Who Am I?
I’m Modelpreneur, Daisi Jo Pollard Sepulveda. In addition to being a model for 20+ years, including appearing in advertisements for major brands, walking as a national and international model for fashion shows like New York Fashion Week, appearing in national commercials, films, and magazines.
Throughout my career, I've formally studied dance, theatre, art, public speaking, fitness, and nutrition. I have a degree in International Business, an MBA in Leadership and Management, and briefly pursued a Ph.D. I’m not only well-versed in the Art of Modeling and business, but also through my years of experience.
I’ve coached models for Elite Model Look, World Champion of Performing Arts, John Robert Powers, Barbizon, John Casablanca, Miss Universe, and many more agencies. I’ve collaborated with organizations such as the Los Angeles Unified School District, Whittier College, El Camino College, the PTA, and others to create programs promoting careers in the arts as well as provide Modeling Training for after-school and summer programs.
