“I love the entertainment industry! It’s my first true love. When you turn on a camera you better watch out because “Nef’s” coming though. With all honesty I started out really shy in my early years. I always wanted to become a model I remember when I turned 14 years old I wanted to be a model. I had a love for the art and enjoyed looking at fashion magazines in the library of bookstores with my childhood best friend. We would sit on the floor and look at magazines for hours. We didn’t have the money to purchase any magazines but the time we spent looking at those glamorous glossy pages of Fashion Icons such as Versace, Prada & Escada helped me create my dreams. What I didn’t know was that I was creating the next phase of my life; which lead me into the world of entertainment.
Through my journey of desiring to have a modeling career, I was turned down by the top 3 agencies in San Francisco; I was living in Oakland, CA at the time. I could have given up but I kept on striving because I knew I had something dynamic to offer the world. My yearning to become a model wouldn’t let me stop believing; when I turned 18 years old I submitted myself to CESD Modeling Agency in Los Angeles, CA and I have been with them for 12 years now all because I didn’t let what “They Said” stop me from going after my dreams.“
