We proudly present the lovely Brianna Michelle. She’s our ‘Miss December’ and the epitome of the strong & beautiful black woman living her dreams. Here’s more about Miss December.
Where are you from?
When did you start modeling?
I started modeling when I was in middle school. My counselor and mentor Virginia Owens was a successful model and she got me started with SMG Model Management.
What drives/drove you to pursue a career in the modeling/fashion industry?
I really felt that I had a unique look with being dark skin with natural green eyes and I had the height so I figured, “Let me see how the industry responds to me.”. Not to mention, I really wanted to see more ethnic models in the high fashion magazines. Someone that young black girls can relate to.
What are some of your best/worst experiences modeling?
The best experience for me is living out my reality and testing my confidence and ambition because this industry is not easy. I would say a disadvantage of this industry is that in all the major magazines, there is still less than 3% of minorities represented. Flipping through magazines, knowing that you will only see a 1-5 pages of someone who you can relate to is very disheartening especially when we are consumers and just a beautiful.
What advice would you give to hopeful models?
I would say be faithful, ambition and consistent. Never stop no matter how many times you hear no because you will hear a yes when it’s your time!
What is your dream job?
How can you be booked?
I would say my eyes and my skin 🙂
What are some of the jobs/campaigns you’ve been booked for or are recognized in?
What do you do to stay in ‘Model’ Shape?
Eating well and bikram yoga…
