I believe that I have a unique name and also I am very diverse. I don't think the only model, but I act and dance too. I am also an athlete who loves to play volleyball and softball.

Essence, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as Model?

My passion is Acting. I aspire to be a successful actress and tell a story while inspiring people all over the world. As for modelling, I started by doing pageants which helped me with stage presence. Since then, I knew that this was something that I would want to do forever.

Who is your inspiration in life essence? How do you stay inspired as a Model?

Naomi Campbell is one of my biggest inspirations.

We all make mistakes essence; we wish we could take back. What was the mistake you made in the past that you wish you can take back?

I wish I would have taken my career more serious. Though I wouldn't call it a mistake, everything happens exactly when it is supposed to happen. I am taking my career more serious now, so that is what matters most.

essence, How do you describe yourself in terms of working with clients?

I am full of energy and willing to try almost anything.

Please tell us essence, how do you prioritise work, social life, friends, and family?

I try to make sure that I keep my family and friends involved in my career. It is often hard trying to keep up with everyone while trying to keep up with yourself. My family and friend understand my work, so they support me through it. Also, I would take a friend with me to an audition, and they are like my biggest support system.

essence, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.

At the moment, I can't think of a specific time, but I know that when you have a plan and a vision, you can make anything happen. Put confidence behind your words and people will start to listen.

essence, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model.

I have not had any big moments in the professional world, but I see every shoot, every background work as a stepping stone. One step closer to where I need to go.

Essence, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?

During my last shoot, I got the chance to walk around the city and shoot as myself. I thought it would be fun to take a picture in the middle of the street, use props such as chips and water. It felt good to be free

What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?

Stay focused. No one process is the same and doesn't compare yourself to anyone.
