Edmond, Tyrone


Edmond, Tyrone. International male model – Born in Cap-Haïtien in 1977. His mother died when he was nine years old, and he was raised by an US American missionary family. He moved to Miami, Florida, when he was 15 years old, and for some years studied at university. He continued his studies when he moved to Flatbush, Brooklyn, New York, where he lived with his uncle. In 1999, with the encouragement of his friends, he went to a modelling firm called Q Models and, as he says, “Ever since then things have been poppin’.”

Soon after his career as a model took off, he started the One Heart Foundation to help impoverished children around the world. He says the accent of the foundation is on education. “If you give food and no education then there is no point. Education sometimes is more important than a piece of meat and bread.”
