My name is Courtney Noel Cates, I was born and raised in Pensacola, Florida. I am currently living in Atlanta, Georgia with my family. I have 4 sisters and 1 brother. If I had to describe myself in one word it would probably be "Joyful". Everything I do and everything I say.. well most of the time is to bring joy to people faces. Making people smile is something I learned from my mom and dad. My mom is my rock with out her I would be nothing. My dad is the big dreamer in the family, I definatley get that trait from him, My dream my whole life has been to become a model. You know how majority of kids hated taking family photos, well... not me. I adored it. Its just something that takes over me when I'm infront of a camera, hard to explain. I take what I do seriously and I love making people proud so failure is not in my vocabulary. I want to inspire young girls to love themselves and to be comfortable in their own skin. I want to prove that you don't have to be rail thin and 6ft tall to be a model, but most importantly I want to be a positive role model for my little sister. I want her to look up to me and be proud to say that I'm her sister. Everyone needs a role model in their life. I will stop at nothing to achieve what I want most in life and that is to make myself a name in the modeling world.
