“Hustle beats talent when, talent don’t hustle!”
I’ve loved the modeling industry my whole life! Growing up I was super shy and a little bit self conscious, so I didn’t get started til I was 24. That’s when I did my first shoot and runway show. Growing up, there were two things that inspired me to model – one was watching Tyra Banks and America’s Next Top Model! Tyra broke so many barriers and definitely made me believe it was possible for me! And Two was my foster mom. She would always tell me “I got it”. She definitely believes I could go far! Since I’ve started modeling I have walked in multiple fashions shows and I’ve done countless photo shoots. I’ve also starred in multiple music videos! Some local and some big name as well such as (Calboy and Dj Luke Nasty). And I’ve been published in 3 magazines since last year. Being a model has become part of my identity!

How did you get started modeling?
I actually had multiple photographers contact me because they loved my look. So one day I scheduled my first shoot. And I’ve been going ever since!
