Adonis Jocsing is living the Canadian dream. Born in the Philippines, the 22 year old rehabilitation assistant-turned-model moved to Canada with his family in 2011.
Now he’s representing Canada in an international modelling contest in Bankok, Thailand.
FILIPINO MODEL NAMED AFTER A GREEK GOD OF BEAUTY AND DESIRE
Even though he was named after Adonis, the Greek god of beauty and desire, he tries to keep his feet firmly on the ground.
Jocsing hasn’t been modelling for very long. He was working as a rehabilitation assistant with Interior Health when he was introduced by a friend to Rey Caparino, a host of the Pinoy Talk show on Access Communications, who got his modelling career started.
Speaking to Caitlin Clow of the Penticton Western News, Jocsing said “I didn’t expect I would was going to be modelling internationally, but I did want to do this and my parents are always there to support me.”
REPRESENTING THE PHILIPPINES AND CANADA
Before heading off to Thailand for the competition, Jocsing dropped by Manila to pick up a Barong Tagalog. Talking to Iain Burns of Kelwona Now, Jocsing said that elements of the traditional Filipino shirt will give a nod to Canada.
Altitude Men International is an international modelling competition which will see 19 contestants from different countries. Contestants will be judged based on attitude, responsibility, ability, talent, personality, photography, runway walk and overall looks.
