How did you get into modeling and how long have you been modeling?

I initially began with a started agency, however with my interest in modeling growing so rapidly, I decided to do more research and market myself as freelance model. I have been modeling thus far 3.5 years.

What are your modeling goals or what you seek to accomplish while modeling?

As a full figured model with natural hair, there are a large amount of walls to be broken down, and boundaries to pushed as it is important to me to remain true to myself. This industry has a lot of demands and ideal looks, while in some case I may be willing to compromise, it is imperative that I remain the Full figured loc'd lioness that I am, and make them fall in love with me, I am my own brand, and it is my job to sell it.

What has been your biggest gig so far?

I have had so many grand opportunities, the most memorable so far have been Walking during NY Fashion week in Catherine Scullers, Runway the Real way fashion show, taking part in The Curves Rock weekend, from the news segment, to the actual Fashion Show, and modeling for The Sesame Flyers/ Sesame Carnival in NY as they showed off the very best in Carnival costumes. Such great opportunities.

What is your dream modeling/acting gig?

For me to not only travel overseas to model, but to be the face of campaign that not only had a powerful message but was seen internationally. It would mean a lot if I could inspire women and girl's all over the world to push the boundaries and follow their dreams.

What are your favorite modeling areas?

My favorites when it comes to modeling High Fashion, print, and runway!

Your favorite photographers you have worked with?

I have done some of my best and favorite works so far with, Natalie Clark-Photography, Arekah the Goddess Photography, and Julian Skinner- of JUSS Media.

Your favorite quotes?

I always say... I recognize my imperfections, my imperfections recognize I am nothing without them and everything with them. I also love: Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds!- Bob Marley

What do you bring to the table as a model? In other words, what can companies agencies/photographers expect when working with you?

It is important to be comfortable with the skin you are in, but learn your weaknesses, and claim them! I say this because you will always have folks critique and give you constructive criticism, but if you are aware of your weaknesses, then perfecting your craft is not an issue, but a driven passion. I encourage people to tell me if it is not good enough or what they want as it is my drive to perfect it. My name is a representation of who I am, it is my job to make sure it is quality and unlike any other.
