Get To Know Alana Henry
MY CREATIVE OUTLET IS…
well the typical thing to say would be something like drawing but I can’t draw! But I really enjoy doing hair. (The reason why I’m always changing up my hairstyle). I get creative when I do things like weaves, braids, wig making, dying hair and cutting hair. That’s my thing I guess.
THE BEST ADVICE I HAVE EVER RECEIVED…
Was from my mum and she said “Mandy you came into this world alone and you will leave alone” pretty obvious, but she said it mainly to remind me to always be independent!, in life although you may have family, friends ect you should always remember that you are an individual so learn to love yourself for you and never compare. Also just the simple fact that if you really want something in life it’s your responsibility find a way to fight for it yourself. I know its a weird one to say but it holds a bit of meaning to me.
I KEEP IN SHAPE BY…
Eating a lot of junk food.. lol only joking but I don’t really do much to stay fit which is very bad! I just don’t have the time I guess and I also have that curse of eating everything and staying stick thin like a match stick.. 😦 Although I do walk everywhere so I guess that keeps me in shape kind of. Need to work on working out more. I would love to join a yoga class.
MY DE-STRESS TRICK IS…
Usually when I’m stressed I like to call to someone close to me for example my mum, my sister or boyfriend. sometimes just to ask for advice or just have a chat and catch up, hearing the voice of someone who’s close to really helps me distress and by the time the conversation is over I am a lot less stressed. Or plan 2 have a nap! Sounds silly but this actually helps me relax and distress especially when I’m having a stressful day, I wake up energized and happy.
WHEN I HAVE SOME FREE TIME I …
I like to watch lots and lots of YouTube videos and hair tutorials!! A bit to many to be honest. But some of my favorite people to watch are, @patriciabright! I love her vlogs, and also her main channel is full of makeup and hair tutorials. And also advice and motivational speeches! I also enjoy watching @jamieandniks they are super cute!Aussie couple. And also @thebeautycrush
BEING A MODEL I HAVE LEARN…
To have patience, how to be independent, to be confident, to believe in myself and have faith.
WHO ARE YOUR FAVORITE DESIGNERS?
Hard question! Well I love Dolce Gabbana, Roberto Cavalli, Nasir Mazhar, (it was quite sad I actually got confirmed for one of her shows at lfw and I couldn’t go because I had exams. I was devastated sad face). I also really like Marc Jacobs and obviously others, there are way too many!.
WHAT DO YOU SEE YOURSELF DOING AFTER MODELLING CAREER?
Well my plan was always to get into dentistry, I’ve done a lot of work experience along side different dentists, dental therapists, hygienists as well as studying and Iv found it can be a really interesting and rewarding as a job so I would love to study something like that at university after my modelling career and become qualified in that area.
WHERE IS YOUR FAVORITE PLACE ON EARTH?
Has to be my home country! JAMAICA. Anyone who has been there knows what a beautiful country it is, the sunny weather, white sandy beaches, amazing food, exciting culture! I love it! it’s my home and I can’t wait to go back.
MY GOAL IN LIFE IS???
Build a beautiful, big house on a beach somewhere in Jamaica for my mum and pay all her bills!
