Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you do when you're not modeling?
If I’m not spending time with my family and loved ones, I’m probably shopping. I’m like a shopaholic.
How did you get into the modeling industry?
I started modeling when I was about 14. It just always been a passion of mine and something I loved doing even as a kid. So I told my mom that's what I wanted to do. She would put me in different modeling schools, and take me to different castings, and photo shoots and I just stuck with it ever since. Then as I got older I started venturing into doing my own thing.
What would you say is the biggest misconception about you?
When people see me they have this misconception that I’m stuck up or conceited when actually I’m the complete opposite. I am very humble and down to earth. That's why you should never judge a book by its cover.
What would you say was your greatest accomplishment in modeling? What would you say was your greatest accomplishment outside of modeling?
My greatest accomplishment in modeling recently is being a published model featured in magazines such as FBM, Dulce and doing my first cover for OneTen. Also being featured on sites such as Thisis50, Jack Thriller, Ggurls, and now XXL. My greatest accomplishment outside of modeling is my growth just as a person. Im proud of the person I am becoming.

Just an all around boss in general. Someone who is enterprising.

Someone that is not driven and not doing anything with his life.
What qualities do you look for in a man?
Business savvy, smart, funny, ambitious
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Owning a couple businesses, and venturing into my other passions that I love doing as well which is acting, singing, and dance. I don’t want to limit myself to doing just one thing.
What is a Fun Fact about yourself?
I’m sometimes shy and reserved when I first meet people, then when they get to know me its a whole different story.
Any advice you would give women trying to enter the modeling business?
Stick to your dreams, and never let anyone tell you what you can or cannot do. You can do whatever you put your mind too.
