What is something most people don’t know about you?
I’m a woman of many talents! Not only am I a professional international model, but I own a nationwide staffing agency, manage brand partnerships and host events for fun. I am a multitasker by nature and love learning new talents often.
What has been your most memorable career moment so far?
I got a chance to go to Cape Town, South Africa, for three months to model. On top of working in one of the most amazing cities in the world, I was also in the process of building my business. Modeling through the day and working by night, I knew that I finally found my purpose not only as a model but as a business owner.
What is one beauty ritual you follow every day?
I always brush my teeth, wash my face, use serum and moisturize. No matter what time I get home, I will go to sleep with a clean mouth and wake up with a clean face.
What is something you can never overinvest in?
Your health! I can’t say it enough. Whether it be exercise, great-quality food, your mental health or all of the above. Investing in my health is the best decision I’ve ever made. I’ll spend my last dime on keeping myself as healthy as possible.
What is the best advice you’ve ever received?
You only have one life to live, so live. Step out of your comfort zone and treat yourself. As we are getting older, time is moving faster and our lives get busier. Normalize creating beautiful memories either by yourself or with the people you love, and do it often. @kyealexis
