Overview

Hi there!
I’m Ilka Candelario (Ilka Tamar is my stage name), and I cannot wait to meet you. I have been a Modeling Instructor since 1996 after my graduation from Fontecha Academy (Puerto Rico) in 1995. While attending Fontecha, I earned degrees in Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced Modelling between the years of 1995 to 1996. Some of my personal accomplishments, after being in the industry for 20 years, have been: Professional Modeling, Acting (TV and Film), Editorials (Washington D.C, Texas, New York), and owned my own Modeling Academy named MetaMorphosis by Ilka Tamar.

As your instructor, I would help you train for beauty pageants, runways, editorials, and more. Also, I would love to help you with self- confidence and self- esteem, personal goals and achievements. Starting at 5 years of age, I teach everyone with special needs and Seniors welcomed too!

Success and confidence have no age limits; this is my philosophy. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Working with Ilka is such a great experience! Her dedication and more than 15 years in the Modeling Industry has made her one of the best cat-walkers! Ilka is one of the most beautiful, serious and dedicated catwalkers. Her passion for this Industry goes beyond any level of description. Always trust the experience! Ilka has been in the Top fashion shows in Puerto Rico, being part of TV shows, magazines...you name it!
She knows everything about catwalk, European catwalk style and she has also been involved in candidates preparation for formal beauty pageants.
More than her experience is also her passion for sharing what she knows and making other people successful.
Ilka has the tools to make other people reach their dreams!!!
