IN CONVERSATION|STEPHEN PANDIS
How did you get discovered?
It was through my sister in Tampa. I was scouted by a local agency called Benz.
What were you doing prior to modeling?
I used to work in construction, flipping houses and reselling them afterwards.
People would be surprised to know that I...
was an junior Olympic marksman. I placed second nationally in a junior Olympic match in Florida. My team was nationally ranked 5th.
What's your latest obsession?
Becoming successful in modeling or something else. I want to have security in my life. I have a drive to be successful and I won't let anyone stop me.
Your most prize possession?
My grandfather's rifle. It's an old lever action from the 1800's and it means a lot to me because he gave it to me before he died.
Growing up, who did you look up to as your hero?
My best friend, Hayden. He is always been very smart and taken challenges head on. He is an exchange student from Slovakia, he inspires me to be the best I can be.
When is the last time you said, "I Love You" to someone?
A girl named Sierra, she was a girl I used to have a thing with back in Florida but unfortunately, it didn't work out and I hid my feelings until recently. Stupid decision. I said it to my mom last night too!
