Rylie Yvette, age 16. Rylie started modeling a little over a year ago and began to realize how much she loves being in front of the camera. She was going through some tough times and It really allowed her to open up and regain confidence in herself. She’s very grateful to have had the opportunity to walk in NYFW February & September 2019 for some amazing designers. It was the most amazing experience of her life and hopes to continue with it!
When she’s not modeling she’s enjoying school. Math is her favorite subject but she is also taking classes to become a nurse while in high school. In her free time she volunteers as a certified cheerleading coach for a youth program. She enjoys time with her family and wouldn’t be where she is without the love and support they give her daily.
She hopes she’s able to inspire others to reach for the stars, because dreams do come true.
