It’s ninety degrees out, and it’s another beautiful day in the state where it rains all the time (not really), the place where we like to call home, Seattle. Any local will tell you that it’s these Seattle summer days that us locals live for and today is no exception.
Its 3PM on a sunny day in Downtown Seattle, just where we arranged to meet. As I approach I see beautiful local Ms. Kimberly Ann sipping on her Ice Cold Green Tea Shaken Lemonade doing the very same thing enjoying the rays of a beautiful Seattle day. You may have seen Kimberly at various events and car shows in sunny Southern California, and make no mistake you weren’t imagining, this local beauty makes trips often between her homes away from home. We got a chance to catch up with Kimberly Ms. NWMotiv August for the day!
Name: Kimberly Ann
Article & Interview by Mario Chan – Photography by Andrew Yang
NWMotiv: Kimberly! I know that you call yourself a Seattle local, but I swear we keep seeing you in SoCal as well! Tell me we’re not seeing twins?
Kimberly: Hehe no, you’re not…but wouldn’t it be real scary if there were 2 of me? We would all be in trouble!! |Laughs| I’m always traveling to Cali to do photo events/shoots with my webmaster for my site, www.sweetkimberly.com and attend car shows
NWMotiv: A girl with two homes it sounds like something I’m sure every one of us can deal with! So are you originally from Seattle?
Kimberly: Originally from the South Tacoma area…but you can catch me in Seattle often!
NWMotiv: Sounds like you’re always on the road! How is life as a model traveling all the time?
Kimberly: It’s wonderful…I absolutely love meeting new people, and when the fans recognize you at car shows, it’s the best feeling!
NWMotiv: Before all this, how did you get started in to modeling?
Kimberly: I got approached at a Seattle nightclub by a local photographer, who’s girlfriend was starting up a GoGo and modeling group…met with them, took a few pictures…and it took off from there!
NWMotiv: Well we know that you absolutely love your fans at events! Tell us about some of your favorite cars from the scene!
Kimberly: I love Infiniti G35′s and G37′s…and of course, the crowd favorite… the Nissan R35 GTR!
NWMotiv: The GTR is always a favorite! As I’m sure seeing all these nice rides on a daily basis they probably seem a bit on the norm, what does a guy have to do to get your attention?
Kimberly: For a guy to get my attention, just be genuine and have a nice smile!
NWMotiv: What are some of your absolute turnoffs?
Kimberly: If you stink…that’s a BIG no-no. So I’m not fond of smokers for that very reason. If you seem kinda rude and have bad manners…ugh…there’s no point in trying to talk to me.
NWMotiv: Fair enough! What are some of your guilty pleasures that your fans may not know about?
Kimberly: I’m a junk food fanatic! I love ice-cream and candy! Another one of my guilty pleasures is watching reality TV!! |Smiles|
NWMotiv: Reality TV Shows huh? We’re not judging we promise! What are some of the favorites and please tell me that you don’t believe The Hills is real (not that we watch it or anything)!
Kimberly: I love The Hills, The City, Jersey Shore…etc…and I refuse to believe that The Hills isn’t real!
NWMotiv: Since you’re back and forth so often, when you are here, what are some of your favorite places to eat when in Seattle?
Kimberly: My favorite places to eat in Seattle are any along the water, places along Pike Place are good too, and of course Chinatown. I don’t have a favorite, I enjoy them all!
NWMotiv: I don’t know about you but I’m ready for an early lunch. Any final thoughts and shout outs?
Kimberly: Thank you NWMotiv.com for featuring me as Ms August, it’s been a pleasure!! Don’t forget to follow me on Twitter, www.twitter.com/_sweetkimberly and also check out my personal site, http://www.sweetkimberly.com!
