How does it feel to be selected as one of the Abners Angels?
So exciting, thanks for the opportunity!
What inspires you as a model?
Modeling is more than taking pictures, it’s creating art. I want to inspire those who are younger and even older to me to go after their dreams and do something they thought they couldn’t.
What are the main challenges in modeling today?
To me, the main challenge is height. I am only 5’6, I want to eventually be signed, but I don’t meet the height requirements for the agencies I’m interested in. Separating myself from being in the “IG Model” category. That’s not the image I want to uphold.
What physical features do you get the most compliments on? What are you insecure about?
My eyes and hair are most complimented. I don’t think I’m insecure about anything on myself. I learned to love my imperfections.
Are there any modeling goals you feel you haven’t achieved yet?
Yes! I would love to shoot for huge companies like Adidas, Pretty Little Thing or Fashion Nova.
Who are your musical icons/influences?
Rihanna and Beyoncé. I admire their hard work and go getter attitude. They motivate me to always go harder and don’t give up.
Where is the most beautiful place you have been?
Cozumel, Mexico. The beach is so beautiful!
What would be your ideal first date?
I always wanted to go on a picnic date in Piedmont Park. Ride bikes at the belt line, then end the date with ice cream!
If you can be the main character in a music video or movie what artist or movie star would you choose and why?
I would love to be the lead in a Chris brown video. He always has the dopest concepts and to be apart of that would be a blessing.
What are the top things you’ve learned over the past year?
What is for you will always be for you. Keep going, you never know who may be looking up to you.
Is there anything you would like people to know about you?
I am a huge introvert! Sometimes it works against me when I’m working and I need to network. But I push through, because I’m doing something I truly love and enjoy and I want to be the best I can be.
