How To Prep For The Eml Bootcamp With Geraldine Holdener
Geraldine Holdener was an EML Finalist at last year’s Elite Model Look Switzerland Bootcamp. Today, she is a model with Option Model Management. She shares her tips and advice for the hopeful Finalists taking part in the EML Switzerland Bootcamp 2019.
How should you prepare for the EML Bootcamp?
The most important thing is that you feel comfortable with your walk. It is best to practice at home as often as possible. It is very helpful to make videos of yourself, then watch them and compare them with videos of experienced models. That way you can constantly improve! Girls have the added challenge of high heels, so if you are not used to then, take time to learn how to walk in confidently. And just because boys don't have to wear high heels, doesn't mean they shouldn't practise their walk too! They should wear trainers or formal shoes, and learn to control their movements, too.
What is the biggest challenge when you take part in EML?
That you don’t compare yourself with the other Finalists. Everyone is unique in their own way. Just be yourself and be proud of yourself!
What tips would you like to give the participants?
The best way to take part is to completely be your natural self, so be sure to arrive without makeup. Come with questions of what you would like to ask the jury and coaches, because whether you win or not, you will want to make the most of your time at the EML Bootcamp. And most of all, have fun and enjoy it!
What memories do you have of your time at EML?
There are so many wonderful memories I'll never forget! I have never laughed so much! As well as all the fun, EML made me much more confident and mature, and the people I met became friends for life. I'm forever grateful for that!
