Raja Syn

Raja Syn is not letting any grass grow under her feet, as the old saying goes.

The Instagram model and influencer spent just a year collecting more than 300,000 followers, which puts her in the upper echelon of influencers on the popular platform.

That comes as no surprise, given her super-sexy poses, which are meant to attract – and keep - the attention of her loyal fan vase.

It has led to work on other platforms, and she does paid photo shoots and music videos as well.

It is exactly what her friends and family wanted for her when they told her she should consider a career in modeling, despite the obvious challenges.

Smart and hard working

There were plenty of options for the Jamaican-born beauty, who grew up in Baltimore and the NYC borough of Brooklyn.

Raja graduated from high school a year early, and initially considered seeking a degree in foreign language (she planned to study Chinese) before realizing that higher education wasn’t for her. She was 17 when she took the hint from loved ones and moved to California to pursue a modeling career.

There, she spent several years working to establish herself, especially so on Instagram.

The platform appealed to her, and she decided to work as an influencer after reading the book “Rich Dad Poor Dad,” which gave her the determination to make a career for herself rather than working to help someone else gain wealth.

“In that same month I began to take influencing seriously,” she said. “Getting signed with an agency seemed impossible to me, so, I turned to Instagram to build my brand. It’s been the best thing I’ve ever done.”

New turf, new goals

After a few years in California, however, she decided to make a major change.

“I moved to Atlanta for a fresh start after realizing Atlanta is the best place to start a career in the entertainment industry as a black girl,” she said.

Since then, she has seen a metamorphosis of sorts.

Her Instagram account has continued to grow, making her a major force in the world of Instagram influencers.

She is also considering different career trajectories, perhaps so she can eventually stop spending so much time at the gym, where she works out rigorously to keep her curvaceous body perfectly shaped and toned.

“I aspire to be a TV personality with my own show,” she said. “I plan on writing my own book soon. I can sing too, but I’m not really focused on a music career. Right now, I’m just moving where the universe takes me.”

Nathalie Nicole Smith states that working hard and staying true to yourself are sure ways to win in life.

She is also considering releasing some workout routines for anyone up for the challenge of her exercise regimen.
