Emy Ltr: a complete artist

FIV: Hi Emy! How are you? How are you? You are an influencer and a complete artist very appreciated in France for your sympathy and your natural side. Can you describe your universe and your style for our international readers who don’t know you yet, please?

Emy: Hello! I’m fine, thank you very much! First of all thank you it’s really nice to hear that:) ! So my name is Emy, I’m 28 years old and I’ve always had a lot of trouble describing my universe and my style, I don’t know myself. I think I’m a mixture of a lot of things like a little porridge. I mainly do fiction and short films on Youtube and Instagram networks. My universe is a palette like for painters, I have put all the colors I am a fan of and I make my own painting.

I have been passionate about cinema and music since I was a child, and I have always dreamed of making it my profession. I’ve always had an overactive imagination. As a child, I used to make up stories to fall asleep, the only difference is that today I put them on paper and in pictures! I really like science fiction, I like to add different genres sometimes thriller sometimes comedy…. I don’t like the routine. I really like poetic content, a bit of art as they say. Anyway, I mix everything up:)

FIV: In May 2019, you climbed the stairs of the cane festival for the first time. Congratulations! How was the day and what was your best memory?

Emy: I don’t really know if I should be congratulated for that, I went there to attend I didn’t present anything:). But it was fascinating to me. I’ve been watching the ceremony since I was a kid and being invited this year was pretty crazy. Beyond the glitter and the red carpet, there is a real respect for cinema there. You get up when the film crew arrives, you applaud, nobody talks or anything else during the film and at the end you applaud again. I thought it was incredible. Because today at the movies besides seeing the guy next door texting you or hearing the popcorn noises… I’m a misophone, so I hate the popcorn noises!

My best memory, I would say that it was after the screening of Roubaix, we went to celebrate and we found ourselves at the same evening as Léa Seydoux, Marion Cotillard and their friends… There really I felt like I was hallucinating and wondered how I got there:)!

I also have a great memory of the climbing of the stairs, I was very stressed, I was very afraid of falling or being ridiculous, a creative friend had lent me a dress that she wanted to exhibit in Cannes but the dress was extremely heavy and very cumbersome, I remember that at one point a photographer called me to take a picture of me, I was so not expecting it that I suddenly turned around and walked on my train I felt the ground approaching but it will avoid the Drama:D !

Being a woman in 2019 by Emy Ltr

FIV: You posted a video on Youtube called: “Being a woman in 2019”. Can you share with us your feelings on this subject, please?

Emy: I had been receiving a lot of messages asking me to tell about my experience as a woman for a long time. I hesitated for a long time before I did. Fear of not using the right words, fear of not getting the right message across. But when I saw the news on abortion I couldn’t help but react. I don’t pretend to know the exact terms, the exact figures, nor do I have the in-depth knowledge to speak for professionals so I preferred to talk about myself, my different jobs and my feelings. I received a lot of supportive messages, men and women telling their stories in the comments it was great. Exchange is why we do this job: to share. And that’s what happened.

I don’t think I’m ultra-feminist, I think I’m more of a humanist, actually. I want gender equality but it goes both ways, I was raised by a man and I didn’t learn misogyny until very late. My father, my friends never talked about women in any inferior way, I never felt any differences between the sexes, I discovered that when I started working and I found it sad. But I don’t want to put all the men in the same bag. Or women, for that matter. Because there is a lot of work to be done on women’s relationships too.

I’ve made my way, so yes I think at first I was a little bit of a joker, they were afraid to trust me, knowing that fiction is a domain mainly for men on YouTube, but I persevered and today my sex no longer counts.

Film: News, short films, series and cult films

FIV: Emy, you are a real artist! After your success on Youtube and Instagram, you published your book and released your first jingle. And today, you create your short films, you are incredible and full of energy! How did you get the idea and the desire to create short films?

Emy: Oh, that’s nice! I don’t really have any answers.  As I explained earlier, I believe I was born with the desire to live in my own reality. My stories. I fought for this and I hope to be able to do it for a very long time.

I was very introverted as a child, I didn’t talk to the other children I was afraid of it. So when I went to bed I imagined the day I would have wanted to spend and I think that’s the starting point of my whole story.

My father always told me, “I know that school is not your thing but it doesn’t matter, you’ll make movies my daughter! “I think unconsciously it became my goal to make him proud of me. We’re not there yet but I work for:)!

When I arrived on YouTube, I would have liked to start making short films right away, but I didn’t have the means or productions to help me. So I built my universe little by little, then when I had enough “weight” for people to notice me, I thought it was time to really get started.
Then I find that there is no better way to communicate than emotion. So that’s what I’m trying to do, to bring people together around the same emotion. We are not so different if we all feel the same thing at the same time.

FIV: Can you please tell us about your new Orpheus project, a series that is very much awaited by your followers! Do you have any other future projects you would like to share?

Emy: Orpheus is a script I wrote last January, unfortunately at that time we hadn’t found a set I had to leave it out. It’s a story I wrote for my grandfather who left us a few years ago and I was very close to him. He didn’t give me time to show him that I was going to do what I’m doing today. But when he left I made him a promise and Orpheus represents that promise kept! This project is his:).

I prefer not to say too much and let you discover this series! No spolier in our country: D

There is also Perfect Love 2 which will be released on September 1st, it’s a medium-length film and a new step for us. My production no longer sleeps but I gradually take them to the feature film haha.

FIV: Cinema is one of your passions. Which films have left their mark on you? What films would you recommend to your Followers?

Emy: Wow, I hope you have time. I have an endless list of movies I love.

Those who impressed me I would say Fight Club, Seven, The Fountain, Beyond our dreams, Interstellar, The Great Blue, The 5th Element, American History X, Angel Heart, Philadelphia, Braveheart, 21 grams, her name was Sarah, The Devil’s Partner, Heat, Sleepy Follow, The Army of the Twelve Monkeys, Balde Runner, Big Fish, Gangs of New York, Lord of War, Hook (I even have a tattoo of it by the way), Dracula, The Silence of the Lambs… My list is far too long:)

5 tips to become a successful actress – Emy Ltr

FIV: As an actress, what are your 5 tips for becoming a successful actress?

Emy: I don’t know if I’m in a position to give advice, I’m learning and I’m only at the beginning. But I’ve always wanted to live things 100% so I’m not sure it’s wise to listen to my haha advice. But I like authenticity and I’m always afraid to play wrong. So if I have to get a slap and then I ask to be really slapped to get a sincere reaction. When I have a scene of anger or tears, I listen to music that gives me emotions for about thirty minutes by looking at sad images I condition myself to the maximum. Then for scenes a little “lighter”, I make sure to forget the camera and tell myself that the character is really me and it helps me to play more naturally. I’ve forgotten a little about shyness because it can be a blockage, I don’t care about ridicule, I don’t care about being pretty, my only goal is to be credible.

Actress tips: How to make your dreams come true?

FIV: What would you like to say to those who want to make their dreams come true like you?

Emy: Not to give up, I was a switchboard operator 4 years ago, I didn’t graduate and I lived with 900th grade per month. But my phobia of living a bland life without passion was stronger than the fear of crashing and I started. It takes sacrifice, but I wouldn’t change my life for anything in the world. Don’t listen to people who discourage, they are forgotten dreamers. I’m only at the beginning, but I’m not going to give up. Stay persistent and give love. The more positive and kind you are, the more the doors will open. Good luck!

Sofia Tsakiridou aka Matiamu

Sofia Tsakiridou alias Matiamu is a blogger and infuencer with Greek roots. Since this professional field is no longer too rare, one wonders what exactly are the reasons why people like to share their private lives in such a public way. Now you can find out what Sofia’s motivation is, who her boyfriend is, what she is looking for at Germany’s Next Topmodel and why she chose the name “Matiamu” for her blog.

Matiamu by Sofia Tsakiridou

Matia… what ?

“Matia mu” is Sofia Tsakiridou’s blog. The pretty brunette regularly fills her blog with new posts about the popular topics:

  • Beauty
  • Food
  • Fashion
  • Lifestyle
  • Models
  • Travel
  • Sport

“Matia mu” is Greek for “my eyes”. This is exactly what Sofia wants to communicate to the whole world – she wants to show what the world looks like for her. The concept is very well received by their readers. They like her enchanting, cheerful and honest manner, because the popular blogger doesn’t mince her words, instead she always clearly takes her personal position on the most diverse topics. This fascinates and motivates their fans.

Who is behind the blog ? (age, place of residence and home )

As you already know, the pretty brunette with Greek roots, Sofia Tsakiridou, is behind the blog. The family model was born on 01 June 1993 in Hamburg and lives after a short break in Cologne, again in the Hanseatic city.

Motivation and inspiration of the model

Read correctly – Sofia is not only a blogger, but also a model. She combines her passions and thus lives out her dream. She is allowed to travel a lot in her job, discover the world and get to know and love creative people. It quickly became clear to the model that the beauty of a country is carried into the world by the beauty of its inhabitants. For this reason she has set herself the goal of being a good role model, inspiring others and infecting them with her joie de vivre.

Saggy: What does the blogger say ?

Sofia is grateful for her success and happy to be inspired by others. Thanks to this attitude, the 25 year old has already gained some experience. As a result, she has found that life as a model is not always as unconditionally perfect and simple as it may seem on the outside. For this reason she would like to tell everyone that nobody has to look so unhealthy and skinny and should look like many models from fashion magazines.

Sofia’s definition of beauty

Of course it is important to look beautiful as a model, but here the question comes quickly: Who or what is beautiful at all? Sofia is sure that every person can be beautiful in their own way. It’s not about pleasing the majority or looking like someone else. No, it’s about feeling comfortable in your skin and bringing that happiness out. Because only those who are beautiful from the inside can do so from the outside.

Goal of your blog

So Sofia, as mentioned before, uses her blog to share this message with the world. Their readers should be able to see the world through their eyes, be inspired by it and then see how the world looks perfect for everyone personally. Everyone should have the opportunity to make the most of their life, to love themselves and to follow their dreams.

Fans and feedback

The feedback from her fans, which the brunette receives daily, is Sofia’s biggest motivation. She realizes that it’s really worth the effort and time to put into both her blog and her Instagram account.

The Blogger now also as YouTube-Star ?

Sofia doesn’t really produce her own videos for YouTube, but she often stands for the format Fashion & Lifestyle by OTTO in front of the camera, as for example in the following video. Sofia and fashion blogger Kira Bejaoui have teamed up to create a feel-good outfit for cosy evenings.

Sofia Tsakiridou in GNTM

Yes, Sofia already had her big appearance in the casting show Germany’s Next Topmodel (GNTM) but not as a participant, but as guest juror in this year’s season. In retrospect, the blogger even openly admitted that the winner of last season’s season (2018) had already been her absolute favourite at Sofia’s guest appearance. She would also like to be part of the show again in the upcoming season and get to know the candidates personally.

What agency is the model under contract with ?

As a professional model Sofia is of course also under contract with a model agency. To be exact, the Hamburg agency PMA, which gives Sofia’s exact measurements on its website.

  • Size: 175 cm
  • breast: 82 cm
  • waist: 61 cm
  • Hip: 89 cm
  • Fabrication: 36
  • Shoes: 39

Who’s Sofia’s friend?

The man at Sofia’s side is the Swiss men’s model Jérôme Palaz. Although both like to post photos of themselves together, the couple keeps questions about their relationship rather closed. The two look happy nevertheless or maybe just because of that.

The face for Betty Barclay

Since the beginning of March this year, fashion blogger Sofia Tsakiridou has been the face of the new Betty Barclay fragrance Beautiful Eden.
