Established in March 2018, modelme was born out of a desire to help build a solution for creatives - founder of modelme, Natasha Minter, witnessed and experienced first hand the lack of support, and education that all creatives had to manage.
From March 2018 - March 2020, modelme existed through physical events, from sustainability panel talks to fitness events to mental health workshops - mostly based in London, with a few events in America.
The pandemic bought many challenges, like so many other businesses, however Natasha chose to see it from a perspective of a new opportunity to now achieve a goal she had in her mind since day one - to be able to support and help creatives globally.
modelme runs regular free events from confidence and well-being workshops, men's mental health discussions, fitness workouts, and educational seminars on the business of being a creative - for e.g. managing your finances, arranging and building contracts, negotiating and understanding budgets, and discovering your value.
Mental health and well-being are at the core of modelme. Natasha went through a traumatic experience as a model, and through her mental health recovery, she learnt that models were not the only creatives that massively suffered with their mental health.
The most frustrating thing for Natasha, is the lack of support for creatives mentally. Instead of complaining about it - Natasha continues to build a solution with her team, to add value, support, encouragement and advice to the creative community.
