No matter if she’s modeling for brands around New York City - including ours ;) - or working in the military as a diesel mechanic, Tiara Mitchell is always moving - and always doing it in style. We talk to the born and bred Brooklynite about tapping into masculine energy, chilling out by cleaning, and bringing that warrior energy everywhere she goes.
What people call you: Tiara, TT, 40
Where you live: BROOKLYN ! (born + raised)
What you do: Me.
How would you describe your style?
I’m tomboy chic. I love a statement piece paired with something simple. It's all in the jacket + bag.
Who are your icons? What is it about them that inspires you?
Rihanna. She is everything! Her style, her personality ( I met her in real life twice and she remembered my name), her energy is perfect.
When do you feel most confident?
I feel most confident when I'm exuding my masculine energy. I enjoy showing that I'm classy but love control.
What’s your daily routine?
I honestly don't have one. I know it's a trait of a millionaire but... I'll just be a 999,999-aire :).
Describe a time in your life when you felt like a modern warrior.
I would have to say when I was in the military as a diesel mechanic during the weekend and modeling during the weekday.
How do you relax and unwind?
Relaxing is a foreign concept to me, there's always something to do. I feel most relaxed washing dishes and cleaning up. I live in a 2 level home alone, so I'm always relaxed.
What keeps you going?
The gift of opening my eyes in the morning. it's the little things we take for granted. I worked in a retirement home and it stuck with me. Some elders couldn't even breathe on their own, it's sad.
Something you’re obsessed with right now:
Nutrition + feminine health.
Words to live by:
Rejection is God's redirection.
What’s your hype up song or anthem:
...I don't want to be judged. Let’s just say, it's usually gangsta rap.
What does Warrior mean to you?
A warrior is the walking definition of perseverance. One who understands there will be obstacles but...you got it!
