FACES Meet Nikki Dubose…. MIAMI LIVING 30 Personal Interests: I love traveling, first and foremost. When I travel my soul feels free, and I grow as a person. I also love food, though because of modeling, I have to stick to a strict diet—but once a week I allow myself to eat whatever I want. I'm into keeping my body toned and lean, and I practice pilates and yoga. Favorite Miami hangouts: Nikki Beach is always a lot of fun, and the renovated Fontainebleu Hotel is amazing on the weekends. How did you get started in the biz? I modeled as a child, then hated it and kept running away from the business because I never ever thought I would be successful. But every time I ran away, an opportunity to get back into modeling came knocking. So finally I grabbed some confidence, and here I am! Any advice for young model-hopefuls? Believe in yourself. It's your foundation. Modeling is a business, and it can be cruel. This business is 99% rejection. Self-confidence gives you the tools to pick yourself up after rejection. It's how you handle the shut door that determines where the next one opens. And confidence is the sexiest attribute you can have. Proudest achievements: Being named one of the most beautiful women in the world. Working for Ed Hardy, Juicy Couture, Tracy Reese, and others. My dream is to work for Victoria's Secret and Guess. Favorite pastimes/hobbies: I'm a nerd, really. I love to read the newspaper, and on downtime you can find me at home reading a book. Favorite charities: I am in the process of starting my own charity, GAB, Girls Against Abuse. I had an abusive life up until recently, so helping others is a dream of mine. I also worked this year with Charitybuzz and Do Something! charities. If you could date anyone: I have a wonderful boyfriend! I started dating Mexican actor Rodolfo Jimenez earlier this year. People often think we met through the business, but we actually met at Disney World! If you could change one thing about yourself: I need to have more patience. I can have a bit of a temper. Who are you represented by? In Los Angeles I am represented by IModel and Talent ( and in Miami I am represented by Irene Marie ( They both are amazing to work for. Personal Web address?
