Slightly over a year ago, I discovered a beautiful, inspiring girl by the brand name @secretlyjuly on Instagram.
Her inspirational journey is one of a kind, as she used to be bullied in high school for her looks. July did not let this take her down, as she concentrated more on the positives.
As a singer, songwriter, actress, and hip-hop queen, Nicki Minaj has spent her career juggling a multitude of roles, and her latest move brings her into yet another creative sphere—modeling. Signing to Wilhelmina’s celebrity division, Minaj becomes the latest star to add professional posing to her repertoire.
It’s not accidental that South African actor Suraya-Rose Santos became the first-rising star she is. Her Arabic name Suraya means “bright starlight”. Currently based in Canada and spending time in LA, growing her performing talent, the super gorgeous thespian is the ultimate definition of cool.
This week’s model to watch is Dianne Beharry from Trinidad & Tobago. She just started modeling back in March, and everything has changed rapidly for her. Her decision was strategic, as she didn’t want to be a runway model as she is short.
Being a model is never easy, not just because of the straining requirements that come with the job, but because you also need to keep touch with other life facets. Because of this, you need to work extra hard to be on top of the game.
