1. What is something not too many people know about you?
I was a total tomboy throughout my childhood, but I hated the word “tomboy” so I would say I was a “girly girl who loves sports”. All I did was play sports outside. For a long period of time I was very in to skateboarding and I actually wasn’t that bad. Why skateboarding? Because it was the closest thing to surfing I could get in the suburbs of Chicago (also I had a crush on Ryan Sheckler). My dream was to be a pro surfer even though I have never tried surfing, at the time, I just loved the culture, warm weather, and ocean. Yes, I finally got to fulfill my childhood dream to surf in 2015 on a family vacation in Maui, Hawaii and I loved it, but was not the greatest. Then again who is their first time.
2. What are your biggest passions or hobbies?
I love to live a healthy lifestyle. I am addicted to how I feel when I eat right and stay active. My friends call me a rabbit because all I eat are fruits, veggies, nuts, and grains but I take full pride in that title because I feel amazing. I also thoroughly enjoy helping people reach their goals, nothing is more satisfying when you help some one succeed and thrive.
3. What are your goals for the future?
My ultimate end goal is to have a platform that allows me to have a voice to help and inspire others. Some other goals of mine are to get signed by a major modeling agency, moving out southwest to a climate where its warm all year round, and being able to give back to those who supported me on my journey.
4. What is your definition of success?
I am about to sound super cliché. I define success by reaching complete happiness. I hate money because it’s too controlling. I understand the addicting high people get when they have money or materialistic things because I have experienced the feeling before, but that high goes away very quickly. I discovered that I get an even better high that lasts 100x longer when I am with the people I love, helping others who are in need, inspiring others to reach their greatest potential, and doing the things that I truly love. Life is way too short to constantly chase after money and materialistic things.
5. Tell us something about the projects you're currently working on.
Right now, I don’t have any specific projects I am working on. I am just trying to do as many photo shoots as possible and finding new photographers that fit my style.
