7H: When did you find a love for modeling?
NJ: I’ve always had a love for modeling but I didn’t actually turn my dreams into reality until February 2016.
7H: How competitive is the modeling industry?
NJ: In my opinion, the modeling industry is very competitive but at the same time it’s not. You just have to be different and you will find your spot in the industry.
7H: From a complement stand point, what do you get complimented more on?
NJ: I get complimented most on my smile and legs.
7H: When it comes to branding, what do you think is more important to have? A solid portfolio, or alot of followers?
NJ: To me, a solid portfolio matters the most.
7H: How do you go about finding a good photographer to work with?
KH: Me personally I look at their past work, clients they shoot with, how they shoot and their level of professionalism.
7H: What tips or advice would you give other females looking to model?
NJ: Shoot as much as possible and be different! Don’t try and follow a trend, do what comes to mind and what you’re comfortable with.
7H: How does it make you feel when you have warm support from your fans?
KH: It makes me feel happy and very blessed to have people supporting me and looking up to me.
7H: What would you like to see more in your area when it comes to beauty and fashion?
NJ: More fashion. There’s not a lot of real, classic, creative fashion here in Atlanta.
7H: Thanks for the quick interview Nikia. Hopefully we will see some of your beauty work in one of our future issues.
