ERIKA, WHEN DID YOU GET INTERESTED IN THE MODELING INDUSTRY?
When I was 14 years old, I was in Acapulco and they asked me if I wanted to be part of a fashion show at the hotel where I was staying. Of course, I said yes! It was an amazing experience, and after that, I came back to Monterrey and talked to my mom about it. My mother has always been my number one supporter and my inspiration for all the things I’m doing in my life, may she rest in peace. After this brief modeling experience, I joined the (designer) John Casablanca and this is when I said to myself, this is for me!
HOW DID YOU DECIDE WHEN IT WAS TIME TO START YOUR OWN MODEL AGENCY?
(I actually decided to change from having a model agency to being a model trainer). When I started working on TV doing weather segments, many young girls asked me how hard it was to do that, so I started teaching them how you need to present yourself on TV and how to speak in public. It was amazing how they loved the way that I was teaching them, and so, I decided to start teaching modeling classes in 2010.
WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BE A TRAINING MODEL AT EDMA EVENTS & MODELING?
You don’t need any experience to be part of our team. We work with our staff to help them grow professionally and to help them develop modeling skills by getting them to try new modeling ideas and develop confidence in themselves as trainers.
WHICH MODEL WOULD YOU HAVE DREAMED OF DISCOVERING?
I admire Adriana Lima, because for me, she is one of the most beautiful models in the world. She’s very natural and classy. She would be the one.
HOW IMPORTANT ARE SOCIAL NETWORKS AT EDMA EVENTS & MODELING?
We not only participate in fashion events and pageants, but we visit our communities as well. We do this, for the most part, so that our staff can understand the beautiful thing about helping other people such as in nursing homes, hospitals, charity events and many more.
WHAT IS YOUR VISION FOR THE FUTURE?
I would like to have more events in Texas, of course, because (this is where we are located), but we always want to visit New York for fashion week every year because New York is the main hub for the fashion industry and famous designers.
