Where were you born, and how was life growing up? I was born on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio. I have very fond memories of my childhood. I was blessed with a two-parent home and a loving older brother. I received a private school education and was very active in sports, including basketball and volleyball, and my favorite was cheerleading!
Where do you call home? I currently call Pittsburgh home, but soon my goals will take me to Atlanta, GA or Miami, FL!
What would the average person say about you? They would say I’m very animated, confident and nurturing. I think I’m an exact replica of my mother, strong and loving.
Are you a good dancer? I’m a great dancer, and not just in the club. I used to have a pole in my home for the exceptional workout it provided, it really helped me tone up, but I was NEVER a “dancer”. I’m also trained in belly dancing.
Do you like the nerdy type, UFC fighter guy or the regular joe? I don’t think I have a certain type. All you have to do is be strong, determined and keep me content. I don’t think I’m hard to please.
Do you have any secret weaknesses or guilty pleasures? I…..LOVE…..CALL OF DUTY!!!
Describe your most embarrassing moment. I was at cosmic bowling in high school, dancing in the lane with my friends. Apparently my pants were too tight because when I went to drop it low, my pants ripped ALL the way up my backside! Yikes!
What has been your most memorable experience as a model? My most memorable moment as a model would have to be my first fashion show! It was such an exhilarating feeling to finally be on the runway, all 5 feet 4 inches of me, strutting my stuff!
What’s your biggest turn on? Hmmm…a nice smile, pearly whites can break me down, haha!
What’s one thing about yourself that everyone should know? If you can’t tell, I’m extremely confident! It’s gotten me through a lot of tough situations in my lifetime.
What do guys compliment you most on? It’s either my smile or my shape.
Do you consider yourself more of a “giver” or a “taker”? I’m definitely a very giving person.
Do you have any hidden talents? Pole dancing, belly dancing, my skills in the kitchen and my double jointed pointer finger! (:
What do you like best about being a model? The liberating feeling you get during a shoot. To me modeling is like acting; sometimes you put on your costume and portray a character, except you have to tell your whole story in one shot. It’s challenging and rewarding when done properly!
What would you consider your strongest attribute? My personal strength and confidence.
If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go and who would you take with you? I would go to Fiji with my Mother! She is my best friend and I love to spend as much time as I can with her while we still have the time to spend.
We know you’re a model and all, but you must have a favorite food. What is it? GREAT question! I love all food, although I no longer eat beef or pork…I would have to say, a nice, greasy, chili cheese dog! Mmmmm…so satisfying!
Besides modeling, what do you do for fun? I spend most of my time freelancing with my graphic design and web production. I appreciate an occasional night out with the girls or a good book and a glass of wine!
What are your dreams and goals? Within a year time I will be running a successful partnership in web design out of my home. As far as modeling, I plan to conquer the ti state area within 6 months, traveling for photo shoots and fashion shows. I would eventually like to become a model manager.
Would you prefer a guy to pursue you, or do you like to be the aggressor? I have no problem either way. Its always a compliment and flattering to be approached, but it’s a new day! If I see something I like, I go get it!
How did you get your start in modeling? I initially started modeling to reach a greater audience with my web design, but I fell in love with the industry!
Myspace or Facebook? Facebook all the way, I haven’t been on myspace in 3 years or so…Is it still working?!
What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done? I don’t think I can answer this one lol....
Do you have a website? Yes, www.ashleysteele.com. It currently is my web design portfolio but I will be turning it into a model and design portfolio with a blog.
Relationship Status: Let’s just say I’m content!
Favorite Sports Team: The Cavs? That should be a Clevelander’s answer correct? :)
Favorite Comedian: Arnez J or Katt Williams
First Job: Selling vacuums in Sears...
Piercings/Tattoos: Two tattoos on my back, ears and navel pierced and I used to have a nose ring…Might have to get that back!
What fun fact or talent should guys know about? I’m a GREAT cook. I’ve been in the kitchen with my mom since I was 3 or 4 years old, learning how to make things from scratch, especially good southern cuisine. My mother is a Mississippi girl!
