I am originally from Los Angeles, CA and I was raised the youngest and the only girl of three in a single mother household. In 2018, I graduated from UC Berkeley where I studied Law and African American Studies. After moving home to Los Angeles in 2019, I began a new profession in the field of education and worked tirelessly in my career as a working fashion model.
My biggest accomplishment has been working hands-on as a teacher with autistic children while pursuing my passion as a model and influencer in the fashion industry. I really enjoy the freedom of expression that fashion allows me and the opportunity to represent indigenous people and minorities around the world.
Do you have any favorite genres of modeling you prefer?
My favorite genres of modeling are usually the ones that challenge my acting skills. I really enjoy high fashion photography because it pushes me to expand a lot more on different characters for photoshoots.
Is there any food or drink you can’t live without?
A food I cannot live without is from Blaze Pizza. I love to build my own pizza with original dough, half pesto sauce, half white cream sauce, shredded mozzarella, parmesan cheese, artichokes, banana peppers, black olives, tomatoes, chopped garlic, fresh basil, green bell peppers, red bell peppers, mushrooms, pineapples, red onions, spinach, olive oil, oregano, salt and a side of cesar salad.
A drink I cannot live without is the pineapple matcha from Starbucks with little ice! It’s so refreshing, if they take it off the menu, I’ll be disappointed.
If you could change one thing about the world, what will it be?
If I could change one thing about the world, it would be for people to view one another as equal and treat each other as such. Of course, everyone is different, but if people were less judgemental and more understanding, the world would be a much better place. I was raised with the saying, “If you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all”.
Have you been in an embarrassing situation before that is funny now when looking back?
An embarrassing situation looking back happened when I was out and about earlier this week, running some errands. And you guys couldn’t believe what happened to me!
I was pulling out from the dog park with my pet maltese. Before turning right, this man was convinced that he knew me and began walking up to my car to say hello. My window was down and as he walked closer to my car I quickly rolled up my window, locked my doors, gave the fakest wave and smile, then I sped off so fast!
I wasn’t trying to be rude but you guys do not understand the awkwardness in my face at that moment. I could not stop laughing on the freeway going home LOL.
Would you rather be able to taste colors or see smells?
If I had to choose between tasting colors or seeing smells, I would rather be able to taste colors because eating and tasting flavors seems enjoyable to me.
What is the funniest or lamest attempt a guy has tried to know you?
The lamest and funniest thing guys do to try to get to know me is following me on Instagram, then unfollow me, then they follow me again to get my attention.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Wynter. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Thank you for having me! To me, sexy is when you are aware of your own self worth. To be sexy is a mindset of being self motivated, courageous and confident in your inner and outer beauty that God gave you.
