These women are what we call "Community Models" aka "Role Models"
Several days ago I was on the People Empowerment Program Instagram (@PEPProgram) and came across a dope page that is strictly for women on the grind. After close examination, I decided to reach out to them and they were sweet enough to respond back instantly! Now as you know, it can be pretty hard at times to get a response back from people on social media, so I was rather impressed.
The owners of this awesome new movement are God, Jaree Brown, and Jalisa Ray out of Maryland. These Queens are making moves and they are also helping other Goddesses make bigger moves by giving them more exposure! If you're a female entrepreneur or business woman and want to be their "Get It Girl" of the week then contact these women today!!
Best wishes and much success on your future endeavors Queens!

Weight: 130 lbs
Measurements: 30- 26- 30
L.A.Q: Well now that we finally got a chance to catch up with the beautiful melanated model "Queen Desire" we have a few questions to ask you for our viewers and your fans.
Empress Desire: Thank you for the compliment, I'm busy a woman. It's great to finally meet you!
L.A.Q: So Miss. Desire how long have you been in the modeling industry?
Empress Desire: I've been modeling since February 2015.
L.A.Q: Did you always want to model and if so for how long?
Empress Desire: Yes, I've always wanted to become a model, since I was 14 years old. As I was growing up people have always asked me if I model or consider me as a model. My response would be maybe oneday, when I come across the opportunity and meet the right people than I won't turn down that opportunity.
L.A.Q: Well it's great to see that you are now pursuing your dreams! Being a woman of such rich melanin do you find it harder to get modeling jobs?
Empress Desire: To be honest; yes, it's hard since I'm just getting into the industry. I know that it takes time, patience and dedication. Nothing comes to a sleeper but a dream. God's timing is perfect timing.. We all know that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. Got to keep your faith!!
L.A.Q: My advice to you is to keep following your dreams and don't let anyone destroy your ambition. Only you can make your dreams come true so don't ever give up.
Empress Desire: Thank you for the advice Queen, I needed that!
L.A.Q: Do you have any advice to the aspiring models out there that might end up reading this interview?
Empress Desire: I will tell them the truth and won't sugar coat anything about this industry. I will give my perspective on what modeling is about and how young models can progress in her career. My advice is if you are new to the industry, you should never turn down the opportunity to work with top designers, even if you are not being paid. An editor may see you walk in a show and decide to use you for an editorial spread. A model has to be prepared for opportunities, and that requires doing more than looking up a few things on the internet and posing in front of the mirror.
L.A.Q: Great advice and I hope it helps other aspiring models! So, what is your one year goal and how do you intend on achieving it?
Empress Desire: My one year goal is to be signed to a top notch modeling agency. I intend to achieve my goals by: work, work, work and more work on becoming better than I was the day before.
L.A.Q: Much success on that and all of your future endeavors! You never know who is looking into signing you Now to get a little personal for your fans, future fans, and our supporters; what is your zodiac sign?
Empress Desire: I am an Aries... Natural born leaders and pioneers...
L.A.Q: Wooooh I know all about them fire signs girl! Given that I am a fire sign too, us fire signs don't play and we are the bomb.com (laughter)
Empress Desire: Yes, queen you know all about us Fire signs.. Picky from time to time but it's all out of love. (smile)
L.A.Q: What's your favorite food?
Empress Desire: I honestly can say I don't have no favorite food. I just love to eat (laughter)
L.A.Q: (laughter) I heard that and so do I!! What's your favorite dessert?
Empress Desire: Of course chocolate is my favorite dessert. Who doesn't like chocolate? (giggles)
L.A.Q: What do you enjoy doing on your free time?
Empress Desire: During my free time I'm thinking of a master plan, talking with God, becoming a better me, spending time with my family, listening to music, reading and networking (Outside of social media, FB and IG)
L.A.Q: Okay then! That's nice and it's great to network and build your name. Now let's cut straight to the chase! Every man on social media has been googly eyed over your cocoa brown skin and extroverted persona. Do you mind letting the viewers know if you are off the market?
Empress Desire: Currently I am single. I have a few male associates, nothing more than associates (laughter) nothing serious! I find it hard to take a man serious nowadays so I will be single until God places the right man in my life. So for now I'm just living and enjoying my life to the fullest. You only live once!
L.A.Q: Great answer and thanks for letting that known for our following. How can our viewers reach you and where can potential photographers, magazine owners, etc reach you at?
Empress Desire: You can reach me on FB, IG, personal email or Twitter.
L.A.Q: Thank you so much for taking the time to interview with 710 EMG and Like A Queen! We all look forward to seeing more of you in the near future.
