People are bestowed with a diverse set of skills and talents. When viewed carefully, the world is one whole network composed of individuals who use their aptitudes to keep everything running – from the homes to the largest companies in the world. Naturally, people come from different beginnings and follow paths that eventually lead them to find their niches within society. Others perform specific roles, while others have the gift of flexibility. Alsandria Reid is the latter.
Reid is a freelancer who is ready to work for companies and brands in marketing their products through her skill set. She has worked with many notable photographers and artists in the past. One of which is photographer Eric Baddour, from Austin, Texas, who took the impressive picture of Alsandria featured above.
Brands often want to employ talents who are flexible enough to perform a variety of tasks. This is why Reid is venturing to the field as she is skilled in modeling, public speaking, painting, acting, and dancing. Her versatility is her advantage among her peers.
In working with prospective business partners, Reid wants to become an influential voice within the community. She believes in a constant learning process, and even when she has already refined her skills, Reid is still updating it and learning as she goes.
Reid was born and raised in an abusive, coercive religious group, “Tony Alamo Christian Ministries.” The compound in Fouke, a small town in Southwestern Arkansas, was her home until an FBI raid in 2008. At the young age of 17, Alsandria found herself in custody and placed in foster homes. From then on, she battled life on her own terms. The story of the children living in the Tony Alamo Christian Ministries caught the attention of many. It was featured in local and national television programs and eventually became the subject of the book, Whispering in the Daylight.
The experience may have been petrifying, but for her, it signaled the start of a career that would urge her to become a fitness model, influencer, and a growth and self-help promoter.
She later found herself entering the US army and joining the ranks of others who dedicate their lives to their country and their countrymen. The patriotic field is also where Reid found a man she loved and married, but the relationship did not work. She left the army, divorced her husband, and set off to a new path that she was always destined to take. The death of her younger brother came as another hurdle for Reid. Having to encounter numerous obstacles, Reid found herself on edge. However, her mindset kept her going, and since then, Reid embarked on a mission to find herself and her purpose.
Moving forward, determined, and confident, Reid is taking to Instagram to influence others about her story and the principles that she acquired all through her years. As a rising influencer, Reid imparts her experience to others and allows them to learn a lesson that she has held on for years: to not give up in the face of adversities. Her strength of heart and determination to hone her innate abilities has landed her in many company offerings. And she continues to add to her catalog of striking photographs and content that intends to inspire, motivate, and capture the eyes of brands.
