“EmpressAK is an amalgamation of righteousness, sagacity, recklessness, wit and a dash of spice; the perfect dichotomy. In fact, everyone has a bit of EmpressAK (balance) in them, some not cognizant of it, others afraid to truly express it. The aim of this site is to provide a platform where anyone can weigh in on a plethora of topics from cultural, social, personal. These topics are packaged in different forms; thought provoking to humorous. Let’s build, laugh, learn!
Weh di scene? (what’s up?) I’m Alli “Ak” Slater. I was wondering if I should enumerate all of my accomplishments, credentials, birthplace, and talk in the third person but let’s be real, this isn’t a eulogy or cover letter, I’m alive with a job (praise God). Actually, all of those things doesn’t and shouldn’t matter here. Just know I am unapologetically Afro-Caribbean, I love controversial dialogue, a good laugh, and will always say what is on my mind, and of course if you are dying to know more, ask me. I am constantly learning about myself, culture and those around me. Join thee on this journey! ”
Rachel Joy Williams is a beautiful black model. She is from Britain from of Jamaican/Caribbean descent. She was crowned Miss Black Britain in 2006 and went on to compete in the Miss England pageant. Here’s a short interview she did:
Tell us a little bit about yourself. Why modelling and when did you first begin modeling?
Rachael: I never actually wanted to be a model. It was my cousin who entered me into the beauty pageant.
At that point in my life I had very low self-esteem and [lacked] confidence (due to being bullied in school); I was so shocked I won but to my family, this was just the beginning.
you could meet anyone in the world dead or alive who would it be and what would say to them?
Rachael: I would love to meet Cleopatra and ask her if she really did bathe in milk and honey daily!
How do you prepare for a modeling shoot?
Rachael: It really depends on the shoot. But I’ll always wash and prep my hair, fully wax, eat clean a few days before just so I’m not bloated and to prevent any spots from appearing on my face.
Has your current experience as a model of color been mostly positive or negative?
Overall my main experience as a model has been positive, I’m my own boss, I decide on all the work I do, I get to travel nearly every month, all the jobs are different, I’m always meeting new people, there is no routine and sometimes, I get to keep the clothes!
On occasions I do experience negativity from clients, agencies and the even general public in regards to my weight, my complexion, my attitude, my style e.t.c but I don’t let any of that bother me as I know where I am going and I do not need to entertain that along the way.
Have you found that there has been an increase of other models of color since you started, or does the modeling industry still have a long way to go in recruiting models of color?
When I started out, what attracted me to the industry was that there was quite a few models of color that actually working within the industry despite all the negativity surrounding it.
