First of all I am so grateful and blessed to have been selected as a nominee for this amazing magazine! No type of joy can explain how long i’ve been waiting for this moment. Starting to model has been one of the best things thats brought me happiness. I am determined to keep on pushing and keep working on myself to get myself out there!! Being independent at a young age has allowed me to do many things others can’t or won’t do! Being able to represent myself to others is something I value!! and I’ll continue modeling not for fun but as an opportunity to help me out and aim for the big runway shows!

Tell us about your modeling. What made me want to aim for this opportunity, had all started out as a small idea of me wanting to take photoshoots to feel better about myself. After my first photoshoot, I fell in love with the outcome of the photos and not only did I want to keep doing it, but I wanted to aim to create content of putting myself out in the media. Seeing models of all types of shapes, colors, and sizes made me realize everyone can model, but I wanted to be unique and be my own version.
What do you love most about it? The most exciting part of this, is that I can be myself in front of the camera. I don’t have to pretend like I enjoy it because I already do. I’m able to have fun in front of a camera and feel good about myself.
Why did you choose Destinie Garcia for your photographer? This young lady was the first to push me to create content of myself! And as young as she is I can say she is a very independent and hard-working person! Destinie always makes photoshoots so fun with her and she is so kind and her personality is uplifting!!

What inspiring things about you does your nomination not cover? I am very independent and ambitious! I love the thrill of learning to do new things and having new skills. Modeling allows that for me to do and express a variety of different clothing styles!
If you were to present a topic to a group of your peers, what would it be and why? I am very passionate about being ambitious and a strong worker. I could talk about for hours on why putting yourself first will never fail you! Putting the work in to get the results takes work and sweat but the results are worth it!
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? As a teenager, in 5 years I’m going to be in my twenties, which is shocking and exciting. I can picture myself doing runway shows as my career and continue pursuing it. Fashion is something that will always be on my mind and creating new looks and achieving new opportunities is my main goal. I want to be able to model and continue to learn new things everyday physically and mentally!
Look for Edith in issue 58 of Inspiring Teens Magazine!
