A: I moved to Bali in the beginning of 2020 after living in China for 8 years. I called China home for the longest time but wanted to see the world and find myself so I ended up on this amazing island!

4. Tell us how you got into
modelling and what you are currently
A: I started modeling here and there while I lived in China.
My first modeling job was for Huawei in 2011 but as a kid I was never really into it.
I liked getting my make up done but not standing in front of the camera and really
bright lights so I distanced myself from the modeling world until 2019.
Before I got signed to an agency that year I had to overcome a lot of doubt
and self criticism as a curvier girl. I believed that no one would want me in front of the camera and I was terrified to go to castings. I got trained by my agent, who was also a model and made myself step out of my comfort zone. Then eventually I scored jobs for Zaful and Shein!
When I got to Bali I never thought I would get so many shoot requests and opportunities but I’m extremely grateful. It’s been so fun and modeling has helped me with self love and confidence. I’m actually now considering that as a career path.
I’m super passionate about inspiring other people to follow their dreams and travel the world.
I love sharing all of my modeling adventures and just my life in general so if you want to see any of that follow me on Instagram (@amina.karimovna) and my YouTube channel (Amina Karimovna)!

5. What’s your proudest moment?
A: My whole life to me is a proud moment haha!
It’s hard to narrow it down to one thing because I’m really proud of myself
for all the decisions I make! But moving to Bali at 19 all by myself is probably
the most recent one!
