Stepping out of the box and scene for the camera is exactly what fearless and fierce is all about–confidently expressing oneself.
Alacia Monique is a 32-year old southern beauty born and raised in Beaumont TX, who works and mothers, alongside setting the foundation to becoming a full-time model. Alacia is no stranger to modeling, in fact, she is one individual who used modeling as a healing, turning her truths into her strengths.
“Modeling became a point of focus when I began to try to heal from past hurts and insecurities. I started going to therapy” said Alacia “ My therapist challenged me to step outside of the box–I wouldn’t say it’s only my passion but I am passionate about it.”
Alacia recently returned to modeling after sitting out for nearly 3 years. Since her return, she has been working on rebuilding her portfolio for future representation with modeling agencies in Dallas and surrounding areas.
As a woman of many layers balancing life and her dreams, Alacia’s drive to stay focused and motivated is effortlessly achieved through hard times, with the help of unconditional love received as a parent and perseverance.
“I have an amazing 1-year-old who is everything. He makes me want to pursue my dream even more than I did before. He shows me daily that trying and failing isn’t the problem because eventually you’ll get it.” said Alacia “Modeling is a challenge itself. I stay motivated by continuing to tell myself this is something I want to do but I need to do the most–my mental health depends on it, when I’m modeling I escape.”
Though modeling plays the role as Alacia’s first love, she does plan to expand her talents one day onto the big screen as a performing artist. In the meantime, Monique will be working on obtaining proper management before the end of 2018.
Being a true advocate of making your life worth living is exactly what chasing your dreams is all about. Alacia is not just your regular girl. She’s a woman whose dreams allow her to rest well, as her future is already manifesting in her favor through hard work and dedication. The sky’s the limit for Mrs. Alacia Monique.
