An interview with model, Stephon Lawrence.
Where are you from?
How do you identify?
I am a cis-het black woman & lgbtq+ ally.
What inspired you to become a model?
I've always loved fashion and expressing myself through clothes. I would flip through fashion magazines looking at the models and think "that could be me one day." I was so camera shy though, but encouragement from friends and family has helped me get over that, and pursue my goals.
Can you tell us about the photos in your portfolio?
I've only recently started building my portfolio, but I want it to show that I'm capable of commercial, and editorial, that I have a keen eye for style, and can carry any garment well. It shows that I have a unique look and the kind of charisma that draws people in.
Tell us something we would not know about you, from looking at your portfolio.
I'm really into learning new languages and hope to be fluent in at least 4 languages someday.
Who do you look up to in the modeling industry?
I think it's no surprise--Naomi Campbell! I also look up to some of my favorite models, Roseline Lawrence, Precious Lee, and Paloma Elsesser. They're all big inspirations for me and I aspire to reach the heights they have.
What advice would you give your younger self?
Don't let other people's doubts about you rule your life.
How can people contact you?
A DM always works! I'm on IG & TikTok @alphaheauxx I also answer emails at firstname.lastname@example.org
