MODEL OF THE DAY
Where Sheâ€™s From: Beautiful Indi Eyez, whose Zodiac sign is Sagittarius, was born on a military base in Fort Sill, Oklahoma. â€œI was jet-set baby for the most part, but I spent the majority of my childhood in Small-town Midwest, aka Newark, Ohio,â€? she tellsÂ The Black Star News. â€œI attended high school and college in Fresno, California.â€?
â€œI began modeling by accident,â€? she continues. â€œIt was a case of being at the right place at the right time. I was at a boutique looking for a dress for the Winter Formal at my high school, and the local news came to do a story on the shop. They asked everyone to leave the store, except for me. They asked me to model some of the dresses for the evening newscast. They ran the piece on the news three times, and by the next afternoon, everyone in town had seen me and the rest is history.â€?
Where Sheâ€™s At: â€œAt this point, I am looking to make a formal transition into acting,â€? Indi Eyez says. â€œI have been extremely studious over the course of the last couple of years, and I am making all the necessary provisions to equip myself to take it to the next level. I am constantly looking to enhance my skills to better my performance in all I do.â€?
â€œThroughout my scholastic career, I have always excelled academically,â€? she continues, reinforcing the importance of brains over looks. â€œI had the privilege of being a member of the National Honor Society. I received an NAACP Youth Image Award in 1998, and the following year I was nationally recognized as an All American Scholar. It is extremely important for me to be recognized intellectually, not solely as an externally beautiful woman. Beauty only takes you so far. It is what you have to offer on the inside that adds to your physical beauty. Also, when you have the brainpower to back up the beauty, people are less likely to get over on you, because you assert yourself as a woman who is educated, informed and serious about her business.â€?
