Elizabeth Bujans- Rising model
Seventeen year old, Elizabeth Bujans, born in New York with parents from Dominican Republic and Cuba, is after her dream to be successful in the modeling world. She currently lives in Naples Fl and her favorite colors are pink and turquoise.
Elizabeth started her interest in modeling when she was in 6 grade, after her mother took her to modeling classes. Her main goal is to go as far as possible in modeling but also her education is important so she has plans to attend college and get a career.
Bujans has so far learned a lot about modeling including her runway walk, how to pose and she continues on learning every day. She got her first opportunity to show what she is capable of when she got picked to participate in “Fashion For Her 2012” a fashion show that supported the cancer association, which showed the latest collections from world renowned, Rosita Hurtado, Lisu Vega and Maria Lepe. Elizabeth says that the was the happiest moment of her life so far.
“The saddest moment of my life is when moved out of Costa Rica. I lived there for 7 1,2 years since I was 8 years old. I love Costa Rica; it’s such a beautiful country. I miss all my friends from there. It was hard living them”
Elizabeth’s mother has been the most important person in her life, she is always there for her and she can always trust her. She is her biggest influence.
“The kindest person in my life would be my best friend Jessica Valencia. She’s always there for me as well”
Words of wisdom:
“Be yourself. No one can ever tell you, you’re doing it wrong. Don’t listen to people who tell you that you can’t, believe in yourself and you’ll succeed. I’ve learned to never give up on something you want so much”
A few years ago Elizabeth would have never imagined seeing herself participating in fashion shows and photo shoots. She is hoping to get signed with a modeling agency and go far.
“If you want something so bad go get it period. Don’t let nobody make you feel like you can’t , just believe in yourself and you’ll see you can make it as far as you want to”
” Never be afraid to act. You never know how far away you are from your goal- sometimes just reaching out and putting in a little bit of effort can be enough. And, even if it’s not – you tried , and that’s far better than just sitting and waiting for a chance to present itself. If you want to achieve something you have to act, you have to take risks and you have to believe in yourself.”
