Where are you from?
I’m from a small beach town called Santa Rosa Beach, Fl.
What does a typical day in the life of Emme Martin look like?
Usually every day is different. But typically my days consist of cuban coffee, boxing class (sometimes), going to a casting or a photo shoot, and then hanging out with my friends at the beach or something.
How did you end up being scouted as a model?
I was scouted when I was fourteen from a local modeling competition in my home town. I won the modeling contest and signed with my first agency.
What has been your favorite project to work on?
My favorite project to work on was probably a cover shoot I did for VIE magazine. It was circus themed and I got to wear retro bikinis while riding a carousel and eating ice cream.
What do you like to do on your off days?
I usually end up going to the beach, or hanging out with my friends. We all are into getting together and cooking dinner and watching the bachelor.
You obviously have a rocking bod, any fitness tips to share?
For me, I just try and stay active throughout the day and eat pretty clean. I’m obsessed with weird health foods like green juices, and ginger shots. I also try to go to boxing 3 three times a week. I like to stay healthy 80% of the time so I’m still able to have cheat days because I loveee ice cream.
Whats your favorite part of being a model?
It sounds cliche but really the people I meet are the best part, everyone in this industry is really creative and unique and it makes life more interesting.
Whats your top destination to visit and why?
Definitely the British virgin islands in the Caribbean! The beaches there are incredible and it’s so relaxing. I love having a tan and not having to wear makeup or do my hair when I’m on vacation.
What advice would you give to new models?
I would say to stay true to yourself and not let someone mold you into something you’re not. So many girls think they have to be a certain way but I always find I do the best when I’m myself and feel comfortable. I would also tell them to sign with an agency that has a vision for you. It’s so important your that your agency pushes you and believes in you because then you will too.
Describe your style?
I would say my style is casual cute haha. I feel best when I’m in something I feel comfortable in. I love wearing basics like jeans and a graphic tee and then spicing it up with a cute necklace and cool sneakers.
Who inspires you?
First person that comes to mind is my mom. She the sweetest and funniest person I know. She always tells me to work hard for what I want and to stay true to myself.
Name some items on your bucket list?
I have always wanted to live in Australia. I am actually talking with my agency right now about going there in September! I love traveling and seeing other cultures
What are your favorite tunes you are listening to right now?
Right now I’m listening to lots of Hip hop haha it’s my fav. My roommates and I love Travis Scott, 2chainz, and 6lack. My favorite song right now is What I might do by Ben Pearce though. :)
The best piece of advice you have ever received and from who?
My grandmother would always tell me not to rely on anyone else. I was raised to be very independent, this is the best advice I ever received because it is so important, especially with modeling, to be able to support yourself and be on your own.
