Meet William (Tre’) Beverly

Today we’d like to introduce you to William (Tre’) Beverly.

William (Tre’), let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I’ve come a long way. I played football and basketball my entire life, but never thought I’d be a model. Graduating high school, I only had six mid-level basketball offers and two football offers. I was only able to play football my senior year of high school; however, basketball is still the love of my life til this day. In my younger years, I played basketball and gymnastics, I did gymnastics for about four years from the ages 9 to 13 which helped me stay good on my feet. Through these experiences I saw how much more well rounded I was on the football field due to sports I played prior. Therefore, after seeing how well I was in football, I decided it would be best for me to go to prep school in Atlanta to get more scholarship offers prior to choosing a college. That I did, I received about 15 new offers before the start of football season for prep school, and I also played in a few tournaments at school with the basketball team picking up four more offers in the process. Everything was going as planned until one day I got caught up with the wrong people at the wrong time on my team. This caused me to get into some trouble leading me to lose a lot of offers and interests except for West Virginia University. My recruiter wanted me to do another prep year in West Virginia for him to keep good eyes on me and help raise my GPA in order to remain eligible.

Prep school was the most terrible experience of my life and I would not wish it on anyone, I sadly declined Coach G and came back home to Baltimore, MD to play football at Morgan State under Coach Lee Hull with the help of one of my great mentors/big brother Coach Troy Jones. Jones prepared me year after year for football season, but after my 3rd season I was falling out of love with football slowly but surely & started to build a passion for fashion. I believe that you can say a million words just by the way you are dressed before you even open your mouth. I modeled for one of my friend’s clothing lines Deziner Official and I saw how great the shoot came out. I told myself I could elevate and CHANGE the whole game of modeling like DaBaby did with hip-hop and how Steph Curry did with the game of basketball. I began to get solo shoots, shoots with brands, and multiple different style shoots just to help build my portfolio. With these new experiences I saw that freelance modeling could help me get the exposure necessary. Therefore, my main goal now is just to get out endless content and reach the masses!
I have recently became an affiliate of the Curls brand by Mahisha Dellinger, in contact with Neutrogena and Aveeno about partnerships, and in contact with Ronak Jalali for affiliations with all Dastmalchi brands. I have put together a modeling team thus far consisting of three male models including myself, three female models, two hairstylists, one MUA, two videographers/ photographers, and one photographer who are all HUNGRY in 2020 for success and exposure. I want to be different in the game of modeling, I want to be remembered!

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Definitely has not been a smooth road thus far, it is very hard to try to begin a new career when nobody knows what you do or what your goals are but you know hustlers NEVER stop leveling up. My goal has been to push out endless content through social media to get my name and brand out there. I want everyone to know who Tre’ Beverly “THE WELL-ROUNDED MODEL” is. Struggles consist of agencies thinking since you’re new to the game they can get you to pay endless out of pocket money for training/castings but honestly if someone wants to make a career out of something they have to do their research. Which is exactly what I did & I believe until I am established and have a very strong portfolio that freelance modeling is the best option for me. There has not been any agency yet that has showed that they have my best interest at heart.

We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
I am Tre’ Beverly, I am a model, fitness coach, and positive body enthusiast. I specialize in print but definitely open to runway. Looking to open up my acting career also with a couple of upcoming endeavors. I am also known to help people reach those positive body goals that they yearn for. I am mostly proud of myself because nobody would have ever thought I’d be a model and I am really making a name for myself through branding and networking for myself like a real boss! I love the struggles of coming up on this journey alone and building a team to take over after seeing how cutthroat the industry can really be. Of course, invest in yourself but never just throw your money away. What sets me apart from others is that I love to have the help of others so we can help one another achieve greatness. However, if it really comes down to it if I had to do this alone without any help, I’m pretty confident in myself. When I started, I was making all of my own content and was getting pictures taken by my friends and roommates on an iPhone camera while also recording and editing my own video content. I love my progress and I see it more and more everyday, overall loving the process.

What is “success” or “successful” for you?
I define success as completion at this point. By that, I mean as long as I get my content out in timely manner is all that matters to me during this time being as I’m still trying to make a name for myself and thrive in the industry. I am a little of a perfectionist so I know my content will always be clean and professional. Success to me is just putting it out and watching the people fall in love with it. I am just looking for daily progression, great content, and building a great strong team to change and take over the game of modeling!
