Fresh Face: Rickkyra Pierce

Hi guys! 

Thanks again for reading! Today, I am coming at you guys with a different kind of Fresh Faces post. I had an inquiry from a lovely young woman who is apsiring to excel in the fashion industry and she prefers to tell her own story through her own words. Which is a great idea! She is looking for anyone who is connected in the fashion and beauty industry to offer her new opportunities so that she may get her foot in the door! She is open to both paid jobs and internships! Here's her letter:

" Dear Calynn M Lawrence,

I would love you to feature me on your blog for The Fresh Faces Project. I want to gain exposure and am seeking opportunities in fashion. I want you to relay my message to the public.

 'Wow look at what she's wearing! That piece of art is something we thought was impossible.' That's what I like people to think of me and my designs. I'm Rickkyra, and I am told that I am very unique and creative, like my name. I'm the girl so fierce that I made a newspaper dress, newspaper pumps, and a clutch. Fashion is only a small portion of the multitude of talents and hobbies that I have. I crochet, sing, write songs, act, dance, and am looking to enter the world of commercial modeling! 
     My love for art is the basis for everything I do. I'm a hard worker, and will go days with no sleep to accomplish my goals. So where do you come in you ask? Well I need your guidance and mentoring. I'm 19, yet a very mature young lady that would love to be a model. I have conquered many obstacles in my life and I'm not afraid of this journey! Putting others ahead of myself and going out my way is what I've done most of my life. In this moment, I am taking my life back and spreading my wings! Please help to fly by opening up ant opportunities that you may have."

Thank you so much Rickkyra for writing The Fresh Faces Project and allowing me the priviledge of sending out your message on my platform! Please go check out her links below and support! You may also recognize her as she was the guest blogger for Mark Schwartz ;)

Living My Best Life Tour: Studying At Harvard, Winning Awards and Walking The Runway!

  Hello all! Thank you so much for returning to my blog and reading this post. I have so much to tell you all because the last few months have been CRAZY! I'm not even sure where to start. I guess I'll begin with the awards that I have been so blessed to receive within the last two weeks. I have NEVER in my entire career of almost a decade managed to take home five awards in such a small time frame! I received two Virtual Visionary awards for Entrepreneurship & Community Service, two awards given by the Sara Williams Scholarship Fund with proceeds benefitting research at St. Jude Children's Hospital, and a Service Leadership award from the pageant system that I represent as their current Miss World, the Miss & Mrs. America Nation Organization ! It was so much fun to have the honor of strutting the runway at their Nationals Fashion Show a couple of weeks ago alongside my amazing sister queens! Prior to this, I hadn't modeled in a fashion show since I was a Fashio

38 Underrepresented World Wide Talents That You Need to Know!

In a world where so many great entrepreneurs and artists can become famous at the act of one viral video online, it's easy to get lost in the misconception that with social media's "power," anybody who is talented is already known. After all, it isn't as difficult to gain exposure and "get big" as it was 20 years ago before the Internet's Massive Media takeover, right? Partially yes, however, social media also makes the market 10x as saturated as it was 20 years ago. Thus, are you really that much further ahead if all of your competition has the means to one-up you, free of cost and inconvenience, just by posting to their online accounts? It's a lot to think about. That is why we here at The Fresh Faces Project work hard to make sure that the artists and entrepreneurs and do-gooders who are underrepresented and don't get the fame and acknowledgment that their talents merit are given a platform. That platform is us. When creating thi

Living My Best Life Tour: Chicago Fashion Week 2021 + BTW, I Have A New Pageant Title

It's been a while! Throughout my relentless grind to meet my goals for 2021, I haven't had the time to blog on my OG website, Fashion Thunderclap. However, I have a few very cool things to share with my beloved readers here that prompted me to MAKE TIME and publish a long-overdue article here. The main thing I want to discuss today is how AMAZING my experience was at Chicago Fashion Week 2021 presented by Fashion Bar ! I was so happy to be invited as a media guest for the 5th year in a row! My love and gratitude goes out to the organization and its Founder, the esteemed Tony Long for always extending the invitation and producing some of the best fashion shows around! As you can see in the photos, I have on a new sash. I was crowned Miss USA Universe Tourism 2021 in January and have pledged to do as I did in my reign as Miss World America Nation and make a difference, big or small, in all seven continents of the world, especially supporting those in line with my platform of
