My name is Rasmiyyah Sahirah I am a Petite Model, Trained jazz/contemporary/ballet and hip hop Dancer/Performer/Instructor and aspiring Actress. I am from a small resort beach island in Ocean City New Jersey.Being raised in a city with an average population of 7 thousand with only 2% African American population has been an enlightening experience of growth. One of the hardest struggles in growing up in a small town is understanding the best way to adapt in such a racially split population. I come from a family of drug addiction and a very small earnings. Where I am from their hasn’t been a African American entertainer that has accomplished success, the daily work life is all we see. I have successfully worked as an optician in my home city where I am the only African American that provides optical services to patients that range from age 30-92. In addition I am a Jazz/Ballet teacher in my home town and performer. Who says you can’t beat the odds and overcome adversity and represent a strong intellectual African American Woman. I am beating the odds in my city so I will achieve greatness in this entertainment life and inspire success. I have learned you must risk it all and must strive to be a success and stand out from the rest. I currently relocated to Philadelphia to be closer to my dance Company Philly Sirens LLC. I know I will put my small island on the map with one of my many entertaining talents in Dancing, Modeling and Acting.
