Tell us about yourself, in your own words. Who are you? What do you do?
I’m a survivor. Yes, I’m beautiful, sexy and intelligent, but my drive is what stands out. I have the ability to make the impossible, possible. I’m an ambitious, gifted, independent woman that works hard for everything I want or need. I can be silly, fun or flirtatious, but for the most part I’m about my money. I’m a model that’s working to make “being me” my career description. Currently I am a hostess.
What’s the one thing you want people to remember about you?
Besides how diverse my look is? My ambition. I go hard for what I believe in despite any opinion. I set limits and don’t take no for an answer.
What was your best modeling experience? What was your worst modeling experience?
My best modeling experience so far had been working with Kay Slay for Straight Stunin’ #26. He’s very professional. There’s no awkwardness or unfairness when it comes to dealing with him or the magazine. My worst experience involved photography. I had an issue getting photos that I took months prior. This is a common problem in this industry, but from those experiences I’ve learned how to control situations in the future.
What would you like to do in modeling that you haven’t done yet?
My first cover of a magazine. It’s a great accomplishment, but of course it has to be for the right magazine.
Where do you see yourself in five years?
In five years I see myself with modeling as my career, acting as another talent I’ve pursued and built a separate platform in. My business or investments will be operating and generating a profit. But most importantly I will have a great résumé because I plan to have my goals achieved by then. My fan base will be strong, and I will be very relevant.
If you could give one piece of advice to an aspiring model, what would it be, and why?
Use trust wisely because people will try to take advantage of you or belittle you. It’s important to always remain strong. Make your decisions carefully; weigh your options. Be prepared for hate, lies, disappointments or setbacks as it comes with the industry. Most of all, be patient… things don’t happen over night.
