Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you do when you’re not modeling?
I usually have a lot going on even when I’m not modeling. When I’m not working, I spend as much time as I can with my son, I’m in school for Accounting so I study, I take acting classes, and travel.
How did you get into the modeling industry?
I actually started modeling when I was 12. My cousin had an agency called Starbright Teens so I started modeling for her for a couple years and gradually stopped. I got back into it almost 2 years ago when a friend of mine introduced me to a really talented photographer. I’ve been modeling ever since.
What would you say is the biggest misconception about you?
Probably that I’m ice cold and that there isn’t much behind my looks. I guess I can come off a bit standoffish (or cold) at first because I like to listen and learn when meeting new people. They’re definitely misconceptions because I’m a goofball 80% of the time, I like to have fun. And I’m a nerd; I’m majoring in Accounting aspiring to be a CPA, I read a lot, and I’m extremely ambitious.
What would you say was your greatest accomplishment in modeling? What would you say was your greatest accomplishment outside of modeling?
Well not falling in 6 inch heels is always an accomplishment in itself [Laughs] My greatest accomplishment in modeling was probably after my second photoshoot—I also discovered my passion for it since I’ve always been somewhat reserved and “safe” with my decisions. Modeling has allowed me to discover different sides to myself I never knew existed through expression. I can portray a different persona with each concept/project. My greatest accomplishment outside of modeling is my son. He’s my motivation, my heart, and definitely makes me a better person. He’s the reason I dream so big. I want him to live his life with no regrets so I lead by example.
Who is your favorite Hip-Hop artist out now? Why?
Kendrick Lamar, aside from his music and his lyrics being relatable, I’m in love with his drive and dedication to his craft. He treats every project like it’s the cover of Vogue, it’s never half assed.
Who is your celebrity crush, and why?
My female celebrity crush is Kim Kardashian because she kills the fashion game and doesn’t care what people think. Yes, I have a Kimmie Krush.
My male celebrity crush is Michael B Jordan because he’s cute of course. No, he’s a great actor and is completely down to earth, which is very attractive.
What are your biggest turn-ons?
Ambition, self-motivation, modesty and honesty.
What are your biggest turn-offs?
Laziness, excessive cockiness, and I do not like obnoxious, that’s an instant turn off.
What qualities do you look for in a man?
I like a man who knows what he wants in life and is/has taken the steps to get there, a man who’s confident; confident enough to not need validation from anyone or anywhere. Someone humble, loyal, and is a natural leader. Followers are frowned upon.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In 5 years I see myself with my MBA either working as a CPA with my own CPA firm or on the cover of Vogue and further living my dream as a model and actress.
What is a Fun Fact about yourself?
I love the ocean, like if I could live on the beach or go everyday I would. Since I can’t, I travel a lot, where ever there’s a beach, I’m there! As long as my hair doesn’t get wet, I’ll stay in the water all day.
Any advice you would give women?
Don’t be afraid to dream big. Pursue what you’re passionate about no matter how long it takes for you to figure out what it is and don’t live with regrets. You miss out on 100% of the chances you don’t take.
