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 ;)

About Me

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by! I'm Calynn, 20x Award Winning businesswoman, media personality and former pageant queen (Miss United States Universe Tourism 2021, Miss World America Nation 2020). I started this blog when I was barely 15 years old in January 2011 as a supplement to my application to the retail business internship at the downtown Chicago Nordstrom mall! I stayed there for 3 years learning the fundamentals of everything fashion business from sales and marketing to media and modeling. This was a phenomenal foundation to my career as it gave me the rudimentary knowledge and competitive edge that I needed to be successful!  From there, I went on to college and obtained my first degree in Business and Humanities (the arts and social sciences). I wrote as a freelance journalist and editor for several large publications and hosted live cable television for two years. I walked countless red carpets being a VIP media guest at major industry events all over the country a

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

The Search For "Mr. Right": 2 Years On Every App Taught Me This

  Over the last 2 years, I've been conducting what some could call a "social experiment." I have been single (by choice) for the better part of the last 2.5 years and had an epiphany a little over 2 years ago to give online dating services a shot! While it hasn't been the most miraculous experience, it has certainly been a valuable one! And, I strongly recommend that anyone who is looking to settle down with a life partner, give them a try! Maybe you don't need to sign up for almost every app known to man like I have LOL, but at least try the major ones. This blog is a detailed account of my findings as a young, sweet, successful woman with online dating.  For clarity, I've added the below chart for you to understand who I am and what I have to offer versus what I am seeking. This foundational knowledge is key to comprehending the results of my "experiment." I, as a 26 year old woman who is the CEO of a successful small business (
