(Kischa-Simone has eyes on modeling, acting, and academe)

Where She’s From: Kischa-Simone, relatively new face in the entertainment industry is trying to make her face known to the public. 

With strong interests in both acting and modeling, Simone is becoming a force to be reckoned with. She has walked the runway for fashion shows, most recently the American Express Black Card fashion show, and Live Life Love Denim by Karl Kani.  She has also been in a swimwear ad for Jacqie Swimwear. “I’m just getting started!  I love to be in front of a camera, so I have developed different personalities to make each photo shoot just a little bit more special than the next,� she says.

“I have always wanted to be in the entertainment industry from a very early age.  I think I was a very animated child; I was never bored.  I would constantly perform for my friends and family, and I have even written a few plays while I was in high school. From then, I knew where my passion was.�

Where She’s At: “I am currently taking acting classes in Rancho Cucamonga California, and I am also in my senior year at La Sierra University where I am studying psychology,� the bookish beauty adds. “Ultimately I plan on obtaining my doctorate in child psychology while I perfect my craft in acting and modeling.�

She admits that the lifestyle gets a little hectic with spontaneous auditions and photo shoots while trying to write a 10-page paper on anxiety disorders. “But I love it. I thrive off of this, this is my life, and I wouldn’t change it for anything,� Simone says. “Thank-you Black Star News for this amazing opportunity, hopefully my story will be an inspiration for that one odd looking little girl anywhere who loves to perform for her family.�

Her Words of Wisdom: “Always be prepared— success is when preparation meets opportunity.�

Her Secrets to Success: “Never give up!  In this business, you have to have a think skin.  There will always be someone prettier and smarter than you, but you have to be confident within yourself to succeed.�
