1. What is one thing not too many people know about you?
Something not too many people know about me is that I want to have played every female Shakespeare character by the time I die!
2. What are your biggest passions ?
I hope to one day have my hand in every art from from music to literature! However the biggest passions that I'm pursing at the moment are Acting and Modeling. I've known since I was little that I was going to be an actress when I grew up. As I got older and payed more attention to the entertainment industry I realized how difficult it was to find women that looked like me, on screen and in print. Around my freshman year of college is when I began to be interested and more invested in the modeling world. Watching the push for size inclusivity unfold in the modeling and entertainment world has done wonders for my self and world view and I hope to be an advocate for the movement as my career progresses. I truly belive that when we see people who look like us doing incredible things it makes us want to treat ourselves better.
3. What are your goals for the future?
To be a consistently working artist in any way shape or form! At some point later in my career I'd love to open up a communal art space where there is a team of in-house directors, designers and technicians etc. so the space can provide everything one might need to put up a play or installation for new work and emerging artists who may not otherwise be able to get the funding for their work to be produced.
4. What is your definition of success?
Excelling in a field you're passionate about! The key to success is constantly setting new goals for yourself. You should always be raising your standards for yourself because there are too many things in the world for you to accomplish to ever really be finished.
5. Tell us something about the projects you’re working on.
Recently I've hopped on board as a model with The Gypsy Shack Collective(TGS) which is a group of collaborators and creatives from photographers to models and makeup artists who get together and create some incredible content. It's founded by our fearless leader Alex Morehouse (@chiefwolfblood) on the principles of wanting to promote unity, positivity and diversity with no height or weight requirements within the industry! So look out for some more amazing content from them and @kristmis coming soon!
