    At the tender age of 12, Cameryn Ruby got her first taste into the world of modeling. A photographer friend had asked the then 5'6" teen to pose of several portraits. It was then, the Ohio-native was determined to pursue a career in fashion. Some years later — after graduating from high school and having a 4" growth spurt — the All-American beauty emailed her photos to Elite NYC, and the rest, as they say, is history.

    What have been some of your biggest obstacles growing up and how have you overcome them?

    One of the biggest obstacles I faced growing up was finding the strength to truly accept myself internally. I would look in the mirror everyday and see someone I didn't recognize. My outward appearance read boy, but deep in my soul I always knew I was a girl. I felt trapped in my own body. When I was a kid I wanted so desperately for people to see the real me despite how I looked. I thought I needed the validation of being seen as a girl from everyone else. But even after I started transitioning I was still called the same names. People still weren't nice. My exterior finally began to match my interior, but I still couldn't fully accept the fact that I was trans. This was because I let other people's words dictate what I thought about myself. There came a day when I knew I had to let that go if I wanted to live my life for me. I stopped caring about what people said of me which was a really hard thing to do. I realized the power I had to make a better world for my community. I gave up living in secrecy and shared my story in the hopes it would inspire change and help others. And in doing so I've never been happier.

    Do you have any role models or people you look up to that have made a big impact on your life?

    Someone who I have really looked up to since I was a young teenager is Teddy Quinlivan. I saw her slaying every runway and I really admired her strong confident personality. Her coming out was a major moment for the world of fashion and our community. She helped prove that you don't have to choose between being a proud trans woman and being successful in your career. I always knew I wanted to model but before seeing her story I thought it wasn't possible to do both. She showed otherwise. Her contributions are immense and we are all very proud of her. And I am lucky to call her one of my best judys. She has taught me a lot and I hope to follow in her footsteps one day.

    What are you most passionate about?

    Since I was young art has been my outlet of creative expression. Drawing was a way for me to show my femininity at a very young age. Even before I could use words to express it. This was a huge indicator for my parents to see how I was really feeling on the inside. Fashion was the same. I spent hours watching runway shows and reading magazines. I used to take my moms old clothes and sew new dresses for myself. The little fashion-obsessed diva in me was growing. I was set on working in the industry and becoming a model. Since then my passions have remained the same. Now I'm taking art and design more seriously and would like to turn them into a career one day.
