“My goal is to be sure of my purpose in life and always be surrounded by people that I love.”
We had a quick Q&A session with model Makaela Heard whereas Austin, Texas based photographer Edgar Valdes yields images of her to dwell upon.
How do you feel when you see yourself in pictures as a model?
It surprises me every time. To be able to see myself in different settings, moods, and styles awes me. I feel unique and beautiful.
How important is fashion for you?
Pretty important. I love keeping up with the latest fashion trends, and express them in my own way.
What´s the best thing about being a girl/ women?
The best thing about being a woman is knowing how empowered I am. In the U.S. and many other societies around the world, women are seen as inferior and wrongfully stereotyped. It makes being a woman unique, to know how strong and beautiful we are.
Who or what has inspired you the most recently?
God. I’ve come so far, anything is possible.

What´s your goal in life?
My goal is to be sure of my purpose in life and always be surrounded by people that I love.
