You may have felt a sense of exclusion while browsing through a modeling catalog and not finding a face that reflects you. Most models presented to the world have caucasian heritage, with smooth white skin and sparkling blue eyes. It is not a surprising knowledge that the modeling industry severely lacks diversity. That calls for an increased representation of different races and the need to uplift diverse, competent models. Princess April is an Asian model, content creator, and influencer, making waves unapologetically while celebrating her race and skills. She is providing a voice to many other Asian models and opening avenues for variety in adult modeling.
Born in a small town in Orange County, April felt the micro-representation of Asian features in magazines and on screen. Growing up in a middle-class family and seeing such exclusion from mainstream beauty campaigns impacted April and prompted her to take charge – she wanted to have more than she was given.
