In 2014 she won Miss Publicity, Miss People's Choice and Miss Charity.

She also represented England in Miss Globe  2015. 

Read our exclusive interview with her and don't forget to follow her modeling page here -

Melvi -  First of all thank you so much for approving this Interview. Tell us what are you doing these days? What things are keeping you busy apart from modelling?
Louise - You're welcome, Thank you for the opportunity to be apart of it. Outside of modelling I am a personal trainer. I teach Pilates and mentor people to lead a healthy lifestyle. This is extremely important in being a model; looking after one's self.

Melvi - Can you tell us more about your modeling journey? How did you started all this?
Louise - I first started my modelling journey back in 2010 by accident. I got conned into buying some very expensive prints from a "free photo shoot". Once I had a few prints, friends and family saw my potential. I've always been involved in performing arts, especially ballet dance, so decided to contact agencies and go to castings. From there I've been able to build my portfolio.

Melvi - Going through your profile we found out that you have won many awards and titles. How was the feeling when you won those? Is there something more you want to achieve from here?
Louise - I have won "UK's Dazzling Beauty" from my first pageant in 2012. I have also won "Miss Charity" at a pageant called "Face of the Globe" in London in 2013 and Surrey in 2014. I have also been lucky enough to represent my country twice, in World Bikini Model 2014 and Miss Globe 2015. I feel so proud and grateful to have won these awards, especially for my charity fundraising.

Melvi - How important is to win awards and titles in this field? And what does it really means to you?
Louise - It is important to win awards, but more important to impact people's lives and make a difference. That's why I continue to model and to be a beauty queen, to inspire others.

Melvi - Beside modeling what are the other things you have been involved?
Louise - I have been in the media, both in newspapers and on television, sharing my story of how I got into pageants and how they have improved my confidence. I have been to events such as beauty exhibitions, and was a volunteer for a celebrity charity football match "AfCar the Game".

Melvi - If there's no photo shoot and other things to do then how you will spend your day? And what kind of environment you look for in your shoot?
Louise - I spend time investing in myself by getting the right training. I network with people in the industry, and I am a member of a camera club photo studio in London. I like to learn about photography and make up. I go to the gym, go to dance classes when I can and I love to swim. I also enjoy go karaoke, cinema, and spend time with friends, family and boyfriend.

For photo shoots, it can be anywhere; in the woods, in the studio, or even in the water! Most importantly the people I work with must be easy to get along with and are passionate about what they do.

Melvi - How do friends and family responses to your work and what do you want to accomplish for them from this industry?
Louise - My friends and family know how determined and hard working I am, so I know I make them proud. I would love to buy my family houses and so they do not worry about having to live from pay check to pay check.

Melvi - How would you describe your style? What is fun and interesting about your style?
Louise - My style is very girly, and I don't always conform to current fashion. When I'm in London I love to wear jumpsuits, skinny jeans and leather jackets. I also love finding vintage styles from my mums' wardrobe and making it work for me! 

Melvi - How much you have progressed yourself in this field and how did modeling has changed other aspects of your life?
Louise - I still have a long way to go. I would like to be a widely published model and be in more fashion shows. As I am only 5 foot 5, I would like there to be more high fashion opportunities for petite models like myself. 

Modelling has made me a more confident person, and helped me develop my people skills. I have also learnt to be more patient, tolerant and understanding. Especially as I have traveled to China and Canada for pageants, I have changed in the way I no longer take small things for granted when at home.

Melvi - What is your opinion on the current state of modeling around the world? Do you think modeling can sustain a smooth living and can be taken as a very serious profession?
Louise - There are different types of modelling and although very challenging to make a long career with a smooth living, it is achievable. From bridal shows to promoting products, there are many types to get involved with.

Melvi - How much do you believe in this, success depends more on what you know than whom you know?
Louise - That is a tricky one! I wouldn't be headed where I am now without making the right contacts. However, my knowledge contributes to success.

Melvi - What will be your piece of advice to new comers? If they tries to contact you would you like to share your experience with them?
Louise - My first advice would be invest time and courses if you're serious. Hire a coach, manager and make sure you're working well with your agency. Ask any questions if you're not sure. Secondly is never give up. You never know how close you are to a pot of gold!

Melvi - Is it important to have role model in our life? If then who is your role model and why are they yours role models?
Louise - Yes it is very important. My role model is my mum. She is independent, strong, patient and kind. She has always been there for me. Those qualities are far more important than any celebrity could influence me to be a better person.

Melvi - Name at least 5 things that we don't know about you or didn't came up in this interview.
Louise - I am left handed.
I am a Libra.
I love cats! A cat person more than dog person.
My dads family are from Singapore.
My favorite sports brand is Nike. Pink Nike trainers are my favorite shoes!

Melvi - Lastly, this space is for you. You can say anything here like, message to our readers, or things that we forgot to ask or you felt like sharing with us.
Louise - Thank you so much for featuring me!

Change Yourself!

“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself. - Leo Tolstoy"

Today, if we turn on the radio, TV or look at the home feeds of social network and there are monotonous people who's always seeking for Change. This world of ours, this land of beauty is filled with problems. Think about the hundreds of thousands of people dying each and every day. Think about the poverty and hunger children have to face. HIV, Cancer. Racism, Sexism, Hatred of Homosexuals. Riots, Rebellions, Terrorism. Rape, Murder, Suicide. Drug Addicts, Abortion or No Houses. Beside these everybody wants a better economy, but they are not willing to share in the financial hit. They wants better institutions for their children, but nobody wants to re arrange the system and module of teachers and role of parents. They wants lower health care costs, but nobody wants to endure the changes to medicine, law and bureaucracy which will take to get it. People wants fuels, vegetables, cloths etc. at lower price, but nobody wants to radically shift their patterns of consumption. Nobody's adopting the changes in lifestyle and behavior that will actually drive us into happier life. It's funny to realize that everybody wants to own the result, but nobody wants to own the process.  

What is preventing us; why are we not taking an initiative; What is stopping people from taking that first step of change; Failure or fear? If such are the things then Solomon Johnson once said, “May your Fear turn to be your Freedom, your Failure turn to Fortune, and your Future turn to Fame.” In short, we all have the potential to change the world. We are forgetting that we are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. We are here to enrich the world. 

We are not blind to go unnoticed from what's happening in front of our eyes based on our opinions and mentality. We can easily figure out which things are good and bad. And we want to change bad things, right. So, if we want a change, we first need to become the change. We are not just one person, we are a whole entire being. We should stop considering ourselves perfect person so, we can look into ourselves too. Rather than rejecting ourselves as unchangeable beings, we can guide our change in the desirable direction by developing new habits. We can change the world one habit at a time. We first make our habits, and then our habit will make us.

This world needs people who are not content with the status quo and are willing to make a difference with themselves and the world.

A leader is someone who is willing to own not just the result, but the process. - Vishal Vof

Melvi - If there's no photo shoot and other things to do then how you will spend your day?
Corpse - I might be look new ideas for photo shoot or I just gonna watch videos on Youtube all day.

Melvi - How do people responses to your work?
Corpse - I am amazed with the supporters I have and yes, there are few people to who disgusts my works and hard efforts but, that won't effect me.

My photographer Rauno loves to work with me and soon he is going to exhibit his pictures works that includes me and some other models too.

Melvi - How did you progress yourself in this industry? Would you like to share few words on this?
Corpse - At the beginning, it was more like a hobby to me but, I came so far that I cannot stop here.

I remember the time when i first saw him in the TV and then i told my mom : ''Mommy if i grow up I'm gonna be just like him'' and it didn't took so long. When I was 14 I already wanted to dressed differently also got my own view on things. So I must say Marilyn Manson. Thank you for being my role model and show me the way who I really am.

Interview with Martina "Morty" Murer of The Silence Between Us

Melvi caught up with beautiful Martina "Morty" Murer of The Silence Between Us. She plays keyboard in this Venice based melodic deathcore band and they are going to release their debut EP this October 13.

Official band page - (

Melvi - What are you doing nowadays?
Morty - I'm studying to become a graphic designer, so I'm focusing both on music and school.

Melvi - Can i get the story of your band and biography? What is the meaning of
The Silence Between Us exactly means to the band?
Morty - Our name represents the silence between human beings and the constant affliction caused by their unsuccessfull lives.

Melvi - What are the lyrical themes you use in your song? gore, horror,
politics, anti religion etc..
Morty - We write introspective lyrics in view of the things around us, in fact our main themes are emotions and fears, we talk about ourselves though our music, and that's really important to me because I feel like I can get rid of all my negative thoughts putting them in every note I play.

Melvi - How it feels to be in a metal band esp. when its a male dominant place?
And for how many years you are in this scene?
Morty - That's an interesting question. I've never liked playing with other people, but meeting Salvatore, and then the other members, has probably been the best thing of my whole life, because they aren't only "my band", they're my family. They're amazing friends and very talented musicians, they're teaching lots of things and they're helping me growing up, both as a keyboard player and a person. Being a girl never bothered me that much, and luckily I've never had bad experiences. Sometimes I feel like people treat me differently just because of it, but most of the times they're simply more nice or polite because they see me as a quiet person and they don't want to annoy or scare me. I started listening to metal when I was about 10 years old, and it has influenced me a lot, even though I mostly listen to other musical genres such as jazz, post-rock and avant-garde/experimental stuff.

Melvi - Which are the bands that have influenced your band most?
Morty - I think Betraying the martyrs, Make them suffer, Carnifex and In Flames are our main influences, but we always try to keep our style anyway, we are The Silence Between Us, and we want to sound only like The Silence Between Us.


Melvi - What are the future plans of TSBU? any tours, releases, recordings etc.
Morty - Our EP will be out the 13th October, and we'll surely play in some gigs in our area with other bands, we'll keep you updated!

Melvi - What is your opinion on sites posting band's Materials without asking
Morty - Posting any kind of material online without permission is bad, it should be considered a crime, so... ASK before posting, most of the times bands will give you a positive reply!

Melvi - How do you feel about the classifications in metal? like deathcore,
metalcore and other sub genres..
Morty - Classifications in music are ok, but sometimes close minded people use them to bash bands and artists. If you don't like a certain genre, it doesn't mean it sucks, maybe it just isn't meant for you.

Melvi - In general term metal isn't appreciated by Society what do you have to
say on this?
Morty - That's sad but true. When I was younger I had to deal with lots of ignorant people making fun of me, and sometimes saying really bad things just because I used to wear dark clothes and hang out with metalheads. They began labeling me as a weird girl and a volountary outcast. Growing up I became less shy and weak and I started fighting the bullies, nowadays everything's fine and I have lots of amazing friends. Society will surely judge you if you're into metal, but you can be strong enough to beat any prejudice.

Melvi - Ok, what do you want to tell those peoples who rips off the band hard
work and illegally downloads their music or pirates their cds/merchs and
sells them?
Morty - It's an horrible thing to do. As a person who owns a huge collection of cds and merch, I always support my favourite artists because they deserve it. Some people have no idea of how much work there's behind a song, and if they do and still keep stealing music they're just heartless and I have no respect for them.

Melvi - Is it hard surviving in metal Scene?
Morty - It's really hard since there are plenty of amazing bands around... If you want to become important and "known" in the scene you need to practice a lot to improve, it's hard to survive, and sinking is very easy.

Melvi - Metal has to be underground or metal has to go mainstream, what's your
Morty - I don't care if something's mainstream or underground, as long as I like it I'll listen to it!

Melvi - What is your opinion on the current state of metal?
Morty - There are way too many things to say about it... It's an amazing genre, sadly ruined by its own listeners.

Melvi - Which is the album you want to take to your grave?
Morty - Difficult question: I'd say "March of Ghosts" by Gazpacho or "Harmlessness" by The World Is A Beautiful Place And I'm No Longer Afraid To Die.

Melvi - Can you recommend us some good bands from your country for our
Morty - Sure! I recommend you to give a listen to Forgotten Tears, Despite Exile, Novembre, The Foreshadowing, Helslave and Breath To Die. If you like folk and power, you'll surely also like Kanseil, Elvenking, Rhapsody Of Fire, Spellblast and Vexillum.

Melvi - Support Metal, how much you agree on this quote?
Morty - On a scale from 1 to 10? 100000!

Melvi - Where do our readers can buy and listen TSBU and any other merchs?
Morty - YouTube, Spotify, and Bandcamp.

Melvi - Do you remember your first show with TSBU, How was it and how did the
crowd reacted to your first show?
Morty - Actually, I haven't played with TSBU yet, since I have been in the band only for a few month.

Melvi - Do you have any plans to come to Nepal in coming days?
Morty - That would be great, if we'll ever get the chance we'll surely do it.

Melvi - What do you hate in metal community?like, anything..
Morty - I hate how, especially young people, tend to call each others "posers" and say rude things about people with different tastes in music. I also hate how metalheads are often starting fights about which subgenre or band is better, I find it quite immature and useless.

Melvi - Your dream metal fest line up.
Morty - Pain Of Salvation, Mr. Bungle, Caligula's Horse, Corelia, Leprous, Opeth, Katatonia, Liquid Tension Experiment and Anathema!

Melvi - Quick top 5 albums we must have in our collection.
Morty - Difficult one. I haven't got a top 5, nobody should have one... Just keep discovering, the more you know, the further you'll go!

Allen - That Beatles song I sang in my house as a kid. I felt twenty feet tall!

Allen - With equal measures of humor and Guinness, lol! Just kidding, the best way to overcome major obstacles is to view them as challenges to be conquered. Nothing is impossible!
Melvi - Art and Music has an impact on both young and old. Everyone loves a celebrity, so what advice do you have for the youth of today? 
Allen - Stay focused on your art and creativity, and stay away from the distractions that have destroyed so many musicians(drug abuse, heavy alcohol consumption, etc.)

Allen - While we have fans all over the world, we've played to our biggest audiences in India and Southeast Asia. I think our music connects because the fans are as passionate as we are!
Melvi - As an artist, how would you define success? 
Allen - Being happy with who you are, as both an artist and as a human being.
