A big part of making decisions is determining what our actions and choices have been inspired by. So we asked decision makers from the community to tell us about what they are inspired by.

Chad Sebastien | Modeling and Runway Coach

I am inspired by the ability to watch the models that I came in contact with in the past and present, having the privilege to coach and transformed while focusing on all models’ well-being, empowerment, build self-esteem, and teaching them how to walk confidently on the runway, and creating a lasting runway walk. My passion for the fashion and model industry allows me to transform the “can’t” to the “can.” I take pride in what I do because it is a platform for others to show their beauty and graces; everything that makes you who you are is beautiful. Fashion allows for the expression and becoming of who you are and who you want to be. What I do goes beyond coaching models on how to walk on a runway or pose for a picture. My teaching transforms people that may deal with self-esteem or self-doubt to encourage, to love, and to allow themselves to overcome those mental weights that hold them back. My focus is also on mental health, self-care, and the importance of self-care and giving out resources if needed. Read more>>
