I had the pleasure of interviewing Shante Armstrong, a model in the Jacksonville, FL area. She is known for her fierce runway walk and photo work. We didn’t have much time but thankfully she was more than happy to give a quick interview and photo session for Anzzia.com!
So, what are you working on currently? “The Jacksonville Magazine Fashion Contest is my full focus at the moment. Going to the fittings and watching the designers’ creation come to life is amazing really….”
What is it about modeling that keeps you interested and loving what you do? “I’ve been modeling for 13+ years now. I’m a real people person so I like networking, meeting industry professionals and new models that are looking to be where I’m at in my modeling career one day.”
Have you had to deal with any “Mean girls” while modeling? “I’ve had to deal with that but it happens unfortunately. I’ve also been called a “mean girl”, but I’m not really… I just take this business seriously and absolutely love this industry. SO I feel if you are on an assignment, it should be respected.”
