Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you do when you’re not modeling?
I like to think of myself as the best of both world. A little bit of up north and a little bit of down south. Being I was born in NJ and spent part of my life there. Then I moved down south and been here ever since. When I’m not modeling I’m spending time with my family and working on other projects. Just keeping busy and trying to keep getting to this money.
How did you get into the modeling industry?
It kind of just fell into my lap so to speak. My good friend talked me into going to a casting call. I had no experience and had never done any kind of modeling before. But the people at the casting saw the potential in me and they casted me. After that things just started coming to me. Different opportunities start popping up and I fell love.
What would you say is the biggest misconception about you?
That I’m stuck up. I’m really not. I just don’t deal with a lot of people or do a lot of talking. But once you get to know me I’m a really fun down to earth person.
What would you say was your greatest accomplishment in modeling? What would you say was your greatest accomplishment outside of modeling?
To me my greatest accomplishment was getting in the Jet Magazine as beauty of the week. To hear my grandma say to me “I’ve been getting Jet Magazine all my life never did I think I would see my baby in there.” To me that was my biggest accomplishment period. Just to have my grandma so proud of me.

Any advice you would give women?
Always stay true to yourself. Don’t let anybody try tell you, you would be better or make it further if you become like somebody else or something you know you’re not. Always be you, it’s the best thing you have to present to the world.
