My name is Molli Nicole I am a full time student at Portland State University and a returning Sugar Does Portland Model!! I could not be more excited for the show and I am beyond amazed at how much hard work goes into such and awesome production!

Yayra Tamakloe is the name or Yayee as everyone calls me. A unique one as it may sound and that is because i am from Ghana which can be traced to West-Africa. I moved here just a little over 2 years ago, when i was 17 and i have lived in Vancouver Wa since. Since i was a child, it has been my ambition to leave a legacy in the world of fashion and modeling. However things like these take time and experience and that is what i am still getting at this point. I love to play competetive sports, sing, dance, cook (mostly my traditional dishes), fix things, in genral be creative. I am always looking for opportunities to better the skills that i already have. At the moment, i am getting my prerequisites for nursing in college. I believe to make it in life, one needs to have faith, a goal and should be able to challenge themselves to be better because the sky is not the limit, its just the beggining of the journey.

My name is Kerry Mann. I was born and raised on Whidbey Island in Washington state. I got my BA in Sociology and moved to Portland in 2009. I started modeling less than a year ago. It’s something that I have always wanted to do and I’m loving every minute of it. My unique look comes from my Swedish, Finnish, German and Welsh heritage.
I do a lot of fitness and lifestyle shoots, but love all types of modeling. My goal in life is to do what I love and never stop creating. I am very passionate about yoga, hiking, playing the violin, traveling and my dog Opei. I've have played the violin since I was four, so I am comfortable in front of a lot of people and being on stage. I am very motivated and work hard at something until I accomplish it. I am detail oriented and love a challenge.

The thrill of the adrenaline give me more confidence then i have ever had. I love being the in front of the camera and capturing moments that might not ever happen again. Modeling isnt my only passion though. I also love baking I am currently a baking and Pastry student at Le Cordon Bleu. Growing up I always wore strange and weird outfits that nobody really under stood so i got picked on a little. To me it was just fashion. I have always had an eye for taking two things that dont really go and throwing them together and making it work. Now that i am a model all my friends and family finally understand and get me in way they they never did. I am always looking for that next runway to rock or camera to catch me in action. It what I do and who I am. Model and baker all wrapped in one. Want to work with me just give me a message and we can work something out.

Before she started modeling and while she was still in high school, Ashley started volunteering for Wanderlust Circus (www.wanderlustcircus.com) and has been a stagehand for them since August 2011. She briefly graced the stage as Mrs. Cratchit in A Circus Carol in December 2012 and hopes to take up the role again this coming Winter. With that being said, she has many thanks to give to Noah Mickens, Mr. Creature and the rest of Wanderlust Circus for taking her in and making her part of the family.
In regards to modeling, Ashley first hit the runway at 2012's GearCon while wearing one of Laura McShane's beautiful designs, (which just so happened to be her senior prom dress as well. You can see more of her work at www.takenbythesky.com). Laura helped Ashley get her foot in the door and has since been a fantastic friend and mentor. She also introduced her to Nellie and Steve of Your Essence Photography (www.youressencephotography.com) who have also welcomed her into their family.
She has participated in a variety of shoots from Steampunk and Victorian to zombie horror and has loved every second of it! On a trip to Seattle with her partner in crime, Tesla, the duo had a chance to do a shoot with CayS Photography, (Facebook Search: CayS in Wonderland) and it turned out amazing! She looks forward to working with her again.
Ashley was also a part of a pin-up calendar with Your Essence Photography, of which the proceeds went to the charity Breast Friends, and that is where she found her true love of everything pin-up. She looks forward to expanding her portfolio and meeting more wonderful people in this industry!
A huge thank you goes to Ashley's family as well as Nellie and Steve for welcoming her into their home and supporting her as she figures out this crazy thing called life. Oh, and thank you to Thor for dealing with her crazy ideas and turning them into beautiful tattoos.
Olivia's first foray into modeling was through a body paint ad on craigslist. She went to a strangers house, stripped off her clothes, allowed herself to be painted, passed out, recovered and made some amazing photographs. From that moment on she was hooked and has worked with countless photographers in many states and a few countries around the world. She's based currently in Portland where she juggles work as a life model for artists, photo modeling, gogo dancing, and a retail job.
I was born in the Midwest and spent the first 8 years traveling the entire East coast, until finally settling in Oregon. "I'm a total Portlander! And I love it. Portland is full of so much diversity and spirit which is a lot like me!".
She has been acting, dancing and modeling since the age of 15 and has loved every step of the way! "I look forward to having the opportunity to doing print work, or film, I have an amazing portfolio and I can't wait for everyone to see it! I have a unique and exotic look which is of Middle Eastern decent that stands out from the rest".
