When life hands you lemons, start a modeling career. That’s the attitude of Tatyana Rhodes, the organizer of the now infamous McKinney, Texas, pool party that led to the resignation of a local police officer.
Rhodes, 21, made headlines earlier this month when her pool party ended in a violent clash between the officer and several of the teens in attendance. After she was caught in the spotlight, Tay Brown of Atlanta-based A.K.A. Tay Photography took notice of her. He flew to Texas to meet her and snapped her first professional modeling photos.

In a press release on Wednesday, Brown said Rhodes is taking the “negative attention of the unfortunate McKinney pool party events” and turning them “into a positive jumpstart for her modeling career.”

“As a model, Tatyana is committed to using her exposure and fame to help bring about change in the community as well as to show others you should never let negative events in your life keep you from pursuing your dreams,” Brown said in the press release.
