IN CONVERSATION|JUSTIN SOEUM
How did you get discovered?
Family of mine, and friends suggested I look into modeling, so I just went for it. I send my pics that I took myself out to a few agencies, and Nole Marin from Aim Model Management responded back pretty quickly.
What were you doing prior to modeling?
I was studying in college majoring in business management, and also working tables at an Italian restuarant, which I loved to do.
People would be surprised to know that I...
love Spanish-Latin culture and I am not Spanish. I am in love with love and romance. I believe romance is an art that is undersold and under appreciated.
What's your latest obsession?
Success, I think I will be for a long, long time!
Your most prize possession?
My watch is very important to me. I bought it along with my brother's watch that I got him as a gift. I bought him the watch I really wanted, so my watch is a reminder of that, they were both by Michael Kors. It's like my good luck charm!
Growing up, who did you look up to as your hero?
I really looked up to myself as I was growing up, being the oldest I had to find my own sense of direction.
When is the last time you said, "I Love You" to someone?
Last night, I was on the phone with a beautiful girl who is a close friend. She said, "I love you." and I was thrown off but realized it was very sweet so I said it back to her.
Three adjectives that best describes you:
Motivated, Personable, Romantic

If there's a destination or item you would recommend us to check out or visit about your native country/city or town, what would you recommend?
Boston, Massachusetts—I will take you to Boston's North End, Cafe Victoria—It's a cute little expresso and dessert cafe that screams Italia!
If you were given a indie cable show, what type of show would it be? Which song would you choose as your theme song?
A show about exploring Italy's art, restaurants and night life. With a lot of dancing and kissing on camera. Theme song: Con te Partiro by Andrea Bocelli
Craziest thing you ever done:
A car accident, my friend was driving my car on a back road and smashed into a telephone pole going 70mph. I was ejected from the car, through the passenger window (which was closed!). I was med flighted to Boston General and resuscitated!
