Q & A
Maureen Wroblewitz, Asia’s Next Top Model and ASUS Brand Ambassador
Just like most of the millennials, I usually have my phone as my tool for browsing on my social media accounts all-day long. And now, I also have the ASUS Zenbook Flip S. I now have something to use whenever I want to watch movies and TV shows during night time. What’s really keeping me busy now are the upcoming endorsements, shoots, and events. Also, I’ll be leaving the country by the end of the month. That being said, I will be having my things packed and ready, and more of mentally-preparing myself of staying in London for three months. It won’t be an easy staying experience for me. In a typical day of a model, or when I have a shoot, I usually wake up early in the morning and doing some perparations to myself such as taking a shower then having some light breakfast. Then, I will go to my shoot but I usually get stuck in traffic somewhere.
And then, once I get back at home, I get to take my make up off since I also have to take care of my skin, especially as a model. And then I try to calm down and relax like watching movies. My life was pretty boring. I just finished high school before moving to the Philippines. I also got my driver’s license in Germany. But back then, I was at the school the entire time so there was nothing really interesting. The opportunity to get into Asia’s Next Top Model (ANTM) just came to me when I arrived here in the country. Of course, I have been very busy since the announcement. I have endorsements and earned recognitions now and then at the streets. A lot has changed and I got busier. But as a person, I just feel more confident, and my lifestyle has changed, but not too much. I just listen to music to calm down and spend some time with my family. I also do binge-watching lot of TV shows like Altered Carbon or Breaking Bad, just a few episodes so I don’t stay up too long. Before modelling, I was extremely shy and was afraid, so I would end up missing huge opportunities thinking I won’t be able to do that.
I would’ve known if I am capable of doing a thing that will make me to contribute or to work hard a lot for it so I’m very thankful.
I almost missed an opportunity to becoming the Asia’s Next Top Model because I was so shy and afraid to get out of my comfort zone. So now, I’m just really happy that I pushed through.
Now with this opportunity of going to London, if I were thinking like the way back then, then I would probably be afraid and resort to cancel it for something. But now, I am seeing it as a great opportunity. Of course, I’m still nervous considering that it’s London. But I just thought that it’s good to take a risk and experience something different that will make me grow both as a model and a person. Well, I have Zenbook Flip S right now and I’m just very happy with it, especially when I use it for watching movies. I just have to flip it, so you just have the screen and you don’t need to have the keyboard. It felt like it’s packed of cool features and you can bring it everywhere.
Its color is royal blue. I just don’t put stickers or anything on it because it looks so good on its own. Let’s leave it as elegant like that. Usually, I am using it for watching movies and browsing on social media. But soon, I’m planning to do some photo editing. I’ll just try to get the right programs for it. But I plan to add and edit some videos soon, since I’m trying to get back to that hobby. I can’t leave without my phone, wallet, keys, makeup — specifically, my lip balm and concealer, and perfume. First, it has to be light because I am always on the go, so it means I would be carying it with me. Then, I look for the stylish one so it can be paired with my look or my outfit of the day (OOTD). And of course, it has to be high-performance and durable. As long as your confident with your skin and clothing, you are a top model.
