My name is Belle Smith and I am 19 years old. My passion, my LOVE, has always been for the arts. I would label myself as a creator, artist, filmmaker, aspiring actress and model. I am passionate about constructing beautifully stimulating, moving and wondrous realities. I am fortunate enough to have a small audience of twenty thousand on YouTube that experience and critique my creations (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7V6QGDgpoOkk8IfZIoUUJw). I made my portfolio-like channel four years ago while living in Europe, when I became heavily influenced by its fashion. Three years ago, I uploaded a video for The Love Magazine, that was actually, to much coincidence to this 'casting,' inspired by Kendall Jenner (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-DuFOJGjR0). I hoped somehow your magazine would get to witness it, but unfortunately never happened... maybe now is my chance. I star in, film, edit and direct all of my stylistic short films, commercials and fashion installments. Creativity is where my strengths lie.
Since the age of three, I was already sculpting. Infant me had forced everyone to call her "Belle" rather than her real name Victoria, and gloriously succeeded. To this day, I have never heard my parents nor family members refer to me by my real name. I was, and still am, fearless, passionate and determined. As an eight year old, I stared at myself, as well as others, in the mirror for hours, analyzing textures, movements and expression. As a nineteen year old, I spend my train rides taking notes on other passengers phrases and expressions and work everyday single day on a piece of art, that being a short film for Gucci, or a painting, or an outfit, or monologue or a character, I never truly stop. I love it that much. My talents and appreciation for art is what has shaped me into the person I am today as well as the way I see the world, and I am eternally grateful.
