FIERCE: FOR THOSE WHO MAY NOT BE FAMILIAR WITH YOU CAN YOU PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF?

MONIQUE: WELL I WAS BORN IN EL PASO, TEXAS WITH A  MILITARY BACKGROUND AND I HAVE GROWN UP ALL OVER THE SOUTH.

FIERCE: HOW DID YOU KNOW YOU WANTED TO BE A MODEL?

MONIQUE: UM EVER SINCE I WAS ABOUT I CAN SAY 3 OR 4 YEARS OLD OR EVEN YOUNGER THEN THAT I ALWAYS HAVE LOVED  BEING IN  FRONT OF THE CAMERA AND MY MOTHER USE TO ALWAYS EGG ME ON. I LOVE TAKING PICTURES. I KNEW I WANTED TO BE IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA MY MOM PUT ME IN PAGEANTS SINCE I WAS 3 MONTHS OLD AND EVER SINCE THEN I WANTED TO MODEL.

FIERCE: THERE ARE SO MANY DIFFERENT TYPE OF MODELS  OUT THERE NOW HIGH FASHION, CATALOG, VIDEO VIXEN, WHAT TYPE OF MODEL WOULD YOU SAY YOU ARE AND WHY?

MONIQUE: UM….I WOULD SAY MORE TOWARDS THE COMMERCIAL WITH THE COMMERCIAL  MY ATHELIC WEAR  MY STREET WEAR THISE ARE MY TWO MAIN THINGS

FIERCE: WHO INSPIRED YOU TO BE A MODEL AND WHY?

MONIQUE: AT A VERY YOUNG AGE I WAS ALWAYS WATCHING TYRA BANKS AND GROWING UP SHE HAD HER SHOWS AND I WAS ALWAYS WATCHING HER  AND SHE IS DEFINITELY ONE OF MY BIGGEST INFLUENCES

FIERCE: DO YOU THINK THAT IT IS EASIER NOW FOR AN AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMAN TO BREAK INTO THE MODELING WORLD VERSUS SAY 10 YEARS AGO?  

MONIQUE: UM I DEFINITELY  BELIVE IT IS EASIER AND PEOPLE LIKE TYRA AND NAOMI AND IMAN HAS OPENED UP A DOOR FOR US TO STEP INTO IT. I DO BELIEVE IT IS EASIER AND IT HAS GROWN MORE DIVERSE. IT IS A WHOLE CATEGORY NOW.

FIERCE: WHAT IS IT ABOUT YOU THAT MAKES YOU STAND OUT TO MAKE SOMEONE SAY “HEY I WANT HER FOR THIS SHOOT” VERSUS THE NEXT YOUNG LADY?

MONIQUE: I CAN SAY MY PERSONALITY AND MY APPEARANCE AND HAVING  A MILITARY BACKGROUND I HAD TO  LEARN HOW TO MAKE FRIENDS QUICK. IT MAKES IT EASIER FOR ME TO COMMUNICATE WITH OTHERS AND A LOT OF PEOPLE SEE THAT AND REMEMBER THAT. THEY MAY SEE THE OTHER GIRLS MAY HAVE TAKEM PRETTY PICTURES BUT REMEMBER ME BECAUE I TOOK PRETTY PICTURES AND MY PERSONALITY WAS GREAT.

FIERCE: I KNOW THAT A LOT WORK GOES INTO THESE PHOTOSHOOTS; WHAT HAS BEEN THE BEST SHOOT THUS FAR?

MONIQUE: THE MOST RECENT ONE I TOOK WITH COLBY JADE PHOTOGRAPHY IT WAS A DIFFERENT TYPE OF PHOTO SHOOT. I HAVE NEVER DONE ANYTHING WITH GRAFFITI AND WE SHOT WITH THE TRAIN TRACKS AND SHE WAS EASY TO WORK WITH.  IF YOU AND THE PHOTOGRAPHER HAVE GREAT CHEMISTRY ANY PHOTO SHOOT WILL BE GREAT.

FIERCE: WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN 5 YEARS WITH YOUR CAREER?

MONIQUE: IN 5 YEARS I DEFINITELY SEE MYSELF WITH OTHER FEMALES LOOKING UP TO ME. I KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE WILL SAY THEY SEE THEM WITH A LOT OF MONEY; IT’S ABOUT THAT BUT I ALSO SEE MYSELF INSPIRING A LOT FEMALES WHO WANT TO DO MODELING.

FIERCE: WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE A YOUNG LADY WHO MAY BE CONSIDERING GETTING INTO THE MODELING BUSINESS?

MONIQUE: THE MAIN THING IS TO ALWAYS HAVE CONFIDENCE IN WHAT YOU DO AND WHAT YOU SAY. YOU WILL BE TOLD NO MORE THAN ONCE BUT IF IT IS SOMETHING  THAT YOU REALLY WANT TO DO AND THIS IS YOUR PASSION NEVER GIVE UP ON IT.

FIERCE: IF YOU KNEW THEN WHAT YOU KNOW NOW WOULD YOU STILL PICK THIS CAREER PATH?

MONIQUE: YES I WOULD. I KNOW A LOT MORE NOW THAN I KNEW BACK THEN WHICH MAKES ME WANT IT EVEN MORE.

FIERCE: IS THERE ANYTHING THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO SAY TO YOUR FANS AND OR SUPPORTERS?

MONIQUE: I WOULD JUST LIKE TO SAY THANK YOU TO ANYBODY AND EVERYBODY WHO HAS EVER SUPPORTED ME ESPECIALLY MY MOM. SHE HAS ALWAYS BEEN BY MY SIDE SINCE I WAS YOUNGER. SHE HAS ALWAYS MOTIVATED ME AND SUPPORTED ME AND BE ON THE LOOK OUT FOR MORE THINGS TO COME.

I really enjoyed speaking with Monique. She is truly a sweet heart and I know that she will be a force to reckon with in the world of modeling. Y’all make sure to keep a eye out for this beautiful, young talented woman.
