@FrezhMagazine: Who do you consider to be the biggest influences in your life?
@NaimaMora:I really look up to my grandmother. She was an incredible woman and figure in my life who showed me that I could be successful as an artist. She taught me that you can have success with integrity and dignity. She inspired me!
@FrezhMagazine: thats great! How Long have you been into Modeling and Music?
@NaimaMora: Well my parents are musicians so I actually grew up in a musical household. I was so very into theater and performing for so long that I think it was really quite natural that I broke into music for my self. I have been working with Galaxy Of Tar for a couple of years now, but I'm actually very excited to be working on a new solo project soon!
Modeling was kind of introduced to me by my good friend and talented makeup artist Hiyiyatun Muqaribu. I became a muse of hers and then i decided to start modeling. I really began my career when I was about 19 years old in NYC modeling.
@FrezhMagazine: What are some of your latest projects?
@NaimaMora: Well I'm super excited about my new solo work as a vocalist! Its going to be somewhat of a departure from rock. I've been writing a lot and working on some really music. Its soooo exciting! Beside that I have been doing a lot of work modeling! I just got back from Guatemala where I shot the cover for LOOK Magazine! WooHoo! Another cover down! I also shot the cover of SU Magazine this past week in Portland and will be shooting the cover of WALK Magazine in Michigan this coming weekend. Thats three magazine covers in a year! Woo Hoo!Out side of that I did a TEDx talk where i was fortunate to be able to share my experience of visiting Nelson Mandela's prison cell in South Africa. He was such an inspiring person and I am glad I was able to pay him a small homage on such a profound platform before he passed.I am also re-releasing my first book MODEL BEHAVIOR this month on Amazon! I hope to have it out within the week. …. so a lot going on!
@FrezhMagazine: Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
@NaimaMora: WOW !!! I'd actually like to work on a clothing line soon. Tour the world as a musician and inspire millions of people! I try not to think that far down the line… usually I just envision what big thing I want to accomplish and go after it. Then when I achieve that success I think of bigger ones!
@FrezhMagazine: What's your top 5 favorite clothing brands?
@NaimaMora: Hahaha! Thats a hard one… well I have always loved McQueen and their house continues to create amazing things! Gareth Pugh is another genius! Balmain is incredible! Alon Livne is a new favorite as well. And I actually shop a lot at Forever 21! HAhaha!
@FrezhMagazine: ahh see you know your fashion ! niceee so What's your favorite Designer high heel?
@NaimaMora:Believe it or not… can't say that I have one favorite heel designer…
@FrezhMagazine: What do you look for in Men?
@NaimaMora: Honesty and confidence! I always try to achieve personal success, its what fulfills myself and my life. With success though, others become insecure. Its really becoming very tiring how insecure men can be around me and how it will lead them to do mean and stupid things.
@FrezhMagazine: For all the fellas out there, Are you single?
@FrezhMagazine: If there's any thing you could say to fans you have what would it be?
A lot of people ask me that… I would say listen closely to your heart. Be patient with her and kind to your heart. Follow your heart, because it doesn't lie. And work like hell to make her dreams come true! Success is made, not given.
@FrezhMagazine: And Lastly who has the best online magazine in the world lol?
@NaimaMora: Tribe Called Frezh!
