"...At 17 years old, while walking through the turnstiles at Six Flags Great Adventures, Ebanks was scouted by an agent from Elite Model Management. Ebanks had worked with some of the world's most noted photographers, including Peter Lindbergh, Bruce Weber, Steven Klein, Carter Smith and Mikael Jansson, and for some of the most quintessential American fashion campaigns, including Ralph Lauren, Abercrombie & Fitch, Levi's and Tommy Hilfiger.

Ebanks is currently working as a model for Victoria's Secret. She had previously done work for their Ipex Bra line, before being signed.

She and fellow up-and-coming model Izabel Goulart made their major d├ębut in the 2005 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. She is now officially one of the Victoria's Secret Angels.
