Kaienja ‘Kai’ Morae, 20, the daughter of actress Lisa Raye-McCoy, poses in a new photo shoot shot by photographer Jenny Ngo.  Kai, who is an aspiring model, says that supermodel/television host Tyra Banks has been an inspiration to her:


“Me not being a skinny girl, and [Tyra] saying that’s ok… her representing and being like… I’m still pretty, I still have a nice figure, I still have a pretty face shows that you don’t have to be a size 0 to be a model and be a representative and a role model to young girls (Source).”

Though she has had many offers, Kai isn’t signed to a modeling agency as of yet. She wishes to finish college first.

“No, I’m not with an agency right now. I’m trying to focus more on me. I feel like you have to work on yourself first before you can [dedicate] yourself to anything else. I’ve had plenty of offers, I just don’t feel like at this point in time I’m ready or that I need to be signed (Source).”
