1. What is something not too many people know about you?
One thing I’m known for even just for coming into the entertainment part of social media is my appearance. My big hair, my style, and my face is what mainly makes me stand out from many others. But also freshly coming into the film world as a woman, you tend to gain more attention because of your appearance and that’s not what I want my audience to be influenced by when my name is projected. I tend to see the fact that I’m a woman or my appearance getting in the way when I attempt to create with others. Don’t get me wrong! Being a model here and there is cool, I just want to be completely recognized for my portfolio and skill.
2. What are your biggest passions?
Film has technically been my passion since I was eleven years old. From taking after school classes in middle school to mid day classes in high school, I’ve always been hands on to equipment and technical resources. My passion in film is strong with computer editing and I have always said I never wanted to be a director, but who knows? It may change one day. I also LOVE to style with clothing and often when I’m working on a project, I will most likely be assisting with styling.
3. What are your goals for the future?
Aside from the typical future goals of buying a house or starting a family, I’d really just love to have an empire. Many people go for fame and attention for themselves and their name, but I just seek to create a strong legacy after myself. I want to influence others who have the same passions as myself to stand out and not conform to the trends they’ve been set up to be surrounded by in society. I also always look forward to spreading happiness to those around me as it’s most important to me in life.
4. What is your definition of success?
I always tell many people that “success” is my favorite word. It’s something I believe I will achieve one day whether it takes a milestone or if it comes tomorrow. Being able to do what I love everyday and have the freedom to completely be who I am is the ultimate goal. To be able to give back to my family, friends, and loved ones knowing I will be able to gain it all back is way more than I could even ask for. Being selfless is super essential, but in the end your success is completely ruled by you and your actions toward yourself.
5. Tell us something about the projects you're working on.
I like to keep my projects very incognito, but at the moment I’m just starting to gather many of my resources and supplies necessary to create more projects. Building my craft is what I look forward to everyday and having the patience to grow and build skill is a major virtue.
