How Long have you been Modeling:* Since I was about 9 or 10 actually.
How did you get started:* My grandfather did art and photography in his free time, so he was experimenting I guess and I went along with it. LOL
Tell us about yourself:* I am a mother of one, a 7 yr old little boy. I work for the government. I am a music fanatic, and I listen to EVERYTHING, I absolutely love music. I write as well. I love to play softball, basketball and volleyball. I love to promote, and host my online radio show. I also love to cook and travel.
Why do you want to work as a model?:* I guess it’s something I grew into liking because of my grandfather, then when I started back as an adult, it was a whole new ball game of course, and it became something I wanted to progress and excel in.
Why are you interested in this Career? :* I love the many faces of modeling, and want to be able to experience all of them. It’s fun to go into characters, you learn so much about yourself.
What are your goals as a model?:* I would like to get into high fashion and succeed in that as a black non skinny model lol, to be published in magazines of all sorts, and I also want to eventually discover and manage models. I’ve always had the acting bug as well.
How do you see yourself progress in this field?:* I see myself being able to be one of the best in my own unique way, with hard work and continued determination, I will get there. I am a perfectionist, but I don’t want to let that hinder me, so I’m learning as I go and from great mentors.
What are you likes and dislikes?:* There are pros and cons just like anything else, but I don’t pinpoint either one, because it can delay you. So I just take the good with the bad, and learn from my own experiences and people around me who are in the same industry.
What is your availability? Traveling? Full-time, part time? hours?* My availability varies, right now, I do most projects on the weekends, and I have part time hours that began after 5 during the week if I have something going on. I do also travel and make plans in advance, since I still work a full time job mon-friday. I also will be moving to my hometown of Dallas, Texas at the end of the summer, so I will have much more work to do now that I will be moving back to a bigger area.
The last word for your viewers & fans:* Follow me on my social networks, artists contact me for features on my blog and radio show, and watch out for me this year as I will be shining a little bit brighter . “Love and Live Life how you want while you still here, it’s far too short to live it any other way. Muah!”
