West Virginia, USA.
Tell us about yourself.
I am from a little town in West Virginia. I am 16 years old, and I play volleyball for my high school!
What is your biggest dream?
My Biggest dream is to become a pediatric nurse. I absolutely love kids, and I try to help people to the best of my ability, so what could be better than being able to help little kids!
What does it mean to be your own kind of beautiful?
Being my own kind of beautiful means, being able to be myself and not be ashamed of it. Being able to dress however I want and feel beautiful no matter what anyone thinks is the key. Everyone is beautiful in their own sort of way, they just have to find what fits them best!
Tell us about your modeling experience.
I have never modeled. I have always enjoyed getting my pictures taken and people have told me that I should look into modeling, but I never have until now! I am very excited to see where this takes me in hoping to kick off a modeling career.
What is your dream brand to model for?
I would love to model for Sherri Hill and Nike. It sounds silly because they are two completely things, but I love Sherri Hill dresses and I wear all Nike equipment for sports so it would be awesome to model for them!
How would you describe your fashion style?
My fashion style kind of all depends on how I’m feeling for the day. Some days I wear athletic wear, some days I wear semi-formal wear, and some days I just mix it up. Just depends on the day!
How important is self-awareness and confidence to you in your everyday life?
Self- awareness and confidence is extremely important to me. Growing up, I always struggled with self confidence, never wanting to express myself, or be myself cause I was afraid of how people would react or see me. Then I grew into my shoes and started to express myself little by little each day. My self-confidence is so important to me, as it should be to every girl/guy in the world. Everyone deserves to love themselves. They should honor who they are and show it!
What makes you beautiful?
I feel as if my personality makes me beautiful. I have a very bubbly personality, I try to make then environment happy around me, I hate seeing people upset. I try to make the best outcomes of a bad situation.
What would you say to another girl your age who is struggling with their confidence?
Just to be yourself. I was in you shoes at one point and I never opened my eyes and realized that I was beautiful. everyone has heir own kind of beautiful, and for some it just takes longer to find it than others and that’s perfectly okay! Just be yourself and the right people will accept you for who you are and love you unconditionally. Express yourself, and do what makes you happy and don’t worry what anyone thinks negative about you, because it’s what you think of yourself that matters.
