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

Hi Egypt, what’s the most important lesson your business/career has taught you?
I’d have to say the biggest lesson would have to be….Have absolutely no expectations! Over the years I’ve learned that what I’d do for someone they probably have no intentions on doing the same for me. Sometimes we think we’re being great friends by supporting our friends businesses with a simple repost or actually purchasing something. However, when it comes to supporting you or your business, it gets really quiet and no one is supporting you as you did them. I had to learn this lesson the hard way and honestly a lesson I’m glad I learned when I did.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?

My first love is modeling!  As a child I always had an itch to stand out, whether it was the hundreds of rainbow beads on my braids or the heels I wore with socks. I knew this personality needed to shine but physically I did not (and still do not) fit the mold for a traditional model. Despite its challenges, modeling keeps me busy along with networking to find the teams who are interested in shooting the models that don’t “fit the mold”.

Fortunately, today things have changed drastically in the modeling industry. You can be plus size, short or even a different sex than which you were born. I find so much peace in front of a camera because modeling for me is a judgment free zone. No one matters but myself and that camera. No, I don’t always love the images but they give me the opportunity to learn new things about myself as well as allow me to perfect my craft.

I want all of the inspiring models or influencers to take a risk and keep pushing! You will literally miss every shot you don’t take so take them ALL!!!! Had I let the stereotypes of a “super model’ stop me there’d be no Egypt Cario.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?

I’d like to show an abundance of love to my partner and manager Cris. She is literally a life saver when it comes to this business stuff, without her I don’t think id be as far a long in my career as I am without her. A true Aries (The Goat)
