You’ve seen her face… You know her name… But how many people can honestly say they have picked at the brain of Sheneka Adams? This girl goes beyond a beautiful face, and I’ve learned that since befriending her & holding conversations with her. This was definitely a fun interview & thank you so much Sheneka for doing it! Check the interview out after the jump…
Lyssa Honey: In 10 words or less, who is Sheneka Adams?
Sheneka Adams: A fun loving, caring person who loves & lives life to the fullest.
Lyssa Honey: What was your childhood & upbringing like? What were your childhood dreams?
Sheneka Adams: My childhood was pretty normal. I was raised in a single parent home with 2 younger siblings and I was always the outcast because of the way I looked and acted. My dream as a child was to be a forensic scientist but that changed when I became old enough to learn about the entertainment world.
Lyssa Honey: What was your big break into the entertainment industry?
Sheneka Adams: When I appeared in Smooth Magazine I would say.
Lyssa Honey: What was your most memorable moment being in the entertainment industry? (Positive or negative) – Being on the cover of the LA Times newspaper as a best dressed celeb for the BET Hip Hop Awards over everyone that was there, that blew me away completely.
Lyssa Honey: You have a wonderful resume for such a young age, can you share with us some of your biggest ventures?
Sheneka Adams: Right now I’m working on my own Collection, S.Adams Collection, I can’t spill the beans on what it is exactly but I am so happy and proud of accomplishing this.
Lyssa Honey: What is something that you want to do, or conquer, that you haven’t yet?
Sheneka Adams: I wanna go to space. That’s my lifetime goal!
Lyssa Honey: I’ve noticed on instagram & twitter that you tag a lot of your images with “#SAdamsCollection”, can you tell us what’s that all about?
Sheneka Adams: Not right now lol!
Lyssa Honey: There is a stereotype this day & age for “urban models” & “video vixens” that isn’t always the nicest of things, how do you feel that you’ve overcame that stereotype?
Sheneka Adams: I mean I have to a certain degree but people are going to think whatever anyway and honestly who cares.
Lyssa Honey: If you could change one thing about your personal appearance, what would it be & why? What do you feel is your best trait of your personal appearance?
Nothing I like the way God made me. My best trait would be my freckles.
Lyssa Honey: How is Sheneka the friend, family member, wife different from Sheneka the model?
Sheneka Adams: No different, I am the same person at all times, that’s how I stay true to myself, although when I have to perform I turn into Gigi, my better half.
Lyssa Honey: Your boyfriend Jacob York is also your manager, how do you feel you benefit from having him as both titles? I ask because you know a lot of people say “don’t mix business with pleasure” but you seem to be doing great doing so!
Sheneka Adams: Because I have access to him 24/7-365 days a year. It can get a little rocky but that’s with every relationship whether it be business or personal but for the most part he has made everything I wanted to accomplish happen for me and I thank him for that.
Lyssa Honey: You are very known for your fashion sense, tell us what you feel is the perfect every day outfit for Fall 2012. What is the perfect outfit to wear to a club for Fall 2012? (Be as specific or as general as you want to be)
Sheneka Adams: The perfect everyday outfit for me would me, a nice pair of skinny jeans, a tank top (any color) nice leather crop jacket, nice hobo bag, some nice boots and accessories. Club fit would be a nice long sleeved knee high dress with a fur jacket, closed toe pumps and a cute clutch.
Lyssa Honey: Would you ever consider breaking out into the fashion world? If so, what would you design?
Sheneka Adams: I could see that and if I did I would design clothes and shoes.
Lyssa Honey: If you could be anyone for 24 hours (alive or dead) who would it be? Why? What would you do? Sheneka Adams: Beyonce, I’m just in love with her. I don’t know what I would do, probably just enjoy being her.
Lyssa Honey: If you could have one magical power, what would it be? Why?
Sheneka Adams: The power to be invisible so I can see and hear what people REALLY think about me.
Lyssa Honey: If you had Aladdin’s lamp & could make 3 wishes (besides ask for more wishes) what would they be? Sheneka Adams: Free weave for the rest of my life, my family to have an endless amount of money, and world peace.
Lyssa Honey: If you could describe your life in one quote (an original quote or someone else’s quote) what would it be?
Sheneka Adams: “You know my name, not my story.”
Lyssa Honey: If you could live your life as a fairytale, story, or movie – which would it be? Who would be what character? (for example say you say The Little Mermaid you could say you’re Arielle, Jacob is Prince Eric, etc) Sheneka Adams: Probably cinderella because her story is similar to mines.
Lyssa Honey: If someone was to make a movie about your life, who would you want to play the role of you? Why? Sheneka Adams: I would play the role myself because I don’t think anyone could do it better than I could.
Lyssa Honey: Anything else you would like to share with us?
