This being our second time, how do you feel about Black Men magazine dedicating an issue to browner skinned models?

I think it’s cool, but would have been more excited if the number were higher. Women of darker complexion like myself aren't really showcased as much as women of lighter skin.

 

Do you think darker skinned models are booked less? Why?

Yes, of course! Reason is because we as a people are brainwashed into believing lighter skin is more beautiful. Women of lighter skin are mainly promoted. It's really all you see in most music videos and hear in music—no hate. I just think there’s beauty and ugly in all skin tones.

 

Describe your type of man.

A man who is strong and powerful. He's not ashamed of all the responsibilities he has to master when it comes to taking care of his queen and his home. He is very romantic and believes in monogamy. He is worldly and very cultured.

 

Name five things a man should never say to you...

1. “You're fat.” He better mean “P-H-A-T!” [Laughs.]

2. Anything disrespectful or degrading.

3. “What’s up with your hair?”

4. “My ex used to...” It’s okay here and there, but not all the time.

5. “Where you going?” or “Where you been” during the “getting to know me stage.” I will cut him off!

Girls night—you and your girls sip wine and the subject most commonly discussed is...

Sex, sex and more sex! [Laughs.]

 

Besides Kerry Washington, Michele Obama and Jennifer Hudson, name five famous, beautiful dark-skinned women.

Lupita Nyong'o, 
Grace Jones, Naomi Campbell, 
Jessica White and Serena Williams.

 

Tell people what you feel when you hear: "You’re pretty for a dark-skinned girl."

Ignorance is still very much alive—contrary to the evolving times. Even when we thought dark skin was in, the memo must have only been about the “brothas,” because “sistas” have still been getting the most cringe-worthy compliment ever to be spoken: “Wow! You're pretty for a dark girl!” What? As a dark-skinned “sista,” let me speak for every other dark girl out there when I say, I thought pretty was determined upon your features and the way you carried yourself, not by the shade of your skin. A woman is never “pretty for a dark girl,” she’s beautiful because that’s simply what she is inside and out. This by any means is not a compliment! I’m very annoyed when I hear this type of foolery. I absolutely hate when people say this to me. It’s a major insult and an ignorant statement. It's very sad when I still see grown ass men and women debating and perpetuating this ugly thing called colorism. We did not create this, but we help spread it, and fund it. Dark skin women are so beautiful. I love that I am a dark skinned woman. I used to hate being dark skinned, and most people don't know I used to get teased and bullied for it—but now, I can honestly look back and say “thank you” to those who placed those insecurities upon me, because it pushed me into loving myself and believe that I am a beautiful, black, chocolate woman, and I am not ashamed of it.

 

Tell us something amazing about you that we wouldn't know besides seeing how beautiful you are to us.

Most people are shocked when they find out what I do for a living. Most would guess that I’m a stripper or bartender. I am in fact a steel worker. I've been working in a steel factory for 11 years now. I started out as a crane operator and carried around 300 tons of molten steel, which is about 2,900 degrees. Throughout the years, I stepped up to positions where I was the first and only female to qualify in the history of steel making, which is actually pouring and casting the steel. It gets really hot and it’s hard at times, but I enjoy it [laughs].

 

Give an encouraging word to fellow darker skinned models looking to make a career in this business. 

I would like to offer a word of encouragement to any young lady and adult right down to seniors, because it’s so pervasive in our community. A lot of times people suffer in silence. I would say stay true to who you are and know that your color doesn’t make you nor does it take anything away from you. When you love yourself, the world has no choice in loving you back. When you hate who you are, the world laughs. With that being said, my dark-skinned ladies love yourself and know your worth! Don't let anybody put you down because of the color of your skin! Once this is embedded in your brain, there's no stopping you.
