Edward: Hello Jmiah, welcome to Connex family. Tell us: what are your personal and professional interests?
Jmiah: My professional interests are really derived from my personal interests. I love GOD with a MAD passion... ha ha... and I love people too!! I want to pursue being all I can be in this industry being in the public eye... because to me it's more than just being a pretty face and pretty body... it's about WHO YOU ARE and HOW YOU CAN TOUCH LIVES in society, better mankind, be a positive role model, encouraging people to pursue their dreams, to live with the highest standards you possibly can, and just flat out LOVE GOD with all you have!! I want to LOVE GOD, and LOVE PEOPLE... and show people that no matter what... you can be WHO YOU ARE DESTINED TO BE... just pursue!My professional interests? Well, I have some long term and short term goals. My short term are features in my favorite fitness magazines... being able to use my influence to help the American society better themselves in health, fitness, and nutrition. But not just fitness modeling, I have music all inside of me... acting and it's all just a matter of time before I´m going to the next level. I want everyone who has invested in me, to know they invested in a good market, ya know? Long term goals... well, I want longevity in this career... i don´t want to be a ONE HIT WONDER so to speak. I want to be around for a while and influence as many as I can!
Edward: As a model, actor and fitness trainer, you think u´ve already achieved your main purposes in these areas?
Jmiah: UM... well, as far as the goals I set back in 1999? Yes! But not for the goals I have in 2006... it' s all about pushing yourself to be the BEST you can be, man!! I' m DIABETIC TOO... i want people to know that diabetics aren't limited... man, we can do ANYTHING!!!
Edward: In your opinion, what is the key of the success? What are the upside and downside of a modeling career?
Jmiah: The KEY to success in ANYTHING is simply... PASSION, PERSISTENCE, PEOPLE SKILLS, and... WISDOM!The upside of a modeling career is the sky... there's no limit baby... just gotta have standards! downside? Well... when you don´t get the job you wanted, just get back up and go for the next one... when it's in your heart, you're bound to win!! Just make sure modeling is what you REALLY WANNA DO... if not, dont waste your time. There is so much in life to do... find your purpose and RUN WITH IT!!
Edward: Are you a guy into sports? What´s your secret to be in a good shape? What´s the part of your body you like most and why?
Jmiah: My secret to be in good shape? hmmm.... well, I've learned that CONSISTENCY in working out is the BEST secret of ALL! WHY? because anything worth having in life has a price you gotta pay!My favorite body part? Umm... i dunno... I've been told my eyes are the best! LOL I never really thought of my best... I've always just tried maintaining a balance of them all... my abs are my focus though... they ALWAYS got to look my best, because they are the hardest to display!
Edward: Family and friendship: how do think the world is dealing with these two subjects in the society we live?
