1. What inspired you to get into this industry?

 As a little girl all I've ever wanted to do was act. Over the years I participated in anything from that was a visual performing art such as dance, choir, orchestra, acting and dancing. I absolutely fell in love! Somehow that led me to modeling and it has turned into something that I'd want to do for a career! Being able to connect with others and great art is my favorite thing in the world.

2. How long have you been modeling?

 I have been modeling since 2012 but have been modeling seriously for about a year and a half now!

3. Who is your favorite model?

I don't exactly have a favorite model. I'm more so inspired by influencers, photographers, and models such as (some are Instagram names) Angelina Jolie, @ophelia_overdose, and @deanastacia. These people either motivate me from either wanting to be in their works or how they carry themselves in the industry

4. Tell us something random about yourself.

 Most people wouldn't know that my favorite music ranges from rock to metal and moshing in the pits at shows are my favorite thing to do besides modeling!

5. What are you most proud of?

I would say I'm most proud in my personal growth as a human being. I feel that at this age I've become very independent and open minded about the world and it has allowed me to come across amazing things and people.

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

I want to be remembered as the girl who couldn't be anything but herself regardless of what others think, even if it's weird as hell.
