We had the good fortune of connecting with Keniya Love and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Keniya, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
When it came to starting my own Buisness I was terrified. It was a dream that I had but I knew when it came to my dreams I knew that my future was only in my hands. The process from start to know has been a blessing and a huge eye opener for myself and my family. I knew with dedication and great skills I would be able to leave my 10 year job and be one of the worlds greatest non bias model agencies.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I have been working in the model management since 2012 where I managed successfully model Nayy Seduction. I started this with a dream to help others become the best they can without running into scammers and being part of a sex traffic scram. I then decided to go fully into it when I noticed the war between sizes. I then started Queen Love Models to help push for ever size model. I call ourselves the beginning of every models career. We help them build their portfolios, show them that they are a brand themselves. We order prices materials to help them be the best they can at every auditions. The hardest part for me is seeing people take us for granted or miss use of resources. It takes so much time to pay and build up each model and I must say I love doing it. I’ve learned so much in the process but I know this is just our start.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Little Mamma Hoggies. It’s a great taste of Chicago with a little 90s flare. I love the way the place takes you away from Chattanooga and puts you right in a vacation
