Meet The Model: Roger @ Priscillas

Roger that.

We need to talk about Roger, a Nashville-born New York-based model whose top priority in life is buying her dog a nice sweater. The certified legend also believes in the law of karma, enjoys mathematics and is currently using her God-given height in the field of modelling. 

Name: Roger

Nickname: Em or M, my first name is Emily and my last name is actually Rogers.

Star sign: Gemini

Where did you grow up and where are you living now?
I grew up right outside of Nashville, Tennessee in a suburb called Mount Juliet. As of right now, I've kind of been bouncing all over the place, I just got back from Australia and plan to go back to New York soon.

What were you into in high school?
As nerdy as it sounds I loved math. I doubled up in math every year I could. I was never really into sports or good at them for that matter.

In what ways have you changed since then?
Well I'm only 18 and I just graduated, but even in the months that I've been out of school I think I've had a lot more time to myself to really develop, and figure out what I like and what I want to do with my life, without the influence of my peers around me. I've really been focusing on myself.

What's the best piece of advice you've ever received? 
What you put into the world, you get back out; basically the law of karma.

What are you most excited about atm?
My dog's second birthday. I love my dog. He deserves a nice sweater.

How did you get ~discovered~?
Well I was really tall in middle school and I always heard either, "you should play basketball" or "you should be a model", and, like I said before, me and sports don't get along well so I approached my mother agency about modelling and it all kind of worked out.

What would be your last meal be?
Shake Shack burger and fries with a vanilla milkshake no doubt.

What causes or issues are important to you?
I'm concerned about the inhumane treatment of animals and the availability of clean drinking water for everyone in the world.

What's your idea of utopia?
I think utopia would be where people contribute based on their abilities and receive based on their needs.

If you were Supreme Leader of the world for a day what rules would you implement?
If I could be Supreme Leader for the day I would make sure that everyone everywhere had adequate food, shelter and water for at least that day because there's millions of people that don't have that now.

Best thing on the internet?
Memes. Hands down. No questions asked.

What do you want to be when you grow up?
The first astronaut billionaire doctor model.
