War Vet to Model – Natural Nika… ‘Salute’
My name is Shanika Guyton but I go by Natural Nika for my model name and I am an independent fashion/runway model. I was born in Michigan and orphaned at age 6.
I attend Ashford University and graduate with my Bachelors of Arts in Early Childhood Education. I begin my Masters for Crisis and Trauma counseling shortly after.
I served as a Heavy Wheeled Truck Driver (88M) in the Michigan Army National Guard from 2005-2007 and the US Army from 2007-2014. I was based in Europe from 2007 until 2014. I began my modeling passion while in Europe and it extended to California. I was Honorably Discharged from the Army Dec 2014. I deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan during my tenure.

I reside in Southern California.
Although I am only 5’5 I still get booked for many runway shows.
I am looking to build my modeling career and break into high fashion industry.
I am available for assignment in the following fields:
Fashion, Photographic, Commercial, Acting, Promotion, and Glamour.
I do not do nudes, but will be happy to work with swimwear and lingerie.
I am prepared to travel worldwide for my assignments provided that I am paid travel expenses in advance.
No assignment is too small for me.
My hobbies include quilting, scrapbooking, cooking, fitness, soccer and movies.
My favorite Bible Verse is Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengths me!”
