Raven is a go-getter and a risk taker. She doesn’t like taking no for an answer. She is inspired by dominating and empowering women. Her favorite Disney princess is Moana, a powerful woman who went out on her own to accomplish her voyage.

If she could be a fruit or vegetable she would be a peach because it is juicy, sweet and beautiful on the inside-out, just like her.

She hopes to one day walk for designer Philipp Plein. Jessica’s top role models are Hillary Duff, Tyra Banks and Ava Capra from America’s Next Top Model. If she could be a fruit or vegetable, she would be a pineapple because it is tasty, juicy, tarty, and interesting looking with a hardcore in the middle.

“Nothing stops me.”

Jessica doesn’t let fear stop her from achieving her goals. Back in January 2017, she was in the airport waiting for her flight to New York when the Fort Lauderdale shooting happened. Instead of panicking and going home, she boarded her flight so that she would be able to compete in the 2017 PLITZS Fashion Marketing’s Emerging Model of the Year. Even with all the stress of the traumatic shooting, her determination pulled her though allowing her to win the petite model of the year.

Meet Shyla:

Shyla Brianne Chism is a creative and unique fashionista from Arkansas who wants to get as much into her life as she can. You can find her broadcasting on Live.me or painting with oils and acrylics. If she could be a fruit or vegetable she would be a pineapple because of its unique characteristics – rough on the outside, sweet on the inside and wears a crown on top. #queen

When she’s not modeling, Shyla does the makeup for different fashion events. She’s traveled from her hometown to do makeup jobs in Texas and even traveled to New York to do for makeup for New York Fashion Week. While she does all sorts of makeup, her favorite is special effects makeup. Her craziest makeup experience was when she made it look like a dart was stuck in somebody’s arm – with blood and all.

Black leather is her go to outfit. Her style is edgy, grungy and chic. You can find her wearing a black leather jumpsuit one day and a poodle skirt the next. She’s obsessed with chocolate, tattoos, shoes and most importantly unicorns. Her superhero is Harley Quinn. If she could walk down the runway with any celebrity, it would be Little Wayne, one of her favorite artists.

Shyla modeled on the cover of Glitz Magazine. She has also modeled for pinup shoots at John Gladman’s Photographer’s Convention.
