Place of Origin:
I’m from Spring Hill, Tennessee, about thirty minutes Nashville.

Ethnic Origin:
I’m 1/3 White, 1/3 Black, and 1/3 Brazilian/Native American.

Birthsign:
I’m not really into astrology, but friends have told me I’m a Virgo.

How discovered:
I was shopping on in a shoe store when my mother agent found me. This was two years ago when I was sixteen and still had braces.

What was your first modeling job?
My first “job” was a shoot for a boutique in downtown Franklin. A creative collaboration mainly. My first paying job though was a hair show down in Atlanta. It was so much fun to get my hair done and have a free spa day.

Favorite things:
I love writing short stories, sketching, and playing my ukulele. I’m not a pro at any of them in my opinion, but doing them make me happy. One thing I could not live without is definitely coffee.

What are you listening to at the moment?
Podcasts. I just discovered podcasts on Spotify and I’m obsessed. I especially love Lore Podcast. But when I’m in a music mood I like to turn on alternative rock. Not that I’m too cool for full on rock and roll, I just really like Fall Out Boy.

Favorite movie, tv show:
As for movies I’m all for anything Disney and/or Tim Burton. My favorite TV show is torn between Supernatural and Sherlock.

Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
I love watching Dior and watching their collections. They are such an iconic brand. I don’t usually wear fragrances but I was gifted Givenchy III perfume by Monster Givenchy and love it. The beauty product I will swear by is coconut oil. You can never go wrong with its many uses and benefits.

What were you doing before modeling?
I was finishing up high school and working part-time at a Windsor Fashion.

What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
If I wasn’t modeling I would probably still be working and going to school to become a massage therapist. And I still want to do that.

What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
Not that it’s uncool to do, but I love listening to people’s life stories. Where they’ve been and what they’ve done to get where they are now. Everyone is so complex and unique.

Favorite modeling experience so far?
I’d have to go with being flown out to Paris to walk for Dior this past March. It was the most amazing week I’ve ever had and I can’t wait to see what can top that.

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
I love how small and laidback it is. Nothing too far away and you don’t have crazy drivers like New York does. I miss driving on the backroads.

Which brand would you really love to model for?
Well, I’ve already hit my dream runway of Dior, but I would really love to walk their couture collection. And of course, I would like to do a cover shoot for a big magazine.

Place you would love to visit:
I want to step foot in as many countries and states as I possibly can. Every place has something unique to offer.

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
Something completely random I’m learning is shorthand writing. It’s becoming a lost art and I think its such a cool way to record your thoughts way faster.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
You are enough.
