AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL Cycle nine winner Saleisha is kicking off her modeling career in style, on the cover of the February issue of Seventeen Magazine.
Inside the magazine, she discusses what it feels like to be AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL, and talks about the thrill of modeling. “I love to be fabulous and feel all cute, and I love to dress up. Now I always have my hair and makeup done, and I get to dress in all these fancy, expensive designer clothes — that’s every little girl’s dream. It feels great. I love it! I wish I could sleep like that,” she says.
Saleisha also talks about her childhood, She says, “My grandma basically raised me. I lived with her until I was like 17. We have a great relationship and I respect her, but at the same time I really, really wanted that perfect family — with the white picket fence and the soccer van. My parents had me really young; my Dad was 17; and my mom was 16. So it was hard for them.”
The cover and six-page fashion spread in Seventeen magazine is awarded to the winner of The CW’s AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL, along with a management contract with Elite Model Management, and $100,000 contract with cosmetics giant CoverGirl.
