What made you become a model?
My sister took me to her first audition for America’s Next Top Model. I got to meet Tyra Banks, show her my walk and she loved it. She said I had a confident walk, from there deep down I have always been interested in modeling/fashion. As I got older a lot of people asked if I have ever tried modeling or acting and that I have the face for it. I started making connections and finding photographers that would want to collaborate with me. I have been modeling for 17 years now and it’s the most fantastic experience in the world.
