1. What is your name and where are you from?
Hey all ,my name is Reveney aka Princes Francis ...firstly thank you for having me on the show and for this opportunity to collaborate with ya'll... I am a freelance fashion model, 29 years young hahaha living in ENGLAND (UK) situated in Nottingham and a single mum to my 9-year-old boy. I was around 14 years old when I had my first experience with a photographer at my family home. I knew from there what my aim was for my future. It all came to a holt as at 15 years I became homeless and stayed on the streets or at friends homes when I could. It was a struggle but I got threw it. When I hit 20 I had a baby and things came to a holt for a short while and that time I became a single mum but I knew I still had my dream to make a reality but first my son was my priority.
2.Why did you choose to be a freelance model?
Well I first hooked up to agencies and spent hours and days applying for castings and updating and just didn't feel like I was really getting or making progress with them and things just wasn't moving so I decided to take things into my own hands and look for my own work via other networking sites, Gumtree, Facebook, etc. In 2014, I met the very talented author of SAY GOODBYE TO HOLLYWOOD named Anthony Quinone’s from Harlem, New York via Instagram who later in the year flew over after speaking for 6 months solid. He is very inspirational and helped me believe in myself and I thank him for that. I believe being a freelance model is being ideal for me as I like to be in control of my work and passion for what I love to do. I believe being a freelance model has opened my hidden abilities to push my self further and it keeps me motivated.
3. What difficulties have you been through on your road to success?
Well I can honestly say I’ve not really had to many difficult situations so far and I guess there are many to come as nothing is as easy as it sounds. As you know I live in the U.K., in a town called Nottingham. Unfortunately, where there are not many opportunities for models and means. I have to travel a long way no matter what. Being a single mum and following my dream has been a very difficult process with arranging the right times and dates for castings and shoots. There were times where I felt like I just couldn't do it and that was difficult to digest these thoughts. At the time I was working part time as well so I thought it was impossible to make this reality but I knew I wanted this so bad. I knew only I can change this and it was down to me no matter or how hard it played out. Its been difficult but has now change and I’ve now resolved this.
4.What are your biggest accomplishments?
I have gained a few big accomplishments throughout my journey so far. The first is I found and believed in myself... I travelled to NEW YORK, just that was a massive accomplishment as never travelled that far before. That was in 2015 where I was asked to join a few talented individuals on another radio station. It was all so overwhelming. I’ve come back from New York and now I have been travelling to for rehearsals to London for cat walk fashion shows and fashion shots. Alongside that, the people I have met along the way has been just awesome and I would like to thank everybody that has been apart of that and supported me and I’ve been given this opportunity to collaborate with you and your listens have also added to my accomplishments. Thank you.

6. What is a goal you are currently working on?
My goal that I'm currently working on is to build a unique portfolio .. he thing is I’m trying to bring natural beauty back into shoots as everyone has their own beauty within and I'm in the process of building a portfolio of myself without makeup as my aim is to push a unique natural flow of beauty into the industry and want others to be inspired for it an help people believe in themselves and be as natural as they must.
7.What do you do to keep peace in your life?
Hahaha well I try and stay away from negativity and people that I feel bring that I eliminate from my surroundings and business for peace and quite. I do what I love to do and hit the gym. I see that as my time, it helps me not just keep fit but minimizes tension haha and I love to spend quality time with my son. All of this brings peace in my life.
8. What is a hustler?
A hustler in my opinion is somebody that really wants something and will not stop until they get it. Through out my journey I’ve seen myself a bit of a hustler because I’ve worked so hard to get to where I am right now. I’ve stayed awake till crazy hours working on my next move and contacting new connections. A hustler is someone that if they want, they have to go get it. THATS A HUSTLER BABY ( haha )
9. What is your dream goal?
My dream goal is to travel around the globe and become known Fashion model worldwide and to show my son the right paths in life and that anyone can follow their dreams and make them reality if they put their mind and heart into it . YOUR DREAM IS NOT JUST IN YOUR HEAD ITS IN YOUR HEART GO GET IT.
And I’d like to say a big big thank you to DA FRONT PORCH for having me. It’s been a pleasure and a great opportunity to network with ya'll, give you all my blessings and love. Thank you
Can I also give a few shouts to everyone that has supported me from the beginning and throughout my journey I can’t explain how overwhelmed and grateful I am for your support and motivation. It means a lot. Salute
