NUMA: How did you become a model?
KARLEIGH: I had asked my mom for months to help me get into modelling, and she researched photographers to help get my portfolio started. We came across Numa on the internet, and we reached out to them to secure an interview and schedule a test shoot. Shortly after, I was signed by the agency. I took advantage of as many castings and opportunities that I would be able to participate in. The girl power workshop helped me gain confidence and knowledge about the industry. The Numa retreats have been a huge asset for me. Not only have the retreats helped me build my portfolio, but I’ve made connections, made friendships with other models, and built relationships with photographers. These experiences have provided me with the opportunity to grow, not only professionally but also personally. Numa’s agency directors and fellow models have been incredibly supportive, and encouraging. I couldn’t be more grateful for them.
NUMA: What would be your dream shoot as a model?
KARLIEGH: My dream shoot as a model would be to shoot in Paris, or Milan. Those are both huge international fashion hotspots where I would love to work with designers. I would love to do a shoot similar to classic old hollywood style.
NUMA: Who is your favourite current model?
KARLEIGH: I admire models like Taylor Hill, Josephine Skriver, Kendall Jenner, and many more who are big fashion icons. I love that they are such good role models, and they’re fashion sense and styles are amazing. For being so young, they’ve already made their mark in the fashion industry, and created their own brands that have made them extremely successful in the international market.
NUMA: What are some of your favorite exercises?
KARLEIGH: I am a full time competitive dancer. I dance 4 hours, 4 days a week in all genres. It’s safe to say my favourite exercise is dance!
NUMA: If you weren’t a model, what would you want to do?
KARLEIGH: If I wasn’t a model, I would like to be a clothing designer, an architect, or a professional actress. Ultimately, modelling is my passion, and I will continue chasing my dream.
