Lol, I was so nervous I actually went to a model call because of a mutual friend was having one and I had to built up the courage to go at first I was like, I’m not as beautiful as the women I’ve met and seen.

Jchell: Knowing what you know, what advice would you give to other models trying to establish themselves?
Davita: Knowing what I know now try not to listen to what people have to say about other people's hustle as far as how people run their shows, or what designer has their favorite. What I have learned was take their advice (if you want) and find out yourself because what they don’t like you might like. Everyone's spiritual connections are different, you will vibe with different people who has different personalities. Ask questions from different people about the model industry to find your answers. Also know your worth as far as what you want out of this don’t let anyone use you.
Jchell: Is there anything else you would like to add?
Davita: Don’t do every fashion show you would get burnt out really quick unless you want to do shows.
