For Fitness and International Fashion Model, Bozena Mailloux, her advice for anyone interested in getting involved in the model industry is to keep pushing and trying, especially if it’s what you want for yourself.
After starting her fitness career at the age of 18, Mailloux got her start in the industry when she started working as a Sales and Personal Trainer for a women’s fitness club for a few years.
“I love the fitness industry. And I love getting clients to where they need to be. Training them and guiding them with nutrition was so motivating to me. Made them so happy,” she shares. “Working is a huge passion for me. I always feel better when I’m done and seeing my results.”
Ever since she was a child, Mailloux loved being on the runway and even started taking modeling classes and courses. “So 20 years later I was going through a separation and had a friend who was a photographer and said, “I think I should shoot you and you should go on a modeling website” so I did,” she explains. And baby steps since then, as I slowly got into it on my own at a late age.”
Being featured in many magazines like Viva Glam, In Style, Alegria, Off Town, Vigour, INSC, Pump, Malvie, Socks and Pizza, Maxi, Fuse, Volant, Luxia, and QP Magazine, Mailloux works as an international fashion model but also works as a Sales Consultant for Rafih Auto Group.
“Because I’m European, I am able to travel all around the world and that's what I decided to do,” she says. “I tried out lingerie modeling and it’s something I ended up loving. I was nervous for the first few shots but then I got very comfortable in front of the camera quickly. I love classy and tasteful lingerie but sexy at the same time.” Describing herself as humble, down to earth, and always there for someone, Mailloux shares that what empowers her daily is the love she has for what she is doing. “And my kids of course. Showing my kids that whatever there is you crave for, to do it in your own life and follow your passion and dreams,” she states. “I started my career at such a late age, so showing them that you can at this age while juggling family at the same time and hurdles, this empowers me.”
