Raya Reaves “Miss Raya” – January Featured Model

Posted by Mr. Put On on January 15, 2010

What? Of course I know it’s mid-January. Oh you thought I forgot…. Nope! Here she is, January’s Grade A Model of the Month: Raya Reaves. Hailing from Austin, Texas, Raya’s “girl next door” look is just what we need here at Grade A. Just as the phrase would suggest, there’s a lot more to this light eyed southern chick with a gorgeous smile. She’s definitely Grade A Material. For this month, with major help from the Grade A Model Coordinator, we made some minor updates to the questions we ask our models.

Being considered for model of the month means we look at a lot more than just your port. Many talented models who have graced our inbox with photos have been turned away because we didn’t think they’re lifestyle was “Grade A”. The things you do to perfect your craft, and go beyond the talent you were given are the things that we look for. So instead of me trying to tell you why they’re Grade A, they can tell you for themselves. As usual, there’s plenty of photos for your viewing pleasures. Make sure to hit her up on Model Mayhem, Twitter, Myspace, or on her wonderful site (full port). Now go check out Miss Raya…

What do you consider ‘Grade A’? To me, “Grade A” is not just beauty on the outside, but also on the inside.  Kindness with a great personality is a must for being conisidered “Grade A”.  When one carries themselves with poise and confidence, they are definitely “Grade A” material.

What makes you ‘Grade A’ material? I would consider myself “Grade A” material because of my determination.  I believe that I can accomplish anything I put my mind to.  I have taken all the knowledge I’ve acquired through college and entertainment experiences and used it positively to make things happen for myself.  I’m grateful for all that I have been blessed with and I’m a soon to be college graduate at the age of 21!
