Sacramento beauty is semifinalist in Maxim’s Hometown Hotties contest
For those who think that beauty doesn’t come with brains, you are in for a treat.
Kyndal Kyaire, currently in the top 100 for Maxim’s Hometown Hotties contest, is not only confident in herself but also ambitious and successful.
She attended Merryhill until the fourth grade, then moved to Roseville, where she finished middle school and graduated from Woodcreek High School.
Kyaire was always focused on what she wanted and settled for nothing but the best.
While in school, Kyaire had two passions: dancing and modeling. But her schooling didn’t allow for a lot of downtime, and she wasn’t able to keep up with the modeling as much as she wanted to.
"I went to college immediately after high school," explains Kyaire. "I stayed in until I graduated. I took full loads every semester."
Kyaire, who received two bachelor’s degrees in entrepreneurship and marketing in May from CSU Sacramento, always knew what she wanted to do as a career.
"I picked entrepreneurship because both my parents are entrepreneurs and they’ve owned so many businesses throughout my life, explained Kyaire. "I kind of have a knack for it."
As far as marketing goes, "It’s pretty easy for me. I could do both majors and they could both be beneficial to me."
Since graduating, Kyaire has been a hard worker, taking on two jobs, balancing a relationship and finally getting back into modeling.
"I’ve been modeling since I was 15 and it’s something I really enjoy doing," explains Kyaire. "I’ve never had the opportunity to put my all into it because I’ve always been in school since I started it. I figured it would a really good way to get my foot in the door, by entering into the Maxim contest."
There are three stages to the Maxim Hometown Hotties contest: the top 1,000, top 100 and top 10.
This is Kyaire’s second year as a contestant, and although she is a semifinalist this year, that wasn’t the case last year.
She explained that while she has been modeling since she was 15, she went about entering last year the wrong way.
"It wasn’t the way I wanted to represent myself," explains Kyaire. "I looked at Maxim as everybody is sexy, and that is how I thought I should submit my pictures. Sexier, even though they aren’t my best pictures."
After realizing that being herself is the best route to go, it turned out that she made a good decision — she’s in the top 100.
Along with her natural talent and determination to be a model, Kyaire has a great supportive unit backing her.
One of her supporters is Jermaine Vercher, her boyfriend of two years. He is 100 percent supportive of Kyaire’s drive to be a model.
"He comes to photo shoots with me and helps out when he can," explains Kyaire. She continued on to explain it was Vercher who has reached out to several media outlets, including her recent segment on ‘Good Day Sacramento.’"
Along with her boyfriend, Kyaire’s parents are also on her side, supporting her in whatever makes her happy.
Since Kyaire has been modeling for some time now, and has now entered into the Maxim contest for the second year, she offers great advice to those thinking about modeling or entering a modeling contest.
"I would say go out and be confident. It’s a huge industry and I cannot tell you how many time I’ve been rejected," explains Kyaire. "If you’re confident, just know rejection is always going to come."
And advice pertaining to the Maxim contest?
"If you go on any castings and you try to pretend your somebody else or do it anytime, they are going to see right through you," explains Kyaire.
Planning to go all the way in this Maxim contest, she knows that modeling will not always be there, and has other goals in her future.
"As far as long term goals, I see myself owning at least one business in five years. Ultimately I’m not thinking I’m going to be some big supermodel but you know, I’ll definitely have the drive to take myself places, and that’s what I’ll do."
With a down-to-earth personality, brains and the determination to do whatever she puts her mind to, Kyaire is a great candidate for the Maxim Hometown Hotties Contest.
