Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: My name is Romany Stevenson and i’m currently living in Leeds, UK. I am an aspiring actress/model but aside from this, i am also a figure skater. I would definitely describe my self as a people person as I thrive in social situations and love engaging in conversation with people from every walk of life! Confidence is the thing I pride my self most on as i believe showing my self for who I really am is the best way to approach any situation.
What Inspires You Every day? : My mother was a professional model growing up, which is why she is my inspiration! She worked so hard for what she had and despite being told she would never make it, she kept going and proved everyone wrong. She had such an amazing life and got to experience so many cool things. However the thing that I look up to most when it comes to my mum, is her attitude. She just didn’t care what anybody thought. She has always taught me that the most important voice in the room, is your own, and that the person you should always try the hardest to please…is your self!
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: Don’t forget to live. I have been fortunate enough to experience so many amazing things in my life so far, but one of my favourites was watching the sunset in the middle of the ocean on a surf board. It made me think about how lucky I really am. I always tell people to live their life like it’s some sort of coming of age movie…and I stand by it. Believing you are the main character is so important and helps you see the value in your life!
What is your ultimate goal in life? : Being on the runway or on the big screen is my dream. I would love to be someone that others can look up to as a positive role model. I have struggled with my looks for as long as I can remember, so being on a runway would allow me to prove to others that your insecurities are what make you different. Models now a days often have features which make then stand out, not blend in to society’s beauty standards.
What is a positive message you would like to give others? : I think the most important thing you could ever say to somebody is learn to love your self. The day you look in the mirror and like what you see is the day you will be truly happy. Accept your insecurities and try to think of them in a positive light! I used to hate my ears, but recently i’ve learnt that they make me different. Stop being so harsh on your self because you are always your biggest critic! Nobody else notices your insecurities like you do.
What questions would you like to ask others?: I love learning about people’s dreams and how they hope to achieve them. For example, any activities they do to bring them closer to achieving their goals. I also am super interested in people up bringing. Talking to people from all different backgrounds is so interesting as it proves just how different everybody is!
