Today we’d like to introduce you to Leximoniquue.
Hi Leximoniquue, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
Hi, my name is Leximoniquue and I’m from Johnston County. Growing up, I was always taught the value of hard work. With that instilled in me, it has molded me into the person I am today.
A year ago, I was going through some things in my life and I needed a change. I moved to Raleigh and shortly after that, I took a trip to the beach. In reviewing my photos, I saw more than my image… I saw my gift.
I went home and I started to put in the work of modeling. I would coordinate outfits and my mom and I would pick locations to do photoshoots. One day, in the process of doing a photoshoot, in humor I randomly suggested laying on the ground.
My mom thought it was a crazy idea but she said “Why not?” I posted a TikTok from that photoshoot and as a result, 3.4 million views were born! I also started working with DollsExclusive, a luxury, crochet-apparel company. I had my first radio station interview with the content “Go-getters” highlighting local entrepreneurs.
While on the show, I met an award-winning photographer and from there we knew we had to work together. I presented him with my vision of a classic car photoshoot. As with anything, modeling can have its challenges and on the day of the photoshoot, there was one… heavy rain.
With the two determinations of model and photographer, the images I envisioned were created. Currently, I’m in school to be an Esthetician and set to graduate in October 2022. With my passion for modeling and Esthetics, I’m excited to see where this road takes me and I see great things in my future.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
Of course, it hasn’t been a smooth road. Challenges I’ve faced since I started modeling, are realizing that not everyone will support you, and things that look promising didn’t come to fruition.
Also, you have to develop a certain mindset to combat multiple internal and external challenges.
Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I am a model, Instagram influencer, content creator, and YouTuber.
I’m also an Esthetician student and I would like my expertise to be in waxing, makeup, and facial treatments. I am most proud of my chasing my dreams and doing what I love.
Also, my creativity in capturing my own images. What sets me apart is, that I don’t follow the road that most travel, I’m my own navigator.
What quality or characteristic do you feel is most important to your success?
My social media personality and real-life personality are the same. That makes me genuine to what you see. I feel it’s important to love what you do and be passionate about it.
