I am a former International runway model and author of my top selling memoir Wild Child To Couture Style The Shailah Edmonds Story.
My book is an inspirational testimony of my journey from a small town, Portland, Oregon, to the Couture runways of Paris, and how I alone, starting from the most unlikely, tumultuous beginnings, persevered through rejection, discrimination, ageism etc., to accomplish my goals.
My message is not only for models, but to inspire people from all walks of life to succeed in their endeavors by pursuing their goals with the vengeance of hard work, dedication, planning, spirituality and perseverance.
My presentation includes humor and jaw dropping escapades and experiences that will keep an audience engaged.
My book was mentioned in the New York Times in June of 2020, and garnered film offers and several book talks. It also has top reviews on Amazon.
