Meet Layla


I am an Iconic Beauty because I am a dreamer who will stop at nothing to make sure those dreams come true. I’ve made mistakes but I have always moved passed them and learned from them. Over time, I have learned to love myself no matter where I am at in my journey and it’s changed the way I look at everything. Its not about comparing yourself to others and where they are at. It’s about being the best possible YOU every single day and always pushing yourself closer to the things you want to accomplish.

" When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life." – John Lennon

Real Life Me

The Real Me

What was your first “I made it” moment: When I decided to move to LA, I literally packed up my car and drove cross country from Orlando, FL. Living in the city I’ve always dreamed of and doing what I love most with a group of amazing girls is definitely an “I made it” moment. I’ve become fearless and get more excited everyday to chase after my crazy dreams!

Whats your favorite thing about yourself? Being able to laugh at myself, I used to be so hard on myself and judge myself when I would make a mistake. Now I simply laugh and move on.

What are you really good at? Well, I think I’m good at everything but in reality I’m not lol. I do make a bomb chicken parmesan though.

What are some things you need to practice more? Winged liner, for sure!

What are some things you would rather avoid? LA Traffic and rude people

What is your proudest accomplishment? Winning Worlds Perfect Teen 2014 was definitely my proudest accomplishment because it took me three years of trying really, really hard to finally capture the title.

What is your favorite part of everyday? Waking up and drinking coffee, knowing that I’m going to get a lot done.

Who/What inspires you? Every single one of the Iconic Beauty models inspires me. Every one of them is so passionate about there dreams. It’s amazing to have girls you can call or text whenever your feeling down or like you can’t do something and they are always there to push you a little harder than you would push yourself.

What makes you laugh? My friends are constantly making me laugh.

If i were a recipe, I would be made up of..? I would just be a big bag of Hot Cheetos.

What is your biggest/top priority? My biggest priority is being able to touch one person and have them look at me and say “because of you I didn’t give up.” To tell all the people who have felt like they weren’t pretty enough, or tall enough, or skinny enough to stop listening to what “society’s” image of perfection is. What makes you beautiful is the things that set you apart from everyone else. Everyone is beautiful in there own way. You just need to own it!
