About MeIntriguing, Edgy, Intelligent, Driven, Charismatic, and Radiant; all of which describes this country bumpkin.
Erica Slaughter was born in St. Louis, Missouri but raised in Blytheville, Arkansas, where either your academically inclined or socially declined. This fueled the fire for her wanting to be the first in the Slaughter family to graduate high school. She carried out the goal with a 3.5gpa in St. Louis, MO, where fashion seemed to be a major topic that sparked her interest. She began to tune in to the fashion and entertainment industry at age 12 as an aspiring model without a clue as to how to begin this new found journey.
Interviews with Pro Scouts, John Robert Powers, Barbizon, and the Images Agency began to trigger a sense of insecurity as they told her that she had the look but not the funds, nor the experience to be signed without model schooling. However; an eager and enthusiastic young Erica let no one crush her dreams. She began to study televised fashion shows and beauty pageants, as well as the collected magazine clippings of models and unique poses as a learning guide. She strives to be as great as Tyra Banks, Naomi Campbell, Eva Pigford, Janice Dickinson, and Angelina Jolie. Even till this day she studies America's Next Top Model in order to prepare herself mentally for any challenge that modeling may throw in her direction.
Miss Slaughter began to get into the swing of things at age 19 as she quickly became the face of Hooters of Florissant, MO. Magazine ads, Internet promotional ads, and in-store promotions all began to carry that signature 100 watt smile. She grasped that classy demeanor and girl next door image that many black women have strayed away from and this is what sets her apart from many other models in the St. Louis market. She is also dabbled in promotional model for local artists 3G as well as St. Louis' hot spot The Sugar Lounge. She has competed in numerous swimsuit competitions and through this won the opportunity walk in her first fashion show sponsored by Threaded Bones, an Ed Hardy affiliate.
On this long quest to establish a name for herself Erica never let money be the driving force for her success. The main goal is to be exactly what a model is described as, a trend setting role model who sets herself apart from others by following her dreams and never straying from that path, because she know's that if she turns away too soon she will miss out on the great blessings that are just within arms reach. The young model wishes to continue to influence her peers and forthcoming generations of young ladies in a positive, chic, and self respecting manner as she dedicates this biography to a few young followers who drive her passion: Melody Slaughter, Jasmine Durley, Siela Spidell, and Allahna G..
As we concluded the interview, this statement was made with such fire,"Enthusiasm, Passion,Admiration and a Distinction is what makes a Top Model, and nothing will make you successful in your pursuit like being set apart from the rest! Erica
