1. WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO GET INTO THIS INDUSTRY? It was honestly an opportunity to be artistic, to tell the world "this is what I think sexy is; this is what I think beauty is." The idea of creating, and being able to celebrate beauty and sexuality; fashion and the female form.

3. WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE MODEL? Cara Delevingne
4. TELL US SOMETHING RANDOM ABOUT YOURSELF. It doesn't matter what time I go to bed, without fail I wake up 4:30am without an alarm clock. On a rare day 5-530. Who could sleep when you have so much you want to accomplish.
5. WHAT ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF? Being able to say to myself "I want that", and having the determination, drive and sacrifice to actually obtain it.
6. WHEN IT'S ALL SAID AND DONE, WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE REMEMBERED AS? A person who lived unapologetically, that heard their own voice above all others. Someone who followed their bliss and allowed themselves to be exactly who they wanted to be. Fearless and authentic, a brave enough woman to be kind and loving to herself and others.

ETHNICITY African American and Caucasian
LOCATION Atlanta, GA
1. WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO GET INTO THIS INDUSTRY? As a young girl my grandmother received subscriptions to the JET Magazine and I've always told her that I was going to be in one of those magazines someday. If they could be in a nationwide magazine then why couldn't I?
2. HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN MODELING? I've been modeling since the age of 19 but I've been more hands on with it since the age of 21.
3. WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE MODEL? My favorite model is Winnie Harlow. She is beautiful and gives the modeling industry something they have been missing and that is uniqueness.
4. TELL US SOMETHING RANDOM ABOUT YOURSELF. I am obsessed with nude nails.

6. WHEN IT'S ALL SAID AND DONE, WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE REMEMBERED AS? I want to be remembered as the young woman who chased her dreams in life without doubting her ability to do so.
