To hear Ravyn Le'AN tell her journey into fashion, and modeling was part happenstance, part manifest destiny.

(Q) Tell us about yourself: Why do you want to work as a model? Why are you interested in this Career? What led you to apply for this job?

(A) I've ALWAYS wanted to be a model. I thought I was going to get taller than what I was because I was pretty tall as a kid. 10th grade I stopped growing. So I was kind of not sure if I could be a model but I'm 5'7 so I figured I go for it! I use to watch America's Next Top Model all the time when I was younger with my mom. When I become a model in 2014 I was learning to love myself. I just had lost my job working at Bebe so I felt like I was losing myself. Modeling motivates me to be STRONG & it gave me a confidence I never knew I had.

(Q) How has modeling changed other aspects of your life?

 (A) Modeling has changed my aspect on life because I found out people aren't really going to be happy for you when your winning! People want you to do good but never better than them. I've lost a lot of friends on my way & I won't be surprised if I lose more. Modeling has really made me a strong woman. I would had never been able to make it through all the things I've been through before modeling. I want to grow & be better every single day than the person I was the day before. I will never give up no matter what.

(Q) Do you do your own hair and make-up?

(A) I know how to do my own hair. I don't know how to do my own make up but I plan on learning soon! I'm always so busy & on the go I haven't had the chance to learn but I plan on making time soon & buying all the products & watching tutorials on YouTube.

(Q) What’s your favorite outfit from your own closet? Do you have your own personal uniform?

(A)  my favorite piece from my closest is my Cape Blazer from BCBG. I can pair this blazer with just about everything I own.

(Q) Describe the atmosphere when you’re on a shoot. Do you play music? Do you talk with the photographer between shots?

(A) I usually start off shy but as I get to know them & get comfortable my true free spirited side comes out. Throw on Beyonce & I'm good to go!

(Q)  What are you likes and dislikes?

(A) I love how Detroit is on the rise. A lot of young people are following their dreams & I think that's so dope! I do not like how a lot of people think they can get over on an artist, model or anyone & not pay them for their talents. Nothing is free.

(Q) What is your availability? Traveling? Full-time, part time? hours?

(A) I work 30 hours + a week. I work at chase bank & BCBG & I still find time to model. My ultimate goal is to just be a model/ actress. Having my own businesses.

(Q) What makes [your city] a good shopping city? How could [your city’s] shopping be improved?

(A) we have a lot of great shopping places here! 12 oaks mall, Somerset Collection , Great Lakes!  We need more outlets here with better selections like Gucci , Chanel , Louis Vuitton that'll be amazing!
