How were you discovered?

I wasn’t. I’ve always wanted to model and once the opportunity presented itself, I grabbed  it and hit the ground running.

What inspired you to pursue modeling?

I grew up acting; theater and off broadway, and from a young age I’ve always wanted to take the step towards modeling. When my older brother started to act on TV soaps, commercials, and model, I saw it was possible to use my talents on stage in other areas I wanted to pursue. When you act you become the persona of the character and that is something I’m able to use to my advantage in modeling with various outfit and make-up changes.

You have an outstanding hourglass figure, where do the curves come from and how do you stay in shape?

God, My mom, & Africa are to credit for the curves =) I’m Nigerian and fortunate enough to have been born and raised there for the first 7 years of my life so I got to experience the delicious, spicy, and highly nutritous foods, my culture is famous for. Staying in shape to me simply means making the gym a consistent part of my routine so I work out 3-4 days a week

Which of your features attract the most attention?

My face. I get complimented on my eyes and smile a lot. My butt also tends to turn heads

What kind of shoots/work do you enjoy the most?

I honestly love them all. I enjoy being pushed to what I think is my creative limit only to discover a whole new part of myself.

What are some of your credits ?

Funkmaster Flex InFlexWeTrust: Model of the Week, Featured on All American Dimes, Ggurls.com, HustleBunny.com.  I’ve shot w/John Ricard, Courage (2020Photography), Lloyd Parks (43Studios), and Shawn Darnell (FyneGirlz). There are a few publishings in the works so stay tuned!!

Tell us some of your long term goals….

To be in every magazine you touch and on every website that showcases some of the hottest and most talented models in the game.

Do you have any tattoos or piercings?

I have one tattoo (of an ankh) and 5 piercings (ears, bellybutton, tongue, & “the love below” *wink*)

Your beauty can easily be intimidating, but have you ever been afraid before a shoot?

I remember feeling nervous at my first shoot — a feeling I’d never encountered in all my years of theater but once I found my footing, there was no stopping me.

People would be surprised to know that ___________?

People would be surprised to know that my favorite thing to do when I was younger aside from acting was participating in “midnight runs”, It was when my youth group would go around the various areas on nyc where the homeless were known to gather at night and give them food, clothing, & toiletries (esp to the women).

Your idea of relaxing is?

A recent trip to Jamaica with my girls revealed the true definition of relaxation; Me, on the beach, lounging in a floating beach chair, margarita in hand, & my favorite shades on.

You’ve got front row tickets to see your favorite artist. Who is it and why?

Front Row, Lil Wayne …why? Because I have yet to hear one weezy song I didn’t love especially his classics from his teenage years.

Your favorite getaway spot?

(This is gonna sound corny but..)  in “his” arms. I feel when you have someone special who effortlessly brings a smile to your face, it won’t matter where you are, just being around them is your paradise :] ..but if all else fails NEGRIL! lol

How does Hip Hop music impact your daily life and your work? Whats your favorite song of the moment?

It moves me. I’m with my ipod all day. It’s bumpin in the car, plugged in when I get to the office and I’m working, and ALWAYS on hand in the gym. Working out without my music would be near impossible. Favorite song of the moment: Lil Wayne- If I Die Today (feat. Rick Ross)

What are your turnons?

A sensual person. I love someone who is in tune with my body language and reacts accordingly .. I can be a little sarcastic

What are your turnoffs?

Lies, Lack of Confidence, & a thoughtless person: always about themselves and never for you.

What’s the craziest thing a fan has done to get your attention?

I had a guy send me a video of him pleasing himself — from beginning to the very end *splash!*

Who have you enjoyed working with the most? And name someone you would love to work with?

I have to say shooting with Shawn Darnell has been the most fun thus far, however, there are other talented photographers I would absolutely LOVE to work with; Facet Studio, Frank Antonio, Derrick Clegg, Melvin James, VXN Studious, & MQ Images, just to name a few.

The most sensual shoot you’ve ever done and what made it so sexy?

It would have to be my most recent shoot, before the shoot, a special friend made quite the impact and that frame of mind kept me in an extremely erotic mood the duration of the shoot.

What should we expect to see you doing in the near future?

It ALL!  and definitely follow me on twitter (@_bellabeauty_), subscribe to my youtube (http://youtube.com/brazenbella) & be sure to check out http://bellabunny.bigcartel.com for my HOT posters and PLACE YOUR ORDER TODAY! I’m currently working on a few other projects so stay tuned!

Any parting words or people you would like to thank?

I’d like to thank my girl Chocolate Chyna Doll & Melissa Irish for holding me down. Superman & Stunnaz for the continued support. And a BIG BIG shoutout and sincere thanks to all my fans!!! Don’t forget to show that consistent support as my merchandise start rolling out and going up for purchase! *xoxo*

How were you discovered?

Well I wasn’t exactly “discovered” I took all sorts of lessons and classes since the age of 5 and my first modeling photo shoot I was 8 years old.

Observers can see from your portfolio the progression you have made as a model; can you tell us where you have improved and what you have learned?

You learn with every photo shoot you do and grow in your craft. Working with experienced photographers I’ve learned from them: better posing, positioning and facial expressions. Also you get higher quality and better images.

Your features are outstanding and natural, beautiful face, skin, shape, and just an overall unique look. I’m sure you get asked often to explain your heritage but where do the curves and features come from and how do you stay in shape?

I am a mixed Latina from a Cuban & Spanish father and Puerto Rican mother and born in the NYC. I guess a good combination of my parents genes made me! Lol. I used to stay in shape easily when I was a trained dancer. Now I go to the gym and work out my entire body several times a week. It’s important to take care of your body and to stay active.

How have you been able to balance your daily life and occupation with modeling and what keeps you grounded?

It’s a balancing act when you do a lot of different things like I do. All you can do is stay organized and professional and do the best you can. Just handle your business and prioritize.

What kind of modeling or work do you enjoy the most?

I think honestly for me my favorite was Pageantry and Promotional modeling because it involves all of you and how u present yourself and speak. But I enjoy everything actually, there’s pros and cons in everything.

Your resume continues to grow, please tell our readers some of the work you have completed and where they have seen and will see you?

I’ve come out in Sweets Magazine Issue #13, I have a 6 page spread there and I have come out in the first print edition of Gorgeous Magazine. I’ve done some more music videos such as Lloyd Banks ft. Lloyd “Any Girl”. I hope to finally get my personal website up: http://www.JeniceMarie.com. I have more magazine features coming out soon and to continue to bigger and better things!

You were the first model KUSH chose as a Kushion, the 1st guest ever on Kush Radio and our first collaboration with you turns out being a shoot for Sweets Mag, tell us what you think has made you a hot commodity?

Well first off Thank you and I am much honored to be your first! Aww I’m not such a hot commodity – yet, LOL. There are things that I am happy about what I have done and am doing but I have a ways to go. I’m proud of my accomplishments and that people are eager to work with me.

You are intelligent and beautiful and as a model expected to be confident, but can you tell us about a time during your modeling career when you were nervous and how you dealt with it?

I am always a little nervous! It’s to exude confidence even when internally you are a unsure, that’s only natural. You’ve just got to take a deep breath and do it and not be afraid or upset to hear a no or something you don’t want to. It happens many times in this game, you just got to take it with grace and move on to the next.

People would be surprised to know that ___________?

That I am a NJ state EMT.

What is the best advice you have received since you began your modeling career?

Don’t be afraid to listen and grow from constructive criticism. Learn from all of your experiences, good and the bad. And that you’ll hear a lot of No’s more then Yes’s, don’t let that get to you or take it too personal.

You’ve got front row tickets to see your favorite artist. Who is it and why?

It would have to be Lady Gaga. I am dying to see a live performance of hers. She is so creative and different. She embodies truly what it is to be an artist. I really like her as a person and performer.

Your favorite getaway spot?

Anywhere quiet desolate with a beach, many Caribbean islands I enjoy.

How does Hip Hop music impact your daily life and your work? What is your favorite song of the moment?

I love hip hop music and pretty much I like something in every genera of music. Music is the soundtrack of my life; it’s a big part of me. One of my favorite songs of the moment is Jamie Foxx ft. Drake “Fall for your type”.

24 hours to do whatever Jenice wants, wherever Jenice wants to be, where and what do we find you doing?

LOL, makes me think of the song “24 hours to live”. Hmmm I would run amuck and try to accomplish in that time what I want to before I die. I’d be mostly with friends and family saying goodbye and preparing for the next life.

When and what makes you feel beautiful and sexy?

Simply just being happy.

What’s the craziest thing a fan/admirer has done to get your attention?

I’ve had some wierdos harass me. I try to be nice but nothing to crazy or out of had thank God.

Who have you enjoyed working with the most? And name someone you would love to work with?

A photographer who I really enjoy working with is C.E Wiley. He’s been a great friend and mentor and most importantly he is very professional when it comes to working. I also really like the shoot I did with MJ Flix, I love his work and would definitely work with him again. I really admire and love Maya Guez’s art. I am dying to work with her, she is amazing. And there are many other photographers that I look forward to be working with in the future as well.

What should we expect to see you doing in the near future?

Who knows sky is the limit! I am open to whatever opportunities that come my way and to make the best of it!

Any parting words or people you would like to thank?

Thanks always to Kush for all the love!
