With her unique exotic features in addition to trademark thick luscious locs, model Monifa Miller, is an up and coming Jamaican- American figure on a mission for great changes from industry to global. She is no ordinary model, this true beauty is indeed an inspirational empress.
Born May 6,1987, Monifa Nicole Yemisi Miller was the last born and only girl to her Jamaican parents. Nothing short of a tomboy growing up, she excelled in football (Soccer), track, as well as academics. She is known always as a friendly and loving young lady among her peers as well as a leader. She has an infectious personality, sense of humor, and a positive energy about her that people naturally gravitate towards her. After injury to her leg as a teen, she never imagined she would eventually trade her studs in for heels.
In January of 2011, this 24 year old single mother started her modeling career after much encouragement from friends and family. With her 5’4 petite stature and flowing dark locs, she has left lasting impressions on those who have laid eyes on her. She continues to receive calls from numerous Photographers, Designers and Make-Up Artists, both local and internationally. After being featured on business websites, a commercial, Miss May 2011Kamoy’s Beauty of the month, featured model in HHK Magazine debut issue, and graced the runways in New York City including a show for New York Fashion Week, she continues to remain focused on the genres of Fashion, Editorial, and Hair.
Outside of modeling she has humanitarian dreams and hopes to show that she’s not just another pretty face in the photograph. She wants to bring about not just awareness to global and social issues but solutions and action. Inspired immensely by son, children are her passion and through them she hopes to empower them to help change their own futures. Her message to young men and woman, world-wide, is the importance of self-love and acceptance then being comfortable in the skin you’re in. “It’s okay to be different, and to walk the road others see as strange. Inner beauty is from a clean heart, open mind, and outer comes from the “flaws” God blessed you with”, says Monifa.
In addition her modeling career, traveling, music, the arts, cultural related activities, photography, and sports, Monifa still loves spending time with her family predominantly her son. She loves her Jamaican culture, taking pride and representing it proudly.
Keep your eyes open in 2012 because she’s moving swiftly and ready for the challenges ahead that she knows she will endure. She’s thankful for the support and love from family, friends, and her already vast international following that she refers to as her extended global family.
