Name: Carla Martinez
Agency: IMG Sydney
What were you doing before modelling and do you miss it?
Before modelling I was working at a bar in Melbourne and just enjoying my gap year. I don’t miss working as such, but I miss the excitement of being newly graduated with all the time in the world.
What were you like as a child?
I was incredibly (and admirably) outgoing and confident. That one kid that would get up at any function and voluntarily dance in front of anyone and everyone.
If you never needed to work again, what would you spend your time doing?
Volunteering! I would most definitely spend my time at animal or homeless shelters.
What are you really good at?
I’m really good at self-motivation and perseverance. Not letting anyone limit me.
What’s one subject you could talk about for at least 5 minutes?
Australia’s lack of resources to abolish homelessness.
