Early life

White was born in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. She worked as a retail manager before her stint on ANTM.[citation needed]

America's Next Top Model

White won the fourteenth cycle of America's Next Top Model. She received four consecutive first call-outs. She was never placed in the bottom two, making her the fourth winner to achieve this record, preceded by winners Jaslene Gonzalez, McKey Sullivan, and Nicole Fox. She won a total of four reward challenges. In the end, she was selected over runner-up Raina Hein, because the judges thought White would have a better chance at an international career.[3]

She has walked the runway for top New York designer Nicole Miller in New Zealand Fashion Week.[4]

White has also modeled for top designer Betsey Johnson and friend Sergio Guadarramo's collection "Celestino Collection".[5]

In 2011, she walked the runway for BET's Rip The Runway.[citation needed]
