As I write this, I am packing my bags to go to Washington, DC. While there, I will be performing with Wolfpac at the Juggalo March and afterparty, as well as, doing plenty of shoots along the way. In October, I will be a guest judge for the cosplay contest at Megafest 6 in Memphis, TN. I have a lot in the works for the upcoming months as well as next year but I don’t want to say anything until everything is set in stone. I am hoping since winter is coming up, I will get a little extra time so I can work on my cosplays. I have a lot of ideas I'm really excited about working on.
Every body is beautiful. Take a good look find something you think is beautiful about yourself embrace what makes you different. Don't listen to negative people a lot of times negativity comes from jealousy or ignorance. Again reach out to other females see the beauty in each other. Make one friend practice building eachother up finding the beauty in each other and point it out. You'd be surprised how finding the beauty in others that arent "cookie cutter perfect" will make you feel better about you. Everyone sees beauty differently.
I am originally from Jacksonville, North Carolina a marine base "Camp Lejeune". I am Filipino and black and my previously lived in New Haven, Connecticut and Silver Springs, Maryland before moving to Atlanta, Ga. I am an only child with a God sibling who passed away from gun violence. I've been modeling since I was 18 with my first publishing being in "Hotlanta Magazine" as a hair model. Years after I started urban modeling and now I'm breaking away from that and doing lifestyle modeling and lingerie model, but only lingerie because I own my own lingerie line called "CaressByManila". I am a criminal justice major, and I'll be obtaining my bachelors in Criminal Justice May 2018. I already have my Assocoates of Applied Science of Criminal Justice, I am apart of the American Criminal Justice Association, I am a Notary of the public, and I just received my certificate of appreciation from PETA. Upon graduation I wanted to work with juveniles as a juvenile probation officer or counselor. I also have my dealership license and I flip cars as well!
Another thing that I do to prepare for a shoot is to get myself into the proper mindset. I always make sure that I have a great of confidence in me before I go into a shoot, it actually shakes off any nervousness I have. Along with making sure that I have a high level of confidence when I go into a shoot I go mentally go through poses in my head. This helps me get into a rhythm for the shoot. The night prior to the shoot I would pack all of the items that were requested or that I would need for the shoot. The day of the shoot I would do my hair and makeup myself unless the photographer would request a specific styling of makeup or my hair. In these cases I would go to my makeup artist or hair stylist. Before I leave to the shoot I go through a mental checklist to ensure that I have everything that I need. Bikini photo shoots are roughly the same process as a regular photo shoot. The only key difference with bikini shoots and lingerie shoots compared to others is trying to be relaxed and comfortable. In these shoots your body is a little more exposed that you normally are. So trying to remain comfortable and relaxed around your photographer will make the shoot a lot more fun.
