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.

Professional Model and Actor

When did you realize your gift?
I realized it was a gift and something I just needed to do when every time I ran into a hardship…It was the only thing I could turn to that would make me feel better.
How did you get started?
I use to get made fun of, a lot, my 5th grade teacher told me I was “so pretty” everyday and suggested I go to a Barbizon to get proper training. My mom was against any/everything I wanted to do but I kept that thought in the back of my mind. When I became old enough…I use to sneak to casting calls and auditions.
What is your current take on the industry? Where do you want to see it go?
I feel that the women of color are taken seriously in the industry…I’d love to see more natural hair models as the face of a major brand

Freedom – Beyonce

A boat, enough gas to get me a shore and a bag full of Gold
