Our readers would love to get to know you more Jai. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you, your brand or the services you offer?
I am a published model, and I would like to share with the world how pain can be turned into Beauty through self-love. I promised myself that after my struggles my goal would be sharing personal events of my life that will help influence others in the same position. If we all experience self-love we can share with the world that anything is possible with guidance and love!
Jai, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
My passion is to influence men and women that if you love yourself first it down to matter how you fit into this world. I started as a model first sharing nice photos, then wanting to share that no matter the size or shape of your body that if you feel good, you look good! So then I began to pick up self-love advocate jobs, and from there I want to grow even bigger to share more of my testimony.
Who is your inspiration in life Jai? How do you stay inspired as Model?
My biggest inspiration is my daughter. When I had her, I went through postpartum depression and felt like giving up. But as my daughter grew older, I found that she was given to me to be my guardian angel. She loves me every day which makes me push to be more and show her that if you stay, I'm fine to self that you can do and be anything that you want in life.
We all make mistakes Jai; we wish we could take back. What was the mistake you made in the past that you wish you can take back?
The mistake I made that I would take back is not starting to model earlier in life. I had a really big opportunity and passed it up because my self-esteem was very low.
Jai, How do you describe yourself regarding working with clients?
I am a team player I love positive energy because that's what I give. I'm open to all opinions and constructive criticism if needed. I am patient and willing to learn new things.
Please tell us Jai, how do you prioritise work, social life, friends, and family?
Everything that I do for work, friends, family and social life are included in my daily life. I leave space for everything all day. Family time is every evening. Social life is my weekends. I work with my friends.
Jai, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
I proa mote with a company and we needed to host a show. The team wanted to go all the way around with finding participants, but I persuaded them to it into a contest with a monetary prize which drew people in super quick. We had too many people. But we did have qualifications which limited the intake.
Jai, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model.
My proudest moment was when the international magazine asked me to be a feature. I was proud because they are based out of the UK, and don't have many African American features. It was an awesome experience!
Jai, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
A time of creativity is when I was doing a shoot at the beach on a freezing day, but I had the trick of heating my body so that it could be more comfortable and the cold wouldn't show on my face.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?*
In the model world, there is a lot to learn so you must be patient and no matter the people remain the same person that you are. Don't let anyone take you out of your character. Always strut your stuff, people will always be watching.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state what type of collaboration you are looking for?
