Born in the year 1984, Wendy Wiltz is and African-American beauty from New Orleans, Louisiana. She started her modeling career when she was still a student at St. Frances Xavier Cabrini High School, where she engaged in such sports as track and field and swimming. She was also a member of the National Art Honor Society, Spanish Honor Society, Renaissance Club and Students Against Drugs and Alcohol. When she was in her second year, a local modeling agency recruited her and immediately she was chosen to appear on a "Hot and Spicy Pringles" commercial. She then went on to become the spokesmodel for the hair shows of Aguage, Sebastian, and L 'OREAL. In 2001, she graduated from high school and went on to major in Interior Design at Louisiana State University. In 2004, she modeled for the Johnson Publishing Company's Ebony Fashion Fair Tour. She also appeared in several print ads and fashion shows for designer Harold Clarke.
Despite her extensive background in modeling, Wendy was the second to be voted off from America's Next Top Model, Cycle 6. Shortly before she came on the show, Hurricane Katrina hit her hometown of New Orleans, leaving thousands homeless and without proper food and shelter. Wendy was so worried about her family that not only did she spend a lot of time on the phone with them, she also lost most of her concentration and focus, resulting in her poor performances during the first two photo shoots.
Being eliminated from the show did not discourage Wendy from pursuing her dream of becoming a supermodel. In interviews she did with the New York Post and The Times Picayune, she assured her fans that they would be seeing more of her in the years to come. She then lived in New York City, where she became an employee of an Abercrombie and Fitch store. She then became signed with Dan GA in Atlanta and Ratlukid.
