Welcome Kayla congrats on today’s swimwear feature, how does it feel to be part of our APRIL edition… what’s the emotions you’re going through right now?
I am so excited to have my pictures featured in such an awesome magazine, thank you so much!
Introduce yourself to us in 4 sentences what makes aka Kayla Marie who she is today?
Unfortunately, in my life I have been faced with a lot of adversity. It’s taught me the importance of perseverance and keeping a positive attitude.
“I’ve always been a dreamer, and a go-getter and love to uplift others.”
What is it about modeling that made you so interested in it so much please explain in your own words?
Modeling opened the door to traveling, and making amazing friendships that will last. It also allowed me to see myself in a new light, and I grew confidence in myself. I actually never intended to model, but had a photographer insist and give me a bathing suit to shoot in, and so the story goes.
Where did this photo shoot take place and also what is the one moment of this shoot that stands out the most for you Kayla?
This shoot was actually supposed to happen at the beach, but the wind was vicious that day and it was actually quite chilly outside. So, we had to shoot it at my pool in my neighborhood!
“The moment that stands out was getting to meet Jordan, since this was our first time working together!”
You also have another hidden talent besides modeling, as we heard along the grapevine, you’re also a talented makeup artist yourself as well, please tell us a bit more about that journey?
Wow, yes, I am actually! I started this whole journey as a makeup artist that’s where all my passion really stems from. I love helping other women feel beautiful and I still do makeup actively on other models, and brides as well.
In your point of view Kayla, what will you change in the world today to make life we live on earth better, not just for ourselves but for all humanity now in the present and for the future ahead?
“I want to only ever bring kindness and love to the table.”
I don’t have room for negative energy. I want to uplift the people around me and for them to know someone loves them, because I do.
Whom would you say is your inspiration in life in what you do and stand for and why do you say so please share?
My Mom… Without a doubt. She’s encouraged me to follow my dreams and pushed me when I didn’t believe in myself. She’s a single mom, so I grew up surrounded by her hustle. It made me want a better life for not only myself, but my mom too.
