How does it feel to be selected as one of the Abners Angels?
It is truly an honor and I feel special to have been hand picked. I am glad someone is able to watch people’s grind and give them an outlet to share their passion and story with the world.
Was modeling something you always wanted to do, or did it just kinda happen?
When I was younger I used to do my own fashion shows around the house and wanted to model, but never thought I was tall or skinny enough. I never thought I’d actually start modeling. The standards and rules have changed now. I used to do photoshoots for fun and as a stress reliever in college. I loved putting in the work and then seeing the end result. A good friend told me I had a unique look and the drive so I went for it and never looked back.
What has been your favorite shoot / campaign / work to date?
My favorite campaigns are always ones for swimsuit companies. I am the brand ambassador for two companies: Caribbean Heat and Swim Beach Bae and I love working with them. The shoots are always fun and laid back. Of course I get to keep all my lovely attire, get amazing discounts and be featured on the company website.

Tyra of course and Draya.
