One On One With Rachael Kelley

What was the motivation behind starting your blog?
I’ve always been a visual person with strong opinions and emotions. I love art and being creative so I started modeling as an opportunity to express myself. Social media is the perfect way to create and put yourself out there for the world to see and you get to work with other creatives while doing that.

What is one key you give to someone who needs to stay focused?
You will hear no a thousand times but what about the one person that says yes. I want to design clothes for you, I want you to be in this commercial, etc.. it’s always worth the no’s.

Did you grow up with a large family?
I grew up in a very small family, I am a only child and that’s how I learned to be creative to fill that void of being alone all the time.

Do you ever feel like quitting?
I have felt down about my career at times but no, I would never quit after all the time, the effort I’ve put into it.

What’s the biggest city you’ve been to?
The biggest city I’ve been to is Tokyo. I miss that place. It was amazing.

What’s your most favorite city to visit?
I can’t say I have a favorite place to visit. I love to travel, every city is unique and amazing in its own way.

Did you ever have any doubters about your blog when you started?
I can get insecure if I am explaining myself in the right way or that people can truly understand me. People didn’t always support in the beginning but that’s life. I have plenty of support now.

How can we follow you online?
You can follow me through my Instagram @rachkelley or my modeling website where I post blogs
