Alisha – a Highly ambitious Model



To model or not to model?? That’s the question most young girls keep asking themselves and our answer to them every time is if you got what it takes, go for it!! One model who has what it takes in our eyes is British model Alisha White. Alisha is a 21 year old fashion model, actress & TV personality born, and raised in South London. According to Alisha, “Growing up in one of the toughest area’s in London wasn’t easy and I wanted, and needed a way out from the madness and mayhem. Modelling for me was my way out,” she tells us from her pad in the UK. Alisha started modelling in 2001 at the age of 10 when she was cast in her first TV commercial in the popular children’s TV show Nickelodeon. The show later received an award in America and Alisha got the chance to work with them again, this time in an ad for Nickelodeon. “It was a great experience for me and I learnt so much from it,” says Alisha. Still young and with age on her side, Alisha took a break from modelling to focus on her studies though in 2008, she jumped back into the modelling scene and competed in the Miss Black Britain beauty contest where she finished 4th and won the public vote for Best Public Figure. In 2010, Alisha decided it was time to apply for another competition, and she sent her application in for Britain’s Next Top Model (Cycle 6). This time around, Alisha gave it her all and finished 2nd place and became the 1st black female model to get into the TOP 3 in the series history. So far, Alisha has been able to work with a host of top industry brands including Revlon, Firetrap, The House of Scarlet, SANA.LONDON, Queenies Real Virgin Hair, Black Hair & Beauty, NGT, Sky Atlantic, Eye Castings, Hello Kitty, Paolita, Fred And Ginger, Kiss Me Deadly4e, Harvey Nichols, Swarovski, Whitney Marie, and has been featured in top magazines like Company, Reveal Magazine, Black Hair,  Beauty Magazine, OK Magazine, The Buzz, Pride, Fashion Ezine, The Voice, and South London Press. As with everything she does, Alisha has shown a high level of professionalism and in 2012, Alisha got one of the best calls in her life when she got contacted by Tyra Banks to appear in America’s Next Top Model ‘The British Invasion (Cycle 18). “I got selected and invited over to Los Angeles by Supermodel Tyra Banks to appear in America’s Next Top Model ‘The British Invasion (Cycle 18)’,” explains Alisha White.  “I think one of the reasons why I got selected was because of my positive sense of humour and drive to get to the top. It was an eye-opening experience for me and I will never forget it.” Of course she won’t. One thing is for sure, Alisha will keep competing at the highest level. It’s this unstoppable mental energy and her passionate heart that has made her one of the most talked about (black) British models of her generation.
