Who is Bryiana Noelle Flores?
Bryiana is a model and entrepreneur, but perhaps best recognized as the wife of Rob Dyrdek, the famous producer, and former professional skateboarder. She was born under the Zodiac sign Cancer on 21 July 1991, in Salinas, California, USA. Her ethnic background is quite interesting and diverse; she is a mix of Chinese, Spanish, Caucasian, Filipino, and Cherokee ethnicity. As of 2021, she is 29 years old.
Early Life, Family and Education
For many, the life story of Bryiana serves as an inspiration reflecting how one can overcome various obstacles and make dreams come true. At the age of 11, Bryiana was diagnosed with a terminal blood disease, and was given a couple of days to live. There were two options – bone marrow transplantation surgery or treating it with medication; apparently it was Bryiana who chose the latter.
At that time, The Make-A-Wish foundation came in and granted her wish to swim with the dolphins in Hawaii. In her introduction video, she said: “That changed everything for me. I didn’t know it then, but that was my first introduction to the law of attraction. I wanted to live so badly. I wanted more experiences like this. I wanted to have a normal life and be a normal kid.”
Luckily, the treatment with medication worked, and Bryiana made a full recovery. As she was growing up she dreamt of pursuing a modeling career, but was often discouraged. As a teenager, she was bullied for her weight and height, so her idea of becoming a model rather met with disapproval and ridicule.
During her high school days, she regularly attended pageants and got introduced to the sisterhood. Bryana said: “I finally felt like I belong somewhere. That’s when I felt like my best self.
Basically I took everything that I loved about pageants, the sisterhood, the community involvement and modeling and chasing after the big dreams. I used all of these things to craft my own happily ever after.”
Career as model and entrepreneur
In 2008 she won the main title in the “Miss Teen of the Nation”, followed by another win of the “Miss California Teen” in 2010. Having scooped these titles, Bryiana became even more confident in pursuing her modeling career. Right after matriculating from high school in 2009, Bryiana moved to Los Angeles, where she landed her first modeling gigs. She caught the attention of a scout, and the rest is history. Soon she appeared in the “Playboy magazine, and her gorgeous photographs brought her the title of “Playmate of the Year”.
From that point, her career kept rising. In 2011 she participated in and won the “World’s Perfect Pageant”, which was one of her most notable wins given it further catapulted her into the world of supermodels. Today she is a very sought-after model, as she endorses various brands. In her introduction video, Bryana disclosed that the world of modeling also carries a dark side, as she became a victim of cyberbullies who would comment on her appearance. She said that she didn’t like the direction her life was going, and planned to change it. Everything changed quickly when she discovered network marketing.
Besides her successful modeling career, she has also dipped her toes into the world of entrepreneurs. As a vigorous advocate for women’s empowerment, in 2014 she created a beauty brand called “Iconic Beauty”, featuring a line of hair products such as shampoos, conditioners and texturizing sprays.
Having participated in numerous pageants, Bryiana used that knowledge and applied it to her brand, which she calls “a new kind of girl gang”. As a member of this “gang”, one can learn how to feel and look good, emphasizing the essential values, which are inspire, empower and transform. At the moment, Bryiana serves as the president of the brand.
