We had the good fortune of connecting with Laila T and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Laila, do you have a favorite quote or affirmation?
Whatever is for me, WILL be for me. It means to stay in my own lane and not worry about anything or anybody else and what they are doing. Helps to remain humble and focused on myself, and not others.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
An ex-boyfriend introduced me to the modeling industry as a matter of fact. Being a professional published model does have its pros and cons. You mainly have to hope that your T.E.A.M purely want what’s best for you and your career. You must always remain hungry & humble!! You will definitely know when it is YOUR season, and when you do SHINE brighter than you ever have before!!!

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.
It is a MUST for me to see my sister rather we meet up to eat somewhere or spend time together at the hotel I am staying at. When I am in the city, I like to hit up William’s Chicken and Grandy’s. I love some good country home-style fried chicken with fresh fries, corn and rolls. Please don’t forget the pepper to add that little extra seasoning to the whole meal and then that delicious peach cobbler (mostly peaches) for dessert!!!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My Mama. My backbone, my love & my everything.
