Name: Megan Welsh

Instagram: @megan_welsh

1. Where are you from?

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I moved to Windermere, FL at four years old and have lived here ever since.

2. What does a typical life of Megan look like?

A typical day in my life is waking up somewhat early to get in a workout before I start my day. During the day I get all of my online school work done, then I usually chill with friends before working at night.

3. How did you end up being scouted as a model?

Initially, a photographer from my hometown referred me to an agency in Tampa, which I worked with for a year. Recently I sent pictures through Instagram to NEXT Miami and was signed to the agency after an interview!

4. What do you like to do on your off days?

I really enjoyed working with Disney and Sea World. They gave me the opportunity to be an extra on the TV show The Middle and shoot an ad for Coca-Cola.

5. You obviously have a rocking bod, any fitness tips to share?

I feel eating healthy is the most important aspect of staying fit. It's also important to mix strength training in with cardio for a leaner body image.

6. Whats your favorite part of being a model?

My favorite part of being a model is traveling and exploring new places. As well as meeting new people and learning about fashion.

7. Whats your top destination to visit and why?

My top destination to visit is the Maldives in South Asia. It's a beautiful tropical island in the middle of the Indian Ocean. One of my favorite places in the world to be is at the beach so being able to travel here would be the absolute beach getaway.

8. Who inspires you?

My parents both inspire me to be whatever I want to be. They encourage me and help me find success in all that I do. I look up to them as role models and strive to be as hardworking and successful as them.

9. The best piece of advice you have ever received and from who?

The best piece of advice I received was from my Dad who would tell me, "The fault is not in our stars but in ourselves that we are underlings." This means that I should not just go through life waiting for fate to make things happen but to make them happen for myself.

10. Whats your favorite quote?

"Shoot for the moon, even if you miss you'll land among the stars" - Norman Vincent Peale

This quote means that it's okay to set your goals high because even if you don't achieve it other goals will be achieved along the way and you'll still be somewhat better than where you started.

Alexis Michaud shows you her Wild side

1. Where are you from?

I'm from a small town called Centerville Ohio.

2. What does a typical day in the life of Alexis look like?

I don't really have "typical days", I despise routine. Every day is different; new goals, new dreams, new people, new ideas, new challenges. 

3. How did you start modeling?

In Ohio modeling isn't really an option. I had to go out and take it myself. I'm thankful for that because it allowed me to learn so much about myself that I didn't know! I learned what I want, what I don't want, never EVER give up and to NEVER take shit from anyone.

4. What has been your favorite project to work on?

I honestly can't say I have a favorite project, not because I don't like my work but because every day is new. ill have a favorite photo or shoot or show one day then the next day have a completely different favorite. Each day I grow, I get better and better, and I have new favorites.

5. You obviously have a rocking bod, any fitness tips?

I can't-do routine so each workout is different. I get bored easily so I like to make sure my workout is a challenge every time. I hate running so you can forget that lol. I do Yoga for days my soul needs it. Pilates for when my body needs it. Boxing for when my temper needs it and weights and some sort of cardio for when I just have to go to the gym to get it done lol. other than that I eat pretty healthily ( most of the time) I have a thing for tacos, whiskey, and homemade pizza. but not in that order haha. so at the end of the day life is about balance. One day ill eat all veggies and drink lots of water and the next day ill order taco bell through post mates and I'm definitely on my third beer (Thanks, Ohio).

6. Whats your top destination to visit and why?

My top destination.. hmm as of now (because I don't know where my adventures will take me next) would be India. I moved there after I graduated high school literally right after). and it was the best decision I have ever made. it changed me as a person and for the better. I learned to appreciate the little things in life and I learned my strengths and weaknesses. I learned that life is too short to be negative or doubtful. Everything happens for a reason and to never ever take anything for granted. I learned an entirely new culture and it made me so happy to see others way of life. It was so inspiring!

7.  What are your favorite tunes you are listening to right now?

 I'm m convinced I was born 30 years too late, haha I love old music. ACDC, guns n roses, Pink Floyd, Aerosmith, the Eagles, and then I enjoy painting to John Mayer, red hot chili peppers, to goo goo dolls. and occasionally old-school hip-hop. some new songs are ok but I always find myself going back to the meaning of lyrics and not the same mainstream song they play over and over and over again about "getting money" "do you know who I am". just not for me.

8. What is the best piece of advice you have ever received and from who?

The best piece of advice I've ever received was when before I moved to India I was debating on it and she looked at me and said, "lex just go". She wanted me to live life to the fullest and chase dreams and see the world, and really try to experience it the way others are too afraid to do. I've used that little phrase in just about every situation of where I was afraid and was unsure about my dreams and choices to traveling and modeling and adventures that I've come across. ill be in my head and think,  "just go". and here I am moving forward staying positive even when things go wrong.  

9. Whats your favorite quote?

My favorite quote.... hmm that's a tough one I have so many but the one I've been focusing on recently is:

 "Your profession is not what brings home your weekly paycheck, your profession is what you're put here on earth to do, with such passion and such intensity that it becomes a spiritual calling." Vincent van Gough  

10. Describe your style?

Whatever my mood is really, haha. I usually live in a bikini but occasionally ill get dressed up. I love fashion but I love unique things. I'm more into that jewelry you get at a little market that was handmade by the mountain man down the street. one day ill feel like jeans and a band tee the next day I'm feeling extra and am in heels and a red dress ready for a good time!
