1. How did you get into modeling?
I’ve always had a passion for photography and fashion and actually wanted to be behind the camera instead of in front BUT after hearing different people tell me I had the look for modeling I started to pursue it. So I linked up with a photographer in my area and we started to shoot and develop chemistry, put some stuff on IG and my facebook and people started to take note and took me seriously. That really built my confidence and actually got me published in my first magazine. (obvious mag) and from there Taylor scouted me and here we are.
2. What are you doing if you are not modeling?
Either at work, playing the xbox which is my favorite thing to do haha or at the gym trying to get this body right.
3. Whats your most embarrassing moment?
Ughhhhhh welllll in middle school I was using the bathroom and my basketball teammate decided to grab me from the back and shake me as I peed and I peed allll over myself and new clothes. Didn’t go to school for a couple days after that one lol CRINGE!!!
4. What do you love on Social Media? – What do you hate on Social Media?
I love the fact that social media helps you make lots of good connections with people and create real bonds and relationships professionally and professionally with whom you probably would have never met in real life, it shows how diverse we are but also how alike we are. And I hate the façade that sites like IG and twitter show. On social media everybody is rich, doing big things, and living their life to the fullest at an early age and then there is me, someone whose trying to figure life out, figure myself out and be successful for myself and family. I be scrolling down my timeline like what the hell am I doing wrong, and why I can’t hurry up and be where these young successful people in the industry are. And I start to question and doubt myself and it really gets to me. So sometimes periodically ill take a break from social media and I have to remind myself that people are only going to post the good in their lives, not the bad. So I have to remind myself that often. Moral is DO NOT compare yourself or your life to someone else soley based off their instagram feed. Its just a façade.
5. Describe your personal style?!
Ima simple person when it comes to fashion, and style. Im a sneaker head and I love the aesthetic of 80s and 90s style so just some jordans, nikes and a t shirt / jeans. SIMPLE. At this very moment ive been rocking a lot of vintage guess, tommy graphic tees and vintage hiphop graphic tees with some jordans or nikes.
6. Favorite part of your body?!
