Benjamin is an award-winning model, Autism Ambassador and host of the YouTube series, Sneaker Jamz.

What do you do and why do you do it?

I have been modeling for 5 years now and am a singer, songwriter, guitarist, actor, and much more! I have autism but I showed everyone that it doesn't matter if we have autism, Asperger's Syndrome, or any other disability. We are human beings and we can still make our dreams come true and we can make a difference because we can all be independent everyday!

I am an Autism Ambassador because I spread the word out to the community about Autism Awareness. It benefits me to share it with everyone who wants to know about Autism Awareness and everybody will learn from it! As an autistic male model, I have been showing everyone that it doesn't matter if we have autism or any other disability, we are human beings and we can still make our dreams come true just like I did when I walked in 29 runway shows and host my new YouTube series SNEAKER JAMZ!

Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?

I would see myself spreading more messages to the world about Autism Awareness and meeting new people and helping out organizations!

If you could have one superpower to help you further your purpose, what would it be and why? How would you use it? 

My superpower would be to spread the word out to the world about Autism Awareness! I would use it because I love to share my story experience to everybody for the benefit of the entire Autism community!

Anthony Amos: Artist and Creator

"I fell in love with drawing at 4-years-old. My mom introduced me to drawing as a creative outlet. Around 10, my grandmother enrolled me in art classes at the Art Institute of Chicago. I got into customizing shoes at 13 because my family couldn't afford to buy fresh kicks but twice a year. It was embarrassing, I hated waiting to be fresh. On a random day, I painted a pair of all-white Air Forces and they were a hit the next day at school. Art kept money in my pockets as a teenager." What do you do and why? I’m a visual artist and sneaker customizer. I create because it's a passion. How does what you do benefit others? My work helps people to define and express themselves in color & style. I also help my clients energize their workspace or homes with dynamic artwork.  Describe your career journey and how it led you to where you are now. I made the decision to be a career artist after I was laid off from a good job. During this time

Eliza Cole: Future Supermodel Extraordinaire

"My name is Eliza Cole, I am 20 years old from South Carolina, a true Southern Belle. I am a full-time cosmetologist with dreams and aspirations to be a full-time model. I competed in several local pageants as well as my high school pageant. When I was a Senior in high school, I was a Senior Model Rep for a local photographer. This is when the modeling bug hit me.

Currently, I am a Cosmetologist assistant and makeup artist. My plan is to one day be a full-time model, doing hair and makeup on the side. I started modeling locally through a photographer friend who suggested I try out for the local fashion shows. This led me to several local runway modeling opportunities. Modeling for me is all about the presentation, the presentation of hair, makeup,

Mia Ross: Budding SuperModel Wonder

  What do you do and why do you do it? My name is Mia Ross. The career I have chosen has been Modeling, I chose modeling because I absolutely love fashion. Creating art with my body is the ultimate self expression for me.  How does what you do benefit others?   Modeling helps others by providing a vision. It provides a fantasy for other to see themselves in a different light. My career is also great for creative expression. There are no creative limits in fashion. Describe your career journey and how it led you to where you are now. My career has been nothing short of a roller coaster. There have been many ups and downs but isn’t that the fun of roller coaster anyway? I have worked to find who I truly am through modeling. I have been denied more times then I would like to count but that’s what has made me the determined person I am now. I have shown myself I don’t take no for an answer. My journey has also shown me I have a drive to help others, this drive has lead me into being a fitn
