My favorite things are good food and a good workout to keep my body at its best always. I also love singing and acting because the stage has always been home for me.
What music are you listening to at the moment?
I’m listening to Meghan Thee Stallion, City Girls, Jhené Aiko, Aaliyah, and Ashanti. I love my strong female artists!
What have you learned about yourself during quarantine?
I learned about myself during quarantine that it’s okay to stop and take a step back from what you’re doing and reset.
It’s showed me that it’s okay not to be working every day all day because rest is just as crucial as the grind. Just because your not busy every day does not mean you’re not grinding; I can say this pandemic has helped me grow as a creative.
Three things the pandemic forced you to change?
Three things the pandemic has forced me to change #1 my workout routine. I go to the gym every day, so once gyms closed, I knew I still would not stop working out.
I had to change my routine, and my home workouts have been so much fun! And I would have never thought. #2 my outlook on life has changed because you never know when your life will take a drastic change, but you must roll with the punches. #3 it’s forced me to change my patience. I’ve learned that good things take time, so don’t try and rush the process.
Favorite movie and tv show:
My favorite movie is Hocus Pocus because I love Halloween, and my favorite tv show is America’s Next Top Model.
Favorite designer, fragrance, and beauty/grooming products?
My favorite designer is Laquan Smith; fragrance is Coach Cologne for Men, and my favorite grooming line is Mario Bedasco products. His products always keep me feeling fresh.
What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
If I weren’t modeling or pursuing entertainment, I would be getting my degree in communications and working on becoming a fitness trainer.
I love helping people become the best version of themselves. However, If I still had the choice to work in the entertainment industry, I would stay in entertainment.
What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
Something uncool that I love anyway is fried food. You might not think that way because of my body now, but even though it’s bad for you, it tastes so good when it’s fried, right?
What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
The best thing about my hometown is that since it’s such a small town, everything is pretty close together, so I never need to travel far for any essentials.
Place you would love to visit?
I would love to visit Dubai. Everything there seems so beautiful.
Which brand would you love to model?
There are a few brands, actually. I would love to work with Dior, Versace, Balmain, and Yeezy!!
Favorite modeling experience thus far?
Thus far, my favorite modeling experience would have to be doing NYFW last season because it was my first time in New York after so long of wanting to go.
What are some of your challenges as a model?
Some of the challenges I face as a model is balancing work life and social life. I find myself not being able to hang out with friends a lot because I’m always busy doing auditions, jobs, and trying to bring my career to that next level.
Your favorite feature on your body? Why?
My favorite feature on my body is my traps and triceps because I’ve been working hard the past couple of years to have my body the way it is now. When I do a photoshoot and see my traps and triceps looking nice, I think this photo would have the same execution if I didn’t have nice traps & triceps? Hmmm.
Currently, you’re obsessed with or about?
Currently, I’m obsessed with female rap. I feel like, for a long time, males have dominated the music industry. Now we got some strong females with a mission and some bars taking over this day and age like Meghan Thee Stallion, City Girls, Miss Mullatto, and Rico Nasty. I’m so here for it!
Three words that best describe you as a person?
Loyal, Determined. Spontaneous and everlasting. Had to make it four words because three just not enough for me
I want to shout out my mom, dad, sister, aunts, grandma, and grandpa. Without them, I don’t know if I would be where I am today. They’ve been supporting me since day 1, always pushing me to go above and beyond, and I promise I’m going to make them proud continuously.
