Best way to reach me is on Facebook! So click here
If you'd like to work with me, please send me a message, as I rarely check Tags for people wishing to collab. Shoot me a message! I don't bite! I'm very nice, so don't be scared, haha!
My nickname is Inka Michelle, so sometimes you'll find that name floating about (and on my fanpage), but I also go by Erin, which is what I think I'm going to stick with in the industry [nicknames are fun, but I think I'll keep my real one!
I'm 21, a Chicagoan all my life, a Southsider by birth [Hyde Park/Kenwood], but a Northsider since '01 [Uptown/Lakeview].
Feel free to send me a friend request, or message.
I am of VERY mixed heritage, and I am very proud to be such a mish mash of so many races.
I am: Native American [Cherokee, Choctaw, and Ojibwa/Chippewa], Portuguese, German, Irish, Cameroonian, African American, Belizean, Mexican, East Indian
, and possibly others.
I've been told I look Puerto Rican, Iranian/Persian, Pakistani, Indian, and even Jewish, so, depending on my makeup and any other influences [if it's the summer and I'm a little more brown or if I use bronzer, I've been told I look more Middle Eastern or Hispanic], I can pull off many different cultures.
Currently, I'm in my first year of college, but I plan on going to either Law school, Business school, or going into acting. Perhaps all three. Yeah, I'm ambitious; all the more reason for you to work with me! Right? Right.
A Little More About Me
I love poetry; I write a lot and I was on my high school slam team in Chicago. On top of becoming a politician, I would also like to become a writer and actress.
I also volunteer at the Chicago Canine Rescue [www.chicagocaninerescue.com].
Shooting with me!
If you would like to shoot with me, please feel free to shoot me a message on here. I love collaborating and working on new, strange, and different shoot concepts. So please, if you have an idea and think I'd be perfect for it, message me and we can hash out the details. =]
