Caribbean Model Search profiles
published: Friday | November 7, 2008

We continue our feature on the contestants in the Pulse Caribbean Model Search with three hopefuls.

Name: Krystina Black


Height: 5' 7"

Age: 18 years

Whether she owns and operates a popular design house or becomes the most-sought-after black model in the world, Krystina certainly has her sights set on making it big in the fashion industry.

Currently a student at the St Andrew High School, Krystina uses every opportunity to expand her creative, artistic side. She is very interested in clothing and fashion design and cites the Beyoncé-headed House of Dereon as her inspiration. "The clothes are ultra feminine; the cuts, the fabrics truly accentuate the woman," Krystina said.

While keeping up with her favourite Beyoncé fashion, the teen is also keen to emulate her favourite supermodel, Tyra Banks. "She is my inspiration for even wanting to be a model. I hope to garner great success from the runway, whether I am on it or watching my designs," she said.

Name: Jodian Myrie


Height: 5' 10"

Age: 18 years

Her secret weapon is not her long limbs or even her dark, smooth skin, Jodian's allure is all in her megawatt smile and dimples. The effervescent dark-skinned teen enjoys listening to music, dancing and surfing the Internet.

She is also an avid sportswoman who has participated in high jump, long jump and national cheerleading competitions. Jodian is a graduate of Meadowbrook High School and is currently reading for a degree in business administration at the University of Technology.

Name: Taneisha Sinclair


Height: 5' 7"

Age: 17 years

Beauty, brains and mega personality barely sum up the bubbly Taneisha Sinclair. A lower sixth form student at Campion College, the talkative teen aspires to do medicine but first wants to 'try her face' at fashion. With a passion for travel and adventure to go with her love for fashion and the sciences, she also enjoys reading, swimming and playing badminton.

She identifies herself most with Pulse Vogue Champ Jaunel McKenzie and hopes to replicate and even surpass her success. "She has such a long list of achievements and I really want the world of fashion to embrace me as much as it has embraced her," Taneisha said.
