Ms. Rogers is a model and rapper who blends the two worlds with ease. Once signed to Ford Models, she starred in DKNY’s spring 2015 advertising campaign and walked in the brand’s runway show. She has also released several wittily incisive hip-hop singles online, including the viral hits “Selfie” and “Glen Coco,” and performs regularly with ASAP Rocky’s hip-hop collective ASAP Mob.

At 14, Ms. Rogers was discovered by a Ford modeling scout at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, N.J. She was signed the next week, and did catalog work for the agency for three years. At age 15, she approached the rapper ASAP Yams on Twitter and asked to be his intern; they met up and became friends instead. ASAP Yams encouraged her to write her own rhymes, and she began releasing singles and performing with the ASAP Mob. “He probably felt cool that this little high school girl wanted to follow him around,” she said with a laugh.
