Last cycle, the girls of America’s Next Top Model did a photo shoot in which they portrayed homeless youth, which featured 3 [random] models in the background.Â One model in particular caught the eye of the shows creator/executive producer Tyra Branks…Isis.Â She served it as a background model, leaving a lasting impression.Â Isis, 22, was personally invited by Tyra to come back for the 11th cycle.Â But, there was one thing that Tyra wasn’t aware of concerning Isis…. she’s a he!Â As the first transgender contestant to appear on America’s Next Top Model,Â Isis is here to break the mold of the average, and take it to another level. Â
Isis, real name Darrell Washington,Â hails from my home town of Prince Geroge’s Country, Maryland, an aspiring model, she is also an aspiring fashion designer.Â Â She now resides in New York City.
Best of luck to Isis on the upcoming season of America’s Next Top Model, premiering September 3rd on the CW.
