So he is Ralph, he is heavily freckled, and although he is Hatian and not African, we felt his story was one that could inspire people on this platform. Born in Haiti, Souffrant moved to Brooklyn when he was nine to live with his family. “Haiti is a hard place to get by,” he recalled. “You wake up, and you don’t know what you’re going to eat.

Some odd 2/3 years ago, a colleague of his suggested that he stop going to college, where he was studying dermatology, to pursue modeling. He helped him make an Instagram account; almost immediately, people started following him. In less than a few months he landed a modeling contract with Re:Quest and a spot in the Yeezy Season 3 show.
