What have been your favorite modeling experiences so far?

There are so many to choose from! The top of the list is definitely getting to meet so many amazing people. Everyday within this industry you meet someone new on set, through social media or at a casting. I have yet to meet someone who hasn’t inspired me in a way.

What is your personal fashion aesthetic?

I’m a ‘less is more’ kind of girl. I love simple makeup with a lip if I’m feeling fancy. A good pair of jeans and a nice t-shirt goes a long way.

If you were not modeling, what field would you be working in?

I’d probably be a Psychologist. I love to help people, while lending a listening ear.

What do you like to do on your off time?

I hang out with my family! There’s so many of us and it’s nice to get together.

Has there been someone in your life that has influenced you, in fashion or otherwise?

My grandmother and mother have influenced me the most. My grandma is this tiny lady with such a strong presence. Anyone who knows her loves her! She’s herself without any apologies. My mother is the same way. They always made sure my sisters and I knew why it was so important to love ourselves first.

What is your advice to aspiring models?

Love who you are and remain positive! In today’s world we’re fed so much bull crap through social media, television shows and advertisements. Don’t try to mimic what you see. You get a lot farther when the authentic you is front and center.
