Bethann Hardison interviews the up-and-coming model Sedene Blake

This 19-year-old Jamaican beauty with her animated personality proves that beauty, style and personality matches are what makes certain models stand out from the rest. And Sedene has all those qualities and more. The industry is beginning to take notice, and well it should.

Meeting Sedene put a smile on my face, because that is how she greets you, with a smile. She emanates sunshine, and it's catching. Our conversations are quick, lively, humorous.

It was her aunt in 
Kingston Jamaica who encouraged her to model and who continues to keep her grounded.  That is always nice to hear, especially in career involving so much travel.

Sedene is at the beginning of her career. Having only worked a few months, she's already got her sights set high. Her ambition? "To be the biggest model." And that's just what she deserves.

Sedene Blake has already done the following shows: Jason Wu, Costello Tagliapietra, Peter Som, Catherine Malendrino, Custo Barcelona, Carolina Herrera, Derek Lam, Philip Lim, Tommy Hilfiger.

She will appear on: Vogue Italia by Greg Lotus, Russian Vogue by Terry Tsiolis, W by Bruce Weber, POP by Tina Barney, Interview Magazine by Mikael Jansson, Teen Vogue by Sebastian Kim.
