Shinice Kelly is a model from South Carolina who has a passion for worship and being spiritual. She believes in focusing on God, meditation and the power of positivity. She says “Whenever you say the word ‘I‘, be careful of what you say behind it!” For example, if you say “I am going to fail,” you might fail because you said it. Instead, you should say “I am going to succeed!” and you will find yourself reaching for success.
Shinice loves to hang out in bowling alleys and in movie theaters. She enjoys roller skating and eating pizza, her favorite food. If she could be a fruit or vegetable, she would be a tangerine.
Shinice says, “no matter what it looks like, no matter how you feel about yourself, continue to pursue the very thing your heart desires.”
Shinice walked down the runway in New York Fashion Week’s Couture Fashion Week for the 2017 Spring Collection. Shinice has also modeled for the Miami International Fashion Week in May 2016.
