Small town, big dreams


Like the protagonist in Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing, model Rayna is just a “small town girl living in a lonely world.

But the 13-year-old has her sights on life on the runway.

Rayna said in an email interview that she comes from a small North Carolina town, but she has big dreams.

In an email interview, the modeling newcomer is “committed to moving beyond the barriers of her location to see a world beyond her immediate reach.”

The email explained Rayna has “overcome many obstacles and is looking forward to learning and growing in the industry, as well as showing other young girls they can pursue their dreams.”

Rayna has taken one giant step toward her dream of life on the catwalk by securing representation from NYMMG agent, Maura MacDonald.

Rayna was a recent winner in the Magnifique modeling competition organized by former “America’s Next Top Model” contestant and social media personality Victoria Henley.
