We are thrilled to have our star on the rise, Shyendra Chandrasena, as our September Model of the Month. From fitting with clients like Calvin Kleins and Bombas, Shyendra continues to show love and devotion to the industry!
1. Where you are from?
Palm Springs, California
2. What you are into… studies, hobbies, special skills etc..?
Well for starters I am currently studying theatre, which has been so exciting as I am delving into my passion for acting and writing. I love to play basketball and football whenever I have the time to do so. Traveling is also a passion of mine, I have had the privilege to visit so many places. My favorite countries that I have visited are Croatia, Japan and Oman. I volunteer with Veteran organizations whenever I get the chance to, taking into account that I was in the Coast Guard for 4 years, stationed in DC.
3. Favorite clients from the biz?
Taking into account that I am fairly new to the industry, I am happy to say that amongst my favorite clients Calvin Klein is one of them! I also really enjoyed doing Fit for Bombas and doing a campaign for Smile Direct Club.
4. Dreams/goals any thing else of interest (any other dream clients?)?
My dreams are to have an original play by me produced and to star in something I have written. I would love to continue modeling for more brands and expand my portfolio.
5. Career highlights?
Definitely seeing my face and smile on billboards for Smile Direct Club all over New York was amazing. Being able to be a part of Calvin Klein’s mens denim fit clinic was pretty cool too!
6. How did you get into modeling ?
I got in to modeling because a friend told me I should try. I never saw myself modeling before but now that I am completely immersed in it, I am in love.
