Delainia Wilkinson's Modeling Jobs, Acting Auditions and Additional Experience
Hello talented world, my full name is Delainia Silasa Wilkinson I was born on a beautiful autum morning on October 12th 1988. I was not born a single baby, I have an identical twin.I am the oldest by 30 minutes. I was raised in a single parent home of three children, I am the middle child and love every minute of the attention struggle. Having a best friend around 24 hours, 7 days a week never gets old. Having a walking mirror with me is even better.
I started modeling when I was four, putting my mothers heels on, blouses and strutting my stuff down my personal three foot runway, the only hall way in the house. I have been the top of the T cheerleader with my small legs and weightless figure. I was best at running in T-ball and basketball. Entering middle school(juniorhigh) I knew I had to use my legs for something, I ran track and was part of the dance team.
Having such an intrest in modeling I became part of local fashion shows and performances. Entering high school was a big chance for me to show off my modeling talent. There were no more dresscodes, the high knees were out and the high heels were in. The large halls of Dunbar High school was my run way and the audience was the 2,000 students ranging from freshman to seniors. It was not until junior year I decided to break out of my shy shell and bare it all and become a pageant girl. A Hawiian Tropic girl at that. I never made it to Hawaii but it did mean Bikini and cocktail dresses yikes!My first pageant, my knees were shaking and I had no idea what to expect. All I knew was that there was a cash prize and I had a chance to go to Hawaii if I won it all. I finally sucked my fear up,because I knew if I wanted to be a model I would have to show more than just a pretty face. My first pageant preliminary I had naked phobia and could not uncross my arms or get my walk in shape. I was sure I was walking the plank of doom when stepping onto the stage. I hummed "twinkle twinkle little star" and I was done and was fully relieved. It seemed to be the longest five minutes ever to be. It was finally over and after about 10 prelims my worries were over, and I became comfortable in my skin. My pageant coach Tara Vaught taught me how to stand and walk when baring the most skin. I profected it and used it in my photoshoots and other bikini contest.
Working out is not fun for me I do not enjoy being short of breath, but I make myself do a little to stay toned. I do not consider my self thin, skinny, or tiny, nor do I consider myself thick, fat, or huge. I look at my self as being healthy and fit. I believe modeling is a natural beauty, along with healthy choices, good attitude, and confidence. With these few elements I believe anyone could be any model they choose to be. I also believe to become a successful model one would need all of these elements as well as a voice, self determination and faith, that they can do it.
When reading voice I mean being able to speak up, you never have to do something you dont want to do to get noticed.Also being able to speak well will help get you there. Models are constantly looked at as empty brains or not intelligent. I believe that that is not fair, or bad judgement to us models which makes us all fighters.
I know that beauty is not a color, my beauty is more than a pretty face it is in my walk, in my heart and in my speech. I know it should be easy to get where I am trying to go. But some are a ahead of me. I want to be the top of the top so if I continue to push I will make it there. I give all of the best of luck to all the talent out there and may many of our wishes come true.
I Have been party of numerous promotional contest and fashion events for Troy Sports, Hawiian Tropic, Harley Davidson, Posh, and local designers. for more pictures and info. www
