Hottie of the Week: Shauni

By Lady Killa
Hip Hop Vibe Staff Writer

The face of Shauni may not look familiar, but it will in the very near future. Already, Shauni has appeared in several high-profile music videos, which made it to television. A little over a year ago, she linked with a new company and is ready to take things to the next level.

Shauni knows her future is bright and she has major plans. Recently, she discussed her future plans with Hip Hop Vibe.

Read the entire interview below:

How do you feel about your career currently?
I feel like I'm finally making progress. I've dealt with alot of flaky people in the industry who damn near promised me different events in which I didn't get a chance to pursue them.

When did you link up with Suga Cane Entertainment?
I want to say it was at the end of May.

Explain your experience with the company so far.
Its definitely been a learning experience lol but a fun one based on the fact that we all have built relationships with each other. If we hadn't some of our most skeptical moments would've made it difficult to keep the faith.

For the most part, how have things gone for you?
They've gone pretty awesome! I've networked with some great people, attended a lot events,and got a chance to be exposed to the some powerful people in the industry, which in itself is amazing since we are just getting started. I believe this is good for me.

Do you ever fall victim to being star struck?
Not yet; I have come across some people who've recognized me from either "The Car & Bike Show" or the clubs we work at. I'm pretty humble, so when I finally get my article published with you guys, I can get a little star struck. lol

How do you separate professional from personal?
I try to keep my emotions out of my professional life, because if I don't, I would handle certain situations totally different.

When did you first begin modeling?
I started modeling in the 11th grade. I was an officer in JR. Council, we had to put on this event called "The Show" and every since then I wanted to walk around made up in heels..

Do you feel as if you are born to entertain?
Of course (laughs). I feel as if I don't fit in with "Regular People" I sing, write, act, dance, and model. I have nothing in common with anyone who honestly feels like a 9-5 for life is the greatest thing ever, I would rather die trying to fulfill my dreams than be stressed out being someone's corporate bitch, I'm just saying.

Does working in the nightlife make you dislike it on a personal level?
No, I actually look forward to it. We work for some pretty hot clubs and to be able to walk in like we run it (we do) is always fun. VIP sections & free bottles.. I will always love it!

Has your work for a few of the Atlanta clubs turned you into a local celebrity?
Somewhat. People see me or hit me on Facebook and Twitter just to ask if I'll be at Door 44, Essos, or Josephine Lounge all the time. Guys mainly ask because they feel its a way to get a me (laughs). It really isn't, but I guess harmless flirting (Promoting) isn't a bad thing to keep my growing fanbase up!
