Favorite designer, fragrance or grooming/beauty product: My favorite foundation at the moment is Laura Geller: Cover Lock. I love the way it feels on my skin, and it is my exact skin tone. With other brands, I used to mix two foundations, or it’s just a little to light on me or a little too dark on me.
What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling? If it weren’t modeling, I would have been to become the first female in the NBA. I loved playing. I played basketball from 4th grade all the way up to college ball. Then I stopped for personal reasons.
What’s something uncool that you love anyway? Pimples LOL! I love watching them pop and popping them. Sometimes, I’ll go on YouTube and view a couple of videos. About 30 minutes at a time.

Place you would love to visit? In the states: Louisiana. I feel like Louisiana has a vibe all its own and it’s just something that I need to experience. Global wise would be Greece. There’s a calm, peacefulness to it.
Which brand would you like to model? Forever21Plus, Lane Bryant, Torrid, Premme, Ashley Graham’s ‘Swimsuits for All,’ Addition Elle & the little girl in me that dreamed this dream always pictured herself on Vogue!

What curvy models do you gain influence? Ashley Graham, Simone Mariposa, Tabria Majors, Nzinga Imani, Gabi Gregg, and Nadia Aboulhosn.
Favorite Season: Spring, because it just makes me feel like new beginnings as corny as it may sound lol it’s true.
Favorite junk food: I don’t have a favorite, but I do have a sweet tooth LOL! Sometimes it’s bad.
Where do you feel the most stuck in your modeling career? I feel like I’m at the door and I can’t get in yet. At this point, I’m trying to reanalyze and try new things. Thinking of what more I could be doing or what less I could be doing.
Currently, you’re obsessed with or about? Creating this new me. I feel like at this point and time I’ve become, grown and learned all I can as this person. So I’m setting up new challenges and goals because who I am right now can’t teach me anymore. This person I’m creating and envisioning is pretty cool, and I’m so excited to see what she’s all about
Three words that best describe you as a person. Loveable. Determined. Goofy.
