Follow your dreams, believe in yourself and never give up ~ Kennedy Paige
1. How old were you when you started modeling?
I started modeling at 9 1/2 years old.
2. What kind of positive impacts do you want to have on future models who look up to you?
I am still a young model, but my motto is: "be true to yourself”. Stay who you are. I am not a different person on a set than at school with my friends. I mean I am the same person! I am Jade! hahaha
3. Do you plan on continuing your modeling career throughout adulthood?
I love modeling! I love working with photographers and being a part of their creation! I don't know what the future will be, but I know I love it. I love fashion! Sometimes I would love to take part of a team of designers and create. Just as long as I have a passion.
4. What other talents do you possess other than modeling?
Acting and dancing are definitely 2 things I love alot. I enjoy the improv classes in acting, and working on comedy! My teachers love working with me on Drama, which is harder to me, but you have to be real and in the moment! Like in dance, you have to be in the moment and on the music. I enjoy all my dance classes. I do ballet, Acro Jazz, lyrical contemporary, turns and tech, and started hip hop this year!
5. What do you plan on achieving during your career?
I admire Angelina Jolie for her achievements! She is absolutely one of my idols and inspiration. She is not only beautiful! She is smart, she has a heart, and she loves people. As much as I do. On top of the acting or modeling, in my dreams I also want to be a lawyer. I like what is fair! I have no problem to stand up for a friend or for myself when it is needed. I like to help to find the balance.
6. By looking at your Instagram posts, it's safe to say that your fashion choices are on point, do you plan on dipping into the fashion industry anytime soon?
It is all about opportunities! But I would love to, I’ve worked recently for a brand and was asking to comment on some of the choices made in a catalogue, and I had so much fun! Sharing my thoughts was definitely a great moment in my day. I said to them: “I would love to work on a collection!!" Haha who knows!
7. What message do you have for teens in the entertainment industry who struggle with staying true to themselves and their values?
Surround yourself with people who love you for who you are, and the day you get lost, they will be there to help you and get you to your home. Be sure to always do what you feel is right!
8. Your hair looks marvelous all the time. What hair products do you use to keep your hair so healthy?
Always L’Oréal, their shampoo and a conditioner. I do a deep conditioning in a hair salon and trim my hair sometimes. I don't use gel, or spray (except for a dance competition). I let my hair dry naturally, or I apply a heat protector before working on my hair.
9. Please tell us ALL about your tutti frutti photo shoot experience.
It was a surprise! I did not expect to do that! I loved it! It was fun! I did not have much to do first while they were placing the fruits all around me. I couldn't see what they were doing exactly. But when Ariel started to shoot and the team adjusted the fruits I knew I had to do more than just lay down. I had to get the camera and get the focus. I love the result!
Hello! My name is LondonRose and I turned 4 in London this summer. My explorations were over the top and out of this country!! I will be your tour guide and share my journey with you. Lets get started!!
Last week, the comic book world trembled with the awesome surprise that Marvel's Civil War II arc would introduce an Iron Man replacement, Riri Williams. The 15-year-old MIT student reverse engineers Tony Stark's trademark armor, gaining his admiration and support. In less than a week, all available issues of Invincible Iron Man #7 (Williams' debut) through #11 sold out completely. Now an interesting bit of backstory's bubbled up through the inter-ether: Invincible Iron Man artist and co-creator Mike Deodato, Jr. tweeted that Riri Williams was not only inspired by but based on 14-year-old actress Skai Jackson: Jackson thanked the artist on Instagram, writing,
"Thank you @mikedeodato ! I am so honored that I was your inspiration. Young black girls can be superheroes too! #blackgirlmagic #skaisthelimit #ririwilliams #ironman #marvel."
Jackson starred in Disney Channel's Jessie as Zuri Ross from 2011-'15; she's currently starring on the spinoff Bunk'd, which launched last summer and will return in August. She previously voice-acted on Nick Jr.'s Bubble Guppies. Interestingly, folks on Twitter were already spotting the likeness and calling for Jackson to play Iron Man in Marvel's upcoming movies:
