In 2000, at the age of 17, while walking through the turnstiles at Six Flags Great Adventure, Ebanks was scouted by an agent from Elite Model Management.
Ebanks was discovered at a Six Flags at a time when agencies still used polaroids, and didn’t tap women shorter than 5’9” to model unless they were heroin chic.
But with a standout face and a naturally lean frame thanks to a fast metabolism, she was easily identified as a head-turner. And even though she was too young at the time to tap into her sex appeal, her confidence was pretty high.
Ebanks has worked for high fashion brands Neiman Marcus and Ralph Lauren, and appeared in magazines such as the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, Vogue, and Glamour, but she is best known for her work with Victoria’s Secret, as one of the brand’s “Angels” from 2005 to early 2009.
