Tell me about your modeling work if you have any past work.

Well this will be my 3rd fashion show.
I’ve modeled for a couple clothing lines: Hybrid Nation, Elysian Clothing, Bold Maniere, Gold Vision, Etc. I’m currently the face of a clothing line featured in fashion week called Nubae.

Why did you choose to pursue a career as a model?

I choose to pursue a career as a model due to lack of self awareness.
I didn’t have the self love or happiness in myself because I was only focusing on the negativity, and not being appreciative towards the things I had.  Modeling in front of a camera and walking down those runways didn’t only help me build confidence in my self, it also helped me realize my self worth and bring out a better me.

What are your goals as a model?

My goals as a model are simple .. I want to start a recruitment team of independent individuals, that seek to not only better themselves, but their craft and those around them through self awareness and creative platform where your voice matters. There’s more to it but this just a brief summary.

Why do you want to work as a model?

I want to work as a model for the simple fact that there’s not a lot of black models out there. I want to model for those who’s to scared too model, voice there opinion, or  don’t have enough confidence in themselves. I’m the voice that’s in your head, that tells you that you can do it when you tell yourself you can’t. I’m capable of so much more then just modeling it’s just one of my talents. I want to use my voice as a platform for those in need of self awareness, who don’t know there worth. You can lose yourself in a world like this  with so much poison temptation and negative vibes but I want to help find a way to bring of the best of people.

What are your greatest accomplishments so far?

My greatest accomplishments so far would be landing the face of Nubae! And getting in to this fashion week!

How do you define success?

I define success as persistence.

Who is your role model in this industry?

My role model in the industry would be Joey Badass! He’s not only a good rap artist, but he’s a good influence on the fashion world and his versatility is killer !

Tell us about your life outside of modeling, who you are as a person

Outside of modeling I’m very in tune with my family, they are all I got left. I’m very protective when it comes to them, defiantly with my sisters. I come from a family of 9, having a big family is pretty dope I love it. Everyone doesn’t always see eye to eye though. I enjoy reading, writing and making music, I also do customs from shirts, jeans to hats, I currently work at foot locker, and I enjoy putting outfits together. I will change the modeling industry, and spark change in the world, but I know I can’t do it alone. I need a team, that’s another reason I started the recruitment team. To bring those who see the vision close, its not gone be easy, but I’m up for the challenge. I’m to dedicated, passionate, and self driven to stop. My pops always told me “if that’s what you want to do DO THE DAMN THANG, don’t let no one tell you different” so I’m on a mission and I got tunnel vision.
