Mika Sherree is a model and actress born and raised in the Windy City of Chicago. Mika began her modeling career at Northern Illinois University in 2007. After perfecting her runway walk she developed a true passion for modeling. She set her sights on fashion modeling in NYC. After a living in New York, Mika decided living in the Big Apple was not for her so she returned to Chicago to regroup and plan her next steps.
Intent on living the coastal life and having ruled out New York Mika felt Hollywood would be the place to ramp up her career. Enchanted immediately with the mountains, palm trees and sunshine she set herself up in a place and at only 20 was ready to take the LA modeling scene by storm.
Mika worked as a freelance model to build up her portfolio and sought out representation. Her freelance modeling led to opportunities working with many reputable companies and names such as; Anheuser Busch, The Janice Dickenson Show, and was recruited for America’s Next Top Model. She was the lead female model in Lil Wayne’s Everygirl music video and she was also featured in Eminem’s Rockstar- We Made You video.
All the while Mika was enrolled in school and tackling a degree in nursing. She was determined to be a successful model as well as complete her nursing education. Always one to challenge herself, Mika jumped at the chance when an opportunity to finish her nursing degree in an accelerated program back in Chicago presented itself. Armed with the experience and knowledge she had garnered during her time in Los Angeles, Mika was ready to delve into the Chi town modeling and acting scene.
Today, Mika Sherree has a BSN from Chamberlain College of Nursing. She experienced success as a model as well; booking many print and commercial jobs for brands such as, State Farm, Colgate, Comcast, Sears, Ross, Perkins Restaurant, and gracing the pages of many magazines such as, Essence, Sister 2 Sister, and Marie Claire.
Always ready with her signature smile Mika was born to be in front of the camera. She has also set her sights on projects that allow her to give back. The first of such projects is Mika Model Management.
