For Tehmeena Afzal, timing has been the essential element in her career. Better known as Meena amongst her thousands of fans, the Queens, NY native got her start in the entertainment industry as an entrepreneur before stumbling upon her true calling, modeling.
“I used to own one of the biggest mixtape websites,” Meena explained in a recent interview with 24HourHipHop.com. “Back then I was the only female doing something like that and it put my face out there. Once people started hearing about what I was doing, they featured me in magazines or on their mixtape covers.” During her time as an internet queenpin, Meena’s site MixFlavas.com was crowned Mixtape Website of the Year in both 2006 and 2007. The recognition soon opened doors for a bubbling modeling career. Meena’s exotic look was sought after for hundreds of mixtape covers and it wasn’t long before the media took an interest. In 2008, the outgoing beauty was featured in Bachelor Magazine’s 20 Sexiest Women of the Year, Featured on Kanye West's website in his blog, as well as King Magazine’s Web Girl of the Week and an appearance in 50 Cent's "I'll do anything" video, 50 Cents "Ok, You're right", Grafh's "Call me up" Video, Trav's "Ride the wave" video and The Dream ft. Rick Ross, Juelz Santana, Fabolous and Ludacris Rockin That Thing Remix" video. Also member of the CORE Models, Meena was a two-time invited guest to BET’s Rap City, once as a model for Three 6 Mafia’s segment, and again for an appearance with Chamillionaire. Though her looks may gain the initial attention, it’s Meena’s confident personality and intellect that keep people interested. Always her own boss, she started a successful Ebay business in high school prior to the mixtape website, and currently works in car sales. A softball player since the age of 8, Meena’s competitive spirit earned her a full athletic scholarship to college. After winning countless sports awards, Meena obtained her Bachelor’s degree in graphic design from the New York Institute of Technology. Now that her professional goals have come full circle, Meena is focused on expanding her name. She hopes to become a valuable marketing tool for clothing lines and cosmetics companies, as well as explore her acting options. With a soon to be released calendar and an abundance of new opportunities, Meena’s timing seems to be just perfect.
