Child exploitation is always something I’ve been apposed to. It takes a person time and experience to be good at what they do. Although it takes 1,000 hours to be an expert at your craft, some people seem to skip ahead. One of my best friends showed me a video the other day of a rapper named Lil Niqo.

It’s always refreshing to see models around my age range that are doing impressive things, so I had to throw 21-year-old Ally Rivera up for viewers. She’s resides in Orlando/Clearwater Beach, Florida and describes herself as a very crazy fun girl, but a very loyal and committed person who’s dedicated to her art. Ally loves travel and is currently in school at USF for marketing, and eventually aims to be a pharmaceutical rep for Pfizer. She models swimwear, lingerie, runway, beauty, commercial, fashion, and glamour. She is also available for TV, hosting, commercials, and promotional photography. She’s definitely someone I wouldn’t mind popping out of my suitcase during a long trip.
