1. What inspired you to get into this industry? 

I have always loved fashion and photography. Modeling allows me to feel like both of my passions are combined together.


2. How long have you been modeling?

 2+ Years


3. Who is your favorite model? 

I don't have a particular favorite model. But I gather a lot of inspiration from my favorite fashion brands and their model look they create. Guess, Victoria's Secret, CK etc.


4. Were you always comfortable in your own skin and in front of the camera?

I've always been comfortable in my own skin. I love to model because every time I step in front of a camera it helps me to boost my confidence.


5. When you started did you have any mentors who really helped mold and guide you?

I have never had a specific single mentor. But I have had great opportunities in working with photographers from all walks of life. They have been kind enough to guide me and help me improve each time I model.


6. Do you have any tips for aspiring models in the industry?

Have confidence in yourself and in your goals. A lot of successful people start from nothing. Be willing to put the work in and in time you will begin to see yourself grow.


7. Have you ever had a WTF moment at a shoot?

Haha, not so far. But I hope this question doesn't jinx me. 


8. What are some of the biggest revelations you've discovered through modeling?

It helped me to realize that this is my passion and also something that I really want as a career.


9. Tell us something about yourself that people don’t know. 

Although I try to portray a confident image in front of the camera. I am actually a very down to earth and simple person.


10. What about yourself you are most proud of? 

That even in the hardest of times in my life I am able to reach deep down and find the energy to persevere.


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

In the end the things that I care most about is that the people closest to me remember me as a good person and are proud of what I have become.


12. Tell me a place that you absolutely must visit before you leave this world?

Outer space! Although it seemed far fetched years ago. My dream of reaching the stars has become a literal possibility.
