3 Voices: And now you know who to contact and don’t have to think twice lol.When did you start modeling and what actually inspired you to become a model?
Dajanae Lyttle: Every since I could remember the mirror has been my best friend LOL. My father always said I would be a model but what really made me want to pursue a career in modeling was after joining my modeling team Empire Modelz I learned so much from learning how to give people life on the runway to giving a fierce eye to the camera. That led me all the way to the second audition to Surround Sound of Fashion in 2010. I didn’t make the final round but that day made me want to go harder! I had to step my attitude and style up! And I must say IM TAKING OVER THE GAME!
3 Voices: Who are some models that have influenced you?
Dajanae Lyttle: I was motivated by A couple of the models from Empire Modelz just by how they brought their photos to life and how they caught the audience’s attention when they were ripping the runway but honestly I influenced and pushed myself to be who I am today. I practiced on my facial expressions and catwalk and became stronger and stronger. I started off investing in myself to getting paid for my talent SO YES DAJANAE INFLUENCED DAJANAE
