â€œThanks to my artist father, I've always been pretty artistic and creative,â€? Shanesse says. â€œThanks to my mom I am a very social and confident person who can get along anywhere in any crowd.â€?
MODEL OF THE DAY
Where Sheâ€™s From: Beautiful young model Shanesse Deleon Adams, was born October 17, 1987 in the city of Pomona in California.
â€œIt was in the wee hours of a Wednesday morning,â€? she tells The Black Star News. â€œThanks to my artist father, I've always been pretty artistic and creativeâ€”which brought me designs for clothing, witty inventions, and an over thought out brain,â€? she says. â€œMost of all I have always been into beautiful thingsâ€”whether it's God, fashion, people, the earth or just my friends and music. Thanks to my mom I am a very social and confident person who can get along anywhere in any crowd.â€?
â€œI attended public school up until the 7th grade and from there I went back and forth between independent study and public school until I graduated high school ahead of my class in 2004,â€? she adds. She's proud to have been educated mostly indepedently.
â€œI participated in a lot of sports in school. I was aÂ tomboy. I liked basket ball, baseball, volleyball, soccer, track, and handball,â€? she adds. â€œDon't get me wrong, IÂ loved each and everyone of Barbies. Outside of school sports I enjoy billiards or pool, and poker, riflery, martial arts, cooking, tennis and some old skool video games.â€?
Where Sheâ€™s At:Â â€œPeople tend to think of me as a free spirit but IÂ think of it more as I love being me and that is whoever I want to be. I've had a lot of extra time on my hands growing up as a child due to my choice to be in Independent Study and since I have always been a natural loner, I was always left thinking about things, creating things and figuring stuff out on my own,â€? she continues.
â€œI am a fashion freak,â€? Shanesse says. â€œI am so into shoes, accessories, clothing and styleâ€”it's a wonder why I never had the nerve to show up to school in four-inch heels, menâ€™s suspenders and trousers, a feather boah and crimson lips. I mean I have so much fun with fashion my ideas for it are just endless.â€?
â€œI adore models and their job of modeling so much. It's like art as well. Apart from modeling I love acting and dancing as a way to open myself up,â€? Shanesse says. â€œI also consider myself a hair expert extraordinaire. I even taught myselfÂ how to braid at the tender age of five years old.â€?
Shanesseâ€™s Favorite Books: â€œThe Holy Bibleâ€”New King Jamesâ€™ Version and Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs.â€?
Shanesseâ€™s Favorite Movies: â€œCarlito's way, Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas, and What Dreams May Come.â€?
