About Me

My dreams of modeling began around age 10 watching Tyra Banks strut her stuff walking the runway on the reality show "America's Next Top Model". As a young aspiring fashion designer, I decided I would one day model my own designs. At age 15, I tried going to modeling agencies to start off my potential career. Yet my dreams were put on hold when being told I was then too curvy and not tall enough for runway modeling. I was even eligible for one agency but did not sign with them. I finally got my foot in the door when I modeled for the Amalgamation 2012 fashion show, and doing shoots for Chicago based designers Cynt D.B. and Asil Nworb.

Although I'm not the traditional kind of model in terms of height, weight, size, and hair texture, I want to be an example of a successful Black freelance model shown in a positive light. I wish to do as many haute couture shoots and shows as if I were a 5'11, 120lbs model. My goal is to express my love for fashion and inner and outer beauty through modeling setting a positive example for boys and girls who don't fit the traditional credentials to be a model.

Other than modeling, I do some fashion illustrating and fashion designing since 2005 (Taking fall fashion design classes at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 7th grade and working as a student designer from 2008-2009 at the After School Matters Gallery 37 Fashion Design Program). I have also been a coordinator as well as a model in the 2013 UIC Fashion Show and have interned backstage for the July 2013 Broadway Rocks Fashion fashion show assisting designers Sarah Church, Cleons Clothing Co., Meekis, LH Couture, and Just Human by Yemonja Smalls.
