The mother of two boys, Miylah moved to New York when she enrolled at Parsons The New School for Design, where she studied fashion. With experience on the runway and behind the camera doing promotional work, Miylah said she would love to turn modeling into a full-time gig.
“I love interacting with all these different personalities,” she said. “I really enjoy what I do.”
Her talents aren’t left to the camera, however. Miylah also plays the drums and the violin. She said she picked up the violin when she was just five years old, after she saw a violin while at a friend’s house.
“I saw it and I loved the shape,” she said. “After that, I told my mom I wanted to learn how to play.”
When she’s not modeling, or taking care of her two boys, Miylah said she loves to hang out on Austin Street and Continental Avenue to take in a meal. Her favorite place, she said, was Exo Café on Austin Street.
“I love their appetizers, the food there is so good,” she said.
Miylah said to keep an eye out for her in the coming months, as she has some print work in a jewelry magazine appearing in January, along with a swimsuit catalog upcoming.
|Trumps Twitter (l. to r.): Donald Trump, Olivier Martinez, Halle Berry, Gabriel Aubry
The Queens-born billionaire called out Canadian model Gabriel Aubry, Halle Berry’s ex-boyfriend, after Aubry started a fight – and lost – with Berry’s new beau, French actor Olivier Martinez. Aubry instigated the Thanksgiving Day brawl that resulted in him receiving a severe beating from Martinez.
“Gabriel Aubry should learn how to fight—he became a punching bag,” Trump tweeted. And just so no one felt left out, he turned his Twitter-ire towards Berry: “Always drama with Halle B!”
We’re glad to see Trump has moved on to more important issues now that the election is over.
Nicki Minaj At Alma Mater

More than 600 students and parents were on deck for the holiday homecoming, where Minaj teamed up with New York radio station, Hot 97.
Minaj, who moved to Jamaica, Queens when she was 5-years-old, posed for photos with her little fans and even gave a speech. In her speech, she encouraged students to stay in school and to go out into the world “and be amazing adults.”
Go To The Dogs
Vallone is launching a letter-writing campaign to get Milan Rysa deported from the U.S. to the Czech Republic after the immigrant threw his 50-pound dog out of his Astoria apartment window. The pet, a Chinese Shar-Pei named Brooklyn, sadly did not survive the fall when it occurred in September 2011.
“He tossed a defenseless dog out the window and we need to toss him out of the country,” the councilman said. “Anyone who would do this doesn’t deserve to live here.”
Rysa pleaded guilty to second-degree reckless endangerment and served two-thirds of his 364-day term for his actions. In May 2013, he will face a deportation hearing.
It’s said that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but let’s hope Rysa proves to be the exception to that rule and that he’s learned his lesson for his cruel actions.
After ongoing privacy complaints focused on the full body scanners at LaGuardia and JFK, the TSA is switching out the old machines – which create what some would call creepy clear images of naked bodies – to new ones that show more cartoon-like pictures. The old scanners will be moved to smaller airports around the country.
TSA says the switch is to get people through security faster, but passengers worried about their privacy will undoubtedly feel more comfortable.
Did anyone say Cartoonist?
