What interested you in becoming a model?
As a child, I was always pursued to be a model. In some occasions, agents would approach my parents in hopes to recruit me. However, as the years went by the love for photography and fashion grew more. Modeling became my obsession at the age of 17, I took the initiative to start my modeling career and pursue my life dream.
Has your perception of the modeling industry changed over time?
Yes it has, overtime the perception of a perfect body was being thin and now a perfect is anybody. No matter what form, shape or size, we are all a perfect body.
What physical features do you get the most compliments on?

What’s your favorite 80’s show?
Not familiar with any shows since I’m not an 80’s baby.
What was your favorite toy as a child?
Haha, I would have to say the echoing microphones. Omg, if there one thing I could annoy my mom with, would be that toy. I would walk around the house singing to every Selena song possible on that thing. All you will hear from the other end of the house is, “Callate Vanessa.”
What game have you spent the most hours playing?
Candy Crush, Sonic and Super Mario Brothers.

Mila Kunis in the 70s show. She’s gorgeous with such confidence, not to mention who can resist Fez. Cute & funny.
What did you always want to try, but never found the courage to do?
Oh definitely bungee jumping, I don’t have the ovaries to do something crazy like that for sure.
Are there any areas of your life that could use extra nurturing right now?
I definitely have to say spiritually.
If you could live anytime during history, when would it be and why?
I would have to say the 90’s. Technology was not as advanced, so we as kids actually played outside and enjoy outside activities. Not to mention we had the most legendary rappers then with Tupac and Biggie Smalls. So my answer most definitely the 90’s.
