Interview with HONEY CARTER (@_.h._.o._.n._.e._.y._)

Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?

I have lost over 160lbs with a change of lifestyle. I’ve become more invested in working in the modeling industry and being an advocate for others who think it’s impossible to lose weight and become the best version of yourself.

Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this?

I have been invited to award ceremonies, American music awards, grand openings, and most recently, a 13 city tour this summer.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them thrive and not “burn out”?

Stay consistent- belief in yourself- your only competition is yourself

None of us can achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a person you are grateful for who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?

No particular person, I’m grateful to God for always blessing me and protecting me through the up and downs of this journey we call life.

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?

Yes! I volunteer a lot, mainly for our active-duty military (uso), as well as volunteer at local animal shelters and endangered youth programs

Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?

“How long they choose to love you will never be your decision “no one knew who I was a year ago; I blew up overnight, and with the fame and spotlight, of course, comes people who rather not see you succeed or do better. You have to remain true to yourself and who you are. It’s not up to you how others feel towards you. You can only focus on yourself

How can our readers follow you on social media?

They can follow me at _.h._.o._.n._.e._.y.__ I’m very active on my social media platform and have an amazing PR team who fills any void I can not immediately address

Anything specific you’d like to have mentioned in the article?

Currently modeling, open contract for collaborations with designers & business, weightloss journey, master’s degree in Criminal Justice from VCU, (and anything else that will make my article more appealing)
