OTM: Tell us a little about yourself. What do you do when you’re not modeling?
Nakyra: You know, I love music. I would even go so far to call myself a music enthusiast. I write and love to sing and develop my lyricism. I think music has the power to move through your entire body and make you feel happy or sad, or like you’re not alone. Music saved my life.
OTM: Tell us something we wouldn’t know about you.
Nakyra: I am the actual epitome of a mut. I am mixed with Filipino, Egyptian, German, Polish, and little bit of sugar, spice, and everything nice.
OTM: Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Nakyra: In all honesty, what I want to achieve is to become a great musician and to make people feel my song, to feel my lyrics and to inspire people to stay true to who they are by being my truest self and putting that out there with no regrets. I want to inspire kindness and passion, love. But, we’ll see where this road called life leads.
OTM: If you could give advice to an up and coming model what would you tell them?
Nakyra: I would say, don’t ever do anything that makes you uncomfortable, but don’t be afraid to take a few steps out of your comfort zone. You never know how things may turn out, and fashion loves to push boundaries of all kinds.
OTM: What’s one word to describe yourself?
Nakyra: Wild. But in the best way (smiles).
