Today we’d like to introduce you to Codie Green.
Codie, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
As a little girl, I always wanted to be a model! I watched ANTM religiously and tried to walk and talk like the models on the show. Growing up my family was super poor, but we have enough to make it. So there really wasn’t any extra money for modeling or pageants. I also grow up Pentecostal, so modeling was definitely out of the picture. But I always loved being in front of the camera and so after my divorce, God present me with the opportunity to start modeling. That was going on two in half years ago! Today I am a published model! I was 1st published in Shube Magazine #18 vol. 5. I am now the brand ambassador and face of Tisha’s Boutique. I have walked in a numerous of shows this pasted year and have several coming up! I am now trying to get my own business up and running. As well as getting my face and name out there. I am also a mother of two beautiful children, a 7 year old little boy and a 3 year old little girl, so every day I get up I push for them! Not to provide for day or tomorrow, but for them and my grandchildren and great-grandchildren and so on! I want to provide generational wealth! I don’t want them to have to work a normal 9 – 5 job! I want them to be working in a company I created! That will survive years & years after I am gone!
Can you give our readers some background on your art?
Although some don’t know, I am considered to be a short model, because I am 5’3! And because of that, it can be harder to book jobs! I want people to understand that in the world we live in today anyone can be a model! It doesn’t matter about how tall you are, or what kind of shape you have! Or even if the Industry doesn’t feel like you have the face to be considered a model! Everyone has the potential to be whatever they put their minds too! I want people to feel empowered and beautiful when they look at my photos or any message I put out!
Artists rarely, if ever pursue art for the money. Nonetheless, we all have bills and responsibilities, and many aspiring artists are discouraged from pursuing art due to financial reasons. Any advice or thoughts you’d like to share with prospective artists?
Financial it can be hard, but you have to pick and choose wisely on what is important and what’s not! So I would say budgeting is your best friend! That’s how I make things happen!
