Each week BlackSportsOnline will profile a model who is doing big things in the world of modeling and other entertainment or professional industries. At the end of the year there will be a vote for the BSO Model of the Year.
Standing 5’11 and 170lbs, Sabrina Athena is making her curvy statuesque presence known on the modeling and entertainment industry. With an athletic upbringing (Basketball/Track & Field) her father/coach enstiled the value of healthy competition, diet/exersise, and pushing her self to excell from an early age.
Hailing from Detroit MI, she graduated HS and was awarded a T&F scholarship to Huston Tillotson University in Austin, Texas. Shortly after she then moved to New York in 2004 and signed with Click Model Management under the commercial plus division. Working as a plus model opened her eyes and mind to all aspects of the fashion industry. Wanting to further expand appreciation for modeling, she enrolled at Fashion Institute of Technology and was accepted into the Advertising and Marketing Communications program.
While studying she continued to model, switching from Click to Fiorello Management under the commercial print division. Having bigger ideas for herself she parted ways with Fiorello and took her career into her own hands. Most recently she has graced Urban Ink Magazine (August 2010) as well as Black Mens Magazine (April 2010). Be on the look out for her in upcoming websites, magazines, radio and television mediums. Currently she is working with independent talent advisors and strategically building her brand beyond modeling.
– “I feel that my purpose in this industry is to encourage women of all shapes and sizes to embrace their natural beauty. If that be short, tall, fat, skinny, dark, light or a little bit of all, we are given what we are given for a reason.”
-“I am eclectically fabulous and uniquely glamorous, an eccentric beauty am I.” – Sabrina Athena
