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.
