About Me




Hello All!!!!
    My name is Karen Rampersad.  I'm sure like most of you on the Mayhem, modeling was a childhood dream.  I first wanted to become a model after my Mom put me into a pageant at the ripe age of 12.  That's when I won an award for "Most Likely To Become A Model." My Indian and African American mixed hertiage would often have people approach me wondering what I was and if I modeled.  So, I decided. To take a stab at it.... TRIED...... EVERYTHING!!! I was in Model Search America, several pageants, John Casablancas, and much more... but no success came of it.  I even went to several agencies, but I was either too black, too tall, not skinny enough... you name it, they said it.  I heard "NO" so many times that I started to believe that I would never fufill my dream.... never become a model.  There were so many times when I just wanted to give up... but something in me just wouldn't let me. 
      While looking through an Ebony Magazine, I saw a casting call to be an Ebony Fashion Fair Model.  Before I even applied, I just knew I wasn't going to get it.  Like I said, I heard "No" so many times, and that's all I knew....but I applied anyways.  To my great surprise, they called me to come to Chicago for an audition.  Out of the thousands of young ladies that sent in their application, I was one of the lucky individuals to be granted the wonderful opportunity of becoming an Ebony Fashion Fair Model.  I have modeled for Ebony for about a year and a half and absolutely loved the experience!!!! I was able to tour the Nation and even leave the country to model high fashion designer clothing full time. 
    With the experience and knowledge that I now possess, I plan to be THAT next supermodel.  I am working hard to get my name known and I don't plan on stopping anytime soon.  Lastly, please please please FIGHT FOR YOUR DREAM. The only way you will have no regrets in life, is if you do everything your heart wants you to.  Please feel free to contact me and say hello, I'll try my very best to return the message!

******* NO NUDES*********
I am not interested in doing nude photos.  I am interested mostly in commercial print, high fashion editorial, and runway.

I have joined model mayhem to collaborate with talented Photographers, MUA, hair stylist, designers, and general stylist to build a strong book.

Just wanted to take a second to thank you for being a big part my success for 2009. If this message lands in your box, it is truly meant for you, so don’t think it some type of mistake, you have helped me in some form to reach my goals. I know I may have not returned all of my messages this year but I spent a lot of time training in hopes of becoming a better photographer . Thank God, there were people like you to help me alone the way. Just know as you read this I truly remember how important you were to Kelvinbushan photography and know it will not be forgotten. For the next month or so I will be posting my 2009 people of the Year, I know it’s late but I must give credit where it is do. Who knows you may end up on this list (smile).

Thanks again for doing your part in making the year a success
