Such an absolute honour to have you on FHM! What are you currently working on? I am currently working on building my career in modeling and getting my name outthere and taking as many opportunities as possible that come my way that will help mebuildmy platform and career. I know the modeling industry is not easy and it takesdedication to make it to where I want to be, so taking small opportunities that willhelp me develop new skills for bigger achievements.

What is your idea of a really good time? Traveling to new places with family and friends and making new memories.

Top 3 best moments of your career? The best moments of my career so far are : having a billboard in Times Square, beingcrowned the overall Queen in Miss Fashion Global, and beingpublished in 5magazines.

What would you say is your signature look? My signature look would definitely have to be a high slick back ponytail.

What is the fastest way to get a smile on your face? Seeing someone who is positiveabout life.

What are some of your favourite outdoor activities? Horseback riding, skiing , being a tourist in my own city.

3 ultimate deal breakers when it comes to men? Disrespectful, lazy, humorless.

Never have I ever…Been skydiving

Top 3 myth busters when it comes to models?

1. “Being a model is easy”-when people say this I always like to respond as it may look easy until you are in our shoes and see how competitive the industry really is.

2. “You get to keep the clothes you model”- this is not true at all. It is very rare you will see us walk out of a shoot or a show with the clothes we just modeled.

3. “Models get everything paid for”- starting out you’re modeling career is like starting a new business. It’s a very big investment. When you first start out nothing comes easy and it’s usually you that pays for most of your flights or portfolio etc.

What is the best way to approach you as an admirer? I would say the best way to approach me would have to be being confident (but not cocky) and eye contact. Being confident shows me that you’re positive, have greatenergy, and could bring a lot to the table. Eye contact is great because is shows you’re interested in me but also, you’re listening to what I have to say too.

Where can our readers catch up with you and stay updated with your work? I post the most about my work on my Instagram @alex_deeeks but I am also working on building my platform on tik tok now so you can follow me there too.@alex_deeks.

We are so happy to have gotten to know you a little bit! Any last words out there for our readers? I would like to say every person has a purpose in life and to never give up on your goals or dreams because you can achieve anything you put hard work and dedication into! No matter how hard life gets; each day is a chance for you to pick yourself back up and have a positive mindset for the day and future.
