Our readers would love to get to know you more Jewel. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?
I lived a few years in Tanzania, East Africa and fell in love with the beautiful colours and patterns and got inspired to create a clothing line that would mesh American and African clothing. Something wearable and sexy.
Jewel, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
I'm a lover, I've always been a people person. I want to help others, and through my clothing line, i believe I can. I started doing some runways for a local Tanzanian designer Aly Rehmtullah, and I loved it.
Who is your inspiration in life Jewel? How do you keep inspired?
My inspiration would be my son, King Julian. I would do anything to keep that beautiful smile on his face
We all make mistakes Jewel; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about a time being a Model; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
I wish I would have respected my worth and not done so many free projects. You have to know your worth and make money
Jewel, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Model, how do you go about prioritizing your clients’ needs?
I like to know the full projects and what is expected of me, what I am yo wear or bring. The more prepared I am, the smoother everything is
Please tell us, Jewel, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
I had a runway show in downtown LA, and I had to make sure I was prepared with all my things and early yo make sure I could ensure parking
Jewel, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
We had a desert shoot, and the hair and makeup team wanted to do a style that wasn't really on the theme with the shoot. So I just explained my point of view, and they agreed. I feel it has a lot to do with the way that you say things to someone
Jewel, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you just want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
I went to a casting to walk for a runway in New York, and when I nailed it, I just felt so blessed and grateful.
Jewel, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
There's a model competition where we have to make our own swimsuit. I love being creative and using th3 fabric, and how it looks on the body, the creation process of trying and failing is so much fun to me
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
My advice would be to have a thick skin. You could be the juiciest peach in the world. But not everyone likes peaches. Being confident in yourself is the key to sexy.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?
