Favorite modeling experience so far? Full Figure Fashion Week 2018. The runway is the part of modeling I am the least interested in. However, I still choose to polish that and learn all trades of modeling. That week-long event was the hardest, most experienced, and most significant week so far as a model. It helped me to appreciate the runway aspect of modeling more.
What are some of your challenges as a model? Sometimes, the overall body-positive message gets overlooked as well as other up & coming models, which can feel like a popularity contest surrounding you. However, I am confident in the art that I create. I genuinely love and enjoy modeling, and I don’t need a stamp of approval or a repost to feel relevant. What is meant for me is for me! As long as I continue to produce great work, I’ll be recognized by the right people.
Currently, you’re obsessed with or about? Believe it or not, aging. I’m certainly not rushing it, but I genuinely love the process of getting older, getting wiser, more understanding of a lot. With each year, I sink deeper into a pool of unapologetic realness, and I’m becoming more comfortable to be ‘me’ throughout it.
Three words that best describe you as a person? Tenacious. Passionate. Vivacious.
Any shoutouts? Everyone. To everyone who loves me or otherwise, you all help keep my passion ignited. Can’t stop, won’t stop.
