“I definitely need my space,”…
“I definitely need my space,” says Faith. She certainly gets it. Faith was always on the move—juggling a bartending gig at T.G.I. Friday’s, her college schedule, and model shoots all across the tri-state area.
She’s currently studying Communications at Temple University. I asked her why she doesn’t concentrate mainly on school. She wasn’t into all the ra-ra stuff, and almost never goes to college events. Taken together with all the work she does on a weekly basis, you’ve got yourself one busy lady.
“I don’t believe in that whole you’re-in-college-so-you’re-supposed-to-be-broke thing,” says Faith. And that’s why she shags booze at Fridays.
“I love making Long Island Iced Teas,” she says, “but I hate when people complain about it not tasting like an Iced Tea.”
Tending bar was only the tip of Faith’s iceberg. She’s done numerous model shoots: editorial pieces, glamour shots, hair shows. She’ll likely only be doing it for another year or so until she finishes school, but she certainly was getting a taste for the entertainment industry.
“I’d love to be the CEO of my own business,” says Faith, “or host my own show, or be a producer. I’m not really sure right now, but something in entertainment. An A&R position would be nice.”
Unfortunately, this girl-on-the-go doesn’t make room for guys right now. She’s been single for three years.
“I can’t be with crazy, obsessed, clingy men,” says Faith. “I need a confident, straight-minded man.” All she has yet to find are immature boys. Not too long ago, a guy on South Street try to holler at her. “Come here now,” was the line he used. All Faith did was walk away.
If you don’t see Faith around, keep an eye out for a blur of sweat pants and a t-shirt. That’s all she wears, and she’s always on the move. If she slows down enough for you to get a word in, try something nice like, “please come here now.”
