Faith. Tell us ABOUT yourself.
Fashion has always been apart of me since I was a young girl. I would strategically pick out my clothes for school making, sure everything was coordinated yet different in some way. Growing up in the small town of Gallatin, TN, most people get stuck and afraid to venture out and try new things. Me, I like a challenge, Different is me! In my early 20s I began trying to fulfill my dreams of becoming a model. I would get auditions to certain agency's who require payment of no less than $2,000. Knowing I didn't have that kind of money o would give up but still always found my way back in front of the camera. I feel so natural and in my happy place doing the thing I love to do the most! Here I am at 25, mother of Two(Levi 3, Denim 1), at the age where they say is the end of the road for female models yet I feel more sure than ever that this is where I belong. I'm ready to show everyone that dreams do come true, when you put your mind to it and don't let anything or anyone stop you from doing what you love to do most.
Our readers would love to get to know you more Faith. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?
Growing up I was a TomBoy, so I was very athletic and competitive. Not a girly girl at all. Of course through the years, I grew and matured, now heels are my Bestfriend! I'm that down to earth, life of the party, can get along with anyone type of chic. I love to dress up and be ready for the camera at all times. My style is very vintage. Goodwill is one of my go to stores for a quick look. I say "the best outfit is the one thrown together after your third outfit attempt. I do not have to match and a matte lip to me is everything. I do have a edgy but sexy side to me as well.
Faith, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
My passsion in life is Love, peace and Happiness. I want everyone happy and getting along. in modeling you are able to express yourself and who you are as a person by what you wear or how you look. It's about standing out yet blending in all at the same time. I love the challenge of becoming one with what ever or whom ever you are modeling with. If I were to shoot against that chair, how can I be one with the chair all the while making eyes look at me and not the chair. I am me no matter what anyone says about me and I can express that through my Fashion.
Who is your inspiration in life Faith? How do you keep inspired?
My inspirations are my children and everyone who doubted me. Before I have my son(Levi) I felt alone, unwanted, Limited love. I entered a dark place where I was being told time after time, you are beautiful, but being my toughest critic I would always find a fault in myself. Bringing Levi into the world, I finally had someone that would love me unconditionally no matter what. Some to cry for me and depend on me to show him the love and attention he deserves, what I did not get. My daughter Denim(1) came along at the age of 24, and although I am late in age I feel this is my time to shine! I have some that say "You should have thought about modeling before you had them, now it's too late." It's never too late to follow your dreams and now I have my children who push me to follow them even more to show them "You can do anything you put your mind to, Mommy is living proof!"
