"My goals as a model will be to grace the covers of your top magazines."
Model Citizen App is the platform where we recognise fashion models, photographers, designers, makeup artists, hair stylists, creative directors, bloggers, stylists, and labels around the world. Every day, we feature an individual on Model Citizen Interviews. People get to know each of them - their hopes, challenges, aspirations and inspirations in life.
Tell us about yourself: Why do you want to work as a model? Why are you interested in modelling as a career?
When people first see me they think I'm quiet. It's not until soon after that they realize I'm a ball of energy that can't be tamed. I'm super outgoing and love to hike , and do anything that has to do with nature. Many people don't know that. Shh
How important is modelling education: Have you attended modelling courses? What related courses or studies have you taken?
Though I think modeling education is very important. Unfortunately I have never taken a class before. I have did my research of models of the 90s, and many of the first black women to grace covers. That's about it.
What do you think makes someone “fit” to be a model?
I think what makes someone fit to be a model is personality. Once you have personality and overall confidence in everything that you do, including modeling you can go far.
What are your goals as a model? How do you see yourself progressing in this field?
My goals as a model will be to grace the covers of your top magazines. To have 5 page spreads , and to be able to talk to many young girls , and even some older women about modeling and to never give up no matter what.
What do you know about advertising psychology and photography?
I know a lot about photography. I actually want to become a photographer on the side and one day run my own agency.
How do you communicate with people? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements?
I've heard that I'm very friendly. I can make a new friend in a heart beat. As far as clients I'm very open to change. I love to make myself the best version of myself first before going into new clients so I know that any requirements they may have. I have already met on my own.
Do you eat nutritiously? How often do you exercise or go to the gym?
I'm a health freak. I eat 3 times a day, and no food after 9pm. I try to work out at least 3 times a day , 4 days a week. When I was younger I was on the step team , so that was my workout. Now that I'm older I just kind of do my own thing.
What is your dream role as a model?
My dream role as a model..man it would have to be to be the super emotional model on set. That has to cry and show emotion. Like cycle 11 of Americas next top model when one of the girls had to channel her past to bring her best tears to the image. Haha
Do you have any limitations? How do you define your boundaries when choosing to accept a modelling request?
I never put limitations on myself. I have no boundaries when it comes to modeling, but I also know what's right from wrong and to not be stepped on.
State your availability: Would you travel? Work full-time, part time? Any hours?
I'm pretty busy these days. I currently work part time at Nordstrom each as a stylist.
What is your most memorable experience so far?
My most memorable experience would have had to been recently. I met Reggie Wells? Oprahs make up artist , and he gave me so much advice on the industry. He also stated he knows another Chanel Iman when he sees one!
