All my life I have always endeavored in some sort of creative expression, singing, song writing, dancing, drawing and painting. I went to Talent Unlimited High School as a vocalist and in turn was trained in music theory, music notation, piano and took master classes for classical music/ opera. With all the school plays, I was also required to take dance and acting classes. I love all of these but within the last two years I have been into visual arts as I started painting.

5. Career highlights?

I am pretty new to the industry but before modeling I interned as an assistant stylist for Vogue Paris. I got the chance to work on bridal and couture sets, which was amazing! It was so inspiring to see the amount of effort that goes into a cover shot and seeing the model effortlessly was amazing. After that I was on a mission to be that girl!

6. How did you get into modeling ?

For a while people were telling me that I should be a model but never had the confidence to do so. It wasn’t until a good friend of mine got into photography and I was able to get in front of the camera that I realized I was a natural. I love to be in front of the camera and expressing myself. Like Beyoncé I feel an alter ego turn on when I’m on set and I want to be that girl all the time.
