Name: Michele Lawson

What were you doing prior to modeling?
I started performing in the theater while attending college. I have “paid my dues”
by working as a background actor in television and film. I even appeared in
3 Denzel Washington movies before I started modeling.
People would be surprised to know?
People are surprised to know that I ride horses- Western / English riding
and I write poetry. The biggest surprise is my true age.
What are your proudest accomplishments?
My proudest accomplishments are my five children and obtaining my
undergraduate, as well as my graduate degree. I feel that I have
achieved so much all with their love and support.
Growing up, who did you look up to as your hero?
I looked up to both of my parents who worked for the City of New York and
each had their own business. They always inspired us to achieve
greatness and to never give up. They were both my heroes.

I tell my fiancé and my children that “I love them” everyday.
List 3 adjectives that best describe you?
The three adjectives that describe me are: Dynamic,
Independent, and Adventurous.
Describe your personal style…
I am very conservative and reserved. I play it safe with not too many
colors and color coordinate each outfit. I am working to change
that by adding more colors and trendy patterns.
Your favorite place you have traveled to?
The favorite place that I traveled to is Jamaica, West Indies because
the sand was clean and the water was clear. I enjoyed many
different parts of the island. It is a un and sexy island.
Your favorite film?
My favorite film is Love Jones with Nia Long and Larenz Tate. It is my favorite
movie because the characters in the movie show how many “games”
men/women play when dealing with love and relationships.
Your favorite hobby?
My favorite hobby is horseback riding. I started riding while attending camp
at the age of 6 and by the time I got to college I had learned
English riding and dressage jumping.
If there’s a destination or item you would recommend us to check out or visit about your town what would you recommend?
I would recommend that you visit Harlem, New York where I grew up
which is lovingly called- “Uptown”. The neighborhood has changed
dramaticallybut I still love it. The buildings are historic landmarks,
with new restaurants and there are many so sites to visit such as:
GrantsTomb and the Schomberg Library. There is never a dull
moment and there is always something to do uptown.
Your favorite song?
My favorite song now is “On the Run” by Jay-Z and Beyonce because the
song talks about being on the run with the person that you love. I would
definitely go on the run with my fiancé and soulmate, James.
What is your wish for 2014?
My wish for 2014 is to take my acting and modeling career to the next level.
I would like to obtain work in commercial / lifestyle print work,
commercials, film and television. I am striving to be
where I should be in my career.
