We are thrilled to have our fashion/commercial star on the rise, Leneve Mellow, as our June Model of the Month. From juggling her studies with digital journalism– to dancing–to modeling for clients like Instagram and Clinique, Leneve does it all and it’s no question why we’re so proud of her!
1. Where you are from?
I am originally from the Bronx but my family is from West Africa and Dominica.
2. What you are into… studies, hobbies, special skills etc..?
I am into journalism… meaning writing articles and learning about the media politically, socially, etc. I’ve been a dancer for 10 whole years and l’m good making water droplet sounds with my mouth and can put my foot behind my head too. I can also play a little bit of the violin!
3. Favorite clients from the biz?
My favorite client was doing my first job for Xerox. My lips were the star of the campaign which was pretty cool. I loved it because I met new people in the process and built amazing connections!
4. Dreams/goals any thing else of interest (any other dream clients?)?
My dream is to hopefully become a bigger person in the modeling industry and would be the happiest girl on earth if I ever had the opportunity to walk for Victoria’s Secret, Versace, Louis Vuitton, or Prada! I would also love to focus my studies on journalism, and possibly also open a dance school in my country in Africa one day.
5. Career highlights?
My career highlights would probably be getting to know new people with every casting and job I do, including being able to show my personality and the fun side to me.
6. How did you get into modeling ?
I got into modeling when I was very young, doing shoots with my mom who modeled at a young age as well, also knowing my dad was a model too, so I guess I got that sense of looking up to two beautiful models. This is my first time doing modeling for myself and being part of my first agency!
