Tell us (and the world) about YOU, who you are, and how you’re changing the game in your niche/world/domain
My name is Mica Moody, and I’m a model in LA. I’m diversifying the industry, and showing the world that you don’t have to be a tall, skinny, blonde with perfect skin to be a model. There are so many other types of modeling besides runway, which is what we automatically think of. I want more Asian representation, and I want to help other models break into the industry!
