Check Out Colin Munie’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Colin Munie.

Colin, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
It started when one day I was getting my hair and makeup done for a photoshoot I had planned with a close family friend. It was towards fitness/fashion. This was the start of my fitness journey so I wasn’t as “big”. I admired the way it felt being in front of a camera, all glammed up fresh from the salon chair.

As I continued to progress in the gym and began to see results I started doing more fitness/underwear shoots in different brands. The results and progress I had seen in my photoshoots pushed me to pursue beginning a modeling career. Ever since I experienced my first photoshoot it allows me to express myself through pictures, let loose and just have fun without worry.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
It has been off and on smooth/rough. There are times when I compare myself to others in the industry or who are trying to make their way up. Comparing myself to those who are achieving more than what I am has led me to think I am not good enough. I believe everyone has their own path to success and others may reach their goal faster.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
Currently, I am a certified nurse assistant working in the Neurology/neurosurgery intensive care unit at a hospital. What I am most proud of in my field of work is how I have overcome my anxiety and nervousness to work in a new and challenging environment.

As hard as it is working in the field I am in, it is definitely rewarding. There are obstacles that I face every day whether it be something I have not experienced yet or a situation that allows me to use critical thinking. I think what sets me apart from others is I am very dedicated to my work and what I do and I am willing to go above my expectations.

Is there something surprising that you feel even people who know you might not know about?
Something that is surprising to me is the brands of underwear I have shot in have noticed my photos and have even shared some of them on their business page, which is a huge goal I have always dreamed of accomplishing.
