When I first found out I was coming to New York I set two major goals for myself while I was out there - book a show for fashion week and shoot with Tarrice Love (@bytarricelove)! My reason for being so set on shooting with Tarrice was not only because his work is incredible, but also because of his continued support of coloured models. I knew that if I was given the opportunity to work with him I would be benefiting both my portfolio and overall knowledge of being a black model in the fashion industry. When I first arrived to shoot with Tarrice we were able to sit down and talk for about an hour before shooting. It was during this conversation that we were able to share personal experiences from within the industry, but I was also able to receive some great insight through Tarrice's experience with other models. This opportunity was definitely a milestone in my career as well as a highlight from my time in New York.
