#WCE Vachelle Tarkington
Meet Vachelle Tarkington! We chose her as our #WCE, not because she can take a wicked photo, but because in an era where the term model means posing in front of a camera phone for likes, she actually is signed to an agency and works as an actress and model professionally. This tiny body is a vessel for a huge personality and conscious soul.
