I'm 27; my name comes from my grandfather mother. I'm very outspoken and can be a goofball once I open up to people. I dislike peanut butter. I have a unique style.

I would say tyra banks because she helps paved the way for some of us African American models and till this day it's still hard to break through, but now in our generation, we do see more African American models and I am proud of that.
