What is the #1 thing you love about being a model? And how did you get your start?
I love getting all dolled up at photoshoots. I’ve worked with some awesome stylists/makeup artists. It’s almost like my alter-ago comes out to play! I basically just started shooting with some local photographers, and networking with other people in the industry. I slowly started to see more and more opportunities.
How was it to be on worldstarhiphop.com? That site gets a lot of attention.
I hate to say it, but I honestly had not heard of them before they contacted me. I’m very thankful for the opportunity, and the amount of recognition I received from it.
What is your all-time favorite picture?
I don’t think I could pick just one. Plus, the best is yet to come!
What would be your dream photo shoot?
I’ve always thought it would be fun to do an underwater shoot with dolphins or sea turtles. I’m, obviously a fan of The Little Mermaid. Lol.
Do you have a Style icon or a Model icon?
Not really. There are several people/places I look to for inspiration, but I definitely try to do my own thing.
Do you do any special exercise routines to keep yourself in excellent shape?
I’ve always had a naturally curvy body, but I do strength training to stay in shape, and occasionally (but rarely) I’ll do some light cardio.
What do you do on your down time?
I love to watch Family Guy, cook, play with my two dogs, and spend time with my family.
What’s the craziest yet cutest thing a guy has said about your body? lol
Let me think about that one. Lol. I don’t normally remember things like that unless they are just really hilarious. One time a guy told me that if I was a Transformer, my name would be Optimus Fine. I thought that was pretty funny.
Who would be your MCM on instagram if you did one?
Definitely SoMo. He’s a writer, has an amazing voice, and seems like an interesting person. I know what you’re thinking, and no, those abs don’t hurt either.
Three CD’s you’re currently listening to?
1. Lace Up-MGK
2. Music Box-Mariah Carey
3. Spreading Rumours-Grouplove
If you had to spend one million dollars in one day how would you spend it?
I would pay off my car and student loans for starters. Then, I would walk around public places, looking for people doing nice things for other people, and give them $1,000 per “good deed.” After a few hours, I would split what was left over between my parents, brothers, and grandparents. I can’t think of one single material thing that would bring me more happiness than making my family happy.
How can we get you in #Cosign boy shorts? lol Seriously though…
Send me some! I love boy shorts!
