Exclusive interview with model Pablo Herrera Gomez.
How did the pandemic disturb your life and have you managed to find balance?
Well, I think it’s fair to say that it has been an unexpected and very hopeless blow for everyone. Overnight the whole world changes from social relationships to the work environment. With respect to myself, I have to confess that living in small village and spending time walking in the countryside with my dog has helped me to keep my mind in peace.
Originality and Authenticity we all say it’s important but hard to be; do you self-assess and keep it real?
I totally agree on that point. Just a couple of hours ago I was reading one of my books where in the last chapter it said; before criticizing someone, make sure you have your life in perfect order. What I mean is that we all have bad days. But as long as we keep the right attitude, everything is going to be alright.
There’s a lot of talk for inclusion and diversity everywhere what do you think needs to be done in SPAIN?
Yes, it seems to be the trending topic. I am no authority to say what is right or wrong. But it would be nice that both in Spain and anywhere else on the planet the law of live and let live would be applied.
Do you believe in Utopia – what do you do to leave this world a better place?
I don’t believe in utopia as such, and it has already been proven throughout civilization that there is no perfect system or society. There will always be good and bad and there will always be those who like «sweet more than salty». That being said, if I can work to make this world a better place, I would start by accepting my first statement. and secondly giving without expecting anything in return is an easy way to make the world a nicer place.
What do you find sexy/sensual in your partner?
I love people with determination and character. Although a good pair of heels has always turned me on.
What is the one thing a. you do, b. having (item) & c. a person you really love?
A. I work in my own companies and as a model.
B. I have a car which I enjoy driving.
C. Boys always love their moms.
We all need a win this year what is yours?
Be a better version of me and send the covid to hell
What do you want others remember you by? Your legacy so to speak for future generations
It is not in my list of dreams to make many people remember me. It doesn’t drive me crazy. My dream is to create a legacy for my loved ones. To reach the end of my days being at peace with myself. I would feel fulfilled and at the same time that would be a good example for the upcoming generations
What is beauty to you? Is it important to appreciate it?
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But sure, beauty is everywhere, it surrounds us, and not everyone is able to recognize it.
Are you that guy that buys anything new and innovative?
Sometimes it’s nice to treat yourself. But I don’t really spend my money on material things. Things are just things.
Communicating with ourselves and others is hard. Are you a direct person or do you use sideways to get there?
It always depends on the occasion. if there is any gift I believe god has given me, this is the emotional intelligence. So this way I can quickly grasp how that person is and his energy. and depending on that I say things very directly or I try to explain them more subtly.
What’s your harbor, your Ithaca?
-Live enjoying the things I do. (living up)
-To serve the common good. (to be useful to others)
-To make my family happy.
-To own the Ferrari before I die.
