What made you first become a model?

I started modeling when I was an influencer for a prom and homecoming dress company. When I went on my first shoot, I realized I felt best when I was in front of the camera, I was confident and in my own world. I then started shooting with nearby photographers and eventually signed to Heyman Talent Agency in Cincinnati.

How did you feel when you did your first ever fashion show or photo shoot?

I felt very confident in myself and I was thankful for that feeling.

Who was your role model as a child an how did that help in being a model?

Growing up, I always looked at models thinking that could never be me. But, I’ve always loved watching Gigi Hadid on the runway. Not only did she look flawless, she looked like she owned the show.

What are some of your favorite designers or stores?

Some of my favorite stores are actually online only. But, I love the creativeness and quality of Louis Vuitton & Gucci.

What are guilty pleasures food wise?

I love good sweet & salty snacks!

What beauty tips do you swear by?

Exfoliating, moisturizing & SLEEP!!

How do you cope under the pressures of being a model?

I usually don’t feel nervous or under pressure but if I am I try to take a deep breath and look in the mirror and say, “everything happens for a reason” so that I am here for a reason.

If a young girl/boy wanted to be a model what would your advice for them be?

It’s a critical and competitive industry but if you set your mind to it, then you can be whatever you want, so go for it!!
