Hello world,, I am Mz. Vegas due to my West coast flavor but strong Cali roots. Becoming a model at the age of 20 was the best thing for me. It kept me motivated and my confidence sky high. I always loved being in front of the camera so on and off the camera, I shined bright like a diamond. Growing up in a split family was very rough. Being the middle child there was not a lot of love or attention.
Leaving home at an early age set me on fire. I had to grow quick and learn how to become a woman that I could look up to. The road alone and the fight to live created a star. I am me; A "ROSE" built from CONCRETE and a LIGHT ready for ACTION. Follow some of my journey on Instagram @mzvegas4life Thank you Ms. Jerido for believing in me.
Mz. Vegas loves ya!!!

During the Spring of 2015, I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Francis Marion University in Florence, South Carolina. My hobbies consist of the following: painting, drawing, cooking, playing video games, and not to forget…modeling.
My love of modeling was instilled in me during my pre-teens…thanks to my wonderful mother.
During those years, my mom noticed that I had “it”…”it” being that indescribable skill to know how to make something stand out and shine. As I became older, I noticed that I was a natural at knowing how to make an outfit POP! This ability grew through gaining experience while working at clothing stores. For example, I would pick out outfits for customers who would also compliment me on my selection for them. Meanwhile, I was also admired by the same customers for how well I looked in the outfits I wore. I’m proud to say that I’ve modeled for Charlotte Seen's Fashion Week:
