Cora's mother convinced her to enter the Guyane-Antilles Elite Model Look contest in 2008, which Selina Khan won.

She did not place very highly, but she had "the look."

Rumor is that Croa was spotted by the same agent who discovered Sigrid Agren and Selina Khan. That is the rumor, anyway.

Cora had this to say in Interview Magazine about her decision to become a model:
When I realized that I wasn't ugly, because I really thought I was. Because the beauty cliché in the Caribbean is short, really curvy girls. I was really tall and skinny, and I wouldn't have boyfriends or anything, and everybody would make fun of me. It was a mess. I was always trying to make myself look shorter. So my mother dragged me to this casting that was for Elite. She was like, "Look, there's other girls like you. And they're doing a beauty casting. You should be proud." And I was like, okay, okay, maybe she's right. Then once I got picked, everybody was like, "Oh my god, you're so beautiful. Oh my god, blah, blah, blah."

In any event, the Model Look competition led Cora to sign with New York Models in 2010.

Cora moved to New York that spring and had her debut at the spring Christian Cota show in New York during that year's NYC Fashion Week.
