About: I have studied the modelling industry for ten years now. I was always looking up videos about modelling and acting related stuff. I have taken modelling and acting classes at John Casablanca and continue to do so. They have helped build my confidence so much!
I am also a promoter for a few clothing brands on Instagram including a Lgbtq+ clothing line, Bullies Reality, and Dnegelaeid.
I am going to be in 2 upcoming student films. 1 of them has an unknown name, and the other is called "Paperthin" where I will be playing a lead role as a character named "Grace Harper". I am very excited to be apart of such an amazing film that will be posted on Facebook and YouTube.
Getting professional pictures for me is super easy considering one of my new best friends is a photographer that works with Fable Studios. They have done many photos shoots for not only me but for others as well. They have also shot a few music videos for local talent!

Tell us something about yourself. What you do, passion and aspiration in life?
I am a model not only to inspire younger girls who want to do what I do but to also raise awareness for my many platforms including, anti-bullying, Women's Rights, and Lgbtq+ Rights.
My passion is to have people look up to me as a good role model and to teach girls like me to never give up on anything. My message to the world is to never judge someone on their past because they are struggling to move on from it. I say that because of personal experience.
Who is your inspiration in life? How do you keep inspired?
My inspiration in life is Taylor Swift because she empowers women all over the globe and is a huge international woman role model! I also look up to model Gigi Hadid because of how real, humble, pure, and caring she is.
I keep by looking up inspiring quotes. As a poet, these keep me going and keep my head held high and hearted stronger! Everyone knows me as the girl with a little body but big mind and heart. I am very caring and would help anyone no matter what they have done to me or anyone. I once told my friends "Show me a guy in an orange jumpsuit who was thrown in jail for something, and I bet you I could STILL find something positive about them."
What is your aspiration in life?
My aspiration in life is to be happy because being happy means living a life with no regrets. At the end of the day you have yourself, and if you aren't happy, then you are nothing. Have faith in everything you do and never doubt yourself. We are capable of so much! God once said "If you have faith even as tiny as a mustard seed, you can tell that mountain to move to the other side, and it will" that is something I live by.
What is the most challenging part of your profession?
The most challenging part of my profession, modelling, is the criticisms that may or may not come with it. You will be told no more times then you will be told yes, but that only makes the yes way much more important and meaningful. This industry can either tear you down or build you up. Whatever it does to you and your life, is all up to you.
We all make mistakes we wish we could take back. Tell me about a time you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
A situation I wish I would have handled better was in 6th grade when I was being harassed and bullied for the first time in my life. I used to sit alone at lunch time after all my friends turned on me and started bullying me. Nobody wanted to be my friend, so I felt so alone and depressed. I sad something to catch someone's attention but since it was the wrong thing, it haunts me still to this day.
When you’re working with a large number of customers, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. How do you go about prioritising your customers’ needs?: Since I am a promoter for clothing brands, my job is to make them look as good as possible and sell their products. Their costumers become my costumers. I fulfil the costumer's needs by listening to what they want and simply giving them what they want.
Tell me about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities.
I still do this, but I have to balance my YouTube career, modelling, acting, taking more classes at JC, school, and my social life. This can get very tricky with a tight schedule but it is my priorities, and I chose to fulfill them all.
Give me an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
One time during a film session of an old student film I was in for school, I wanted to film in a certain area, but the director was looking towards something else. Since I had my heart set on what I wanted to see happen, I went the next day to take pictures of the area and sent them to the director. She ended up choosing my spot.
Tell me about your proudest professional accomplishment.
My proudest professional accomplishment is when I got 2nd place in a beauty pageant in 2016. This is my proudest because it was the first one I was in since a toddler. Pageants hold a dear place in my heart ever since my grandma passed away due to cancer who was my proud supporter and who always made me feel confident.
How old do you have to be before it can be said you died of old age?
70 years old. If you are younger then that then congrats! I still consider you young.
Do glow-in-the-dark objects stop glowing when somebody turns the lights on?
Science is my worst subject, but I'll have to say no, they keep glowing.
If parents say, “Never take candy from strangers” then why do we celebrate Halloween?
Wow, I have no comment to that!
If one man says, “it was an uphill battle,” and another says, “it went downhill from there,” how could they both be having troubles?: I believe an uphill battle is a battle that was hard but won!
A downhill battle to me is a hard lost battle.
