Glady Payano is the reigning Miss New York Ambassador US Nation 2021 Titleholder. Glady began her journey with the Miss US Nation Pageant after casting to walk for the Super Chic New York Fashion Week Summer 2021, she was offered to compete for the Miss New York East Coast US Nation 2021 Pageant and was awarded the state pageantry title of Miss New York Ambassador US Nation 2021.

Glady began modeling at the age of 11. She has participated in several runway & prom fashion shows. She also was a background actor in Power Book ll: Raising Kanan, and she graduated from Barbizon Modeling and acting school. Her family  and friends have always encouraged her to be in the fashion industry since she was five years old. She enjoyed posing and taking pictures, and showing everyone her walk. She followed her dreams because she was inspired.

“It takes a lot of effort to express your true self in the modeling industry. Modeling is all about how you style yourself, posture, carry yourself, and be confident”, says Glady.

Gladys’ title has helped her take an advancement with modeling career by having the opportunity to use all the advantages Miss US Nation offers, such as walking for Fashion Weeks with Super Chic Fashion Week worldwide- her most recent runway appearance was Super Chic New York Fashion Week Fall 2021. Glady hopes to do more pageants and build on her title.

Gladys’ goals include; Improving her modeling skills because there is always something new to learn, Completing college with a degree in the fashion business, and becoming a top petite model. She also aspires to share her modeling knowledge with others so they can learn from her expertise.

As Miss New York Ambassador US Nation 2021, she would love to raise awareness for children in the Dominican Republic to have access to proper education and proper school supplies. As a Dominican native, she witnessed how hard it is for kids to get the education they deserve because they can’t afford it, so she would love to help all kids in need.

Glady hopes to model for Prada, Gucci, Marc Jacobs, Versace, and Calvin Klein in the future. A stereotype she would like to break; since she’s 5’2, she feels height requirements are unfair for the runway. In her opinion, we should all be treated equally no matter what our weight, or height is. Besides, clothes are for everyone of all shapes and sizes. Glady believes every runway should be accessible to a variety of heights and sizes- not just one.

What makes Glady unique is her ability to help others feel secure within themselves. As a confident, outgoing woman- she enjoys meeting new people.
