Saven Mi Blesses Our Pages with Her Killer Looks
22-year-old model Saven Mi is a Canadian original. The Cambodian cutie is the total package -- the killer looks with the smarts to match. Saven dropped in for some one on one conversation and she had a lot to say. Don't forget to follow her on Twitter @SavenMi .So without further ado...
Where are you originally from? I was born in Thailand and came to Canada when I was almost a year old. I lived in Regina, Saskatchewan up until I was about 5 years old and then moved to Hamilton, Ontario where I grew up.
What was it like growing up in Hamilton? In one word, brutal! I didn't have the best childhood, but I guess growing up in the ghetto wasn't so bad. I believe it made me a stronger person and contributed a lot to who I am today. I never got anything I wanted, but at least when you have nothing you learn to appreciate everything. You have to start at the bottom to reach the top after all!
What were you like growing up? I was the most shy, quiet, awkward child ever! I was picked on for a long, long time. I remember my first friend wanted to see me cry so she shoved sand in my mouth. My first crush punched me in the face. I secretly crushed on a lot of boys but they probably saw me as just another boy haha. You would understand if you saw how I used to look!
Well indulge us, how did you look? I had really bad hygiene too, so all the other kids spread rumors that I was dating this weird, stinky boy everyone made fun of. I was even kicked in the crotch too. I barely had any friends and now I realized I missed out so much in my childhood because of how shy and weird I was. I never really participated in anything in school.
What took your mind off of the books? I was always hiding in my room watching anime and playing video games. I was completely addicted and obsessed. Things changed completely when I went to high school. I became super girly, and rebellious. I dyed my hair blonde, started wearing makeup, doing my hair, dressing like a girl, and started getting attention from boys. I was more outgoing, made new friends, skipped classes to go drink or smoke up, fought, all sorts of trouble and even left home for a while. Boy have things changed! I learned my lessons at an early age so I'm a good girl now! =P
Great story. So what is your nationality? I'm Cambodian. I'm also 1/4 Chinese - just throwing it out there because everyone always tells me how tall and light I am, especially compared to my family. So I asked my mom if I was adopted. She laughed and told me that I look like my Chinese grandma.
What are your measurements? My measurements are 32-25-37 and I'm 5'6.
I can't stand being told what to do, unless we're in bed...
Give us 5 words that you think best describe you?Sweet, silly, random, passionate, crazy.
Do you have any hobbies or special talents? My favorite hobby is boxing. My special talent is the ability to kick your ass. Just kidding, make love not war! I actually do have a lot of rage and since I'm such a nice person, I'd rather take it out on the heavy bag. I'm good at hair and make-up, I've done my own for just about every shoot, and no not because I went to school for it - I didn't learn anything I didn't already know. I'm secretly good at cooking, I just pretend I don't know how because I'd rather save it for the person I love - I've definitely pleased my men.
Thats a lot. Anything else?
I can draw, but only if I have a reason to. I write a lot of poetry, maybe I'll share them some day. I also like to think I can easily detect bullshit and see right through people. Although I do wish I had better talents like singing, dancing, or rapping the things I write! Haha.
How would you describe your personality? As a Leo I'm a natural leader - I can't stand being told what to do, unless we're in bed hehe. I'm also ambitious, courageous, dominant, strong willed, warm hearted, protective, and of course I enjoy the spotlight. As a fire sign a Leo is a very passionate lover. It's all or nothing in their relationships. And in bed Yuuup haha! Seriously though when I love, I love like there's no tomorrow and will do all that I can to protect and defend my loved ones.
What would you say is your best asset? What do others compliment you on the most? I don't wanna say my ass, so I'm gonna say my eyes or smile =)
How did you get started in modeling? I've always secretly wanted to be a model, but obviously I grew up with a low self esteem and never thought I had the looks or confidence so I never went for it. One day I randomly met a model who helped me out and brought me into the scene by introducing me to a photographer. We did a shoot and shortly after, we modeled at a car show in Montreal called Sports Compact Performance in 2008. It was all an amazing experience for me so I continued on my own by building a portfolio and searching for more gigs.
What do you enjoy most about modeling? I actually enjoy expressing another side of me in photos. I'm normally not very sensual or seductive but it's always fun to play dress up! I also have a great sense of accomplishment after seeing the results... and realizing what a work of art I am. Kidding! =P I love meeting new people and going to different events. I also really appreciate having fans who enjoy the work I do and reading all their sweet messages. Another great thing about modeling is the motivation to be in shape and all considering how competitive it is.
Out of all of your features, do you have a personal favorite? Hmm I loved them all but my favorite appearance was probably at Importfest 2011 because it was a sick show! I knew almost everyone, but also met a lot of amazing people and fans, who I loved taking photos and hanging out with! I had fun working with misssexy.ca, enjoyed watching the performances and competitions on stage.
If you could be on the cover of any magazine which magazine would you want it to be? I would love to be on the cover of Maxim or FHM because I love their style most and of course, they are very well known.
Let's switch gears to learn more about what makes you tick. What type of man are you attracted to? I'm attracted to well dressed tough guys with muscles, tattoos, and doesn't take shit from anyone, except me of course. I also love men who are sweet, romantic, caring, loyal, honest, fun, adventurous, and have a great sense of humor. Really though, in the end it's all about the chemistry and connection.
What trait about a man do you find irresistible? Affection, passion, strength and aggression is the sexiest combination. I'm not into violence, but I would start a fight with him just for fun
What body part of a man do you think is sexiest? His penis, duh. Just kidding! I love a nice pair of tits. I mean pecs. I enjoy squeezing 'em as much as guys do. I'm also a sucker for big arms, especially if it's all tatted up. Oh and this isn't really a body part but I love dimples! They're so cute I just wanna stick my fingers in them.
When it comes to your taste in men, pick one: "the bad boy" or "the nice guy"? I'm into "the nice guy" that turns into "the bad boy" when necessary. I can't stand pussies, but I can't stand assholes either =P
How does a man keep you interested once he's caught your attention? How do you show him that he has your attention? The answer is very simple! Once he's caught my attention, he needs to continue doing the things he did to catch my attention. I show him that he has my attention by becoming his slave. Not. I simply continue doing the things I do to make him happy, whether it's smothering him with hugs and kisses, cooking for him, surprising him, or whatever turns him on.
Let’s take it up a notch, are you the quiet type in the bedroom or the loud one? It depends. I'm not gonna fake it, so the better he is, the louder I am. At times let's just say he'd have to cover my mouth before the neighbors complain... but it still wouldn't work hehe.
When it comes to men, what are some of your turn offs? I can't stand men who are liars, disrespectful, negative, selfish, closed-minded and rude.
What's the most memorable thing a guy has done to get your attention? He made me a song! I love music so I've always had a thing for guys that can sing or especially rap. All my life I've wanted a song dedicated to me. I just think it's the most romantic thing you can do for a girl because I believe it takes a lot of thought, time, effort and it's something I can always listen to. It's not something you go to the store and buy, or a place you can just bring me. It's amazing because he constantly tried to get my attention even though I kept telling him let's just be friends, but he did it anyway because he knew what it meant to me. I sat next to him for most of it and watched him struggle but it was so sweet. It was the first and only song he ever made for someone, aww!
Do you have a quote that you live by? "Live. Love. Laugh." Simple as that!
What is your favorite city? Unfortunately I haven't traveled outside of Canada but so far my favorite is Vancouver because it's a beautiful city with beaches and mountains. Won't find anything like that in Ontario. I really need to explore the rest of the world!
