Jchell: Where are you from?
Sheryl: I am from Miami Florida but currently reside in Baytown Texas.
Jchell: Where did you go to high school/college?
Sheryl: I went to Ross S Sterling High school in Baytown , Texas.
Jchell: What are some of your main interests and hobbies?
Sheryl: I have so many, life is beautiful and everyone should find something they love and do it. Traveling with my husband Justin and son Noah is my number one interest.
Jchell: How long have you been modeling?
Sheryl: I have been modeling for roughly 4 years, I stopped for awhile to pursue my nursing career but I am back at it and I am excited for each opportunity I am presented with.
Jchell: What was it like starting out as a model?
Sheryl: I actually had a friend talk me into "trying out". I didn't think I would even get a call back but I went for it, and here I am now!
Jchell: Have you been published in any magazines?
Sheryl: Yes. Gray Modes Imaging, Curves volume 1. and Cynical Magazine.
Jchell: Besides modeling, have you done any acting?
Sheryl: In grade school I enjoyed drama and theater, I haven't done any acting as an adult but would love to give it a try.
Jchell: Let's talk about your beauty regimen: How do you keep your hair and skin looking healthy?
Sheryl: Drinking lots of water and staying away from fried foods really makes a difference for my skin. With my hair, I make sure to deep condition & try to not over style it due to heat damage. I have learned if I want color in my hair to leave it to the professionals!
Jchell: What are your favorite fashion trends you love?
Sheryl: I don't overly follow trends, I kind of do my own thing. If I like it, I wear it. I do however try to stay in the season color schemes (bright colors for summer and spring, neutral ones for fall and winter).
Jchell: Every girl has a special "can't live without this" in her closet, what's yours?
Sheryl: My cowgirl boots! All year round and with any outfit for me.
Jchell: Who is your favorite photographer(s)?
Sheryl: I have a few I absolutely love and quite few I cannot wait to work with. My go to photographer that I use for my updated model body and headshots is Heather Michalsky Photography in Crosby Texas. She works very well with plus size models. I'll have a vision and she adds her touch and then magic happens. Her photos say it all! My other go to is AW Photography in Moss Hill Texas. She has this artsy flair, any time I need a nontraditional photo, she is my girl!
Jchell: Knowing what you know, what advice would you give to other models trying to establish themselves?
Sheryl: The best advice I can give is the best advice that I have received myself. Which is, invest in yourself! In every way. If modeling is something you really want to persue, don't expect it to just happen, make it happen!
Jchell: Is there anything else you would like to add?
Sheryl: I just want to thank you Ms. Jchell Jones for this opportunity. I see all the work you do and it's just great.
