Name: Natalie Suarez Website: Natalie Off Duty

I decided to be a Model/Blogger because:
As a model, I really got to play around with clothes on set. From there, I quickly found out what worked for me and developed my own unique personal style. I started a blog as a way for me to have complete creative freedom. With the blog, I not only share my work as a model, but everything else that I'm interested photography, music, design, and what I wear when I'm "off duty." I still remember, the first magazine that made an impression on me as a kid was: Teen Mag. I was addicted to that thing. Slowly, I grew into Seventeen and Teen Vogue. That's how I became so interested in fashion. My high school years involved a lot of: fun times driving around LA in my friend's cars, being adventurous and crazy. I was also performing a lot with my school's show choir (slightly embarrassing). We sang and danced in competitions. Let's just say there was a lot of glitter, tights, and mean girls. Yet, I was already working as a model in high school. I was a busy bee.
Now I get to work with people who : are creative, intelligent, and some of the most inspiring people I've ever met. I love my job. I also love that I get to travel and meet a bunch of new people...whether it be from traveling to a new city for a shoot, or going overseas to attend fashion weeks. When I was young I had a crush on: Michael Jackson. It was totally weird. Then it went to Shia Labeouf. Now, I'm digging scruffy Adrien Brody types. I now live in : NYC People think this of me : What bothers me is that people probably think of me as this perfect person...which I'm far from. I'm as normal as can be! I think I can be friends with almost anyone.
We are almost done here I love : really good food. Indian, Vietnamese sandwiches, Malaysian. I love spice! Hard to believe as a model though huh? If you could leave us with one thought, what would it be? 2012 is going to be bomb. It's only the beginning :)
