1. What is something not too many people know about you?
I commonly run into people thinking I have everything together, especially my confidence. So often have I accumulated envy just from being present, when I just like most people struggle with myself daily. It was drilled into me at an early age that I wasn’t enough in any aspect. So it’s been a long and continuous journey of self love to regain my self respect and confidence. We live in such a judging world, we fail to remember the outside is only a small part of a human being.
2. What are your biggest passions?
There are so many beautiful ways to creatively express ourselves I couldn’t just choose one. I believe we should do as much as we can and never limit our passions. I personally have a soft spot for writing, the moodier the better and of course I model, but I love being the visionary even more. So I guess you could say my passion is creating with like minded people and if not with myself.
3. What are your goals for the future?
I often feel like a kid in a candy store craving everything on the shelf. For a long time I thought I had to choose one goal and that goal alone would be my focus, but there is so much possiblity I have thrown myself into a bit of it all. I do desire the same things all people do, love, success, a lucrative career and to travel here and there. To simplify a majority of my goals they are there to make me happy and that happiness is going to vary person to person. I do believe next to my happiness is the goal to create happiness for others.
4. What is your definition of success?
Success is never a matter of physicality or the materialistic, but a matter of the heart and spirit. I believe if you have positively impacted those around, given your best and you are happy then you are successful. Who is to say a stay at home mom who gives love endlessly is less successful than a opulent office executive ?
5. Tell us something about the projects you're working on.
Currently I’ve opened up myself to the world a little bit more. I had grown tired of people pretending to be happy or playing it off like they’re always 100%. It’s easy to show off your good days but what about the bad ? I wanted someone to just be honest and genuine instead of the endless selfies, lavish dinners, vacations and advertisements we’re so used to online. So I took to writing about my personal, raw and unpleasant experiences in a blog on my website. I also have been working on a poetry book I should have out late summer/ early fall. As far as modeling I do plan on some more creative concepts of my own idea as well as lifestyle, fashion and glamour work.
