Beyond The Lens – Massachusetts model and actress Ivania Nicole has grown on over the years and she continues to tear into her dreams to achieve greater for herself and it shows all over her social media pages. I have been connected with her on Facebook for quite some time and I haven’t really spoken to her for a while, so I thought reaching out to her to do an interview would be great. Enjoy the interview!

Internet Hollywood: Long time no speak Ivania! It’s been a while since we chatted so I thought it would be really cool to do a small interview with you to get some details on some of the things you been working on. How have things been going in 2018? Working on anything new?
Nicole: Thank you for reaching out, I’m currently working on my 9th year producing/director for
Miss Central Massachusetts Pageant 2018 this summer August 5th at Mechanics Hall. Really
excited for it to see our contestants and who will be the lucky 4 winners. Its open to ages 5-27
no experience, no height requirement.
Internet Hollywood: I always admired how talented you are when striking your poses in the photoshoots. Your Instagram has a wide variety of styles that you executed in your collaborations with photographers. What kind of photoshoots are you open to doing with photographers and what theme is your favorite?
Nichole: Thank you! I pretty much just love creating magic most of my shoots I style, and at
times do my own hair/makeup. I also love working with a whole glam team, it all depends on
the projects, and what I’m booked through my agency. One of my favorites which are many is
this recent one in October that just got released by Elegant Magazine, this was extra special to
me since I got published by creatively directing the theme with the photographer (Harris Davey
Jr.), the outfits, my hair/make up, to the location.
Internet Hollywood: One of the coolest accomplishments I saw was when you became Miss Massachusetts United States 2016. How does it feel to experience the moment of winning something like that? Were you surprised when you won?
Nicole: Having the opportunity of being Ms. Massachusetts United States 2016 was literally
something deep down I always wanted, and it was a beautiful rewarding experience that I was
able to share, meet, and most importantly being able to give back. I’m ready to accomplish my
next goals in life.
Internet Hollywood: I also saw that you became the brand ambassador for tourism & wildlife in Uganda! How did that happen!?
Nicole: It happened while I was on the trip, I met and now my friend Enid who works with the
Embassy of Tourism invited me to visit meet the board members and during our meetings they
named me the Ambassador for Tourism here in America for Uganda.
Internet Hollywood: Could you explain a little more about the trip you went on that involved seeing the Great Child Foundation?
Nicole: Another involvement that was introduced to me prior to my trip, and this is something I
will be fundraising through my events, and help the kids by sending books, supplies, clothing,
etc. It was very touching and I can’t wait to do more.
Internet Hollywood: You looked amazing at the Abryan Style & Fashion Awards! Did you had trouble at all picking the dress you were going to wear for the big event?
Nicole: Actually I had no trouble picking out the dress, since a week prior to my trip I had a
fashion show for Daniel Hernandez, and he made the gown perfectly for me to model on the
runway, and after the show was done I asked him; if I could take it with me to Uganda! He said
yes. So that’s how that happened nothing fancy.
Internet Hollywood: You also have your own boutique thing going on as well. What are some of the things that you currently got in stock that you recommend people check out?
Nicole: Yes! Its Exclusive’s located 39 Pleasant St. Worcester, MA. Check us out on Social Media or stop by. Skateboards, jean jackets, dad hats, ect.
Internet Hollywood: Last question; You have been putting a lot of work to build yourself and it definitely shows. One could only imagine how much time and hard work you invested in building yourself. I’m sure a lot of upcoming talent could learn from the things you do. What are some of the do’s and don’ts you recommend beginners follow when they get started to see progress in their early careers?
Nicole: Really just never give up on yourself, surround yourself with good people, learn how
to balance your life. Live, love, and laugh make sure your happy and you’re doing what you love.
Internet Hollywood: Thank you for the interview, Nicole! Keep up all the amazing work!
