Nejilka @ D1 www.instagram.com/nejilka/
Home Town: From Dominican Republic – now in New York
What do you do? Model (for now)
What do you want to do? Loads! Too many. At the moment maybe a fashion buyer or creative director – I love fashion.
Pros of modelling? Travelling, meeting new people, artists and friends.
Cons of modelling? Racial bias
How did you get into modelling? I used to work at Marc Jacobs as an intern – 16 years old with a shaved head. People kept telling me I should model. A year later I got scouted, my friend was a photographer and shot some tests of me and said I should submit them to an agency.
Advice to younger models: I think the most important thing is to stay true to yourself in this industry. It can be very saturated. I am me, and only me.

Home Town: That’s Classified
What do you do? Model, fuck shit up, dollars + bitches, professional chiller, weed connoisseur
Pros of modelling? Next question
Cons of modelling? Self consciousness, testing your confidence, narcissism, worrying about your weight and height.
Something no one knows about you? I buy sweaters too small for me so it feels like I’m having a hug.
Advice to younger models: Never lose who you are, it’s very easy to get caught up in a busy, demanding atmospheres. Accept creative criticism but remember to always put your true happiness first.
Sami @ D1 www.instagram.com/samisomebody/
Home Town: Minnesota
What do you do? Model. Studying history and legal stuff for my Mom.
What do you want to do? History Professor. I want to teach, travel and explore, maybe creative direction.
Pros of modelling? Travelling, I never thought I’d leave home and wouldn’t have seen the world otherwise. I’m the first of my family to have a passport.
Cons of modelling? It’s the worst for self confidence. The way people make you feel.
Something no-one knows about you? My tits get bigger whenever I go back to the states, I think they put oestrogen in the water.
Advice to young models: If you’re uncomfortable, say something. If someone tries to pressure you into something and you’re not 100%, SAY SOMETHING. To a booker, a parent, anyone. Don’t keep that shit to yourself.
