Rachel Yee Exclusive Interview

Where are you from, and how would you describe your life growing up? 

I’m from Louisiana. I would say things were good growing up, we lived in the country and had a lot of animals all my childhood! My dad would take my horseback riding & that was always one of my favorite things to do as a kid.

How did you find your way in front of a camera, modeling?

I always wanted the opportunity to model but it didn’t come up until after my wedding. My makeup artist reached out & asked me to model for a local fashion article he was writing. We went to a few local boutiques & I got to model the outfits he wanted to publish in his fashion column. We did that a few months & then we did a few scary Halloween shoots for social media! That was when I knew this was something I could do if I just got out there and really tried to get my modeling career going. I have done 2 fashion shows & have 2 more coming up soon that I’ll Be modeling in! I can’t be more thankful for my journey so far & look forward to why the future has in store!

What do you like best about being a model? 

I love the creativity behind it. The idea that is brought to life through a photo! There are no words needed if done properly & that is definitely something I love to see from my own modeling photos. I enjoy the glam & confidence I’ve gained from being on stage or in a magazine. There’s always something new to look forward to & work towards!! Staying consistent is key also!

Besides modeling what is the most important thing in your life?  Do you have any unusual talents?

We all need support in life.  Where do you get your support?  What or who inspires you?

My husband, daughter, my mom & dad, my older sister and all of my friends ! They all push me to keep going & continue to work towards my modeling goals & career. I love to get inspiration from other models or artists who aren’t afraid of being themselves, being unique and different are characteristics I admire.

What do you think is the most challenging thing about modeling and what advice would you give to new models?

I would say to do what you feel comfortable with, you should never do something that your not comfortable with. Always stay true to yourself! Don’t be like everyone else, stand out! Don’t be too hard on yourself, we all make mistakes & have room for improvement. Most of all, have fun !!
