Orlando, FL. USA.
Tell us about yourself.
Hi, I am Jamaicia James and I am a 20 year old collegiate track and field athlete and now model. My dreams of becoming a model has finally come true.
What is your biggest dream?
I would my biggest dream is to be the best version of myself, I want to exceed to my fullest potential and make a name for myself in the modeling world as a petite model.
What does it mean to be your own kind of beautiful?
To be your own kind of beautiful, to me means being yourself and loving the way God has created you. It may be difficult with today’s beauty standards placing the perception that if you don’t look a certain way then your not beautiful. Everyone is created differently for a reason, and it’s our own unique beauty and personality which makes each person special. Personally, I felt this way in the modeling world that because I’m too short or I don’t have certain features that I wasn’t good enough. Never again! We are enough and we are all beautiful.
Tell us about your modeling experience.
I have been told by some of the biggest agencies in the US/UK that I am beautiful but too short or not what they are looking for. This discouraged me a lot because I began doubting myself, maybe I’m not meant to be a model, maybe I’m not good enough, maybe I should find a different career path. My modeling experience so far has not been ideal but shooting with photographers and creating art is the big picture. And I love it.
What is your dream brand to model for?
Fashion/editorial and print modeling for sure.
How would you describe your fashion style?
My fashion style varies, I like to keep it cute and flirty and on other days I like to look like a fashionable boss who just cashed a million dollar check haha.
How important is self-awareness and confidence to you in your everyday life?
Oh, self awareness and confidence is so important! I have to have confidence in my everyday life or I will not have made it this far. I am very sociable and love to engage and network with people.
What makes you beautiful?
My heart. Everything I do, I do with my heart and with love. It doesn’t cost anything to be kind to someone, it doesn’t cost anything to be a friend, to work hard for something you love, it doesn’t cost anything to be a decent human being. And I want every person who meets me to say, wow she is such a good person. A persons heart and soul makes them beautiful. You can be the worlds most beautiful person but if your heart is ugly, then so are you.
What would you say to another girl your age who is struggling with their confidence?
Hunnyy, why don’t you look in the mirror! Look at the features on you that are beautiful and exotic and stop comparing your features to others. What your insecure about someone else is dying to have.
