The Avenue, Where Models Live
Deeper than a Photo #DTAP
Layna Britain. Hello, everyone! My name is Layna Britain, I am 23 and I am a full time model and student out of Alabama. I got my start about two and half years ago in England. It took the push of someone close to me to start modeling and I’m grateful that I had someone there to motivate me.
MERGEBY. What's your favorite song right now?

Layna Britain. Disappointment sucks for everyone. I just try to push myself harder to get to a better place.
MERGEBY. Talk about your strength and weakness in Modeling?
Layna Britain. I would say my strength is being able to establish good grounds with the people I’m working with. They never have to worry about me being a “Diva” on set or being arrogant. My weakness would definitely be being too nice to those who try to persuade me to shoot things that I don’t feel comfortable shooting.
MERGEBY. What is a big pet peeve of yours from the industry?
MERGEBY. What’s the secret of you always looking glamorous?
Layna Britain. Haha. I wouldn’t say all that, but I think it’s very important to try to stay as stress free as possible because if you’re stressing, it WILL show eventually.
MERGEBY. Can you tell us some of the challenges that you have come across?

MERGEBY. What was the craziest experience that you’ve had in the industry? (story)
Layna Britain. I actually had a photographer tell me that the only way I would ever get published is if he shot me and photo-shopped me to look like what people were looking for.
MERGEBY. Question, all the guys want to know… Are you single?
MERGEBY. What attracts you about a guy?
Layna Britain. I would say that intellect is the most important thing I look for in a guy.
MERGEBY. Can you name a model everyone should look out for, other than you?

MERGEBY. Tips for men who want to be your Mr. Right?
Layna Britain. STOP SAGGING! Lol
MERGEBY. Twitter or Facebook? Which do you prefer?

MERGEBY. What advice do you have for young women, trying to get in the industry?
Layna Britain. Do not let anyone tell you, you aren’t good enough to do something. You may not get a yes all the time but it doesn’t mean quit trying.
