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.

Whether you eat in bed or not, a mattress cover is vital to protect your mattress from bodily fluids, skin flakes, spilled food, and drinks.
2. Lay A Firm Foundation
Having a base isn’t required for a memory foam mattress to operate well, but it will raise your bed to the right height. If you use memory foam mattresses, your base must be solid, level, and gap-free. Slats on a slatted base should be no more than 2.75 inches apart to prevent uneven mattress wear. If the slats are too far apart, you’ll need to buy extra or use a plywood board.
3. Prevent Pets And Children From Jumping
This counsel is direct. Pets who roam freely and lie on the bed stimulate the spread of germs, insects, and bacteria where you sleep. The perfect situation is when you meet a nice and cuddly bedmate. The worst-case situation is parasite eggs nearby about to hatch. It’s encouraged to ban youngsters under 8 from jumping on beds. Bouncing on the bed is not only hazardous, but it also damages the mattress. The memory foam is overworked by the quick up-and-down movements, which don’t prolong its life.
4. Rotate Your Mattress Regularly
It’s common if you’ve heard of this advice, but have you ever put it to use? Rotate your memory foam mattress 180 degrees every season, starting right away. This method is based on the idea that sleeping in the same spot on the mattress every night could be uncomfortable and lead to a concentration of wear and tear in that area.

5. Make Your Mattress Clean
Your memory foam mattress may be protected against sweat, dust mites, and other allergies by vacuuming it at least twice a year. Start by sprinkling baking soda on your stripped mattress since the longer it remains there, the better. A few drops of essential oil are an optional addition. At some point, take out the vacuum and completely remove the baking soda using the upholstery attachment. The tufts, seams, and areas between the mattress and foundation are known to be dust mite havens.
6. Do Not Make Your Bed
You did indeed read that correctly. While it might appear illegal to put off making your bed, it is not recommended. Delaying making the bed gives your memory foam mattress and linens time to breathe, giving any moisture that may have accumulated throughout the night a chance to evaporate.
