Meet the Models Series: Chimyra Powell (3 min read)

Her name is Chimyra. But we affectionately call her "Kimora" because she is smart, beautiful, and absolutely fabulous! And when it comes to modeling, she KILLS it every single time so effortlessly. She's a true natural. I met Chimyra when she was a teenager. She was one of my kid's favorite babysitters. Mine too because she washed dishes, braided hair, and made sure the girls had a great time. She's a whole grown up now, a wife and a mother. She's also an infertility warrior who has overcome many of the challenges that come along with that journey. I'm in awe of the woman she has become and grateful that we have remained connected all of these years. She's funny, down to earth, sweet as pie, and a great friend.
