Pulse Model Rac­quel Smith, THE FACE of the Caribbean in Naomi Camp­bell’s new re­al­ity show.

SHE Carribean Magazine - - FASHION NOTEBOOK -

SHE Caribbean caught up with Jamaican model Rac­quel Smith for a quick chat re her ex­pe­ri­ence on the show to date. Why did you en­ter THE FACE? R.S.- I thought it would be a good place to en­hance my ca­reer in­ter­na­tion­ally and be seen by a lot more po­ten­tial clients in the U.K. and Europe. I also re­ally fancy my chances of win­ning. I feel proud to be a home grown Jamaican model rep­re­sent­ing my coun­try. De­scribe the se­lec­tion process? R.S.- There were around 10,000 en­trants from all across Europe. We had three stages of au­di­tions and then 50 girls were se­lected. This num­ber was nar­rowed to 24 for the fi­nal group be­fore the real com­pe­ti­tion be­gan. We had a se­ries of chal­lenges and 12 of us were fi­nally se­lected to be on the men­tors’ teams. There is Team Caro­line Win­berg, Team Erin O’Con­nor and I am apart of Team Naomi Camp­bell. How do you feel about be­ing on Team Naomi? R.S.- I felt over­whelmed. I have al­ways wanted to meet Naomi. Get­ting the chance to be men­tored by her is spe­cial. How do you see your chances of win­ning? R.S.- Very good. I don’t see any of the other girls as a threat. We are all on the same level com­pet­i­tively and there­fore my chances are just as good as theirs. I won sec­ond place in the Pulse Model re­al­ity TV se­ries when I be­gan mod­el­ing. I have a good ad­van­tage from be­ing in that com­pe­ti­tion and this time I feel I can go all the way!
