Most of the modeling industry has strict appearance rules, which most people don't check the box for. But by it being 2019, many models are defying the odds and showing the world that it is okay to be "different" from other models and to accept what makes you stand out.
When I first started modeling, I had no clue as to what I was doing. I didn't have a manager or mentor to help me book gigs. I studied my favorite models (Chanel Iman, Sessilee Lopez, Arlenis Sosa, etc.) and always copied their poses in my bedroom mirror. America's Next Top Model and The Face were my information-guides on how to be a model. I bought magazines and printed out inspiring poses from random models and posted them on my walls, eventually it turned into a mural for models. I studied every model I came across and always looked into their background, just to see how they've made it into the modeling industry. I begged my mom to sign me up for modeling school and before I knew it, I was enrolled.
Trap Music has made its mark on America, while also traveling across the world to Germany. Some will argue Trap music isn't necessarily "Black Culture." On the other hand, it has certainly stemmed from Rap/Hip-Hop. Artists like Nura, Schwesta Ewa, and Juju show you what Trap sounds like, German style.
I started this blog when I was 16. I was a sophomore in college and decided it was time to make an account that focused on what interested me. Since there was really no representation for Black Women, or dark-skin women, I took the time to upload one post per day. I did not think much of it. The number of my followers grew, but I did not pay much attention to it.
