2. Tell us about your work as a model?
I don't portray myself as a model, of course I do shoots to build my portfolio as a dancer and entertainer but I wouldn't say I'm a model.
3. How does being an MUA and model work hand in hand for you?
I've been doing Makeup for three years, I received my certificate from Bennett Career Institute , but the funny thing is I pay another artist to give me the BEAT for my shoots lol!
4. How long have you been dancing and where do you dance at?
I've been dancing for 17 years, I started at the age of 7 with "KKMM"in which Karla Hooker is the owner and dance instructor , I had an awesome mentors such as Ebony Hamilton, Sharonda Sullivan and Bruce Blair. I've danced with Duke Ellington Performing Arts School as well as the Dance Theatre of Harlem Residency Program ,all in which are based in Washington,DC . I am now the owner of 4play Exotic Dance based in Washington,DC (1 year strong as of Feb 13,2016)
5. Tell us about your original creativity as a 4 Play Instructor?
4play was created as an outlet for the everyday working woman, as a single mom , I struggled balancing my personal life and work, it became overbearing and I didn't have an outlet , I gained weight and fell into a state of depression, I didn't feel sexy or attractive anymore, I didn't feel like I was worth taking a second look..I tried working out and dieting . It didn't work for me ! So I got in the studio one day and decided to record myself. I've always been a fan of exotic dance but more so floor and chair work because you can put your own spin on it ! I posted the video on Instagram , and it went crazy ! From that day forward I vowed to start a class for women who struggle with self esteem issues and those who are body conscious, and for those women who just need a break from their everyday routine, it's also a great way to spice things up with your spouse
6. How can people contact you or see your work?
You can contact me via IG/Facebook : Stormthevixen or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

H.U.S.T.L.E.R - How U Survive This Life Everyday, Resourcefully
8. What is something most people don't know about you?
Despite the 17 years of training I've had I am clumsy as hell lol
9. Who inspires you to keep grinding when times get hard?
My son and my family , they mean the world to me! My mom, sisters and brothers are my role models. I just wanna win so I can take care of them
10. Any last words or shoutouts?
I just want to Thank God for showing me my purpose on earth , which is aspire to inspire!
I wanna show love to Tiffany Metts , Talaya O'neal and Ashle Thomas for always believing in me , they have been with me since Day 1. I love you ladies, also a special shoutout to Namir, Troy , Tyrel and Jeph These men have supported me and I had to never once question their loyalty ! Always be true to yourself and everything else will fall into place .
