Smart is so Sexy #SISS
Tiera Nicole. My age is disclosed to only a select few.... Top flight info!!! Lol.... I'm from Baltimore, MD but currently reside in New York City. I've been in the arts in some way my entire life. I danced (ballet, modern, hip hop) from age 6-18 and I've been writing since about the same amount of time. I'm a US Air Force veteran and when I got out I jumped right back into the arts, taking up acting and modeling. But it wasn't until August of 2012 that I decided to pursue modeling as a career...
MERGEBY. What's your favorite song right now?
Tiera Nicole. I really don't have a favorite anything because I'm way too indecisive... I can barely make up my mind on how I want to wear my hair, hence why it's shaved off.... Lol But I will tell you that I'm a Beyoncé fanatic so she can do no wrong in my book...
MERGEBY. What Type of Model would you be considered?
MERGEBY. What was your first Job?
Tiera Nicole. A photo-shoot for a local clothing line back in 2008.
MERGEBY. How do you deal with disappointment?
Tiera Nicole. I truly believe that everything happens for the good... I don't believe in negativity.. If I don't get a gig or sign
to an agency or have a bad shoot, I truly believe that there is something positive to take from the experience that will continue to push me further along on my journey... The universe ALWAYS conspires in your favor... ALWAYS
Tiera Nicole. Now are we speaking mentally or physically??? Cause they are two completely diff entities....
Mentally: Strength - I feel that I have what it takes to be one of the heavy hitters in this biz
Weakness- I'm waaaay too much of a perfectionist and therefore can sometimes be too hard in myself
Physically: Strengths - my body is all natural and in the Glamour world, a NATURAL big booty and small waist is becoming rare.... Even when I was 95 lbs. in high school, I had booty and thighs.... Also I feel my smile is the BEST part of my body... My tattoo is starting to make a name for itself, it's actually becoming more famous than I am!! Lol
Weakness- probably my height..... Wish I were a tad taller... I'm 5'2
Tiera Nicole. That people think just because you're a Glamour model that you're easy or a hoe.... Sexuality is apart of life but just because I show my body doesn't mean I GIVE it.... We are fantasies, NOT realities......
MERGEBY. What’s the secret of you always looking glamorous?
Tiera Nicole. I have VERY poor eating habits so I HAVE to
workout... In my line of work, voluptuous body parts are great so I can stand to have a pizza or ice cream but I have to be careful that it doesn't get out of hand!!! Lol... So I'm in the gym at least 3-4 times a week.... And WATER!! Lots and lots of water
MERGEBY. Can you tell us some of the challenges that you have come across?
Tiera Nicole. Trying to create a name for myself and refusing to compromise myself and my integrity in the process.... It's easy to get sucked in to the BS but I refuse so it is taking me a little longer to reach that point because I refuse to compromise
MERGEBY. What are some of your greatest achievements thus far?
Tiera Nicole. Self publishing my first novel, "Love Sex & Baggage"... It's available on www.amazon.com I plan to rerelease it this year and I'm in the process of writing my second book... I am extremely proud of that and if my modeling goes no further then its all good because being a published author will ALWAYS sustain me....
MERGEBY. What is your ultimate goal for your career?
Tiera Nicole. To have Tiera Nicole become a household name. To become a best selling author and mentor young girls aspiring to get into the arts (whether dance, acting, writing, or modeling)
Tiera Nicole. I'm not going to go into details cause it was a pretty bad experience but an eye opener for me. When I first moved to NYC in December 2009, I was put out of a house that was like an artist house and had to sleep in Penn Station for a night cause I had no where else to go... Prior to, I was extremely naive and bright eyed about everything, being from a sheltered family... That experience really woke me up to the reality of this industry and how cruel people can be....
MERGEBY. Question, all the guys want to know… Are you single?
Tiera Nicole. Ummm lol no I am not and I know they don't want to hear this but he's absolutely great....
Tiera Nicole. I am definitely all about a man's mental.... If you look at the history of guys I've dated or my ex boyfriends, they all are completely different physically but they all are great men inside and are deep intellectual people such as myself....
MERGEBY. Can you name a model everyone should look out for, other than you?
Tiera Nicole. Definitely Wankaego.. Effing love her! She's dope!!
MERGEBY. Tips for men who want to be your Mr. Right?
Tiera Nicole. Well as of right now that slot is taken BUT should it become available, they definitely have to come with GREAT intellectual conversation.... I don't care how much you bench press or the size of your package, if you can't talk to me about Sigmund Freud or about the affairs of our world, then keep it moving baby doll....
MERGEBY. Twitter or Facebook? Which do you prefer?
Tiera Nicole. Twitter... I'm hardly ever on FB
MERGEBY. Where can our audience see more of you?
Tiera Nicole. Follow me on
Twitter - @IamTieraNicole Instagram - @IamTieraNicole I have a website but its under construction...
MERGEBY. What advice do you have for young women, trying to get in the industry?
Tiera Nicole. Never ever ever ever ever ever compromise who you are and what you're about for a buck or worse, Fame... It's not worth it!!!!
