Teen Anok Yai Gets Modeling Offers After Her Photos Became An Internet Sensation

Anok Yai grew up in Manchester, New Hampshire, and is a sophomore at Plymouth State University. The photos had been liked more than 11,000 times, shocking Yai.

My phone just started vibrating rapidly for a long, long time,' Yai told the Globe of the moment she realized her photo was going viral. At first, I honestly thought someone made a meme of me or something. Her new followers on the social media app began tagging numerous modeling agencies to give her a contract. As a result, Yai said she's heard from three modeling agencies.

The biochemistry student who moved to the U.S. with her family from Egypt in 2000 says she's always been interested in fashion and art, but modeling was the dream. It was a dream that I always wanted, but I wasn't sure if it was going to happen,' she said.

A photographer snapped a few images of the 19-year-old for his Instagram account, theSUNK, last weekend while she was attending Howard University's popular homecoming festivities in Washington, D.C. The artist captioned it: 'Saw her right at the end of Yardfest. Stunning @anokyai'. He said he was photographing people with nice outfits and there was a chance her photos could go viral.
