Her Lovely Investment
Written by Lauren Acurantes / Photography by Franco Raymundo
The first thing you’ll notice when talking to Kiara Sy is that she’s very soft-spoken; a real lady through and through. She also exudes gentleness coupled with a quiet sort of confidence that we’re sure many of our PLAYBOY readers would find endearing; a result, perhaps, of her years in the modeling industry. “I started modeling when I was in high school but I stopped because I wanted to focus on my studies. Bumalik na lang ulit ako sa modeling last year, and now I am an in-house model for a studio,” she said.
Still, she describes her modeling as simply a hobby, choosing instead to cite her career as a trader as her main focus and source of income. “I got started in trading because a lot of my friends were into trading. I like that it’s risky, para ka lang naglalaro sa stocks imbes na sa casino,” she added. But she also assures us that with the proper know-how, it can be a very lucrative endeavor. Indeed, if beauty and brains were a commodity, we’re sure a lot of you would already be investing in this month’s Asian Beauty.
