Henessy complexion, beautiful smile, chinky eyes and a go-getter are all the things that make up Quay Adore. I recently had the pleasure of speaking with her. Quay’s story touched my heart and I’m 100% sure it will touch yours. Here it is…
"Two years ago I was homeless on the streets of New York...I don't mean bouncing from house to house...I mean literally on the streets homeless...A lot of days I didn't know where my next meal was coming from or where I would lay my head...I was going shelter to shelter...Sometime I would ride the train from Queens to Canarsie just to get a nap in...To make matters worse I was being abused physically and mentally everyday by the guy I was dating at the time...A lot of people asked why wouldn't I just leave...But if you ever been in an abusive relationship you know it’s not that easy...Plus he was the reason I was there...I had family that was willing to take me in but I was too caught up in being a "Ride Or Die"...The abuse got so bad sometimes I would pray that God never woke me up...I would also pray and ask God to have mercy on me, to give me the strength to make it through the day, watch over me, and to send me back to guy that had my heart (For I had left someone I loved to be with someone I liked thinking the grass was greener)...This went on for months...Same prayer Same results...I got to the point where I started to doubt God...One day the guy I was with got upset about me calling home...He sent me and my phone flying across the room...I began to cry out "God where are you when I need you the most, I thought you would never leave me nor forsake me, why did you leave me all alone, can you see I need you more now than ever?"...His response was God been stop giving a f***...A few months later I ended up back home and away from him...I had stopped praying and my life spiraled out of control...I ended up so depressed...I gave God 7 days before I was going to commit suicide...On the Third day He sent my Guardian angel Sheena Shepherd...Me and Sheena had not been friends before...In fact she didn't even like me...But God! She started speaking life into me...And brought me to Kingdom Restoration World Ministries. Now when I look back on that time period in my life only one thing comes to mind..."Lord, You told me when I decided to follow You, You would walk and talk with me all the way. But I'm aware that during the most troublesome times of my life there is only one set of footprints. I just don't understand why, when I need you most, you leave me." He whispered, "My precious child, I love you and will never leave you, never, ever, during your trials and testings’’. When you saw only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you." When I didn't have a roof over my head I had shelter from abandon cars to pissy hallways...When I didn't know where my next meal was coming I had something to eat everyday even if it was just candy to keep my blood sugar up...When I was being abused he was unknowingly changing me from my destructive ways...And Not only did God send me the man I loved back to me...I married him. “
After I joined the church I got offered to do a photo-shoot for an old friend who was a DJ .I posted the pictures online and trusted god would find me my next gig. For a while I was getting calls but eventually the call slowed down. I eventually decided that I was going to give up modeling and that same day I was called to do a runway show. "
