Meet Diamond Buckley

Today we’d like to introduce you to Diamond Buckley.

Hi diamond, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
I’ve always loved performing! I was that person that was constantly singing and dancing and being super obnoxious. But what really solidified my love was joining show choir in high school. I knew after that I wanted to be an entertainer of some sort. In the back of my mind, I thought about dipping my feet into the modeling industry in some way, but I didn’t know-how. I started doing free photoshoots with my friends, and then I slowly started networking with some small businesses to model for them. I really wish I remembered the exact moment it clicked for me that I needed to move to LA to further my career. I just remember that it didn’t take long for me to move after coming to that conclusion. I moved about a year after. I had a slow start when I moved to LA. It was very frustrating feeling like I picked up my whole life and nothing was coming out of it. Slowly but surely though, I started working more and more and picking up the momentum. About a year after moving, my intrigue for acting started to grow as well. I started taking classes and realized that this was something I was immensely passionate about. Since then, I’ve been able to work on a bunch of projects that I’m super grateful for. I’ve been in Los Angeles for almost three years now and I’m super excited to see what else is in store for me!

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Some of the biggest challenges I’ve had have just been because of myself. It’s so easy to doubt yourself and make comparisons when you’re surrounded by people that have the same goals as you. I’ve gotten a lot better at not comparing myself and just being happy for my peers that are achieving success. I know that I’m making the right steps for my career and anything that comes to me is coming at the time that it needs to.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I’m a model, actor, and content creator. I feel like each of these serve their own purpose. Modeling is where I feel most in my element and most confident. Acting is definitely the biggest challenge, but thats exactly why I love it. I love the process of figuring out my character and building a whole world around who they are. Content creation is definitely where I get to show off my personality. I think it’s the coolest thing ever that I’ve been able to build a community simply based off of who I am.
