Have you always been interested in modeling?
Yes, I've been interested since I was eleven or twelve. I frequently shopped at Victoria's Secret with my mother and my sister and was impressed by the images of beautiful, sexy women me, in large photos around the store. To me, they were women who embraces their femininity, were fashionable, and exuded confidence and fitness. I liked that and still do.
What are some of your favorite brands?
Fashion Nova, Pretty Little Things, Cure Booty Lounge, Bikini Crush and Dolcessa Swimwear.
Did Instagram come easy to you?
Instagram was like a domino effect for me. One day I did a shoot for a well-known photographer on Instagram, and from there my account started to take off. After I shot with that photographer, more photographers started to reach out for additional photoshoots. My account quickly grew from 3000 to 200K in less than a year. I now have over 1M followers.
Would you consider yourself an extrovert or an introvert?
I think I'm equally a bit of both. I enjoy people and social activities, but I also enjoy a bit of quiet time by myself.
Are you strict about what you eat?
Yes. I'm very strict. I like to eat organic and healthy food - lots of leafy, green vegetables and not alot of meat. However, I have one cheat day per week.
How do you balance your schedule?
I always book my own shoots a few weeks in advance. I also make it a point to to schedule certain activities during my days and weeks -- like going to the gym, food preparation for healthy meals, time with friends and family -- I put it in my calendar and make it happen.
What is your favorite destination that you have traveled so far?
My favorite destination that I have traveled so far would be Paris. I love the food, culture, fashion, and art. I loved Paris so much that I'm even considering living there part-time.
What do you do to unwind?
I like to get in soft, cozy, baggy, pants, put my hair up, and curl up on the sofa at home. I have a good meal, a glass of wine, and an interesting show to watch.
