Name one your strengths?
Determined- I set goals and pursue them until it happens.
Best advice ever given?
The best gift you can give someone is to listen because all people want in life is to be heard.
How and when did you start into modeling/influencer?
I did some modeling in my teen years, but it was about 9 years ago when I moved to Las Vegas that my career in modeling began to take off and I started doing runway shows and my work continued to increase. I became an influencer almost overnight when I shot for the first time with a well known photographer about 5 years ago. It was after that photo shoot that offers began to pour in.
What is fun and rewarding about modeling? And what is not?
Modeling builds self confidence, it’s fun work, and I get to travel. The downside is that there are shady people in the industry and you can find yourself in uncomfortable situations. Models need to be very careful about their personal safety.
What did you learn from your biggest failure?
I learned to make different choices. When you are engaged in something that doesn’t have a positive outcome or is taking you down a negative path, you have to stop and intentionally make a change and do something different.
The most important thing when you are shooting is?
Having self confidence is the most important thing during a shoot. Self confidence comes through in your photos and if you don’t have it, it shows in your photos.
What’s your advice for the newer models/influencers?
Do your research and know who you are shooting with. Be careful.
What book should every entrepreneur read?
Maximum Achievement by Brian Tracy
What actor/actress/model do you admire the most, and why?
I admire Kim Kardashian and the Kardashian family. I know they’ve taken a lot of flak in the media, but they are beautiful women who went after what they wanted in life and made it happen.
What’s next for Corrie Yee in 2021?
To continue what I’m doing now and expand into other magazines and venues.
If you are a book, what would be the title of the book and why?
A Beautiful Storm possibly. Why? Life has been beautiful in that it’s been fun and adventurous, but it’s also been a little crazy at times.
Which magazine or project is still on your bucket list?
Maxim and FHM are two publications I would like to be in and I’m also interested in doing a reality TV show.
In five years from now, where do you see yourself and your career?
I see myself as continuing to work in this field because I love it, and I want to branch out and become involved in real estate and investments.
Now talking about Instagram, can you share some tips for keeping your account interesting?
You need to continually be aware of what is trending on social media and follow that trend. You also need to be aware of changing algorithms on social media platforms.
You are followed by so many people. How do you feel about that pressure of doing always the right thing, and encourage people to follow their dreams?
First of all, I don’t feel pressure. I focus on doing me, on doing what I want to do with my life and achieving my dreams. I think everyone should focus on their own dreams and not worry about what other people think. I have never cared what other people think about me, and I think that’s empowering. Do you. Everyone should focus on their own path in life. It’s not a one size fits all. What’s right for someone else, is not necessarily what is right for you. I do me – you do you.
I bet you get millions of it, but what are the best and worst Instagram DM pickup lines you received so far?
Outside of the constant dick pics, the worst are marriage proposals and claims of wanting children with me. I find that archaic. Women have options these days. We no longer have to be wives and mothers.
Now tell us about the huge success of your Only Fans account. That’s amazing. Congrats!
You mean, Only Money? I have 47,000 followers on OF and it’s like having 47,000 boyfriends. If they each give me 1.00, well… do the math.
What is your favorite healthy food?
Kale – I love kale and eat it everyday.
And your favorite cheat food?
What is your own definition of happiness?
Love yourself first, and be completely who you are.
How would your best friend describe you?
Bougie, rich, and fun.
Who is your biggest beauty inspiration?
Kim Kardashian – I think she’s gorgeous.
What does fashion mean to you?
My personal fashion are two extremes – I like to dress up and be totally bougie, or I dress down and go for complete comfort with yoga work out clothes or baggy sweatpants.
How would you explain your fashion style and what items in your closet can you not be without?
My fashion style is very bougie, and I can’t be without my diamonds.
If you could meet someone living or dead, who would it be and why?
I’d want to meet Julius Caesar. I’m curious as to what kind of person could rule the entire world.
What would be the dream holiday, and who would you go with?
I loved Paris and only spent 4 days there. And I went by myself. I discovered that I loved traveling alone. So, at this moment, I want to go back to France and see more of that country and I’d like to visit Italy as I’ve never been there. And I’m excited about traveling on my own and being alone on trips.
What do you like to watch on Tv?
I like documentaries and nonfiction. Lately, I’ve really been into historical movies or series.
What music do you like?
I like ratchet music. My favorite is hip hop and R&B, but I also like house music and EDM.
Do you support any charity?
Yes, I support Babes in Toyland which provides toys for children and support for our troops. I’ve also worked at other charity events for children.
3 things you can’t leave home without?
My purse, my phone, and my shoes.
