Young model is in it for the long haul

Rayya Majid-Ahad of Phoenix, Ariz. Is 11 years.

And her modeling career is nearly as old as she is.

She started at the age of 5 when an aunt saw some potential in the fashion world.

Rayya went to New York Fashion Week in 2022 where she modeled for Young Gods Clothing. She has participated regularly in Phoenix’s Kids Fashion Week since 2019.

The youngster, who was a recent winner of Victoria Henley’s Magnifique Showcase, wants to continue to be a model when she grows up. But her ultimate goal is to be an obstetrician/ gynecologist.
