Irma is a model from Lithuania who has conquered the battles that life has thrown at her and come out as the victor. She believes that what does not kill you only makes you stronger.
“My name is Irma Bulaityte. I am originally from Lithuania but I have been living in United Kingdom, London, since 2003.
Modeling is my passion. I love my work and what I do. I am hard working and I put a hundred percent into every opportunity. I never give up, and I have learnt that having a very positive attitude is very important in the modeling industry. I look forward to opportunities that allow me to experience new places, meet new people and set positive example for others. I am a very ambitious person and I always take one step further to achieve better.
I always wanted to be an actress and a model from a young age in Lithuania. People commented on my looks and strong personality which, gave me the impetus to follow my dreams of performing. I started dancing at the age of 14 and modeling all through my teenage years. I was also very interested in sports and I was a basketball player and an athlete. I was a very good runner and I received numerous awards for my talent. It was a busy period in my life as I had to also spend time studying and making sure I got good grades at school. When I turned sixteen, I decided to take part in drama performances, which included acting, dancing and modeling. My drama team was invited to perform in a famous location in Lithuania where the Lithuanian film ‘Tadas Blinda’ was made. It was very successful and that was when I knew performing was my calling.
Over the years, I have worked hard and I am very proud of my many achievements. Currently, I am in the U.K Top Models grand finals and more than 4000 models entered the competition. I am also a finalist for two other miss U.K Pageant competitions, ‘Face of the Globe’ as a finalist and Miss Galaxy U.K.
Miss Galaxy is one of the leading beauty pageants in the U.K and competing in it is an incredible experience.
I have had the opportunity to appear in many popular TV commercial, adverts, Hollywood film, Bollywood films, music videos as featured actress, lead model or supporting background artist. Through my hard work, dedication of chasing my dream, I have met and worked with amazing leading London photographers like Hana Zielinska, Belanova, Sultan Rahi and many more. I have modeled on London Fashion Week and met so many amazing designers. In 2014, I was selected as Model of the year.
My goal is to continue to work hard and push myself to make it into the acting industry and also to be recognized as a top model. I will never give up on my dreams. I will continue to follow them until I reach the heights of my career as an actress and a model. My advice to myself and anyone who has a dream is ‘It’s never too late for anything. You have one life, make the most of it and don’t waste your talent. If you’ve got it, go for it’.”
