3 Up And Coming Models At Howard University That You Need To Know

Howard University’s hill is more of a catwalk than an actual walkway. The term “dress for success” if one of the biggest understatements I have ever heard when applied to our university. While I have seen some of the most beautiful women in the world simply walking to their history class, there are many women on Howard University’s campus who aspire toward a career in modeling. I’m not talking about the casual Instagram model, I mean these women have put in time to perfect their craft. They walk in shows, model for fashion websites, start their own make-up companies, and use their platforms as models to put good into the world. These are Howard Women. Confident, beautiful, black and striving.

When did you start modeling?: I started at 19 when my personal style blog, petiteetchic.com, dropped in April. I model my personal style. Being that I'm very small, I'm showing petite females how I dress for my size. My modeling is a way for me to display my passion for styling.

What outside modeling projects are you working on?: I'm on the executive board for Howard University's Elite Models as a stylist. As a stylist, I pick clothing and accessories for Elite photo shoots and fashion shows.

TikTok Made Me Buy It: Flawless's Skincare Fridge

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.


I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.

I Asked Instagram How 2020 Was, And Maybe It Wasn't The Worst Year Ever

2020 is a year to remember but it's not as bad as we made it out to be.


It's finally 2021 and we're honestly all just happy that 2020 is over. I decided to ask my Instagram followers how they felt about 2020 and the results were a little more mixed up than expected.

Ever since I watched "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," I've been a major Matthew McConaughey fan. I've seen most of his movies, and I definitely got way too excited when he finally made an Instagram! So when he announced he would be releasing a memoir titled "Greenlights," I knew I absolutely had to get my hands on this book. And so did the rest of the world, as the book began to flood social media.

Truthfully, I would much rather read a fiction book and dive into another world than read a nonfiction book - even if it is one of my favorite celebrities. But I had a feeling this book wouldn't disappoint or bore.
