About Marti: "19 year old Sicilian and African-American Model from the DC Metro area.

I am always out and about in the DC underground scene with an awesome hairstyle and fierce outfit. I am edgy but can pull off any themed shoot. I also am learning how to style being inspired from so many different forms of fashion. My style icons are: Sky Ferreira, Edie Sedwick, The Characters Effy and Frankie from the UK version of skins and Erykah Badu. I'm also in the process of designing my own line of Woman's Urban Streetwear."

As far as acting, I enjoy stepping outside of my normal element and learning how to change into different characters. My goal as a young woman aiming for success is to inspire everyone around the world. I desire to be legendary, paving the way for those who never had the great support I've had my whole life. My intentions are to build an empire and help others overcome obstacles in which they never thought could happen. I believe it's my job to remain focused and stand out so that I can continue to be a role model for the youth."
