Nathan Maillard exudes mental confidence and has never experienced body image issues. He currently resides in Fribourg, Switzerland.
Where do you reside: I live in Fribourg, Switzerland (the French-speaking part).
What’s your definition of confidence? Confidence for me is not “They will like me.” Confidence is “I’ll be fine if they don’t.”
Have you ever had body image issues? No.
Dream job or gig? In the future, I’d love to shoot for some big brands like Calvin Klein and BOSS; it’s definitely one of my modeling goals.
Best modeling experience? I’ve had some amazing experiences as a model. I take every shoot I do very seriously and professionally, but if I had to pick one, my highlight so far would be the Footlocker contract I had in Australia. It was a six-month contract, and they extended for another six months. They [Footlocker] was my first paid shoot, and it felt great. Seeing myself in the windows of every Footlocker store I walked past was an indescribable feeling.
Favorite quote? I love many quotes, every time I post a photo I spend hours to find the perfect quote. My favorite quote would be: “Your life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” It’s when you get out of the place that you are comfortable that good things really happen.
Best thing about where you grew up? The best thing about living in Switzerland is living in the center of Europe. It is quick and easy to get to any other country.
