Straight Official Sits Down With Marcia Polite

Almost two years ago the CEO of Apex Magazine, Antuan Wright approached me about a good friend of his. He said that he thinks Marcia should become a fleet model. He stated he felt that she would be a great addition to the organization. I spoke with her and from that point on she has been a fleet model. She is very kind with a soft voice but she gets her point across. She is very versatile in her modeling style which is always a good thing! She has been a great model that I am super proud of! In saying that, you know that I couldn’t wait to sit down and chat with her. 

Hey Marcia! How long have you been modeling? Also, what made you want to become a model?

Hey! I’ve been modeling for about 5 years now, maybe 6 lol. I always had a desire for it but I just didn’t know how to get myself into the mix if that makes sense.


Of course that makes perfect sense! Most people don’t know where to begin, so I get it! Now tell me, what was the best photo shoot you have ever had?

One of the best shoots I had was with the photographer Angelo Riley. It was a holiday themed shoot and we shot it in below freezing temperatures. I loved how everything turned out and I really showcased how beautiful I can be fully clothed too.

Yes, you can be beautiful fully dressed and sultry as well. See now that is what I am talking about with your versatility. So, with all that is going on in todays world, tell me how has the pandemic affected your modeling? 

 Omg just like everyone else the pandemic has definitely affected my modeling . I had so much stuff planned for 2020 shows, events, traveling etc. But slowly but surely everything started getting cancelled one by one . So yea it  hurt my goals and plans I had for myself.


Yes the pandemic has been rough on us all. Well moving along, how is it being a fleet model?

Being a fleet model is cool. I love how we support and uplift each other. I like how we rally behind each other with no hate or jealousy in our blood lol.

That is so true! We are like a sisterhood you know?

Girl yes we are!

That is super dope. Well since you mentioned it was hard to become a model because you didn’t know where to start. Do you have any advice for anyone who wants to get into the modeling industry?

My advice to anyone wanting to be apart of this industry is to ….. remain true to yourself and never forget why you wanted to start in the first place.

Good answer! Nothing worth having comes easy! So now provide a list of your social media links so people can follow you.

What would you rate yourself from 1-10? 10

Tell everybody your name and where you’re from?
“My name is Talisha Williams aka Tata, and I’m from Richmond, VA.”

So how long have you been modeling?
I’ve been modeling since I was 13, but I didn’t start taking it seriously till last year in September.

How did you start modeling?
I started modeling when I was 13. I went to Barbizon School of Modeling and Acting, but after facing rejection from a few agencies I stopped, and put all my focus on school. Then last September, I still loved and wanted to model so I gave it another try. I started working with local photographers, and posting my work on Instagram and Model Mayhem, and I’ve just been getting consistent work ever since.

So what are you doing with yourself besides modeling?
I am also an actress. I’ve been in local indie films, short films, and national and local TV commercials. I’m currently starring in a feature film titled “Wrong Number” that may debut on Netflix once it’s done filming. I’m also a semi-pro cheerleader for the Richmond Roughriders arena football team.

What would you say is your best feature and why?
My smile. I’ve been told it’s infectious, and can light up a room.

What else do you do for fun (besides modeling)?
I like to hang out with friends, go to the beach and go to the movies.

Do you like sports?
If so who is your favorite sports figure? I’m not into sports, but I do have a favorite football team. I like the Patriots, and Tom Brady is the goat.

What’s playing in your (iPod, iPhone, Android, music device)/Favorite Song (currently)?
Future, Sza, the Migos, Kendrick Lamar, and Lil Uzi Vert. My favorite song right now is Cardi B Bodak Yellow of course.

What’s the craziest pick up line you’ve heard from guys trying to get your attention?
In a bar a guy once told me, “hey girl did you just fall from heaven? Because you’re an angel.”

How do you get into “character” for a photoshoot?
It depends on what I’m wearing for the shoot. If it’s sexy or high fashion, I just embody those vibes once the camera starts shooting.

What’s your favorite accomplishment in modeling so far?
I have two. The first is when I went to Miami for Miami Swim Week last July, and modeled for swimsuit designers. The second is when I did a shoot for the Black Pyramid clothing line, and Chris Brown reposted it to his Instagram.

What would you say is your ultimate turn on?
A nice smile, skin and pretty eyes.

Who’s your favorite photographer?
Mert Alaş and Marcus Piggott, I’d love to do a high fashion shoot with them one day.

What’s something that most people would be surprised to find out when they actually meet you?
That I’m not stuck up. Most people see my model pics, or they see me in person, and they’ll think that. I’m not, I’m far from that. I’m very down to earth, chill and laid back. Probably the goofiest and ditziest person you’ll ever meet.

How can people get in contact with you?
For bookings you can email me at, and you can keep up with my work by following me on Instagram @_talishawilliams_ or on my website
