Having a dream of becoming a doctor, Diallo started shadowing physicians and she realized that it wasn’t for her. She couldn’t stand the sight of people in pain, seeing flesh, knives and needles. She moved back to NYC and took a break to figure herself out.
She started working at Abercrombie & Fitch as a model where she later (within a month) got promoted to assistant manager. She started test shooting with different photographers (just for fun) and she realized how much fun it was. One photographer reached out to her for work and accepted the offer in April 2015 after turning him down on multiple times.
In August 2015, she was sent a direct message on Instagram telling her she had gone viral on Tumblr. Inspired by the comments, she reached out to the photographer did another phoshoot and posted the photos on Tumblr.
