Breaking Barriers: Mberry Faye
â€œI hope to break down barriers and pave the way for other women of color,â€? she adds. â€œBecause we are beautiful and have what it takesâ€”you just have to work hard and never give up on your dreams.â€?
Where Sheâ€™s From: Twenty-one year old MberryÂ was born in Belgium and raised in
Gambia, West Africa and in London, U.K., where she now lives. â€œI was spotted by a
photographer while I was studying near my college, who took a few photos of me and sent them to a few agencies and, as they say, the rest is history,â€? Mberry recalls.
Indeed. Since that fortunate encounter, sheâ€™s been featured in Dazed and Confused magazine, Tatler, Black Beauty, on a few music videos, and on television. â€œI have also done shows for l`oreal, French connection, Vanessa Galvin, just to name a few,â€? she adds.
Where Sheâ€™s Heading: â€œI would like to move into acting,â€? Mberry tells The Black Star News. â€œPresently, I am also working on setting up a charity. I have so many things that I want to do. I look at modeling as a business which I take very seriously, but I also have a lot of fun with it. You never know what youâ€™re going to be doing next.â€?
Mberry is determined to open opportunities for others in the industry. â€œI hope to break down barriers and pave the way for other women of color,â€? she adds. â€œBecause we are beautiful and have what it takesâ€”you just have to work hard
and never give up on your dreams.â€?
