Have you ever approached a woman, tried to strike up a conversation and she does nothing positive to contribute or progress the conversation forward? She’s not particularly funny? Charismatic, and all her answers are yes and no answers?
Well Saven Mi is not that kind of a woman — at least, not based on this interview.
Throughout the interview Saven manages to beautifully flesh out her personality by the way she answers the interview questions.
She is sweet, humble, thoughtful, playful, at times passionate and emotional, bumping the quality of her pictures up with an added layer of depth that we may not have noticed had we not red this exclusive interview.
What’s your age, zodiac, ethnicity, relationship status, and where are you from? I am 22 years old, Leo, Cambodian, married to myself, and from Hamilton, Ontario.
How would you describe your personality? I’m naturally shy, but once you get to know me you’ll learn how weird I really am. I am most familiar with dirty jokes. I’m a sweetheart but I’ll always stand up for what I believe in. I don’t like arguing, I like proving my point. I believe in treating people the way you’d like to be treated. I’m easy going and laid back, but I can be quite rude and short tempered.
What’s your biggest flaw? I’m sexy and I know it! [laughs] not. I always complain about being fat, but I eat too much for my own good because I can’t say no to food… I end up yelling at my friends for offering. I eat because I’m sad, I’m sad because I eat! =P I can also be quite naïve and gullible at times. I’m a worry wart and sometimes I care too much for my own good.
What do you hate? Hate is a strong word, but I dislike rudeness, negativity, and disrespect. I also dislike people who are closed-minded and judgmental.
What do you love? I love my loved ones who love me in return [laughs]. I also love summer, beaches, food, all the simple and of course, the finer things in life.
What motivates you? I am actually motivated by my dreams and fantasies, making sure they become a reality as soon as possible. I honestly want to give my family and loved ones the world. I also love proving myself, especially to those who don’t believe in me. Last but not least, I enjoy making my fans smile. I really want to be a positive influence and one day inspire others to follow their dreams as well.
What do you fear? I fear death, being mediocre, and failing to make an impact. I also fear insects and mice… I will scream and run whether I’m asleep or not!
Any hobbies? Does drinking count? =P I enjoy chilling and listening to music, spending time online, watching movies, working out, boxing, learning and trying new things.
Pet peeves? Liars! Especially when I catch them lying straight to my face. I can’t stand when people don’t answer my question even after repeating myself countless times. People who assume models are unintelligent because, what? We’re photogenic? How does that relate? Also, those who think posing in lingerie or bikinis is degrading. I’m sure that’s not what you’re thinking about when you look at Maxim magazines or when you’re at the beach. It’s not like we’re naked or doing porn. No, not even close. So don’t hate, appreciate!
Where did it start? (the moment you knew you wanted to do this and why?) I’ve actually always secretly wanted to be a model but never thought I had the looks, height, or confidence for it. I really admired other models, and was especially attracted to the sexy glamour ones thinking, man I wanna be her! So one day I randomly became friends with a model who brought me into the scene by introducing me to a photographer and modeling with her at a car show. It was an amazing experience so from then on I built a portfolio and continued finding more gigs.
What genre of modeling do you like doing the most? I love glamour, lingerie, and promotional modeling!
Which modeling job do you think is your most memorable? I would say Importfest 2011 because it’s one of the biggest car shows and by then I knew most of the people there. I had a lot of fun with the MissSexy.ca crew I was with. I was also really happy to meet and hang out with some of my sweetest fans!
What sets you apart from other models? I am just my weird, random self. I enjoy interacting with my fans because I’m a loner and they’re all I have. I was raised in the ghetto so I’m used to living in a cardboard box. The key to happiness is appreciating the things you have, not crying over the things you don’t. Sometimes it’s nice to be a hoodlum and do hoodrat things with your friends ya know. Kidding, basically, I’m not as stuck up as you think I might look. I’m told unlike other models I’m easy to work with, not a diva or drama queen. I’m more laid back, I can get along with anyone, and I’m always happy to help anyone in need as long as it’s within my power.
What do you do to keep yourself in shape (any beauty secrets)? I eat burgers and chocolate when I’m craving it. No actually, I try to eat well (chicken, tuna, eggs, whole wheats, veggies, fruits, protein shakes) as much as I can but I have to give in to my cravings at times (more like all the time), especially the weekend, otherwise I will go crazy and binge at a buffet like there’s no tomorrow. I really lack will power, that’s why even though I work out often I barely ever see results. I love food with a passion!
Describe your ideal man? My ideal man is funny, sweet, romantic, caring, honest, loyal, horny and amazing [laughs]. He cooks, cleans, sings, raps, dances and entertains me. He’s a man of his words. He protects, fights for me, and with me. He’s jacked and tatted up. Tough on the outside, sugary on the inside, and loves to cuddle. He knows how to dress, enjoys shopping and going to the spa with me. He’s a gentleman who understands that it’s not being “whipped”, it’s treating his woman with the love and respect that she deserves. He’s fun, enjoys going out, partying, traveling, and all the things I do. He’s someone I can be comfortable and myself around. Sounds crazy but hells ya I know he exists and I’d be the luckiest girl to have him!
If you had the choice to date a superhero, who would it be and why? The one who can fly and has super strength so we can have super sex in the sky.
What do you think are the biggest mistakes men make when it comes to approaching and interacting with women? When you first approach a girl, the way you look at her makes a difference. A mistake men often make would be staring at her boobs or looking at her up and down. Creepy! Even if you are eye banging her, don’t make it so obvious. When interacting, once again, don’t be creepy! I’ve had a guy come up to me and say, “I wanna sleep with you.” Even if you’re joking, save it for after you say hi, maybe use a cute cheesy line and introducing yourself. It’s not rocket science, just keep it simple and be yourself, unless you’re actually a creep. Sorry can’t help ya there buddy. And the biggest mistakes are failing to make the girl smile or laugh, failing to hold a conversation, and failing to find a way to keep in touch with her. If you don’t seal the deal you just wasted both of your time and lines!
What is guaranteed to turn you on?
Boobies! Not. I love the smell of cologne and soft lips kissing my neck (my weakness). If you have nice muscles and know how to use them… oh boy I love aggressiveness, knowing I can be thrown around and destroyed [laughs].
How would you rate your sex performance? On a scale of 1 to 10, I am over 9000! [laughs] nah sorry I’m a virgin =P I actually have no clue. How would I know? I’ve never had sex with myself. Hmm it also depends how into it I am. I think I can probably either rock his world or make him fall asleep haha.
Favorite position? On top… of the world! Ohh you meant in bed? That’s for me to know and you to find out
Thongs or boy shorts? Commando! Not. If I had to choose one or the other I guess it would be a thong because I usually pull it down so that I can’t feel it. I hate wedgies.
If someone were to sneak in your bedroom, what would you be wearing? A strap on dildo… I’m always prepared for trouble. Seriously though, probably nothing, but then again it depends what I’m doing. I dare you to try and find out, but if you get shot don’t blame me =P
What would you like to be doing 5 years from now? I believe that success is freedom so I would like to be doing whatever the eff I want, which is exploring the world, going on all sorts of extreme adventures, coming back to my beautiful home and swimming in my pool of hundred dolla bills! Haha.
