1. What inspired you to get into this industry?
This industry is a creative form of art to me that allows us to use our energy and body language to tell a story. And I like that. I love art and telling stories. I also love the different opportunities to work and build with other creative minds to make big things happen. You can definitely meet some amazing people in this industry.
2. How long have you been modeling?
Since I was 16.
3. Who is your favorite model?
4. Tell us something random about yourself.
I enjoy laughing at myself and making funny videos on snapchat. Lol. -
5. What are you most proud of?
My culture. I'm both Filipino and American. My family has a non profit Filipino organization that helps raise money for local and international charitable organizations, or families that are in need of help. It's the most rewarding thing to be able to give back to our community as well as the country that I am from; the Philippines. I'm also the pageant director that run the Ms. FilAm USA beauty pageant through our organization (Filipino American Social Club/FASC) which allows women to compete for a title that serves the Filipino - American community. The winner gets to go back to the Philippines to help needy families and experience our native culture. I think it's important to always remember where you come from and to be able to give back. Really means so much to me.
6. When it's all said and done, what do you want to be remembered as?
Fearless and original. I really enjoy being myself, in my own skin, and I wish more people would be more of themselves vs giving into society. Be fearless in the pursuit of you. :)
