Our readers would love to get to know you more Teisha. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?
I'm a fashionista, and I have a natural model walk that draws a lot of attention to me.
Teisha, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
My passion is to get people to open their minds and be creative. One aspiration of mine, in the long run, is to be a successful fashion designer and I feel the practice my modelling career gives me would make me the best I can be
Who is your inspiration in life Teisha? How do you keep inspired?
I inspire myself. Not a lot of people are as determined as me to get my career going. I am willing to take every step I need to take to become a supermodel. Just me keeping hope alive inspires me enough to keep pushing.
We all make mistakes Teisha; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Model; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
No prior professional model experience, but a photographer I worked with was very judgmental about my choice of clothing which made me uncomfortable, and I wasn't as eager to do the shoot. I learned that there's always going to be people that don't agree with you but as long as I keep my faith and don't get discouraged, I'll be more successful next time.
Teisha, 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?
If I were in a position to deliver customer service to everyone, I would be as general as possible, giving everyone an even amount of service, but focus more on the serious clients
Please tell us Teisha, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
No prior model experience, but when I went to an audition, I was expected to know how to slay the correct way. Luckily I watched many YouTube videos on how to walk the runway before the audition and passed that test. The only minor reason that held me back from getting a spot was money issues.
Teisha, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
I showed my co-workers a way to place sandwiches in the oven to avoid cold sandwiches, and it works effectively every time.
Teisha, 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?
As an aspiring model, my great accomplishment would be getting noticed by lots of agencies through Instagram and model management account. A lot of people love my choice of outfits and how I pose with them on through pictures. It makes me even more confident to keep pushing forward.
Teisha, 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 did an urban shoot of my idea. I just knew I needed graffiti in the background to make it pop. I chose to wear a mostly pink outfit because I'm obsessed with pink, and it just so happened the graffiti we found under a highway was the same color as my outfit. I was relieved of my worries of not finding good graffiti art to take a picture next to.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
Open up your mind to creativity. Before becoming a model, you have to know exactly what you're capable of. Keep pushing forward.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state what type of collaboration you are looking for?
I'm looking to collaborate with fashion companies.
Now for the best part Teisha! Please upload 5-10 photos so we can get to see your work.
