Tell us about yourself.

My name is Brooke Nicole Skocelas. I am 21 years old, going on 22. I grew up in Saginaw, Michigan. I attended high school at Nouvel Catholic Central. I am a free-spirited person with and open mind and big heart. I live to serve a purpose. This purpose being to aspire others and help them through spreading positivity and wisdom.  I have a passion for traveling, photography, music, and art. My talents include dancing and writing. I also sing a little and enjoy creating as well as long car rides with deep conversations.

What is your biggest dream?

My most recent and vivid dream would be wanting to travel the world as an independent model. Such as the countries of Italy, Paris, and Dubai. I strive to explore the world for outlook and inspiration. The end goal of my dream would be to deliver a message of internal beauty in people throughout the world.

What does it mean to be your own kind of beautiful?

To be your own kind of beautiful to me means that you are confident in your own skin and most importantly internally confident. You are unique in your own way and love all your flaws and insecurities purely. Being your own kind of beautiful is the beautiful you are on the inside and not on the outside.

Tell us about your modeling experience.

I started out my modeling career for an agency called Beauty in Me. Through this company I have gained runway experience and training, internal and external confidence, photoshoot, and video shoot exposure. I also became one of the brand ambassadors for the company.

What is your dream brand to model for?

My dream brand to model for would either be Juicy couture or Versace! Being on the cover of a Vogue magazine would be amazing!

How would you describe your fashion style?

I wouldn’t say I have a specific fashion style. I would say my fashion style is a mixture between retro/vintage and streetwear. I also love skate brands and bohemian fashion.

How important is self-awareness and confidence to you in your everyday life?

It is important to have these traits in representation of myself to impact others and to be an inspiration and mirror to all who struggle with self confidence and make them aware to never give up on themselves.

What makes you beautiful?

The most beautiful thing about me is my heart. I am always looking to heal and build up broken people. My arms are open to anyone who needs help. I am caring and compassionate and will do anything to help the world and society.

What would you say to another girl your age who is struggling with their confidence?

You got to think to yourself that you were born to look a certain way because everyone was born unique and different. In this society we are all expected to look and dress the same because everyone wants to look like everyone else. I can be confident in myself and accept all my flaws. If you want to change something about yourself to feel more confident it’s not a problem if you are happy in your own skin. Every girl needs to stop comparing themselves to others and realize how beautiful they are individually. Instead of noticing your flaws, notice what makes you unique and stand out in your own beauty.
