Mykel: "You have to be able to have at the very least a basic understanding of contracts, pay scales, waivers and releases, and you must be able to differentiate between professionals—photographers, agents, managers, and scam artists.�

MODEL OF THE DAY


Where She’s From:
Mykel Marie Stinson, whose Zodiac sign is Taurus, is a model, actress and dancer—she was born in Denver, Colorado and lived there until 1993.


She moved to Toledo, Ohio after her mother's death, and lived there for six years until she graduated from High School. “My mother taught me to pay no attention to people who talk negatively about me,� she tells The Black Star News. “She said ‘if anything, thank them, they're making you famous.’ I learned to be strong and independent by watching her.�


Mykel attended Jesup W. Scott High School in Toledo, Ohio, and Long Island University at the Brooklyn, New York, campus.


Where She’s At:
“I just began my career in Miami, Florida about six months ago,� she says. “I'm in the beginning stages, still taking classes to become a well- rounded actress and performer. I've always had the desire to act in film and on television and I know my determination and resilience will help me to reach that goal.�


“I just take it step by step,� she adds. “I work a regular job and try to save a little from each pay check to go towards my next photo shoot or to pay for comp cards. In the past I held myself back. I always knew what I wanted but was afraid to try. I had a very low self-esteem mostly due to years of struggling with homelessness.�
 

“Beauty is what captures an audience, and gets you the jobs,� Mykel says. “However if you don't have brains to back it up you won't get far in this business. You have to be able to have at the very least a basic understanding of contracts, pay scales, waivers and releases, and you must be able to differentiate between professionals—photographers, agents, managers, and scam artists.�


So how does Mykel dress to kill? “I don't really get into perfume,� she says. “I use several different Bath &Body Works—body sprays, I use Palmers Cocoa Butter everywhere. I've been using it all my life. I get most of my clothes from the Goodwill and make them into something else. I love shoes, anything funky and different. I love Mosh Pit-Miami Beach that is definitely my favorite store.�
