We love your genes

Founded in 2014, ‘We Love Your Genes’ is an Instagram-based new face scouting initiative with a dedicated account and hashtag for the public to use: the acronym, #WLYG. Having scouted over ___ individuals, it is the best way to get in front of worldwide development scouts for a chance to get scouted and make IMG Models your agency.

We are so proud of this beauty, @lamekafox 🖤 • It didn’t sit right with me to stay living in the comforts of my home and luxury when my neighbors were outside fighting for those who look just like me and my family. I may be mixed but I was raised by a black woman and man. My grandparents raised me and they grew up in North Carolina, they were both born in the forties so you can only imagine the stories I’ve heard. As ethically ambiguous as I may look I will never forget where I came from. I will never forget my grandfather telling me to put my hands on the back of his drivers seat while being pulled over. Tears streamed down my face as a little girl and I know for a fact that same fear is instilled in the black children of today. I protested today in hopes that one day children will no longer have that fear. I protested today in hopes that one day my children won’t have to protest. There is so much more I have to say but I’ll acknowledge that in a later post. Thank you to my friends who protested alongside me today ❤️
