Tiana Parker— you have seen her everywhere from modeling for Fashion Nova, LacebyTanaya and most recently seen modeling I.AM.GIA. threads. However, Parker had “Aspiring Model”in her Instagram biography just a little over a year ago.

Recognized for her goddess-like, legs-for-days-body, Parker has taken the fashion scene by storm this past year, but what caught our attention wasn’t only her looks but how passionate she is about what she sees as important. Working hard, spending time with family, feeding her brain and not getting caught up in all the glitz and the glam the fashion world has to offer.

Through her posts, she makes it very apparent that though she models for a living, she takes pride in living simple and sees modeling as an art form. After her little brother was killed by police brutality earlier this year she learned how precious life is and that all that matters is doing your best, keeping your mind strong and spending as much time with family as possible. Everything else is secondary.

Parker speaks frequently about the power of knowledge, hard work and self-care in terms of feeding your heart, brain and soul. Everything is temporary and she prides herself in always taking the time to become a better version of herself. It is because of these facts, that we deemed her SAPERE’s Model of the Year.
