1. What inspired you to get into this industry?

 Growing up I always loved being in front of the camera. My parents put me in modeling but as I got older I had to focus on school, so once I was of age and old enough to take my self to castings I started once again because my love for the camera never went away. What inspired me to do so is that I love the entire glam side getting all dollesd up but I love how in modeling you can potray and even tell a stroy with a simple photo, no words just a photo. There is no greater feeling to me then seeing my self on print . I could do it everyday all day.

2. How long have you been modeling

 I modeled when I was a little girl but the past 5 years is when i have been trying to make it big, more so the last two years is when I can say I have been modeling steady. People tell me all the time oh your a model, and yes I do it but I dont like to be given that title yet because to me when I start making a steady income from modeling, to me thats when I can be given the title as model. There are so many people out there that claim to be a model and there really not, k I dont want to put myself in that group.

3. Who is your favorite model?

I have so many favourite models there are so many gorgoues woman out there but the one who got me wanting to model again and till this day i love her would have to be Tyra Banks . I'm on the curvy side, no size 0 model, and very proud of it, and I started watching her on Americas next top model as a kid and i loved how she encouraged and embraced curves. I also really like Ana Cheri.

4. Tell us something random about yourself.

 I love to travel. I'm always traveling few times a year after modeling my next passion is travelling. Love to see what the world has to offer us. Experience new cultures and see just how beautiful this world is.

5. What are you most proud of?

There are so many things I'm proud of. Some have to do with things I've achieved personlly and others have to with things that I've achieved in terms of working hard for and buying them. But I don't like to talk about them cause I feel like I'm being full of myself and rubbing in peoples faces and I'm not like that, so what I can say that I'm most proud of and people can say are true if they have meet me is how humble and always happy I am. I'm probably one of the most happiest people anyone will ever meet. Never upset.

6. When it's all said and done, what do you want to be remembered as?

To be honest I don't know just yet what I want to be remembered as. I dont know the day of tomorrow and I dont know just yet what I want in life. Everyday I'm growing and learning new things about myself.
