Tell us a little about yourself.
My family is originally from Senegal, so that's where I claim, but I was born in New Jersey and grew up between Senegal and Florida. I moved to New York from Tampa, Florida two years ago, and have been working in philanthropy since. I got into modeling almost inadvertently. I've had offers and opportunities in the past, but didn't take advantage because I was either too afraid or didn't have approval from my parents. Recently, one of my colleagues really got into photography and started taking pictures of me (in the office, mind you). We took some decent headshots, and I submitted them to JAG, not really expecting anything. Fast forward a few days, and I was sitting in this cool space in Chelsea discussing a contract with JAG.
