Denver, Colorado native Millana Snow discovered her passion for the stage and small screen at an early age. She was just four years old when she appeared in her first play; by age 14, she had starred in more than 20 productions, and served as the morning anchor for a local kids’ news show. After her family relocated to Houston, with Millana set to enter her freshmen year at Stephen F. Austin State University, she began modeling for local publications, designers and shows. Then, while working as a model for an international clothing line based in New York, Millana became inspired to discover the Big Apple for herself.  At 19, she moved to the city all on her own, sure that it was a place where she could follow her dreams. She was also determined to continue her education, and transferred to the City College University of New York. She graduated Cum Laude, receiving a degree in public relations and advertising, all while privately studying “The Method” with famed acting teacher Tony Greco, working for UPTOWN, Vibe and Z!NK magazines and appearing in various print, commercial and  TV spots. Just 10 days after graduating, Millana was cast as a model for the Emmy-award winning series Project Runway. After three months of filming, and making her debut at NY Fashion Week, she was named the show’s winning model alongside winning designer, Gretchen Jones. Millana currently works as a model, actress and on-camera personality, appearing in campaigns for brands such as Yves Saint Laurent, L’Oreal, and Cover Girl, and on TV shows for networks such as the CW, NBC, and HBO as well as host of the Webby Award winning travel show An entrepreneur and philanthropist, Millana is the co-founder and CEO of SERENE Social, a wellness, philanthropy and networking community exclusively for women.  She also volunteers with a number of nonprofits and charitable organizations and currently resides in NY.

  1. Hello Millana, I just recently moved to Houston and one day when I was “out” I met a young man named Ryan Patterson. He visited my modeling blog and later told me that he knew a young lady who had been on Project Runway. I am not sure where to begin but I have so many questions and no one to ask them to. I was wondering if I could start with you since I have no contact in the modeling business whatsoever. I hope this message finds you in good spirits and I hope to hear from you soon.

    • Def would love to help. I do know Ryan from high school! Ask away… perhaps we can make a blog post about it to help others with the same questions! Send me the questions to and let me know on here so I can be sure to look out for it!

    • Thank you so much! I have traveled on VERY small budgets before, I always encourage people to do the same… I will do a post on that for sure… also, have you read The Alchemist? I wrote a post about it… a great read for those who look to travel and expand themselves!

  2. It’s going to happen!! I am relocating to GA to obtain my M.F.A and see what modeling gigs and agency I can work with there. I have the emails that were sent to me as well. Can we plan for a web/email chat at the start of the year? Or would you like to iron out things prior?
