When did first realize that you wanted to make a career out of modeling?
Once I realized I was actually good at it, which was at the age of 18. Modeling in many different forms began to elaborate a more defined me. I always was shy and hidden; it gave me more definition to my character. Just like Beyoncé is reserved in real life, but yet she’s Sasha fierce on stage. I can say it’s the same for me with modeling.
Who were some of your major influences when you first started in the modeling profession?
I’ve always had influences in my life, whether they are influences for the moment or for a life time. Tyra Banks, will always be a models influence in this industry, so of course her. I started off being influenced by people around me, noticing steps they took and realizing I need to go beyond. Currently now, my influences have change as I’m growing, I look up to well respected and more successful people so I can eventually go beyond. No matter what, I will always show respect and give credit where it’s due.
I have never really worked personally with a model. There were a few in a few fashion shows given by my mother. How hard is it to find gigs for models, especially paying gigs?
It’s very complicated, to be honest. Everyone thinks it all gilts and glams. Pictures here and there! So many girls and guys models now days, work is becoming harder to find for the non-experienced models. I’ve been modeling for while so I get quite a bit of work by networking and word of mouth. Paid gigs in my city (Austin, TX) for models aren’t easy to get. Most people work off Trade unless they are dying to work with you. Experienced Models typically get paid! Depending on your style of Modeling, most models are doing hosting’s to get their names out there so they can get paid. It’s all about whom you know and working your Network to gain Net worth.
When I first seen pictures of you a few years ago, the scenery that was in the background of the photo-shoot were very unique and I think that is what caught my attention. And of course, your beauty. I look for uniqueness and different when viewing photography of models. After viewing the pictures I made you model of the month for my website. Then you gave me an S/O on a video which was much appreciated. But moving on with the interview, in the past few years what have been some of your major accomplishments?
Thank you, I respect and show love to those who do the same to me. My main accomplishment I would say would be knowledge. I know way more than I knew when I first started off trying to be involved with everything that modeling had to offer. I’m skilled mentally, so I now know the tools to take as a freelance model and how to back myself business wise.
What are some of your immediate goals and also some of your long term goals?
My immediate goals is to accomplish my opportunity’s I receive daily and check off my to do list that leads to my long term goal. My Long term Goal is To Be a Model who advances in success, I plan to have my own reality show dealing with Models and that being something that embraces the minds of this world to want to accomplish their dreams but seeing it won’t be easy. This Avenue will create New Avenues for me.
Being a model, I know you are approached several times by males and females flirting with you. Give me 2 incidents or things asked by a male and then give me 2 from a female that you thought was crazy or made you uncomfortable.
With Social media, in my inbox I’ve gotten the weirdest/ freakiest things said to me. It isn’t like that quite anymore; unless that person is flooding everyone’s inbox (lol). I can’t quite think of the quotes, it probably will be too much. One incident I do remember which happened this year was a first! A girl who was gorgeous. We all were partying then she complimented me then stated to me, Can we F*? Like no strings attach, or something like that… we laughed it off and everyone in the section remained having fun. As shock as I was I took her number because I like hanging with pretty girls but we didn’t ever hang out. I will say I will be using her as a model in one of my events coming up that includes 10+ beautiful models. Lots of time when I get flirted with, I reflect it with business. I do that a lot with men but I see it as we all can win, financially!
My friend on the radio always say ask models this question. Do you have a twerk video?
I’ve always did dancing videos, but twerking videos have made me not want to post anything lol I’ve had a twerk session to Ciara ride that might still be on Facebook. I love dancing in sweat pants. I might make a new dancing video.
Are you in any music videos? If so what are the names of the video. If not, do you choose not to be in them?
Yes, Big Sid feat Killa Mike. Nook feat. Chalie Boy, Jimeo, I did those a few years ago, and I did a few local ones when I first started off modeling for acting skills. I’m not big music videos but I do support everyone.

You best feature are:
My body, baby hairs, cheekbones
Favorite Place to Eat: Old school Bar and Grill Downtown Austin, so relaxing and chill. They show the games and it’s still real chill.
Turn Ons: A nice Haircut, and a nice smile. Attraction turns me on with great appeal that’s respectful. Humility.
A person who is so full of their self that they feel they are the main topic. Realistically they’re not.
The best pick up line you have heard:
When it’s from a person that has appeal, “So when we get married, you know you can’t do that, right?”
The worst pick up line you have heard: “Ayeeeeee, shawty in the red… yea, you red! Come here”
If a guy wanted to instantly impress you he must:
Make me laugh and be my friend, but know the difference between friend zones.
