Vancouver Model: Chelsea Seward

Default Image

Chelsea was born in Maple Ridge, later moved to Richmond and now loves every minute of living with her best friend in beautiful Vancouver. She has been a hip-hop dancer for 11 strong years now with a background in jazz and Broadway burlesque as well as modeling and acting for 2 years. She currently works in a real estate office full-time and teaches dance classes. Aside from her busy dance and work life, she loves to listen to her favorite country tunes, watch back-to-back sitcoms, and just relax at home with a glass of wine.

Vancity Buzz: When did you decide you wanted to get into modeling?

Chelsea: Since I can remember I had always dreamed of being a famous model, not just a model, I had big dreams. I watched modeling TV shows and fashions show and simply admired the way those women looked and the confidence they had that I greatly lacked. One day a few years back my aspiring photographer girlfriend asked if I was interested in being a test model for her and after seeing those pictures and having so much fun playing with different outfits and looks….well the rest is history. I realized I could express who I am through modeling and I can help someone else express their desires and feelings through me modeling. I love the passion those in this industry carry and the hard-work put into a perfect image!

VcB: Describe a typical day off?

Chelsea: I don’t really get a day off 😛 …I work my Monday to Friday office job and I choose to dance and teach dance all weekend! However, occasionally when classes are over , I’m one to shop around down on Robson or West 4th, hit a local restaurant or Sushi Bar for lunch, and to settle the night off, wine, snacks, and movies! I’m a pretty simple girl!

VcB: Where do you see yourself in 5 years

Chelsea: I can honestly set in stone that within the next 5 years I would like to have positively established myself within the modeling, dancing, and business industry and create a foundation for on-going success, personally and financially. On a lighter side, I am a very spontaneous and adventurous person which means I choose to plan my life as my cards are dealt, I leave windows open for opportunity.

VcB: What do you like best about Vancouver?

Chelsea: Vancouver accepts me for who I am! 😛 This city has such a extensive range of personalities, styles, and professions that whatever I choose to do whether it be a runway model or an astronaut, I will have a support system behind me and the information and schooling I may need will be in arm’s length reach for me to stretch out to… Vancouver offers boundless opportunity for those who want it!
