Singer Songwriter & Model Portia Kay
Hi thank you so much for featuring me. Well where can I start; I was born in Zimbabwe. I’m 18 years old originally from Toronto, Canada. Right now I’m living in Calgary Canada currently starting my first year in University studying Psychology. I sing, and song write, and have been doing that since I was a youngin. I also love modeling and taking dope pictures. Being so active on my social media, I love showing confidence and self-love.
What is your proudest achievement so far?
Being so young, I have yet to accomplish my dreams and goals. Being so influenced by fashion, music and media, I want to one day have my own clothing line, model and promote for big brands and release at least an EP. But currently, the biggest and proudest accomplishment I’ve done so far is getting into school and getting my education.
Which is the best compliment you have received?
While working at Walmart, I’ve had a couple customers approach me and tell me “I’m too beautiful to work here”. Haha.
How is a typical day like for you?
A typical day for me will be me attending class. If I’m not in class or at work, I’m listening to beats all day and writing music. I can spend a whole day doing music and trying to make a single beat turn into a dope song! Either that or I’m planning and contacting local photographers to book photoshoots. Also throughout my day, I’m obsessed with watching Netflix. I’m actually currently binge-watching “ How I Met Your Mother”, Dynasty”, “Lee Daniels’ Star” and “Bob’s Burger”.
Do you have any guilty indulgences for food?
I’m the world’s pickiest eater. I tend to eat what I know and that would be anything Italian like lasagna – girl if I had a choice, I would eat lasagna for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! I’m also obsessed with Nigerian Jollof rice if it’s made right.
Would you rather be able to control time or control objects?
I would much rather be able to control time because my time management skills are terrible haha. I always feel like there is never enough hours in the day and I try so hard to do multiple things throughout the day and never have time to finish it. So having the power to control time would be dope.
If you could meet anyone past or present, who will it be?
I would love to meet Kanye West. I look up to that man so much. He isn’t just a rapper but he has multiple businesses and so many other things going on like fashion design, music producing and much more and I look up to that! He’s also just got so much confidence that I aspire to be; people call it cockiness but I f*ck with it. His level of confidence is something that I aspire to be. If I were to meet Kanye, I would want him to be my mentor. I f*ck with his vision.
What is an ideal first date for you?
An ideal first for me will be something fun. I like men who are creative. For a first date, I would love to do something fun where I can really capture the man’s personality, and also showcase mine. A regular dinner will be ok too but I much rather do something fun and out of the box! Let’s take a salsa dancing class! Let’s go on a picnic!
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions, Portia. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Someone who isn’t just good looking but also smart and confident in themselves for who they are will get my attention any day! Being aware that you aren’t perfect but you still love yourself and comfortable with the skin and person you are is amazing to me! And to me, I think anyone can be “hot” and “pretty” but not everyone is smart.
That’s what makes someone “sexy” to me, that self-confidence and intelligence. Thank you so much SimplySxy for featuring me! I had a lot of fun.
