Model Diaries with Marquita Pring



In four words how would you describe yourself?


Where are you from and where do you call home today?

I’m from a very small town in upstate New York, Clinton. These days New York City is home,

How did you begin your career as a model?

I began my modeling career by attending a scouting competition!! I wouldn’t typically recommend this route, but for me, it changed my life!

What was your first job?

My first job was with Rainbow Shops. It was the perfect first experience, everyone was so sweet and helped me get the hang of things very quickly.

What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned in the course of your career?

Advocate for yourself. You might hope that other people will do it for you, but at the end of the day it’s so important to speak up for yourself, especially about your own goals and dreams and most importantly if ever you feel uncomfortable with something—let that be known!

What has been your most memorable highlight of your career so far and why?

Most memorable highlight has absolutely been working with Sports Illustrated Swim. The shoots I’ve done with them have been beyond exciting and fun. I’ve had the chance to shoot in some beautiful locations and be more creative and collaborative with amazing people in front of and behind the camera.

How do you hope to influence people through your career and social media platform?

I could write a book about this one. Since we’re talking about fashion, I want to continue the message I’ve been speaking about for years. That is, women of all sizes deserve a place on catwalks, in fashion magazines, and most importantly in the clothes of these influential brands. They are paying more attention, but we still don’t have the equality in the fashion industry I would like to see. I’m also very passionate about matters of social injustice, specifically women’s rights and racial equality. I hope to shed light on these issues while also letting my free spirit shine through my platform, at the very least I hope to inspire people to explore more and be a little more open minded in their day to day lives.

What advice do you have for young girls looking to be a part of the modeling industry?

It’s important to know why you want to be modeling. The industry has changed so much in the years that I have been a model. It’s not just about being a pretty face anymore. As models we now have an opportunity to use our platforms to inspire and influence others and I think it’s important to realize that power and take it seriously.

What are 3 things on your holiday wish list?

I want more exciting adventures and experiences, I have enough stuff these days and really want to focus on trying new things and seeing new places.

A holiday movie you’ll be watching on repeat?

Elf…Elf…Elf…ELF!!! Cracks me up every time!

Favorite fashion trend of all time.

Sneakers. I. Love. Sneakers.

Are you working on any new projects you can share?

I’m working on a few things but until they’re completely, officially out in the world, I keep my lips sealed!

What’s at the top of your bucket list for 2022?

Seeing the Northern lights in Iceland, hopefully I can check that one off pretty early on in the new year.

What would you like to say to your fans?

I am so grateful for each and every one of you, your messages and support are my motivation in pushing myself to new limits. Let’s keep inspiring each other.

Why are you excited to be on Modeliste’s cover?

I have so much respect for women and Modeliste is a platform that highlights women in all their greatness.
