WHAT MAKES YOU #VERYYOU?
I have a huge personality. I am always just me.
WHAT IS THE MOST PRESSING ISSUE FOR WOMEN? WHAT DO YOU WANT TO SEE CHANGED?
Owning your individuality. Not shrinking yourself to fit societal norms. A lot of women are trying to empower women but aren’t differentiating themselves. Focus on your self-empowerment first, before empowering other women.
WHAT’S THE BIGGEST RISK YOU’VE EVER TAKEN? DID IT PAY OFF?
Moving to LA by myself after high school when I was 18. It paid off because I’m still doing what I came to do!
WHAT’S ONE THING THAT GIVES YOU CONFIDENCE?
Feeling good from the inside out…especially after a workout or something healthy. I enjoy nurturing myself, personal wellness and taking time for myself.
SOCIAL MEDIA HAS EVOLVED INTO A POWERFUL TOOL FOR CHANGE, ESPECIALLY FOR THE CURRENT GENERATION OF TOP MODELS. HOW DO YOU MAKE IT WORK FOR YOU?
I’m cautious about how I use my social media platform. I try to keep in mind that I have a versatile following. I’m Black, White and Native American so being mindful of everyone I can connect to is important to me. My social media reflects what I’m doing to motivate and inspire.
