Why did you choose to pursue a career as a model?

From childhood, I loved watching fashion

shows and looking at magazines. The ability to be a blank canvas, that in turn, is the visual for powerful messages is extremely intriguing to me.

My father owned a talent agency in

the 90s and I come from a very talented family who loves to entertain. This opened me up to the entertainment industry at a young age. With the help of my father, I was able to get a commercial and I fell in love with the process and thrill of being booked. I

also joined a hip hop dance team early on that gave me the opportunity to learn how to do professional photo shoots.

 

What is your greatest weakness? What are you doing to improve it?

My greatest weakness is working on

too many things at once. Often times, I feel as if I have so many great ideas. prioritizing and zoning is something I struggle with. To improve this, Iʼm working on improving my planning process, And having a focused course of action. J believes that by doing

this I will have a more solid foundation to move into all of the other avenues that I was to get into. Iʼm also looking to improve on my team-building skills. I feel that having a strong team is one of the most important parts of the industry and I would love

to develop my team to be stronger and larger. I believe that by doing this, I will be able to be much quicker and efficient with my goals as well as the goals of my teammates.

What is your greatest strength?

My greatest strength is my consistency

and resilience. Nothing great comes easy, and I believe to have success in anything, itʼs going to take consistency. I feel that my consistency has opened me up to many opportunities because I have never considered giving up as an option.

My mother instilled

resilience in me at a very young age and it proved to be extremely beneficial.    Seeing my mother overcome so much, made me see that anything is possible.   Going out for auditions means hearing A LOT of Nos. I have pursued things despite my fear of rejection.

I have also tried to come back harder from every no. Sometimes things also havenʼt always worked out the way that I have wanted. I try not to take it personally and be resilient in my work effort after every mistake and hardship, keeping in  mind that every successful

a person has had a learning process to reach their success.

What are your goals as a model?

To become the face of large brands.

I have experience booking with large brands, but I would like to become the face of brands like Fenty, Leviʼs, American Eagle, or Aeropostale. Eventually, I would also like to use my experience as a commercial and print model to move into TV and movies. I want

a TV show with Disney or Nickelodeon. I would also like to have a superhero role in a movie. My goal is also to use my experience to move into the creative part and the behind the scenes of advertising, tv, and movies.

My goals as a model are also to use

my platform and knowledge to teach others that there are many ways to support yourself and do what you love without the traditional 9-5 jobs that most people are used to.

What are your greatest accomplishments so far?

My greatest accomplishments so far

have been being the hero commercial model for Disney Resort Tv. Spending 2 weeks filming at Disney World with Disney was an amazing experience that I will always remember. It was also my first official audition so it was a great feeling to get the booking from

my first audition. Another great accomplishment has been being able to spread opportunities to others. I have gotten others booked with brands such as Jaguar, Oculus, and more. I have also gotten someone booked for multiple seasons of MTV’s Wild ‘N Out.
