- Why did you become a model?
I’ve always had a love for modeling. I watched runway shows, red carpets, fashion shows, and I have always been fascinated by everything about it. I always knew this was what I wanted to do with my life. Another reason is because, growing up I always compared myself to Victoria Secret models. I wanted to be the same size as them because I thought I had to be that size to be a model. But that’s not true, and it took a long time and an eating disorder for me to realize that. I want to be a role model to young girls with big dreams! And show them that if I can do it, you can too!
2. What is your favorite part of being a model?
Oh gosh, there are so many things. But I think my favorite is the creative direction that most people don’t realize. The fact that you are taking someone’s vision and making it come to life is exhilarating.
3. What is your least favorite part of being a mode?
There honestly is none about the overall job. It’s the things sometimes I do to make the job hard like being very strict on myself to be perfect all the time. I’ve gotten better but I just am a perfectionist.
4. How did you land your first gig?
Well ,I haven’t yet.
5. How do you inprove your modeling skills?
I have posing cards, and books, I watch YouTube videos, put my phone on self-timer to practice posing, look in the mirror and practice faces, and walk around in high heels till my feet can’t take it anymore. I do all these things every day. I also workout 6 days a week to keep my body in shape, and I’m vegan so I try to eat healthy.
6. What recommendations would you make to other models?
Stay determined, believe in yourself, and most importantly always be yourself because that is the most beautiful thing you can do.
8. Who are your role models? Why?
Charli Howard, is 100% my biggest role model ever! She is a model, but she also suffered from an eating disorder. She’s such a strong independent woman, she’s a go getter, and most importantly is unapologetically herself!
9. What are the most important qualities to be a successful model?
Keep your head up, be yourself, be a go getter, and work your butt off to make it happen!
10. What would you change about the modeling industry?
I think that the model industry has gotten better at this, but I think they need to have more body types. Not just in magazines, or online. But on runways!
