New York's Sexiest Hidden Treasure featuring Tehmeena Afzal
Usually when you think of car sales a vision of some college kid or sleezy over aggressive guy in a bad suit makes its way into your mind. So yes I was stunned to find one of the few exceptions came in the form of this sex symbol from NY. Tehmeena is obviously not your typical model. She comes off with a sense of down home yet other worldly charm.
Born and raised in Queens, currently she lives in Long Island nevertheless she reps Queens emphatically. She loves to eat in Lower Manhattan’s Little Italy where eating is a passion and a pastime. Tehmeena is a true New Yorker. She loves everything about it and fully recognizes the fact that she gets to live in the one place everyone wants to visit.
Originally a tomboy who played softball in college on an athletic scholarship, modeling was something that was constantly suggested to her by many alike. She stayed in college eventually earning a bachelors degree in graphic design while playing softball as a pitcher. I can think of a dozen jokes about girls and softball but I’ll cut her a break.
Once done with college and softball she decided to try modeling. Her ethnicity and exotic looks came in high demand because it set her apart from the other models. She also has something in her past that further separated her from the rest, she actually ran an award winning mixtape website a few years back. Of course she developed a ton of connections in the industry. But only through her modeling did she get to meet her biggest connection yet….. HTM.
