STATS: 33DD-25-42

CAREER HIGHLIGHT: “Feature[d] in Open Your Eyes Magazine (OYE). [And Being featured] in Impalas [Magazine], Streetlow [Magazine], and GGurls.”

FAVORITE ARTIST: “Some of my favorite rappers [are] Tupac, Jay-Z, Fat Joe and Diddy. However, my hometown favorites include Kevlar and Mic Rose of Hustle Gang, Nump and E-40. I am a die hard R&B fan, and love ’90s oldies such as Jon B., Jagged Edge, Boyz II Men, PM Dawn, Shai, Hi-Five, Tony Toni Tone, H-Town and Jodeci.”

FAVORITE VIDEO: “My favorite video, hands down, would have to be LL Cool J ‘Around the Way Girl.’ That song is me all the way around. Usher’s video, ‘Daddy’s Home’ is super sexy and Robin Thicke[‘s] ‘Sex Therapy’ is amazing.”

DREAM MODELING JOB: “As far as music videos, my dream job would be [to be] the lead model in a music video with a hot Latin artist such as Fat Joe, Marc Anthony or Wisin and Yandel. I would also live and die to feature in a Jay-Z, Fabulous, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Eminem or Diddy video. As far as magazines, I would love to make cover of XXL, KING, Maxim or FHM. A feature would even complete my shooting star wish!”

SEX APPEAL: “I am comfortable in my own skin, which I feel makes me sexy. I am as real as it gets! On a day-to-day, you can catch me in sweat pants and a t-shirt, but it’s my confidence that pulls it off. I know that I can go home and throw on a “freak ’em dress” and feel just as sassy! My exotic mix and my booty also helps *wink*.”

TURN-ON: “I love watching [men] play Madden until midnight, cooking and cleaning up after [him]. I am so interested in [a man’s] fantasy football league. I love rubbing [his] back and feet after a hard game of basketball. It’s so sexy.”
