I started modeling professionally in the Spring of 2016, and I can't believe I've been on this journey for 2 years. Modeling kind of fell on my lap, and was never in my life plan, but it has been one of the best things I have ever done with my life. I always got asked if I was one for as long as I remember but I didn't really know what it was about; in fact, I thought it was just a way of glorifying narcissistic bitches...haha

Growing up, my younger sister was the one who had all the interest in it, but my Dad was totally against it (as a typical African dad). However, fast-forward to 2 years ago when I moved back to Dallas. I decided to give this one thing I always heard about a try. I finally got signed by a small agency in the spring of 2016, just as I was about to give up and prove everyone wrong that I looked like a model. I was with that agency (who I will forever be grateful to for giving me a jump-start in my career) for a year but left because I knew I was ready to move on to the next level.

I signed with the Campbell Agency in mid-2107 (portfolio here), and the journey has been rewarding ever since. I decided to create this page to share some of my work, as I have gotten some experience, as well as share with you some of the incredibly talented photographers, and talent I have/will work with as I go along this journey. I hope you guys like it. At the end of the post, all of the photographer's information is listed if any of you would like to get a hold of them for your photographs.

Many of you might have an interest in modeling but might not know how to get started, or how to get around it. If you have any questions, make sure to send me an email (you can click the email icon in the top right or left-hand corner), and I will answer your questions to the best of my abilities.

P.s Modeling is not a walk in the park and has so many challenges. 'You're not tall enough' 'you aren't dark enough', 'your hips are too big', 'you aren't thin enough', you'll hear it all, but like anything you have to have a thick skin and perseverance to pull through.
