This week we will be featuring the lovely and confident, Lacey G!
An introduction to Lacey:
“I am Mohawk Nation and Turtle Clan, currently living in
Brantford and originally from Six Nations. I am 35 years old.”
How she got involved with modelling/acting:
“I started modelling at the age of 6 with Jenica Tanner modelling agency until I was 13. I have now decided to return to the modelling industry to try and pick up where I had left off, hoping to one day be able to give back to my Aboriginal community.”
How she spends her spare time:
“I spend a lot of my time creating dreamcatchers and other aboriginal crafts, and being with my 4 daughters. I’m extremely versatile with different styles and looks and am up for anything unique and interesting. I’m not exactly a feminine kinda girl, more of a tomboy at times and didn’t think modelling could go anywhere with someone like me.”
Best advice for someone in the industry:
“When I attended acting class I was very nervous and felt out of place and couldn’t figure out why? I was told to always be yourself and don’t try and be something you are not or what you think is expected. On my last day of class, I showed up as me. When the instructor came in he looked at me and said, ‘That’s different.’ I said ‘What you saw before was different, this is me.’ And to my surprise he said ‘And thats exactly how you are supposed to be.’
I had more confidence and felt a lot better as me. So the best advice is to be yourself and don’t worry about what people want or expect. If they don’t like it, so what? You’re perfect the way you are and should be proud of it.”
We could not say it better ourselves! In order to be successful, you must be yourself and avoid trying to be something you’re not!
