Where She’s From:
Erica Taylor, whose Zodiac sign is Aries, was born and raised in The Sunshine State, Florida. “Growing up, I was taught Christian values and to always fight for what you want,� she tells The Black Star News.

“I attended Seacoast Christian Academy. The following year after graduation, I decided to see where modeling could take me. My career is still fairly new, and in the growing stage. I see myself as an international Model, and successful at anything I pursue as far as modeling.�

“In this business, one of your biggest challenges is Haters. To deal with this, I simply ignore them and go on with my life,� she adds.

Where She’s At:
“I’m proud of the connections I’ve made and the people I’ve met. I’ve built new friendships with individuals I would have never had the chance to know. On the other side of things, it’s a blessing to be signed with a wonderful agency, and to have a hard working management team that keeps me working hard.�

So how does Ericka prepare to step out? “As far as makeup goes, I’m a MAC girl. With clothing, I like to wear a little of everything. I'll have on Baby Phat one day and Dolce and Gabanna the next.�
