Brit Manuela is an American model and social media influencer who has amassed over a million followers on her social media platforms
She was born on January 27, 1994
Brit says she fell into Instagram modeling by accident. She was with a friend who was modeling for a photoshoot.
Yeah. I mean, I showed up pretty much just flannel t-shirt hair in a messy bun. And my girlfriend back in Atlanta, she was doing a photo shoot. And I mean, literally I was carrying the photographer’s coffee and I’m holding and I’m looking and I’m like, Oh, this is so cool. And then he obviously looked at me. I was like, do you want to in front of the camera?
And I was like, who me? I’m like, uh, sure, let me put your coffee down, sir. You know, I don’t know what to do. I’m like, okay. So I got in front of the camera and I mean, growing up, my mom took a lot of pictures, but I was never posing. So I’m trying to like pose and God forbid, these photos come out. I mean, I don’t know where they are now, but I’m just like, you know, I don’t know what to do, but I looked and I was like, this is super fun. And I feel like this is a great way to be creative. Like, I don’t know how to pose, but I can learn how to do it. And there’s certain angles that make me look like this and certain angles that make me look like that. And I kinda got into it and I was like, I kind of want to continue this it’s weird. I never thought of myself ever that I would be a model or love taking pictures as much as I do. I never did. I was like, is this mess meant for me?
Brit rose to prominence on Instagram after several large fitness and bikini Instagram pages reposted her pictures and they went viral.
Brit says she is passionate about maintaining a healthy lifestyle with her fitness, her nutrition and staying away from drugs and alcohol.
I don’t drink alcohol. I don’t smoke marijuana. I don’t smoke cigarettes. I’ve never done a drug in my life. I’ve never taken a drug. I just never really got into it.
My one splurge is definitely sweet tea. I have to have my sweet tea, but it’s the Southern in me.
Brit reveals that her biggest insecurity is her skin.
I have had the most god-awful acne I think anyone could possibly have. I had welts on my cheeks and I couldn’t sleep on my side at night. I’d accidentally bump it and just start bleeding. It hurt, it’s painful. More so than being physically painful it was emotionally painful. It was really embarrassing to walk out of my house. I just lived in Hollywood, just moved to Hollywood at this time and walking around the street with the most beautiful people in the world, I didn’t want to leave my house. I was super self-conscious and you look around you see many people with really good skin and it kind of makes you think why me what am I doing wrong? I was eating healthy, I was working out I, was drinking my water and I still had the worst skin. I washed my face morning and night. I followed every skin care regimen in the book and nothing seemed to work.
If she were to give advice to her younger self, Brit says she would offer this tidbit:
Don’t let somebody make you feel like your dreams are unachievable. Don’t let somebody hold you back from chasing your dreams and I know that sounds super cliche, especially nowadays, but when you’re in the moment and you’re dreaming big, there’s nothing wrong it. There’s gonna be a lot of people trying to let you know that that’s not an achievable goal or maybe you should just stick with the norm.
