Swedish, Irish, French, Haitian, Portuguese, and Lebanese Freelance Model: Michele Victoria Gonzales knew from day one she wanted to be in the public eye. Known as “Miche”, this fitness-streetwear model is just as strong and beautiful as her blonde, edgy, short hair. Having traveled from New York, Haiti, and Miami she has shot for many urban brands and photographers such as; DGK, Odd Sox, Underground NYC, Laventure X, Leicabeast plus many more.
With over 9 thousand followers on Instagram and embracing her healthy curvy body, it’s not about the number of followers Miche has to become “Instagram Famous”, but it’s about her message and charity she wants to get across to the world.
“It’s not what you do with your Instagram followers but it’s how you influence them”. Miche’s ultimate goal is to go back to Haiti to create her own company. She also wants to provide a charity for the trouble minded women and children who battle with psychological thoughts as well as body dsyphormia. Along with coming up with a charity for students in Haiti, Miche also wants to provide a scholarship fund for them. This is a blessing for students in Haiti to further their education. These goals and dreams are all personal experiences she’s dealt with on her own. As aspiring and confident as she may seem, Miche has struggled with her own demons.
By embracing her beauty and confidence she never wears makeup for her shoots. She believes that the majority of ones’ negativity comes from self-pity. Miche’s personal advice to oneself:
“Smile at yourself in the mirror, whatever you’re worried about that day tell yourself you’ll achieve it. If you believe it you’ll go after it and if you go after it you’ll achieve”.
It was such an honor to photograph Miche and work with this uprising model. If anyone has questions on booking Miche, you can email her at Bookmiche@gmail.com
