Meet Alanah.

This 18-year-old college student, model, and museum host was born and raised in Los Angeles.

 

What was your favorite part of participating in our Mix Modal campaign?

“My favorite part was seeing all the other models and how diverse they were, knowing that young people would see it and find someone that represented them and looked like them.”

 

Aside from modeling, what are your other current occupations?

“Aside from modeling I work at a museum as a host and occasionally give tours when guests let me talk their ear off. I am in school a lot too as a history major (with plans of becoming a high school history teacher).” 

Can you walk us through a typical day in your life?

“Man, my days have been so boring lately, but whenever I’m not at work or school I try really hard to do something that I enjoy for my own mental health to make up for my busy week. This would probably involve picking out a cool outfit, cheating on my diet, facetiming my best friend to see if we can do something, changing my outfit 5 more times, catching the train to her house (I really need to work on getting a license), sleeping for like 2  hours in her bed, waking up around 3 then deciding to go to an art show or flea market/ thrift store(or whatever else is going on)… maybe even sleep some more.”

 

How would you describe your own personal style?

“Ay dios mio, i don’t even know. Whenever I get ready I think about where I’m about to go then think about how the bad ass sexy spy in a movie would dress for that occasion. (usually involving black spy-like heel boots). I’m 5’9 and I really like wearing heels to appear even taller, like an avatar or something.”

Who are your personal heroes and why?

“The whole “role model” or “hero” thing never sat well with me ughh I dont think I have one, but some people I think are amazing are: President Barack Obama, My 11th and 12th grade history teacher Ms. Haggerman, and my dad.”

 

What are your 3 favorite AA items?

“The Ribbed Sofia Bodysuit, the Nylon Tricot One Shoulder One-Piece, and the Loop Terry Running Shorts.”
