Our Hmoodle beauty for the month of April is as good as they come. She is young, charming, intelligent and of course, beautiful. Meet Alexiss Moua, an 18-year-old Hmong beauty from Clovis, California. Currently, she is a student and works part time. She does not wish to stop there, however. She intends to finish school and start new projects: a career in modeling and pursue her education further. She is quick to add that she is not fully invested in modeling; she just intends to try and see how it goes. Apart from being an ardent fan of books, she loves the outdoors. Taking walks and spending time with her loved ones is her forte. She also admits that at times, she feels the need to spent time alone as it clears up her head. She loves fashion, a trait she inherited from her mother and her aunt, a lady she fondly refers to as Lisa.
Hmoodle: Thank you for being here with us and congrats on being selected as the Hmoodle Beauty of the month.
Alexiss: Thank you it is my pleasure to be here and have this great opportunity as Miss April!
Hmoodle: Before we get started, can you help us introduce a 15 second of yourself to those that may have not met you yet?
Alexiss: Well, my name Alexiss Moua I am 18 from Clovis Ca. I live a normal young adult life going to school and having a part time job. I love spending quality time with my friends and family, and most of all myself. I love the outdoors and doing fun spontaneous things randomly. One day I’d wake up and decide to go take a long hike at sky harbor, or take myself on a date. I’m all about positive vibes and yummy food!
Hmoodle: What’s your background in modeling? When and why did you get started?
Alexiss: Growing up I looked up to not only my mom, but my aunties. One of my aunt whose name is Lisa Vang, or you may know her as Loven Lisa. She took part in the first two Revived fashion shows during the Hmong New Year. I remember watching her putting outfits together, picking up all these junkie clothes from the thrift store and piecing them together. After she pieced an outfit together, she’d have my other aunt take pictures of her in her outfit. That’s what really started my modeling hobby. I look at modeling as more than standing in front of the camera. Being a model is like being an inspiration, a symbol of what you’re trying to promote.
Hmoodle: How do you prepare for a modeling shoot?
Alexiss: Before a shoot, I like to stay hydrated and get enough sleep. Of course diet and exercise is equally important, but that should be something you do before and even after a shoot.
Hmoodle: What’s the best part being in-front of the camera?
Alexiss: The best part about being in front of the camera is knowing that a moment of your life is being captured whether a good shot of it, or a terrible one. The best shots are the candid!
Hmoodle: How has modeling changed other aspects of your life?
Alexiss: Modeling has just been a hobby of mine, I enjoy taking pictures and networking with photographers. I guess it has helped me be more friendly and learn the importance of networking and meeting new people!
Hmoodle: What are your goals as a model? How do you see yourself progress in this field?
Alexiss: As mentioned, modeling is just a hobby, but probably one of my goals is just to see how far I can go with it. To progress in this field, maybe just by meeting different artists and collaborating with them.
Hmoodle: You stated that you always had an eye for the fashion industry, who has influenced you the most in the fashion world?
Alexiss: My aunty Lisa once again. She has always loved fashion and what to wear was always her thing! Watching her start literally from the bottom and work her way up is inspiring.
Hmoodle: What makes a woman or man stylish?
Alexiss: Their personality. If you have a forte in fashion but no personality, then you’ll just be dull.
Hmoodle: What’s your favorite outfit from your own closet?
Alexiss: Honestly, my favorite outfit would have to be my sweats, a t-shirt, and a super comfy bra! Either that or my traditional Hmong clothes!
Hmoodle: What makes your city’s fashion unique?
Alexiss: Haha, I think my city’s fashion is unique because there are so many people with different styles and I love how they don’t care about what others think of their outfits.
Hmoodle: What makes you feel sexiest?
Alexiss: Being independent, and doing things on my own! I literally feel like I can take on the world, with the right faith and strong hope, I believe I can.
Hmoodle: Which physical feature do you most often get complimented on?
Alexiss: I get a lot of compliments on my jaw line, I don’t see what the big deal is about it, but I guess if a lot of people are saying that it’s nice then it’s probably a nice looking jaw line.
Hmoodle: What qualities in a man drive you wild?
Alexiss: Leadership. I don’t care if you’re short, or old, young, or bald, as long as you have the ability to run a nation or take on a big task, oh my goodness, super turn on!
Hmoodle: What are you focusing on, apart from modeling, fashion and school?
Alexiss: Besides modeling, fashion, and school, recently I have been focusing a bit on myself. Now I know I may sound selfish, but for the past years I’ve been focused on making the people in my life happy realizing that I am not. So as of right now, I am working on getting to know myself and what I do and do not like.
Hmoodle: What has been your biggest accomplishment in your life to date?
Alexiss: My biggest accomplishment in life to date, honestly I don’t think I have one, I mean I have accomplished many things but I don’t consider them big.
Hmoodle: Where do you see yourself 3-5 years from now?
Alexiss: In three to five years from now, I imagine myself in a big city or decent sized city continuing my education in graduate school for my Doctors in Optometry and hopefully enjoying my life!
Hmoodle: Any message for your fans, supporters and family?
Alexiss: I love you guys!!!! thank you all so much for your unconditional love! once again thank you Hmoodle for this opportunity!
Hmoodle beauties always have something to offer, something that breathes fresh life into the pages here. Alexxis is not an exception. At the age of 18, she pretty much has her life figured out. Her demeanor is appealing; she is the kind of a person you want to keep talking to all day. While her desires and aspirations may seem lofty, her determination tells you something: that she is not just another beautiful face. She is actually far from it, and it is only a matter of time before she clears her education and embarks on her new project. In 5 years, she feels that she will be in a big city, pursuing her doctor’s in optometry. With those dreams, you cannot afford not to believe that she will ace it wherever she goes. Her parting shot to us is that she loves us. We certainly love her too and wish her all the best in the pursuit of her goals.
