Getting to Know International Model & Influencer Ashley Liz Cooper


What is something anyone starting in your industry needs to know?
If you are wanting to become an influencer you need to know how to stay true to yourself. While it’s cool to look up to people and even find inspiration in them, you will never reach a level of success by copying someone else’s art.

What would you do differently if you were starting in your industry now?
I would post less pictures of myself and more aesthetically pleasing pictures in between. A couple of my close friends do that and I love the way it looks! However, as a model, I am not able to do that anymore.

Which people or books have had the most influence on your growth and why?
I really look up to Kylie Jenner for what she did with her influence, business, and criticism. I love that she took her biggest insecurity and made it into a billion dollar business. I hope to do something similar with my scoliosis. I have always struggled with it and I would love to start a charity for people who are dealing with the same problem.

What would you say is the #1 key to success in your business?
The #1 key to success is to not let negative comments or dm’s affect your mental health. When your job is more or less focused on your appearance it is important to stay healthy inside and out!

What does a typical day in your week look like?

A typical day for me is waking up, feeding my animals, making breakfast & coffee, getting ready to shoot content or going to set, shooting, walking my dog, checking emails, and hopefully packing for my next adventure! I try not to have too many typical days!

What keeps you going when things get tough in your business?
What keeps me going when things get tough are my friends and family. I also like to go on little getaways when things get really crazy!
