Model has 1 facial expression in all shots and is looking into camera in all shots.

P.S. I hate collages.

I 100% agree^

All have same dull, lifeless expression.

I have never been a fan of collages.

agree with the above also you seem to favour the look of putting one hand up and grabbing your clothing. I would practice expressions and poses in front of the mirror so you look a bit more lively in front of the camera.

Do you do yoga or dance classes? That can help too!

1st image
Busy Oriental background
Model should have more space in front of her
[Move her to photo right]
Right hand is a fist

2nd image
Green tree branch is a distraction
Raise camera closer to eye level

1st image
Model looks like she is sneering
Raise the camera

2nd
Model too centered
Model is such a small element in photo

3rd
Too much wall

Prefer one photo per slot

Over all models poses are not as strong as they could be

Wish you well

I would say to break up the images from the collage format too.
Too many images with the same expression.  Pick fewer.
