Anok Yai doesn’t really like the picture that is on the verge of changing her life.

She concedes it’s a high-quality photo and politely thanks the people who tell her she’s beautiful, but she was surprised by the photographer aiming his camera at her during Howard University’s homecoming celebration. To her, the resulting picture makes her look like a “deer in headlights.”

Tens of thousands of people disagree. In just more than a week, that photo has brought Yai Instagram fame and gained the attention of nearly a dozen modeling agencies, she said, including one that flew her up to New York for an interview on Tuesday.

She suddenly finds herself in new and exciting territory, as a dream that she chose not to pursue has ended up pursuing her instead.

Yai was born in Egypt, but her heritage is Sudanese and her family has lived in the United States since she was 2.
