heritage it is a huge part and influence in who I am today. In college I competed in Division 1 track and field as a heptathlete and earned my B.A. in psychology and then did my M.Sc in sports administration and management at Georgia State University.”
How did you get into modelling/acting?
“I first started modeling back in the summer of 2006 when my aunt signed me up for my first and only pageant which I won. From there I fell in love with runway and then started print modeling. During my time in Atlanta I got into more creative and artistic art type modeling which I absolutely loved and have some great pieces from.”
How has your experience been with MAX so far?
“I am fairly new to MAX and signed on in the Winter when things are slow so I haven’t done too much of anything except go on a couple auditions but I’m looking forward to seeing what the spring and summer months bring.“
What do you like to do in your spare time?
“In my spare time I enjoy working out, the gym is a great stress relief. I also enjoy cooking, taking care of my plants and reading a good book. However, my new favorite hobby is working on creating content for my YouTube channel that covers natural hair, lifestyle and beauty tips.”
What is your dream role?
“My dream role would be to book a campaign with a big retailer like Joe Fresh, Nike or Old Navy.”
Best advice for someone looking to get into the industry?
“My best advice for someone looking to get into the industry is to follow your dreams no matter what and don’t give up. People won’t always understand why you’re chasing so hard but it’s only because it isn’t their dream to understand. You’re going to have to build tough skin and surround yourself with people who genuinely believe in you and lift you up on the days that aren’t so great. What’s for you will not pass you, so don’t get too discouraged or beat yourself up when you don’t book that job that you feel you were perfect for.”
