When did you start modeling? About 7 years ago


What drives/drove you to pursue a career in the modeling/fashion industry? It’s been a passion since i was able to walk. Mom collected Vogue, Essence, and other Fashion/Beauty Magazines. I was in awe of the Virginia Slim Models and always dreamed of being like them. Intrigued by fashion at such a young age & would dog ear pages in Spiegel regularly. Mom got me in Sears commercial & that was the beginning of my journey.


What are some of your best/worst experiences modeling? One of my Best fashion shows was during All Star in Dallas for the NBA wives.. I rocked VERSACE. The shoes were 8-9 inch platforms and not a WOBBLE! The worst experience is not gettin paid when you’re promised compensation.

What advice would you give to hopeful models? Observe! Learn how to walk & be confident. Develop relationships with designers you work with. Be nice, cordial and remember that it’s not about YOU; You are selling a product. Keep your attitude to yourself & HAVE FUN!


What is your dream job? To be the face of a popular beauty line…..legs for a known hosiery company…..spokesmodel for an international brand. DETERMINED!
