Channel 4 News in Newport Beach

Maybe Channel 4 News didn’t come to cover Tiana this time, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see them feature this super talented girl in the near future! Tiana is very ambitious, and an amazing dancer, as well as a super sweet girl and obviously stunning!! We had a blast shooting with her, and of course had to ask some questions….

Kind, Dedicated, Spontaneous, Natural, and Free

We heard  you love dogs?

Do you compete with a team or individually?
I compete both team and solo.

What do you love about the sport, and at what age did you start?  
I started dance and gymnastics at the age of 3.  I love to’s an expression of myself.  You can release any emotion you are going through when you dance…sad, happy, torn, thankful…you can simply dance the emotions you are feeling and afterwards you feel amazing and free.

My ultimate goal is to be a professional dancer in the industry.  I love to model as well and dream to be a fashion model too.

How did you start your modeling career and what age were you?  
I started modeling at 9 years old.  I was chosen as a cover model for a dance competition program and ever since then my modeling career has just taken off.  I’m loving every minute
of it and all the experiences and meeting new friends.

Do you remember your very first job, and can you tell us about it?
My first job was with Just Dance Invitational.  It was so much fun!  I met new friends that have become good friends of mine and we still end up at the same photo shoots.

What do you love about modeling and what are some of your best modeling jobs? 
I love meeting new people and making new friends.  I think the best part of modeling is the people that come into your life.  I’ve made such good friends and met some amazing and powerful role models, and professionals in the industry.  I’ve made friends from all over the United States and we keep in contact with each other.  It makes the experience of a photo shoot seem like you’re really just going to meet friends and have some fun.

You worked for Chance Loves Swim when you were 1 of 4 girls who won our modeling contest. We did the shoot in February at Balboa Peninsula in Newport Beach. It was freezing that day and very windy, yet you were a trooper and worked it like a professional. 
Have you ever been that cold before during a shoot?  
That was definitely a cold and windy day!  I think that’s probably the coldest I’ve been at a photo short so far.

How did you like working with the other girls?   
I LOVED the other girls!  We had a blast together and I would love to do it all over again, even with it being just as cold and windy.

What do you like about Chance Loves Swimwear?
What I love about Chance is that the swimwear is made for young girls that want to wear fun and fashionable swimsuits.  The suits are made with the highest quality and every single time I’m wearing a Chance swimsuit I receive so many compliments.

Which bikinis do you have?
I have the Mexican Fiesta, Tropical Bay, Coastal Paradise, Zig Zag, and Driftwood.
