Meet Kendrick Nelson

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kendrick Nelson.

Kendrick, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
My Name is Kendrick Nelson. I started from just simply, doing shoots with my celliur device and taking pictures of others. Yes!!! I wasn’t as dedicated and driven as I am now, but I wasn’t as always photogenic as I am now. I wasn’t as polished as I am now. I always knew I was special when it came to being in someone’s lens, even if it was just on the phone. I always believed that how I see myself in my head, I can bring that into reality. I got to this point in my life, with first knowing what I’m destined for and knowing my place. Everything isn’t for everybody. I had to know what was for me and what wasn’t. With a lot of prayer and meditation, I manifested so much spiritually that my physical being was able to do and be anything I wanted to be and do anything I wanted to do. God has blessed me tremendously and I couldn’t of done any of this without him.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
It hasn’t been a smooth road of course and it still isn’t a smooth road… life is full of Changes and full of Different seasons. There were times when I just wanted to throw my hands up and maintain working on a Clock. It’s nothing wrong with working a normal job but I knew it was something much more to me and attached to me. Yes, there were times when I wanted to give up. Went through stages of Depression and sadness because things just weren’t coming together For me and my life. But I had to tell myself that it’s not gonna always be like this. I HAVE TO GO OUT AND GET IT!!! Crying and sitting around mad at the world because things weren’t coming together or it wasn’t The right time for Life to bloom for me. But I had to Tell Myself and push myself to believe that. I am born to do this, I will do this and it’s going to happen.

We’d love to hear more about your work.
I specialize in modeling of course!! I’m not just standing In front of a camera all day, of course. I’m apart of major companies and I’ve been apart of Huge Corporate Business. Ex: Wells Fargo.

I would say that I’m very proud to still be maintaining stability in the fashion industry… at times my schedule can be all over the place, From fittings, to Fashion shows, etc. You Know!! Fashion stuff!!! But nothing really sets me apart from anybody. I don’t doubt that people who are driven to want to win and remain being Great at winning, In a winning position or season. I feel we all have the same mindset to want to be Winners. I’m usually known for my Artwork. The Body, The Face… my posture, etc. I am Beautiful, Inside and outside.

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
Wheeeeew!!! If I’d had the chance to start over. I would be a very lucky person. I would do things completely differently, not speaking on my craft and public image but I would do things differently from within. I would push myself even harder and focus more on my craft. Not getting so caught up with the many changes of Life. Life throw curve balls and those things will allow you to lose focus on the bigger picture. But I wish I had the drive for success that I have now back then. But you know the Good thing about life is. You have control over your own life. Life gives us second chances… it’s not about how you fall and how hard you fell. It’s about how you get up from it and what do you do and how do you go once your back up again.
