1. What is something not too many people know about you?
What many people do not know about me is that I’m a collector. However, it is not your typical collection. I am a collector of quotes, stories, scents, and experiences. I love collecting personal stories from others to learn something new about myself. Most of these stories are from TedTalks, podcasts, or friends of my own. I feel this is what fuels my motivation to do big things for myself and continually be inspired by others' empowering moments.
2. What are your biggest passions or hobbies?
My biggest passions involve modeling, fitness, and cooking. I have always loved the art of modeling in capturing a pose that expresses an emotion or moment in time. Then, the rest of my passions are investments of my health. I’m a strong believer in how you treat your body and mind will later reward you or punish you in the future.
3. What are your goals for the future?
Oh man, my goals are endless. First, my goal is to finish my BSN in nursing. I hope to find a good job in an ER or ICU department at a hospital to work my way into becoming a med-flight nurse. I’m an adrenaline junkie, and I have always managed to have a strong head on my shoulders when it comes to figuring out how to take charge of a situation. Then, while trying to accomplish that, I want to pursue my dream of becoming a model. I have a fire that burns within me when I am modeling, it’s as if everything around me disappears when I’m in the moment. I always feel so empowered by the end of every photo shoot.
4. What is your definition of success?
My definition of success is endlessly going after your desires, even if it involves failure. Great things are brought together through small actions to equal success in my eyes. One of my all time favorite quotes are “the goal is not to be successful, the goal is to be valuable. Once you are valuable, instead of chasing success it will attract itself to you,” this helps me stay motivated in whatever I wish to accomplish in a certain moment in my life.
5. Tell us something about the projects you're working on.
One of the projects I am working on is my thesis, which is called “The Cast of Producing: Becoming a Model.” I hope to gain experience and tons of research in all the efforts that are needed in becoming a model. I think this will help me learn so much about the industry and networking skills.
