Kiweana Bailey is a new fresh face!
The 21-year-old from North Carolina who now currently resigns in Richmond Virginia is currently breaking barriers and starting her new career as a model.
“Well I started when I was young…doing runway. I took a break but came back and I’ve been doing it a little over a year now.”
According to Bailey, watching shows like America’s Next Top Model is what sparked her interested in modeling.
“Seeing beautiful girls getting pretty, just to take pictures and walk… I just knew that this was for me.”
Bailey isn’t signed to any modeling agency at the time, but she is currently discussing deals with different agencies.
Of course, overcoming the everyday struggles as a model in today’s age isn’t the easiest thing to do. When asked about her personal struggles, this was her response!
“Figuring out whose legit, and who is just selling dreams.”
In today’s society, social media has become a virtual portfolio for top selling models as well as inspiring models. We were curious to know how did Bailey use her social media platforms to showcase her artistry.
“I use my Instagram to show off the real me,” she said.
A source revealed that the model, Kiweana Bailey, has had opportunities to work with some designers and local brands to help build her portfolio.
“I’m just starting to work with brands… one is for a company called Royal Family.”
Bailey also teased some new magazine partnerships that will be getting released soon.
“You can tune into that via Instagram @kiwe_fruit.”
The model, Bailey, was asked to share her top five favorite models in the industry and the list was a major line up.
“Tyra Banks, Niomi Campbell, Bella Hadid, India Love and Eva Marcille.”
Whew, talk about heavy hitters!
Kiweana Bailey also closed out the interview giving us some insight on her future plans for the next 5-10 years.
“Graduated with a degree in sports medicine… have my modeling and acting career kick off…happy, booked and busy while living the dream.”
We see this face going very far and we’re excited to see her growth!
