PONY RYDER: Jeneil, how did you feel the first time you landed in NY?

JENEIL WILLIAMS: When I first got here it was really amazing because it was my dream to get an agency in New York City. My mother agent took me around to meet with all of the agencies in New York and I ended up signing with New York Models – who I had met with in Jamaica during the model contest. I love my agency and New York. I have met incredible people and love this city!
