We had the good fortune of connecting with Cinthia Tapia Mascorro and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Cinthia, what’s your definition for success?
Success for me is to feel complete and happy with what you do, to always look forward for a work day and feel accomplished in every single way!
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I have been in the modeling industry for over 18+ years and I just love what I do, I’m also a fitness instructor, and a wellness coach. What makes me different from other models is that I’m very dedicated, hardworking and perseverant. I have to work double because I’m petite and now I’m over 30s. Petite models always have it hard because of our height but that has not stopped me. I have done a lot of cool stuff the last past years because I’m always trying, I have never stop persuading my dreams, and if I hear a “no” of course I get sad but not discourage and I try again. I want the world to know that if I did it you also can. Currently I’m Miss Bikini Illinois Fitness 2021
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Well Chicago is a gorgeous, beautiful and big city. Definitely we must visit some landmarks like the Cloud Gate, Navy Pier, pig out in different restaurant because Chicago is a very mix city. You can find all types of foods from different countries. After eating why not a super cool hike, Illinois has the most amazing hiking trails and natural spots to disconnect from the city life like Starved Rock, Waterfall Glen, Devil’s lake, Matthiessen Park etc… etc… also local forest preserves are beautiful for a quick walk and a quick relaxation.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
-Armando my brother, thanks to his toughness and positivity I was able to learn some of these virtues and apply them in my life -Rudy Luna, my fitness coach, he has always the perfect words to lift my spirit up.
-M&J Designs, Mario and Jorge have been the most amazing and supporting friends and international designers that anybody would dream of having them by their side. They are super talented and they have been incredibly supportive with me.
