Name: Mon Petite
Location: High Point, NC
1. What inspired you to get into this industry?
I have always loved fashion and photography. When I was approached by a photographer to do a shoot I was surprised because I do not fit the typical model
mold, but I thought it would be a fun experience. From there I continued to take the opportunities given and it transformed into a passion that I am quickly
turning into a career. I style and creative direct all of my own shoots and have now begun to build a portfolio so I can work with other models as well.
2. How long have you been modeling?
I am very new to the modeling world. My first photo shoot ever was not even 6 months ago.
3. Who is your favorite model?
My favorite model has always been Kate Moss. When she started in the industry she totally broke down barriers and paved the way for more petite models as
well as anyone who did not fit the industry standard. Her career has lasted and I consider her to be one of the first "alternative" models to break into the fashion
4. Tell us something random about yourself.
I love fashion and most men would probably assume I am high maintenance when they first see me, however, on the inside I am one of the guys. I drink beer,
curse way too much, and I think farts are funny every time! I like to dress up and go out, but I have just as much fun lounging around in our pajamas on a
Sunday afternoon eating chicken wings and telling dirty jokes.
5. What are you most proud of?
I am proud that no matter how many times I have fallen or been pushed down I have always picked myself back up and persevered. I may be 4'10," but I can
stand pretty damn tall when I need to!
6. Upcoming projects?
I have a few magazines and at least one cover coming out very soon. I am also looking into getting into product promotions and creating my own brand. I don't
want to just be a model, I want to be an empire!
7. When it's all said and done, what do you want to be remembered as?
I would like to be remembered as a good person who used the opportunities I have been given to make a difference for the people I love and the causes I care
