Hi Khin Coco, thank you for doing this interview with me! The first time I’ve discovered you were from the Hashtag music video and I was thinking how cool you were in the video, and from then on I discovered your Instagram page and what not. For people who don’t know you, tell me a little bit about yourself?
I’m from Mogok, Myanmar, and have been living in Singapore for the past 8 years. I had graduated with Health Sciences in 2014 and just started my business school last year. I love to travel and have a fun and outgoing personality; so you won’t be feeling any awkwardness of being around me, even if we meet for the first time, haha that’s for sure!
When did you start modelling?
It was in 2014 when I started with some fun shoots for like a year, and then I received an offer from one of the local international agency in Singapore; Upfront Models in 2016.
Do you also do classes or training sessions for people? I think I have seen a video on that before.
Oh yes, I’m an official catwalk trainer of Singapore Fashion Runway Organization for the year 2017.
What does your day consist of? Photo-shoots, makeovers etc?
I’m kind of a busy bee, running between school classes, shoots and my main career as a medical line.
And you get to travel as well! What has been your favourite place so far?
Oh, I’ve just been to Osaka, Japan last January and it was my most awesome trip ever! I loved seeing snow, the food, and everything there.
Who inspires you when it comes to fashion?
I follow YoYo Cao on Instagram (@yoyokulala) and her ootds are just so lovely and always stunning.
Are there any projects you’re working on at the moment?
Yes, I’m part of the ASEAN fashion designer showcase and Singapore Fashion Runway, and ambassador of some clothing brands based in Singapore, and an Ambassador of KB bank Kore, and I will be flying to Korea another time for that project.
Where do you see yourself in the next 1-2 years?
I really want to see myself getting settled in motherland though haha.
Now let’s have some fun and I’ll ask you 5 random questions.
1. Do you have any strange phobias? – I have phobias of caterpillars and hairs in the bathroom or on the bed.
2. Do you believe in Karma? – Of course, I really do.
3. Do you drive? – Yup, since I was 14.
4.Last movie you saw? -Me Before You
5. Any obsessions right now? – Him
Any advice for people wanting to do modelling?
Yes, know how to pose well, dress well, have good attitude, learn the industry and try to promote yourself and get connections.
