Meet A’Kiva Wright

A’Kiva Wright

What’s your story?
I began my 1st year of college spring of 2017, and have signed with an agency late January of this year as well. As of now I have been in two high fashion runway shows, and am working on building my portfolio in the hopes of one day modelling abroad. Between working hard in college and attending training classes and shows for my agency, I am excited to do more to branch out and get my name out there!

Why do you want to work as a model or brand ambassador?
As an artist, I love matching different colours and pieces of art (in this case, clothes or makeup!) in ways appealing to myself and others! And it would be more than fun to share it with my followers and anyone else as well.

What are your other career goals and passion?
I am currently deciding between a career in Neuropsychology, or a career in Business. However, if modelling becomes more successful for me, I may consider modelling as a career. I would still get my degree in something relevant in the job market, but modelling would be my main job were that to happen.

Tell us about your lifestyle? How do you maintain your looks and physique?
During high school, I ran several events in track, and learned discipline through national level, summer marching band. Winning nationals as a school was my proudest moment, as I had worked hard to learn a brand new instrument and the show steps as well. As for right now, I have a very fast metabolism, and the most I do to keep fit is do some physical therapy exercises, and go on long walks with my family.

What are your hobbies? What fills your days? What do you do for fun?
More than anything in life I love to sketch and paint, as it is a passion of mine! I also love to read books on neuroscience and psychology, I find it all very fascinating. My simpler hobbies include trying out different recipes for my family, who all have major food allergies. As well as do some amateur photography, just because some moments deserve to be in solid memory as long as possible.

What are your favorite brands? What brands do you want to work with? What kind of campaign do you want to be a part of?
Nike has always been my favourite athletic brand, and would love to work with them! Other brands I do love is Tommy Hilfiger, FashionNova, Charlotte Russe, Forever 21, Billabong, Victoria’s Secret, Pink, and New Look. When it comes to makeup, I currently use items from Estée Lauder, Colourpop, MAC, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Too Faced, Maybelline, and L’Oréal. However, I am more than willing to work with any brand that offers stylish clothing and accessories! My enthusiasm is easily transferrable!

How much time do you spend online?
All day if I could! I would say at least 6+ hours, depending on the day. If I am not researching different interests of mine, I’m on Instagram or Snapchat, or playing video games on my laptop.

What part of this career interests you the most?
The idea of being able to model for brands I already love is awesome! As well as perhaps discovering new, cool brands that I can shop from and share with my friends!

What’s your personal motivation?
Learning to love myself and promoting self love and confidence in others, as well as the drive to do their best, is what I love to do. Knowing that I do have a good life only makes me want to help as many people as I can have as good as a life as they can, whether it be through minor advice or otherwise.

Modeling experience?
I signed with Bellah Modelling Agency in late January. From that time til now, I have walked in two glamour fashion shows. Between the two of those, I have modelled for five designers, and have done one photoshoot for headshots. I am always excited to attend the events, and will be even more excited as I get casted for paying gigs.

Do you have existing partnerships with brands?
As of this moment, I do not have any existing partnerships with brands. However, I hope to gain some!
