We had the good fortune of connecting with Ciara Ross and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Ciara, is your business focused on helping the community? If so, how?
Yes!  Tenacitymodels is A Tenacious sorority; We collectively specialize in Sowing Seeds of Knowledge & life skills into younger generations through mentorship and Fashion. Young people need direction, guidance and positive examples. Every social engagement has an etiquette to learn and our passion is to show you how to incorporate grace into your everyday interactions. Virtuous, Intellectual, Eloquent, Women’s Development; Caters to ages 13years and up Our Service includes Life & Social Skills training, Fashion Runway Techniques, Appropriate age Dining Etiquette, Domestic/ International Travel Etiquette, Sisterhood & Mentorship workshops and Entrepreneurship development. Over the years mentorship and proper life skills in many professions has become obsolete the illusion of social media has depicted a different message, however we continue to implement the importance of self development and quality relationships which therefore improves community relationships.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
The entertainment business is hard I’ve had the opportunity to be featured in Magazines on Billboards and Television.  My mission is for every young lady to have self confidence enough to enjoy her life without regret. Becoming a model advocate has become a great passion for me & creating Tenacitymodels because there’s lots of fraudulent folks out there so assisting & protecting young ladies is highly important. I would like the world to know mentorship is not deceased and people still do care. Young ladies can come to any Tenacitymodel mentor and know she has a safe haven to discuss her uncertainties and have the ability to connect her to other young ladies who want more out of life. Her past doesn’t define her future. As my journey advanced as a Fashion Model, not easy by far I kept focused. I began to notice the lack of fashion model etiquette and limited mentorship opportunities available. These ladies have no place to go to become properly trained or cared for. I wanted to be the person to help the younger people behind me . Some of our participates have walked for fashion events in NYC or have gained educational life skills to progress as a upstanding young lady in this ever-changing society.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
A Outing in Texas I’ve found a tree top camping facility, as for adventure the Water -loo that’s fun, there’s midtown area for social life. If they’re into water sports and zip lining. Perhaps horse back riding on the beach. As far as food I haven’t found a must visit place as of yet I have a weird palette. I’d also invited my friend to attend Tenacitymodel workshop and/or fashion show.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I’d like to thank every person who has believed in our journey thus far; Everyone who has inquired every young lady who has taken advantage of our workshops. Every sponsor donation and volunteer without their support and recognizing the need to sow into younger generations is imperative Tenacitymodels would still be just a thought.
