I am very creative and put all my emotions through art. I love to express myself to different odd fashion; instead of being basic like everybody else.
Raven, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as Model?
I want to be an actress and print model. My mother has always put through agency and different photographers. We were scammed a couple of times, but we haven't stop because of that.
Who is your inspiration in life, Raven? How do you stay inspired as a Model?
My mother is my inspiration because she does a lot for me and keeps me busy to do what I love. She is my number one supporter and has not given up on me on this modeling career because she knows I have potential. I stayed inspired as a model through people who keep telling me to do modeling.
We all make mistakes Raven; we wish we could take back. What was the mistake you made in the past that you wish you can take back?
My biggest mistake that I wish I can take back is missing the Yeezy open call that my friend told me to attend because, at that moment in time, I gave up modeling. Therefore, giving up and missing opportunities are the biggest mistakes anyone can have. Go for it! Go for it!
Raven, How do you describe yourself in terms of working with clients?
I am very professional and mature. I like to get things done. Therefore, I know when its time to work; I go into serious mode, and when its time to chill, that is when I can be a social butterfly. Also, I am very diligent. So I expect to work with clients that like to work hard too because in order to get a good result; you must put in work.
Please tell us, Raven, how do you prioritize work, social life, friends, and family?
I put me the most important things first, so if I got to go to work, then that is that. My social life can come later. I like to plan too. Therefore, I would work all week, and every once I hang out with friends and family.
Raven, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
I have no example.
Raven, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model.
Walking on a runway was the most proudful thing I experienced as a model because I was the only short one and people were shocked, but also amazing. I felt so special coming down a dress that was hard to walk and having the cameras flash in my face.
Raven, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
I remember in school. I was making this art piece out of different magazines. The fun part was expressing myself and putting in time into something I knew would pay off. However, the difficult part was time because I could only do in school, and there were times where I wanted to finish it. It took some time too.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
Don't let anybody discourage you. Keep fighting because somebody will notice you. There are many chances out there, so take every one of them and shine like a star!
