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

I've always been interested in modeling since my teen years. I officially got behind a camera in 2009 when a friend and photgrapher, Niko Holiday, asked me if I wanted to do a shoot. After that first taste, I was really hooked.

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

My modeling goals are to make this my career, my dream job that is actually my reality. I want to travel the world, make photographic art with my body, showcase a variety of clothing, and just enjoy the things that come with being a professional model. I strive to be successful in a lot of aspects as a model and hopefully inspire.

What has been your biggest gig so far?

So far, my biggest gig was a runway show I was a part of in New York this past April. The Ecolution USA 2013 Fashion Show showcased earth friendly and recycled clothing and fashion. It was a fantastic event and experience for me as a new model.

What is your dream modeling/acting gig?

My dream modeling gig at the moment is to walk in one of the Victoria's Secret Fashion Shows as one of the angels. I've watched the shows for many, many years and always pictured myself on the runways giving my fiercest walk with giant angel wings trailing behind me.

What are your favorite modeling areas??

Right now, my favorite modeling area would have to I love, love, love fashion! Even though I may not look like it all the time, I still love how it can be created and transformed. But, I don't know...once I really get into the other areas, who knows what my favorite will become.

Your favorite photographers you have worked with??

Mr. SPADE of course! I loved our shoot together. He's very professional and on-point with things. Everything happened very naturally when I shot with him, and I really liked that. Plus, he's hilarious. David Birch, I've shot with him a couple of times. He helped me grow as a model, by aiding me in discovering what works with my body while posing. Also, Nana Atakora-Bediako, he's a young photograhper who produces great work. He's very intelligent and detail-oriented when shooting. He specifically told me what I needed to work on and I appreciate that. I can't wait to work with all of these fantastic photographers again!

List 3 interesting fun facts about you??

Three interesting fun facts....well, I'm a little bit of a nerd or geek. I like technology, science, video games and such. I'm a Playstation girl until the end. My favorite games are God of War and Call of Duty Black Ops. Also, I enjoy reading and writing in my spare time. My preferred genre to write is erotica, and Zane is basically my literature idol. My last little interesting fun fact would be that I am a track and field national champion in the triple jump. I ran track since 1998 up until my senior year at North Carolina Central University. Track and field was a huge part of my life and I honestly do not know how my life would be without it and the people that were a part of my track life.

Your favorite quotes??

"What goes around, comes around." - I am a strong believer of karma and try to live by it.

"When I'm good, I'm very good, but when I'm bad, I'm better." -This quote is from Mae West. I am a fan or her quotes and rather enjoy this particular one.

"Everything happens for a reason." - This is something that helps me through tough situations, I think it's very optimistic, like myself.

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

I can be a very versatile person. I can adapt and don't like being restricted to just one thing. I would always try to bring something new, fresh, and original with my modeling whether behind a camera, on a runway, or on a movie set. I would always be evolving and growing as a person and model/actress. Also, I would always be optimistic, try to be positive, and open to different ideas and concepts. I would use my natural competitiveness and professionalism to be an asset to agencies, and be an overall pleasure to work with no matter the person.
