3. It’s great that you are an advocate of heart health, but you’re also an aspiring model. Can you share more of your journey about model Modeling was a childhood dream of mine, but I was afraid to pursue it. After having surgery I wanted to try it. The fear was still there. But, through mentorship my Mentor, Di’Mon Brown and family/ close friends encouraged me to go after modeling. I trained for a year and a half by getting my body physically fit to enter the field. I started out walking in fashion shows in 2016. Eventually, I worked with two companies. One is The Living Dolls Project. Through TLDP I became the Mentor/ Model Coordinator Assistant. The other company is KatLady Productions where I became the Model/ Marketing Assistant. Lastly, in March 2019, I won a Cover Model contest and became the cover girl for a magazine called Beautiful & Dauntless.
