NEW YORK — The perennial challenge for any model in fashion is how to be distinguished from all the other beautiful faces. The barrier to entry is formidable, but for anyone who has won the proverbial genetic lottery, getting signed by a modeling agency is just the beginning. Ralph Souffrant has no trouble distinguishing himself, on the contrary, he is quick to remind viewers he too is a human being, one eager to say hello. Standing out has never been difficult for Ralph, what with his chiseled muscles and abundantly freckled skin and all. Born in Saint-Marc, Haiti, Ralph moved to Brooklyn at an early age and spent his formative years there. Ralph was eventually discovered in a city park in Brooklyn by a photographer. Not long after that Ralph inked his first modeling contract and eventually made his runway debut for YEEZY Season 3. These days Ralph is signed with Next and when he’s not shooting, he is studying acting. He looks up to Dwayne Johnson, whom he regards in high esteem. Quick study that Ralph is, viewers and admirers alike can expect many distinguished performances to come.
