Michelle - Rebel Heart
My BEST advice? You are your worst critic. Learn to love yourself and it all falls into place from there. Do NOT listen to the catty drama in the modeling world. It’s never worth it and it only causes you to lose focus. And NEVER compare yourself or your work to others. You are not them, and you never will be. You are you. And nobody else can ever be you. You’re one of a kind and you’ll never be replaced. Live for that NOW!
I grew up in a little town Named Clayton, New Mexico. It’s a very old school, Bible Belt town. So I’m just the Rebel Heart of a small country town. I grew up with only my father and grandmother for most of my life with no mother. My dad and grandma taught me everything I know. From the simple “yes sir/no sir” to how to fix my own vehicle with no man's help. My mother eventually popped up via social media and then later passed on my 18th birthday. I turned my pain into motivation and started working at a level 3 men’s prison 2 weeks after my mother’s death than two years later moved to Tucson, AZ with my fiancé and this is where I now reside.
Growing up I wanted to follow part of my family in the field of nursing, but the old I got, the less intriguing it was to me. I eventually wanted to go into criminal justice and actually ended up doing so for 2 years until I found modeling and I’ve never been happier
I personally idolized a couple of individuals that were almost like counselors growing up. They helped me through tough times when I didn’t really have anybody else there.
I started modeling in late 2017. I recall my first photoshoot DEFINITELY. It was Terrible hahaha. I had no idea what I was doing, I felt awkward, and the girl I was with kept getting right in my face with TERRIBLE breath. Haha but over all, it was decent. I look back and laugh so hard at that photoshoot, but we all have to start SOMEWHERE!
I don’t think there’s really a difference besides the label! Everybody is beautiful and everybody can be a model if they really wanted to be.
My first tattoo is your typical “white girl” tattoos. Hahaha I got love in an infinity sign and a heart. I was 15 years old when I got my first tattoo and it was NOT done in a shop (DONT EVER DO THAT). A lot of my tattoos do have meaning, but some of them are just because I like them. But ALL of them have a memory behind them. 😉
I am a promo model 😇 I think it’s fun! I get to learn so much about the brands and the things people are trending for and it’s awesome to always see things changing. I just recently started working for a couple of new brands and I’m SUPER excited to start showing off some of their products soon too. As of right now, I’m a promo model/ brand ambassador for (all Instagram usernames)
I think my favorite photo sessions are probably lingerie or anything with sunsets and nature 😍

My hobbies are a mile long, so I’ll just tell you my favorites. I LOVE photography. I currently use my iPhone X to capture everything beautiful in my path. (I probably have 10,000 photos on my phone already) I love drawing, rodeo, swimming, hiking, and of course, modeling 😇
2019 is all about working on myself and growth. I’m more than excited to see all the growth I can do in this year.
