“Born and raised in Southern CA, most kids get into acting or modeling at a young age. When I was 10 I attended a modeling school, like the ads you’d see in the back of a teen magazines. I wanted to be a star, because I didn’t see too many girls like me on tv. As I got older my interests changed, I focused more on visual arts and sports. Now here at the beautifully blooming age of 23, it’s funny how things have come full circle! I tell people “I want to model, and style”, “I want to be a change in the fashion industry” but it’s deeper-rooted than that. I want to be the ROLE model that I never had growing up–I want to bring something real, fresh, and genuine to the fashion industry that women can relate to!”

Where are you from and where do you live now?
 Born and raised in the LBC (Long Beach, CA) currently still living here
What are you into?
 Fashion is my jam! I love to thrift, and most likely will over dress for any occasion. But you also can catch me on the dance floor breaking a sweat, to some nasty hip hop!
What else do you do?
I’ve always been a creative person, so expressing myself is a necessity. I painted a lot in high school, and still enjoy that medium every now and then. But recently,
I’ve been getting into digital art, graphic design type work, and I love it!
What’s important to you?
 My freedom of expression I would say, it’s what allows me to be me! And that’s the greatest gift!
Favorite Song?
 Move On Up by Curtis Mayfield– not just for its funky beats, but the message behind it is loud and clear–always believe in yourself, and your dreams
What scares you most?
Love. Even though I LOVE, love. It’s powerful, and can take so many forms.
What’s a skill you wish you possessed?
 Professional dance definitely! I mean love to dance, but have always wanted to be a professional hip hop dancer! It’s never too late though.
What’s your secret obsession?
 My crocs…. They’re just too comfy
Favorite books?
 Harry Potter has always been my favorite series!
Best fashion moment?
 My last birthday, I was in NOLA for Mardi Gras. I strutted down Bourbon St. in a sequined suit, and a vinyl bra top!
Favorite Word?

What pisses you off?
 Today’s dating culture, it’s kind of doomed I believe. Dating apps have made it hard to have genuine connections with members of the opposite sex, on a romantic level. People are easily disposed, and accessible at the same time.

 Give me 90s vintage Versace!!
What fictional character do you relate to the most?
 Andie (Molly Ringwald) from Pretty In Pink
What celebrity do you have a crush on?
