I submitted my pictures to agencies & they contacted me back.

What inspired you to be a model?

I always wanted to be since I was a little girl. Everyone told me I had "the look." I always wanted to be on the Tyra Banks show. As I got older & came out my style started to change. I know I'm different & I wanted to make a positive difference in the modeling industry. I also want to use being a model & becoming a public figure to help motivate others.

What’s your favorite part of being a model?

I was in a music video! That was exciting!

Hip - Hop because there's always a different mood or flow. It could be serious, upbeat, or more mellow.

Your favorite food.

Most memorable shoot so far.

I really liked my shoot with Tony Duran. It was interesting because I'm not feminine at all & it was a really girly shoot. It was interesting & he's an amazing photographer. I also enjoyed working with Kela the MUA. She was really cool.

What else keeps you busy aside from modeling?

My job & my loved ones.

What comes next after modeling?

I hope to one day build my own brand and become an entrepreneur. I also want to be a motivational speaker.

Any advice you can give to any aspiring models out there?

Be yourself & stay ambitious. Don't ever give up. Keep going.
