Why do you model?
Honestly I never really had a passion to be a model, but I just loved taking pictures. I have always been told that I should be a model because of how I look and dress. I was kind of discouraged by my height because I am only 5”2, but I feel like if you really put your mind to it and work hard for what you want you will succeed, so I’ve been searching around for an agency to represent me by sending out comp cards. I have gained exposure from working with Key Air Angels; we are involved in charity, modeling/fashion, encouraging and the uplifting of all women.
Where do you see your career in 3 years?
In 3 years I see myself graduating from college, officially starting my journalism career as a magazine designer, and moving to California or New York. Also I can see myself doing part-time modeling who knows maybe even full-time modeling.
Where can readers see your work?
Everyone can see my work at www.dhdesignphotography.com and search my name (Lamisha) on the website and on my Instagram @MiishaMae.
What was your motivation behind starting your modeling career?
My motivation is my family they support me in everything I do, especially my mom she always pushed me to be the best I can be from when I was younger till now. My boyfriend Lonzell has also been a big supporter of my career. He has supported everything that I've done. At my last photo shoot, he stood outside in the freezing cold just to support me. He is truly a big part of my life.
Also my supporters on social networks, like on Instagram girls would leave comments on my pictures telling me I motivate them and inspire them to do what they always dreamed of really means a lot to me, and goes to show that others are watching me that’s a really good feeling . All the positive feedback I get from everyone really pushes me to be great and not to give up.
What publication would you love to be the face of?
I would love to be the face of Vogue one day.
What are some of your favorite places to shop?
Some of my favorite brands are American apparel, Urban Outfitters, H&M and Forever21.
What does confidence mean to you?
Confidence means loving yourself for who you are, embracing every flaw about yourself because everyone isn’t perfect. I feel like in order to be truly happy you have to have confidence because our society today will do anything to see you fall. You have to keep your head up. Everyone is beautiful in their own way.
What is your biggest dream or aspiration?
My biggest dream is to not only work for Vogue but to work with Vogue. I really want to be their magazine designer/ art director and become a known worldwide model and apparel model, to travel the world and move to New York or California. Whatever I do I just want to be known as the girl who accomplished her goals and never gave up.
What fashion story describes you in a nutshell?
I’m a chill-laid back type of girl like I absolutely love wearing oversized t-shirts and sweat shirts with jeans and a pair of sneakers like Nikes or Ugg boots. I like being comfortable and not feeling like I’m doing too much.
If you could shop anywhere, where would it be?
I would go shopping in London, Paris and New York.
What career advice do you have for TheeFashionStories readers?
My career advice for my readers is to never give up on what you want to do. Always have tunnel vision and don’t let what people say about what you’re doing stop you. Always remain you and stay true to yourself. Don’t be afraid to mess up or make mistakes no one is perfect; it’s okay to make mistakes because you will learn from them along the way.
Who are you trying to reach with your work?
With my work I’m trying to reach girls from all over, that you have to be confident in whatever you do, always stay positive. I want girls to know if you really want something go for it, now-a-days things aren’t handed to you, you have to be a go getter and go and get it. You have to be head strong and ALWAYS be yourself.
