A Word From Our Director
My name is Eduard Soponar, and I am the Director and Founder of Monica Model Management.
I began my career in the modelling and fashion industry in Calgary, Alberta. I have been privileged to experience the excitement of a high profile career, but also witness the disappointment of unfulfilled promises. After a few years in this industry, I decided to start an agency that would mirror a realistic expectation of the modelling and fashion world – providing integrity, hope and commitment to each and every one of my models without making false promises! I also wanted to create a safe environment for all models, no matter of age, gender or sexual orientation. I believe that models need to be respected and feel safe at all times. I know that in this industry, nothing is ever guaranteed, but I can guarantee that I will give 110% effort to help you reach your dreams and aspirations. I want our models to learn something from their experiences.
I named this agency after my mother, Monica. She was a single mom who worked up to 18 hours a day to be able to raise me and make sure I had what I needed. This kind of strength and resilience I observed from my mother is what I aspire to emulate every day. I am who I am today because of her, and I don’t know where I would have been today without her.
I am determined to do whatever it takes to build an agency that can help people realize that their dreams can become a reality if you have a team of professionals to support you every step of the way. For Monica Model Management, team success is about serving and helping others succeed in life.
I have experienced discrimination, bullying, and disappointment. These kinds of experiences can push you to your limit and make you doubt your self-worth. At Monica Model Management, we aim to ensure every team member feels like they are valued and appreciated for their unique self. We want to help people see their beauty and their worth because YOU are a gift to this world and YOU are here for a reason!
Beauty starts from within.
