We had the good fortune of connecting with Raluca Pintea and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Raluca, why did you pursue a creative career?
I decided to purse a career in modeling because since I was little I have always wanted to be someone others can look up to and be inspired by. The same way I looked up to other models and my dream to become that pushed me to prove to my self that I can do It.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Modeling has been a dream of mine and now that I get the opportunity to be featured in magazines, runway shows and to be noticed by a variety of brands just by doing what I love is really a blessing. The road is not easy and I still have so much to learn and to improve on. My goal is to inspire others to never give up on their dreams because even if they seem impossible, challenging or hard to reach you can do anything you set your mind to! I got to where I am today because I pushed myself I took all the criticism I took all the negative comments and all of the doubt and I proved to myself that I can do anything. I want the world to know that I am unstoppable I will keep pushing for what I want I will continue to work hard, to inspire and to be amazing at what I do, I will stay humble and respectful. What sets me apart from others is my drive, I think that one door that closes leads to one that opens and I will continue to challenge myself and put myself out there for the world to see.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Arizona is beautiful in so many ways, some local spots that I love to visit are Pop and Tea in downtown Phoenix. They are known for their diamond bars and delicious smoothies. Also, Daily Drip Coffee And Deserts is one of my favorites for sweets and coffee located in Glendale. Sedona is a great place to go if you are trying to get away from the heat there are so many breathtaking places to visit there. The outlets at Anthem is a great place for shopping and hanging out with friends.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
