"Shereena Delgado 22 years young. Born In Miami raised in Honduras. I am what you call a full blown “Catracha” or some call it “Hondureña”. I Embrace my ethnicity to the best of my ability. Coming to live in the states with my mother after living with my grandma for 10 years of my young life was very different. Not speaking English was one of my biggest obstacles that by the grace of God, I overcame. However, Watching “America’s Next Top Model” faithfully, got me steps closer to my goal (so big shout outs to them). Finally, I conquered it & grew a great ambition for beating the odds. I have now been modeling professionally for about 3/4 years. Like everyone else says “I’ve always wanted to be a model since I was a young girl.” I know it’s redundant but I really did! Those girls had so much confidence, I was like MAN! These girls think like they run the word, I wish that was me!
As I grew older and moved to NY life dealt me a very rough deck of unexpected cards that actually help change my “why”. By “why” I mean my purpose behind doing what I do. Then I finally came with a conclusion, I want to be a model because of my life, the obstacles, the rejection, the loneliness, the struggle, my ups, and my downs. I represent all of those young girls out there; that deal with so much inwardly. I model for not only Gods Glory but for the women/men that don’t feel attractive, the insecure, the parent-less, the broke, the black sheep, the wounded, the ones not knowing who they are and who’s they are, the lost, the broken. I represent them. And I’ve realized that in this journey called life, it’s not about you. To get to the next level your always gonna need a helping hand. Someone will always help you or “put you on” to something better. I stand in the gap for them. So if I WIN, WE WIN. And I mean that, I don’t do this for me anymore, it means way more to me when I’m helping others or motivating others through my actions. “You never know who is watching” like my grandma always said. It’s not about me. I feel like in this industry, you may not book me because I may not have the look your looking for, I may not be the perfect sample size, my hair may not stay as smooth as you would want it too. But one thing I for-sure know is that I have what it takes to be the next Top Model. Not only am I beautiful inside out (humbly saying) but I have the drive & passion to make things happen. I am a firm believer that I will make it some way, some how. I’m not giving up & I can’t give up because if I do I’m letting down a team of people that I have to fight for. "
TAE DESIGNZ has had the pleasure of working with Shereena back in 2016. We shut down the World Trade Center in NYC with our formation shoot that took place in the center of the building. We're so proud of the hard work and dedication that she puts forth within the modeling industry. Below is a couple photos from the shoot we did at the World Trade Center (wearing all white):
