Tanisha Thomas

by Kate Penn

With her signature long legs and high fashion poses, Tanisha has graced many magazines, movies and ripped the runway for some of the hottest designers and fashion shows.  Playing in her mother’s closet as a child to building her singing and modeling career, it’s no surprise she has been called a trailblazer, go getter and fierce.  As God being the center of her strength, her steadfast determination and incredible ability to block out the negativity, success is inevitable.  So of course, I had to interview this rising star to see what makes her tick.

K:  Besides modeling, what are some of your other passions?

T:  Singing has always been another   passion of mine. I love to sing. It's an  outlet for me. I can express my feelings through songs. I ,also, like to design clothes, jewelry and home décor. I love details and patterns. Designing is relaxing for me. At the end of all the sewing and cutting, I get to see what God has created in my mind.


K:  Who would you like to work with as a model?

T: I would love to model for designer Donatella Versace. I am obsessed with her designs! She is just as talented as her late brother Gianni Versace.


K: What words of wisdom would you give an aspiring model?

T:   Be confident in who you are on the inside, not the outside. It's how you view yourself on the inside — is what will sustain you in the industry. Do your homework and learn the business to be sure and confident that    modeling is for you. Never stop trying! Keep seeking, asking and knocking on the right doors! Surround yourself with those who will correct, love and encourage you to press for your dreams!


K: What are your upcoming projects?

T:   As the Style & Glam Cover Model Search winner, I’m excited about being the cover model for Style and Glam Magazine and being a featured host on their You Tube TV show and reality TV series, “Behind The Runway.”
