Who Am I ?


December 2011

1: Who am I?

I’m Hazal Gursoy. I am from New York. I have multiple interests from writing to fashion sketching. But most importantly, I always wanted to be a photo model ever since I was little. Since my childhood, I’ve been told that I have a very exotic look, thus I should definitely model. One of my goals in life is to be a well-known photo model and become an icon of high-end brands as well as hopefully being able to start my own fashion line; it’s my ambition in life. I have modeled for my friends, and have a few photos that I have put up on my Model Mayhem profile.

2: What do you do and what project are you currently working on?

Currently I photo model for my friends whenever I can, and sketch.

3: Where are you from and where are you going?

From Upper East Side, New York City, and I’m striving to get to where I think I deserve to be.

4: Who is your biggest hero?

Myself and those who believe in me.

5: What book is your bible?

The Secret. It confirmed my beliefs of thinking that whatever I wish, or believe in, will always come true no matter what the obstacles are in life. It taught me that learned cynicism is not the way to live.

6: What are some things you love? And some things you hate?

I love seeing the beauty and truth in little things and moments that people don’t see or refuse to see in life. I absolutely hate what people call “concrete thinking.” It just refrains people from seeing different aspects of life.

7: What is your raison d’être?

To be recognized for my future accomplishments and renowned for who I am.

8: What is your favorite color?

Petroleum blue.

9: Who is your favorite comic book superhero?

Wonder Woman.

10: What is your favorite NYC hot spot?

The hole in the walls that people barely step foot into.

11: What turns you on?

Handsome men, cologne, and chivalry.

12: What would the last question of this questionnaire be if you were the one asking?

What will it take to wreck the walls between the truth of life vs. your way of living and view of life?

Hazal is a multi-talented to be photo model who lives in New York City, looking forward to getting contacted by modeling agencies and pursuing a professional photo modeling career soon. She has photo modeled for her friends and has done a few videos for her friends photography and videography classes.
