You just never know where or how the breakthrough will come! Such is the case for the 19-year old college student, Anokyai who stopped and posed for a photographer during Howard Homecoming‘s Yardfest.

The melanin beauty stood in a simple pose wearing a black top, jean shorts and black leggings as Steve ‘theSUNK’ Hall photographer snapped away. Little did she know the photo would lead to a flood of modeling offers in her inbox.

“It wasn’t until later that evening that I picked up my phone and found hundreds of Instagram notifications piling in,” Yai told Yahoo. Soon afterwards, the clicks, likes and followers went through the roof. She currently has over 70,000 Instagram followers and counting!

The South Sudan beauty, who is a Biochemistry student at Plymouth State University signed with Next Models, an international modeling agency who signed her right away after the Instagram pics. Not bad for a girl who decided to attend Howard’s Homecoming with a friend to just hang out. Congrats!
