As a black model in the industry the number one key thing to do is stay true to you and your roots. Always be as natural as possible and be the best you.
My experience as a model has been great. Of course there’s been a little competition here and there because there aren’t that many black models in the industry, but I believe staying true to myself and my being provided me with jobs that I would never even imagine, like Kanye, I actually worked for him in the summer. I recently did an exclusive for Essence Magazine. I also work in London, Paris, Montreal Canada, and New York City.
Every look that I have is always with my natural hair, representing my natural look took a lot of effort, about four years, but finally they’re starting to see who I am.
