Tell readers how you were discovered and how your modeling career all started?
I have been modeling on and off since the age of 13. I can honestly say Tyra Banks was one of the first reasons I wanted to model. It was very interesting to see a African American woman in modeling running the industry. I have done A LOT of work such as NYFW, Runways, Movies, plays, etc. Most people think modeling is just taking pictures, but for me I think a model is being a role model.
What physical features do you get the most compliments on? What are you insecure about?
I get the most compliments on my eyes and smile. Honestly, I’m not insecure not to sound cocky, but I don’t have anything to be insecure about.
How do you feel about the internet in the modeling business?
I feel like the internet helps a lot with building up a career for modeling, because you are able to network a lot if you use it in the right content. I do feel like the internet can also be a downside for modeling, because nowadays a lot of females post anything and call themselves a model. Which makes it harder for people who are actually taking their own modeling skills serious.
What do you think you look the sexiest in?
