Having started modelling after secondary school, there is no looking back for 25-year-old Carolyn QiQi.
“My first modelling experience came through Friendster,” recalled QiQi, who was born in Kuala Lumpur.
“I was asked to model a saree for an Indian bridal show during Deepavali.”
Though she initially juggled part-time modelling with studies, QiQi later had to drop out of university because of financial difficulties and turned to full-time modelling.
“Aside from the runway shows and photoshoots, I also teach runway modelling to children at a modelling academy,” she added.
She has been an instructor to child models for nearly two years.
Though she enjoys her work, QiQi also wants to start her own business.
As she enjoys working with children, she is toying with the idea of setting up a daycare centre.
“When I’m not on the catwalk or in front of the camera, I love to spend time with my friends just hanging out at cafes and relaxing,” said the sociable QiQi
If you could go on holiday to any place in the world, where would you go?
“I would like to visit Egypt. There’s no real reason, but I just feel like it is a nice place to go.”
If you became rich overnight, what is the first thing you would do with your money?
“Donate to animal welfare associations such as SPCA, because I really love animals.”
Name one extreme activity you would like to try, given the chance?
“I would give bungee jumping a shot.”
If a genie granted you three wishes, what would you wish for?
“Firstly, I would wish that I was more intelligent. I would also wish to be even more beautiful – I think this is something that every girl wants.
And last but not least, I would also wish for a good husband!”
