How long have you been modeling?
[TERYA] I have been modeling for 2 years now.
What about modeling interested you so much that you decided to pursue it as a career path?
[TERYA] It was that I can be able to use my figure and make something look so great and that I can persuade people into wanting something they where never thinking of ever having.
Is there anyone in the industry today that you look up to or would like to model your career aspirations after?
[TERYA] I look up to Rachel Zoe because of her hard work and I would love the opportunity to work with her someday. But I would love to model my career after Tyra Banks only because she gives other young ladies an opportunity to fulfill there dreams and her potential is magnificent.
What would you say are your best physical assets?
[TERYA] I would say it is my face and my body…pretty much everything.
And what are your weakest?
[TERYA] My weakest asset on my body…hmmmm…I don’t think I have one.
How many shoots have you been on to date and what was your most memorable experience you had?
[TERYA] I have been on three shoots. My most memorable experience was my first shoot on the beach. That is when I realized the great potential and triple threat I can be in this industry.
Tell me what makes you different from the other ladies out there trying to get ahead in this industry?
[TERYA] I want to really make a difference. I want to make it so I can give other young ladies an opportunity to do the same. I have always wanted to make a difference in peoples lives and give them the confidence that they can do it too.
Do you have any tattoos or piercing?
[TERYA] Yes, I six tattoos and no piercings. My tattoos are located on my right upper thigh, small tattoo on my left foot, the word “dance” on my front bottom waist line, another on my left rib cage, bottom right corner of my back, and my left shoulder blade. My tattoos signify art of the six things that are very close to me in my life and remind me of what I love most.
Is there anything that you have encountered thus far that made you feel uncomfortable?
[TERYA] No, I have never encountered anything that has made me uncomfortable.
How did your recent shoot with Echo1 Studio.com go?

What other talents do you poses?
[TERYA] I am a Dancer.
If you had your choice, where would you most like to visit and have a photo shoot?
[TERYA] I would most like to visit New York to do a shoot on Broadway. If I could get the chance to combine the two things I love to do most (which is dancing and modeling) that would be an awesome experience!
Do you have any special training methods or eating habits that you use to keep yourself in great shape?
[TERYA] No, I don’t. I just stick to working out at lease twice a week.
What are you looking to accomplish in this field over the next 5 years?
[TERYA] I am looking to accomplish meeting more people in this industry and expanding my horizon by being at another dimension in this field.
How can perspective clients and/or photographers contact you regarding work opportunities?
What would you like to add in closing?
