First of all, let me tell you how crazy excited I am to be here!
I'm Oneka, a model born and raised in Chicago. My number one goal is to inspire, while achieving my own desires. I'm ready to make history, & be the first Belizean model on the Cover of Maxim Magazine.
Walking down the streets in large cities like Chicago, it's common to see men, women and sometimes children laying beside buildings and sidewalks. In May, tragedy stuck in Chicago when a young man doused a 75 year old homeless man with a flammable liquid & set him on fire while he slept on the sidewalk. I believe housing should be a human right in society.
If I am chosen to be Maxim Cover Girl I will invest partially of the money to start a new non-profit organization for the homeless called, "Love Thy Neighbor." In addition, I'll donate to incredible charities in Chicago like, "Chicago Coalition for the Homeless."Chicago Coalition for the Homeless has a clear mission to prevent and end homelessness.
I would love to share my story and tell you a little about myself. My passion for modeling blossomed when I decided to audition & join a modeling troupe called PPMT, "Picture Perfect modeling troupe."Since then, I decided to move to Chicago to pursue my dreams of becoming a professional model. I earned my associates and I studied business at the University of Illinois at Chicago. When my mother was diagnosed with heart disease, cancer and sacrodosis I took some time off from UIC. I plan to finish my last year in the Spring.
I am happy to share some of my modeling, dance and acting experience with you.I am so elated because I just signed with an incredible team, MMG in New York. In August 2021, I was booked as a dance performer for Kanye West Donda's listening party at Soldier Field. I was published in Style Cruze Magazine Vol 157 "News stand edition," and Pump Magazine. I have started looking into acting classes as well because I enjoyed being a featured extra for the TV series such as; Empire (season 2,3,&5), Chicago Fire, APB, Force (season 1), and the movie Chiraq. Most importantly, I live create breathtaking photographs and inspire others.
