Who’s That Girl? Norva’ Michelle Williams Model

Here’s what Norva had to say in our interview with her! What's your favorite outfit from your own closet? My favorite outfit in my closet would be a simple pair of blue jeans with a very cute heel. You will always find me in heels. Are there any models which inspire you and why? Hmm, models that inspire me? I really don't see anyone who I can relate to. That's why I'm trying to set a new trend. How has modeling changed other aspects of your life? By making me more confident and secure in the skin I'm in. More of a go-getter! Feeling I can do anything. What’s your favorite fashion experience from the past? My favorite experience from the past would be getting off the runway and a young girl approached me and told me "I give her motivation and hope to want to do more". That's why I got in the industry in the first place.

What are your goals as a model? How do you see yourself progress in this field? My goal as a model is to take it to all levels. I want to continue to inspire and motivate woman all over the world to live your dream no matter what shell you come in. Attire complements people’s personality. Tell us how attire should differ depending upon the place you are visiting? I feel attire should always express your personality. I love color. I also feel you should dress for whatever an event calls for. Always look your best and be prepared to turn it up a notch if necessary. What are your top 5 secret local shopping spots? My top 5 secret local shopping spots are Torrid, Lane Bryant, Mode Plus, Macy's and A Clothes Mind ;-) Where can readers find out more about you? Readers can find me on Facebook under Norva’ Michelle. There you will find photos and other great sites to see my work. Words I live by spread a smile and a kind word. Lots of love…
