Kierra Monique expresses being in sync with self and having self-love can help you overcame negativity projected onto her at a young age. She resides in Memphis, TN.
Where do you reside: Memphis, Tennessee
What’s your definition of confidence? Owning your truth, being who you are. Being in sync and in love with your inner and outer self where not one person in society can tell you otherwise.
Dream job or gig? My dream jobs are to walk in the Victoria Secret Fashion show and take part in a campaign/fashion show for Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty and Fenty Beauty.
Favorite modeling experience? My current favorite modeling experience would be shooting for this makeup company, Ayele and Co. I was pushed out of my comfort zone, and I met so many amazing people, and I’m forever grateful to them for that.
Dream travel destination? I don’t necessarily have one specific place I desire to travel. I want to continue to travel and learn more about other cultures.
Have you ever had body image issues? Oh yes, growing up, definitely! Always being told you’re too small, you need to eat; and being picked on in middle school for it can really do damage to one’s vision of self.
Favorite quote? “To walk in balance is to have heaven and earth in harmony.”
If you were not a model, what profession would you be doing? I feel if I weren’t a model, I would still find myself within the fashion/art world doing something.
