Our latest Meet the Muse installment spotlights Selah Marley, daughter of musicians Rohan Marley and Lauryn Hill. Though music may be pouring throughout Selah's veins, the 17-year-old NYC native is currently cutting her teeth in the industry as a model – walking for the likes of Kanye in the rapper's YEEZY Season 4 show to posing in campaigns for adidas and Calvin Klein.

We asked Selah a series of questions to find out more about her personal style, her music tastes and more. Read what she had to say below, then be sure to peep our last MuseRaenee Sydney.

Who or what are you currently inspired by?

Truth be told, I’m inspired by the idea of infinity; the meaning of energy, the nature of consciousness. I’m inspired by life.

How has your style changed over the years?

I began to play with my style more over time, and I just use it as a form of expression, so how I dress reflects how I feel to some extent.

Describe your current style.

My current style is a bit of everything. It kind of ranges from tomboy to super dolled up (heels and tings) to everything in between. Really, I just like to have fun with it and get super cute. I don’t really wear makeup, so my style speaks for me.

Tell us about your day to day. 

My day to day really involves school, a little bit of socializing, thinking and sometimes I do fun, creative projects; but that kind of goes hand in hand with socializing.

Dream collaboration? (With whom and what would you create?)

I think my dream collaboration would either be with Travis Scott or Kanye West. I don’t even know what we’d create, I just have faith that it’d be some beautiful art.

What is the greatest accomplishment of your life so far?

I don’t have one specific accomplishment, but I’m very proud of where I’ve come as a person in my career, my academics, and spiritually. I’m finding myself and it’s an endless journey, but I’m happy with my path.

What is your most treasured possession? (also why?)

My most treasured possessions are my diaries. In my writing, I’m able to reach a level of vulnerability and expression that I haven’t quite mastered with my speaking yet. I feel like I’m able to express my true Self in my writing.

What skill do you possess that people wouldn’t expect from you?

I’m insanely empathetic and intuitive. I can be very quiet and reserved, so I guess people don’t expect much of me at first, but I am very psychoanalytical.

What album do you currently have on repeat?

Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight by Travis Scott!

Where do you want to be in the next five years?

On a physical level, I have no idea, but on an emotional level, I just want to be happy. I want to live in a state of eternal bliss. I’m not too sure of how to get there yet, but I know I’m on the path.
