I would have to say my smile! I am a very high energy individual and I often hear that my smile and laugh are contagious.

When I booked my first paid gig. Being such a small influencer I really felt as if the company believed in me and my message.
What do you do to stay in shape?
I try to hit the gym at least three times a week. Staying disciplined is also very important to staying in shape, so I am very cautious about what I put into my body.
What do you think you look the sexiest in?
A hoodie, some sweat pants and some fye kicks!

That I am a very independent person and a lot of people cant handle that.
Which insecurity would shock people if they knew about it?
Not feeling pretty enough. In the industry I work in were constantly pressured to look the part 24/7, even when we don’t feel like it. This is also a very competitive field and sometimes it’s easy to get caught up in comparing yourself to others.
When was the last time a stranger made your day?
Just yesterday actually. I was in the grocery story and this lady acted as if she had just seen Beyoncé, lol. She approached me and said wow you are beautiful!

A week in the future, because you can’t change the past. On the downside if I were to see a week into my future and I didn’t like it then I could possibly change it.
Do you think your childhood was better or worse than other people growing up in a similar place and time?
I think my childhood was a bit of both. I grew up poor, but my parents made sure I never knew as a child. I was too busy being a child enjoying life to even realize the circumstances of our situation.
