Argentines around the world
Micaela Chetta

Without being specialists in catwalks, most mortals can agree that Milan is the  fashion capital of the world. Many of the great Argentine models have triumphed in that Italian city. Micaela Chetta has not yet succeeded, exclusively because of the COVID-19  pandemic  .  In this note we tell you the story of Monte Vera's pride. 

Micaela was born in the city of Santa Fe, but grew up  in a small town located a few kilometers further north , called Monte Vera. Her close environment always knew that the baby liked fashion. Her memories of her little four years old already find her parading for her family. “I also remember several relatives telling me that I had to be a  model , that they knew that I always liked it, that  I was always the tallest and could make the most of that ,” recalls Mica..

In 2008 he began training in a modeling school and in that same year he made his debut on a catwalk in the City of Santa Fe. There he realized that “I never wanted to get off. It was my thing. So I continued to train in the city and also in Paraná, trying hard.” She still went to school and  had to handle herself by taking several collectives. 

As would be expected for any girl who wants to dedicate herself to this select world, the  Pampita  santafesina, as many call it, must have settled in Buenos Aires City. “There I had to start that new stage from scratch, alone. The first thing was to work dependently and, in parallel, to follow my goal with perseverance, faith, dedication and effort.” This is  the only way to get the castings, the participation in TV shows. Then, the covers of Argentine  magazines   , advertising, television commercials, parades, lookbooks, photo productions, among other works that were appearing.

 The most international of Monte Vera 

Micaela considers himself an adventurous person.  Her ambition led her to the Asian continent , more specifically to Bangalore, a city in India. An agency in Buenos Aires proposed to go to work for four months. “I certainly accepted. Living there and working so well made the Indian agency offer me to extend my visa. He worked with international brands and  performed a commercial with a leading role . The cherry of dessert: was chosen as a live model of a workshop in Chennai, by photographer  Zack Arias . “It was the greatest experience. It changed me a lot, both at work and at the cultural and personal level.”

At the end of 2019, he received the most important proposal of his career . A contract to go to work in Milan.“I accepted without hesitation, but the coronavirus prevented me from travelling . ”  The proposal still stands, “but they are not receiving international models yet, so it will be by the time we defeat this pandemic.”

Chetta is currently in Santa Fe, visiting her beloved village. “I never forget where I came from.  It makes me very good to connect with the tranquility that characterizes Monte Vera , fill me with good energies and continue to travel and work with what I am passionate about.”

Mica leaves a message to all those who do not know what to do in the face of difficult decisions in life: “Over the years, I have met people who, for various reasons, have not been able to fulfill their dreams. I tell you that nothing and no one can and should stop what you are destined to be and what you choose to be.  There is no time to do, even at times, what you love to do in life . Because the happiness that these moments give you is unique, and we are in this life to be happy. Put your  wings on! You can!“.
