Remonia Morrison at TV stage of Pulse search
The Pulse Search For The Million Dollar Girl was launched in 2014, unearthing hundreds of young women anxious to become international models and to win the $1 million prize.
Now the top-21 new faces selected at the live finals last August will compete for the top prize on the reality TV show for the event. The reality show, featuring Pulse, Vogue and L'OrÈal supermodel Jeneil Williams, will run for 10 weeks and is the culmination of the 2014 search. This will be followed by the 2015 live show, which ends in August of this year.
At the end of the TV show, one lucky girl with the perfect face, body and spirit will be selected Pulse's Million Dollar Girl and awarded $1 million in cash and prizes (with no less than $300,000 in cash). Prizes include an airline ticket to New York to visit model agencies, guaranteed modelling contracts and weekends on Jamaica's north coast.
Interested new faces who think that they have what it takes to be the 2015 winner are asked to visit Pulse at 38a Trafalgar Road, New Kingston, any Wednesday at 4 p.m., taking along a swimsuit and pair of high-heeled shoes. They may also call 960-0049.
The TV contestant in the spotlight this week is Remonia Morrison.
This 23-year-old graduate of the University of Albany, NY, in actuarial and mathematical science, stands at 5'8" tall. Originally from Portmore, St Catherine, she lives in New York.
Her favourite Pulse model is Jeneil Williams. She notes that Williams has taken the modelling industry by storm and has accomplished many amazing things which put Jamaica on the fashion map. Remonia considers Jeneil's cosmetic contract with L'OrÈal Paris a major achievement.
who is Remonia
Remonia says: "The most interesting thing about me would be how animated I am when it comes to telling a story, or just the way I react to things. It's usually one of the first things that people point out about me."
"Some cool, fun facts about me - I love to sing all types of music, sometimes I even try opera, even though it might not be so good. I am also very creative/artistic. I always seem to find a way to put things together that creates something cool," Remonia added.
A track star for about 15 years, Morrison has won several gold medals in the 400 metres, but says her ultimate sport is netball.
She loves food - curry goat, oxtail and rice and peas are her food favourites; modelling, and wants to have a successful and international career.
