EL: How did you both get your start in modeling?
Shadai: I didn't get my start in modeling until a little over 2 years ago but I've always had a desire to model since I was 4-5 years old.
Tiffany: I started with Veatrice Conley and later became a model for the 100 Black Women for many of their shows. After that through networking and model calls, I was able to get more out there.
EL: Let's talk the future.... Where do you ladies see yourselves in the next 5 years? Do you want to make modeling a long term career?

Tiffany: I will be signed with a major modeling and talent agency and be full time in the modeling industry.
EL: In a career like modeling, you are bound to have people watching your every move. What advice would you give the young girls who look up to you both and would like to someday pursue modeling as well???
Shadai: My advice would be to find the love for yourself first. It's so important to love yourself and find your self worth. With that comes along the confidence to pursue your dream of modeling.
Tiffany: I would tell her to go for her dreams now, stay focused, visualize herself in being what she desires to be, research research research!! And tell fear to F@$k off!!
EL: Ok... So last, but not least... How did it feel to be a model for Edwina LaShan and Kenya Iman? How was the styling process for the both of you?
