Meet Vanessa Genieva Williams. Vanessa spent her early years in Corvallis Montana where she lived with her family. As an avid young athlete, Vanessa joined Hamilton Tae-Kwon-Do at the age of six. Through hard work and dedication she obtained her 3rd degree black belt at just seventeen and went on to win a second place world title at the Sheriffs Open in Los Angeles Ca. She was team captain for three consecutive years and led her squad to three national titles. Vanessa has applied the same dedication and discipline to her academic studies as her athletics. Attending the University of Montana, she received a degree in Pre-med with a minor in psychology. Currently Vanessa a full time student at Southwest Acupuncture College in Boulder Co. as well as a professional model, represented by the prestigious Wilhelmina Modeling Agency. Recently Vanessa was featured on Maxim.com as well as in Boulder Colorado's own Rooster Magazine, as Classmate of the Year. With all of this going on Vanessa still has time to plan for her own signature fragrance line, set to launch this coming year. Much of this young woman's success comes from her natural talent and undeniable beauty but she does draw much of her inspiration from her mother, who continually pushed her as a young child to be all that she could be and who she fondly refers to as one of her hero's. Vanessa also wants to be an encouraging role model for young women. Her message for those aspiring to reach their goals and pursue their dreams is that with the right amount of hard work and the right attitude, anything is possible!
