What are some of the most memorable experiences you’ve had thus far in your career?

Definitely going to China was so crazy. I went with my dad, and going to a different side of the world and seeing the different culture was so cool to me. Another awesome memory I have is running around fashion week for the first time with my mom.

What is the best part about working in the modeling industry?

The best part for me is being able to meet different people from all around the world traveling! I’ve gotten to visit places I probably never would have gone to if I wasn’t in the modeling industry.

How has your life changed since having a baby?

It’s making me take myself more seriously, as weird as that sounds. Having a baby has for sure taught me patience and has made me beyond motivated!

What was your experience like working with renowned photographer Hugh Lippe for your VMAN39 shoot?

He was rad! The shoot was super easy and it felt effortless working with him.

How would you describe your style and what are the designers you tend to gravitate towards?

The best word I can use to describe it is classic. I’m weirdly obsessed with vintage clothes. There’s always a couple things most designers create that I really like.

What do you hope to achieve in your career in the next coming years?

I would really love to have a film or two under my belt in the next couple of years, as well as collaborate with more designers and magazines.
