You may have caught glimpses of this blonde beauty in countless ad campaigns, runway shows and commercials – but that’s just the tip of the iceberg for Joy Corrigan, who is truly a model for positivity, perseverance and the power of family.

We had the chance to sit down with the bright-eyed Joy to discuss how it all began, what sparks her daily motivation and the goals that make her tick.

You’re already such a diverse model in your career. But how did it all start for you?

I did my first fashion show when I was 14. It all started when a designer approached me in the local mall and asked me to walk in their teen clothing fashion show. Ever since I’ve had a passion for modeling and acting, but really only started full-time about three years ago.

What is your biggest motivation right now to get out of bed in the morning?

Right now I’m in NYC working towards building my brand and achieve daily goals! My daily goals consist of working out, eating healthy and trying to get at least 8 hours of sleep per night! Some of my other goals are to launch my clothing line, visiting my family more, and just enjoying the process!

How do you feel about social and IG in particular?

I try and post on my Instagram every day, and add little parts of my day to my IG story! It’s a lot of work, but I love it! I try to only spend 30 mins or less on Instagram, using most of that time to engage with my fans by reading comments and replying when I can. Some days I make it a priority to stay away from my phone, it’s important to disconnect, but social media is important, so finding the balance is key! [You can follow Joy on IG here: @joycorrigan]

What particular project are you most excited about?

I am most excited about the charity I started last year, Jade’s Vine Foundation – which works to preserve and protect endangered species of plants and animals, through donating all proceeds from our clothing line and paintings to supporting these efforts. My goal is to bring awareness to endangered species and hopefully with my voice and following I can make a difference!

What are you most excited about in your personal life right now?

I really am excited about visiting my grandma this weekend, she doesn’t live far so I’m going to surprise her with a visit! My grandma is the strongest and most inspirational woman I know, I would say she’s my number one role model!

What do you consider your biggest accomplishment so far?

Every day I try and accomplish something, whether it’s big or small, I put everything into it. For me, not one achievement stands above the rest. And as long as I give my all, I can always learn from my failures and grow towards higher achievements.

Where would you love to be 5 years from now?

Hopefully you will see me in Hollywood staring in a new favorite feature film! And with my family of course, since they are the ones who always have my back and keep me grounded!
