Henny: It’s a pleasure have you here, Welcome!
Jazmine Monroe: Thank you. Pleasure is all mine.
Henny: For starters; when did you find inspiration in pursuing a modeling career?
Jazmine Monroe: I found inspiration in pursuing a modeling career at the age of 25. Ive always loved modeling ever since i had my first photo taken as a small child, but actually pursuing a career in it did not take place til i turned 25.
Henny: What is your nationality and where are from?
Jazmine Monroe: I am Puerto Rican American. My bloodline is from Puerto Rico, where both my parents are from but i was born and raised in Upstate, New York.

Henny: With all the shoots you’ve done so far, which ones have been your most memorable?
Jazmine Monroe: My most memorable shoots are definitely the ones Ive done with 504 Dymes Magazine. Hands down.
Henny: A question I tend to ask models/vixens is, in this forever evolving business, new faces emerge by the minute. What separates “Jazmine Monroe” from your peers?
Jazmine Monroe: In this business, many would argue that there really isn’t anything that truly separates one model from the next. Its about who notices you, how many people you know, who you know and what you are willing to do. For me, I would say what separates me from the pack is that I genuinely model for the love of it. I will never render my freedom of artistic/ creative expression to anyone and I will not allow anyone to steer my career. I dont “do it for the gram”. If I am not doing something I love and am comfortable with, I will not do it all. I wont give in to the pressures that most models allow themselves to fall under. And I believe that is what separates me from the rest.
Henny: Overall, what has been your opinion of the Modeling industry?
Jazmine Monroe: Overall, my opinion of the modeling industry is that if you are a strong, secure and confident model, the skys the limit for you. Its an expansive career with so many different types of opportunities for you if you are consistent. However, this industry can also prey on the weak and vulnerable. It can make you feel less than, and its important to have a strong backbone going into this field.
Henny: What are some of your long term goals as you continue to progress in your career?
Jazmine Monroe: Long term goals are to be recognized as a prominent curvy model. I strive to be a recognizable full figured model who promotes body confidence for women of all ages.
Henny: What other interest do you have besides modeling?
Jazmine Monroe: I am also a barber and hair stylist, so that is another interest of mine.
