How does she define the word “model”? And in her opinion, in order to become a model, what skills are required? She answers that a model can be defined as “one who expresses”. She continues that it would also not be wrong to call a model as “someone who sets the standard”. To sum it up roughly, models should incite feelings of admiration in people who see or hear of them. If you demonstrate the using of a product or the adornment of clothes, only if the audiences admire you, they will want to copy you and therefore purchase the product you are endorsing.

As for what talents a model must have, she does not really want to sound like a bossy lecturer by pointing them out. She had already lectured the contestants in The Model Academy regarding that as a part of her duty (until they got so tired of her, she added jokingly). Now that she is asked to explain these qualities again in the interview, the shortest way to sum it up, according to her, is that you should strive to have the influence to make others want to imitate you and to incite admiration in them.

The talk turns to her comeback. After a period of distance from the audience, she made a comeback to the modeling world. Despite her lengthy disappearance from public view, the name “Thandar Hlaing” still held name recognition when she made her return and the audience readily welcomed her back. So it would be interesting to know how she managed to achieve this result. She replies that she almost forcibly re-entered the world, filled with her self-confidence. When she first got back into the business, one famous academy award-winning actress even remarked that she was trying to breathe life back into a dead tiger. When Thandar Hlaing heard about it, it even made her stronger emotionally, because she was still perceived as a tiger by a big public figure like that actress. So, now that she was already a tiger, she decided that whether the tiger was alive or dead depended on her efforts and talents.

Also, even though she had been very much distanced from the entertainment business during her time abroad, she does not consider that time to be wasted. After having kids, she went back to school, and therefore juggling her duties. The knowledge she gained from that period is now proving extremely useful in her business that she talked about earlier. Her two children also showed great talent for acting from a young age, thus giving them a lot of opportunities to work together with their mother. In this way, they are saving up their own funds for later college fees.
