Meet Desiree Crayton

Today we’d like to introduce you to Desiree Crayton.

Desiree, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
As a little girl, I’ve always had a passion for modeling and fashion. Between watching America’s Next Top Model and strangers telling me how beautiful I was and I should become a model, it gave me the confidence to finally start.

I officially started modeling in college for photographers I knew and for friends brands. Today I feel more confident in what I do and I’m in the works of being signed to an agency.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It has not been a smooth road and I believe there will always be obstacles I have to face. The main obstacle was and is myself. I had opportunities when I was younger in elementary and middle school to start modeling but I was too shy. Unfortunately, that set me back. I know on the other hand have the confidence I need back then.

I’ve also seconded guessed my beauty. Even though many strangers, friends, and family members are telling me how beautiful I am, it doesn’t mean anything if I don’t feel that way about myself, inside and out. The past few years have been amazing and I love my beauty inside and out no matter what anyone says about me.

Tell us more about your work.
My brand is myself. I am selling my image to people. I am proud of how far I have come as an individual. Not only do I model but I’m also a student at Vanguard University and work part-time. I would say no two people are the same so that right there already differentiates me from others, not only that but my confidence, independence, outlook on the future, and passion for the things I love.

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
I would say; self-reliance, self-confidence, passion, optimism, integrity, and having great communication with others has gotten me here today and will continue me in my journey to success.
