Such an absolute honor to have you on feature FHM! What has your journey as a certified bombshell been like so far? I have been a very spirited person, at 15 I contracted Guillain-Barré syndrome. I had to re-learn to walk and talk. It was always my dream to model, and this setback really catapulted me to push myself to become the model and person I am today, not even the doctors were sure I could be. Since then, you’ve also found joy in helping others get into modeling and pushing through any and all challenges.

We are blown away by your drive and professionalism, can you tell us what some of the things that motivate you to stay on top of your game are? I think the number one thing that motivates me is looking back on my past and what it took to get me here. Secondly, watching the new talent as the industry constantly grows and changes reminds me to also adapt to new things within the industry and branching out to try some things I haven’t in the past. Thirdly, my close friends who are also models are great at motivating and supporting me.

Top 3 best moments of your career? The first time I saw myself in a magazine layout, being inducted to the Hall of Fame MNW, and mentoring other models.

What is your favorite chill time activity? I love being with friends, and I love the outdoors. 

We are taking you out on your ultimate date and we really want to knock this one out the ballpark, what would that entail? I would like to be picked up in a sports car and taken to an upscale restaurant for dinner. After that, I’d like to go to a nice lounge for some drinks and dancing. 

What are, hands down, your absolute favorite things to do?  I love many things in life. Whatever it is I’m doing I know that I’ll be doing it 110% of all my effort.

3 ultimate deal breakers when it comes to men?  Someone who is mean to children or animals. I don’t like people gossiping. Road rage.

You have one last chance to do something you have always wanted to do, with no limits on anything, what are you doing? Surfing the big waves in Hawaii.

Where would you say is your favorite place to be in the world and why? Florida because that’s where I grew up. Or the opposite end of the spectrum, The Midwest because I enjoy snowmobiling.

What is currently playing on loop on your playlist? I’ve been listening to a Soundcloud artist by the name of Toolio. He has an incredible way with words that really connect you to the music. 

Where can our readers catch up with you and stay updated with your work? I can be found on Instagram as @modeldaniellediamond.

We are so happy to have gotten to know you a little bit! Any last words out there for our readers? If you have a dream, no matter how big it may seem, never give up on it. I didn’t, you shouldn’t either.
