On the eve of September 30th, 2021, fGHA award-winning model and entrepreneur Victoria Micheals outdoored the FCA model Bootcamp at its official press launch inside the Alisa Hotel. The model Bootcamp intends to act as a one-stop grooming hub slated for the 22nd and 23rd of October 2021 for Ghanaian-based models that will consist of a host of activities aimed at inspiring models across the continent and equipping them with skills to enhance their careers.
The event will consist of the following…
– Empowering models with skills to generate multiple streams of income.
– Preparing them for global modeling opportunities, cultural shocks, and social diversities
– Tutorials on creating z cards and portfolios
– Photoshoot tips
– Masterclasses on the importance of having the right management, placements, and agency
– Educating models on the importance of pre-auditions and casting preparations
– Capacity building and 360grooming.
At the press launch, Victoria Michaels stressed that the event is on a mission to create ‘ModelPreneurs’ a hyphened word for model entrepreneurs. Another interest of Victoria Michaels as explained is to see the models be able to manifest alternative careers from their modeling experience, so they have further opportunities when the model clock runs dry.
Aim To Create Modelpreneurs
According to Victoria Michaels “There will be ent dialogue by seasoned entrepreneurs, so we would have a panel discussion of entrepreneurs by business leaders who have actually done so much in their craft, speak and interact with models; Tell them things they can do to sort of widen their scope because we believe that information is liberating.
She continued “When they are informed they will now know I can do xyz. There are models who have what it takes to become millionaires but they don’t know how to go about it, now one has told them you can do xyz. Some of them post images on social media but they could actually influence for brands, but how do they attract brands? they need to position themselves strategically. So they need to know if you have this image you will attract a brand. Brands won’t associate with you because of the image you have created for yourself on social media. You need to know how to attract and this is what the Bootcamp will do for the models.”
Other speakers of the night included Deputy Head of Delegation Pieter Smidt, Herman Ofori Macmillan, Gisella (West Africa’s Ambassador for Swarovski) and career and tax advisor Ayesha Bedwei Ibe.
Victoria called on former colleagues and former models whom she now recognizes as modelpreneurs to join her cut the cake as she officially launched the FCA model bootcamp.
The FCA model bootcamp will be sponsored by Uber, Melcom, Green 8 Capital, Goldcard Resource, Bel Aqua Mineral Water.
