Joan Smalls

An average day at work for Joan Smalls includes breaking through barriers and representing women of color on international runways.

Besides making strides for supermodels of color, Smalls has also ranked among the Top 10 highest paid models in the world.

Her contracts with cosmetics companies, her magazine covers, and her work in television have solidified her position within the fashion industry.

Smalls, a Puerto Rico native, relocated to New York to pursue a career in modeling and it certainly paid off. Smalls is a triple threat, combining beauty, grace, and intelligence perfectly; graduating Magna Cum Laude, owning international runways, and diversifying the concept of beauty can all be checked off Smalls’ bucket list!
