Diamond LaTia has been in the industry for a long time, even as a baby. Now at 27 she’s ready to take on larger than life roles. Born and raised in Atlanta, this unicorn is showing looks can be deceiving.
How does it feel to be selected as one of the Abners Angels?
I feel very honored. This is actually my first interview as a full time model, so thank you for recognizing me and my talents.
What made you become a model?
My mother had me in pageants and auditions since I was a little girl. After life hit, I kind of gave up on my dream believing it was over. However, with a little soul searching and a talk with God, I knew modeling and acting is what I’m suppose to do.
What are some of the difficulties of the modeling business?
Difficulties I’ve faced is staying in my lane. I’m not a video vixen, I don’t twerk on camera. Yet those roles pop up the most, especially in Atlanta. It’s easy to do what’s popular, but it’s more rewarding to do what’s specific to you.
What is your favorite physical attribute about yourself?
My favorite physical attribute are my lips and legs. My legs make me look taller, which is a benefit. Since I’m only 5’3 and on camera I look a lot taller, which can put me in runways. I like my lips, because their natural and people are paying thousands to get what I already have.
What are some of the perks working as a model?
Some perks are definitely meeting people. I’ve met so many celebrities and people in my same business. So you get to collab and work together, which broadens your networking circle.
When it comes to modeling, what is something we would be surprised to learn?
I model with no shoes, lol. I’m from the south, maybe a little country. I love not wearing shoes. If you look at majority of my photos, I don’t have on shoes.
What’s your idea of a romantic evening?
My idea of a romantic evening is really just chillin in a nice place overlooking the city with flowers and candles. We can just let our minds go in creativity or thoughts.
What is that one quality in a guy which annoys you the most?
I hate large egos! Please be humble.
Have you ever been in love or heartbroken?
Yes I’ve had both happen to me too many times before. I’m single and enjoying it.
What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
Craziest thing I ever done was giving up on my dream. Believing corporate was the way to go, I shot myself in the foot. Never give up on your dreams!
If you could change something about yourself, what would it be?
I would get celebrity teeth. I want my mouth done so bad, lol.
