Tell us about yourself

I am 14 years old and a Freshman in high school. I was born in Minnesota but now live near Orlando, Florida and I’m loving the beautiful weather here! I competed in All-Star cheerleading for the past 5 years. Now I’m participating in my high school’s competitive cheer team as well as their sideline cheer team. In the Spring, I plan on joining the track team. In addition, I know how to play two instruments: the trumpet and oboe. I enjoy traveling, exploring new places, baking, and art.

What is your biggest dream?

To travel the world, explore new cultures, and continue to broaden my horizons and life experiences. I would love to do more modeling and someday walk in NYFW and see myself on the pages of Vogue! After high school, I want to attend college and aspire to be an anesthesiologist or go into sports medicine!

What does it mean to be your own kind of beautiful?

It means that we are all unique and beautiful in our own special ways! There isn’t one standard definition of beauty. Embrace whatever it is that makes you unique. Be yourself and don’t be afraid to stand out from the crowd!

Tell us about your modeling experience. 

I am new to modeling and looking forward to soaking up as many different experiences as I can! I have done some personal photoshoots with some amazing photographers and enjoy learning and building upon my modeling skills!

What is your dream brand to model for?

There are so many amazing brands out there that I would love to model for Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and Oscar de la Renta are a few of my dream brands! However, there’s nothing more fun than discovering new designers and trying new styles!

How would you describe your fashion style?

On an everyday basis I love to be casual and comfortable. I love athletic wear, or a good pair of skinny jeans! It’s fun to take a casual look and accessorize to give that look a different spin! I also enjoy it when I have the opportunity to dress up! What girl doesn’t love a beautiful gown and getting all glammed up?!

How important is self-awareness and confidence to you in your everyday life?

I try to be confident in everything that I do! It’s okay to make mistakes because we only learn and grow from them. Self-awareness allows us to be present in the moment. It gives us the opportunity to set goals and better ourselves on a daily basis.

What makes you beautiful/handsome?

My kind heart and giving spirit! I love to help others and show compassion. It’s important to not only be beautiful on the outside, but on the inside as well! I am also not afraid to be true to myself and show my individuality!

What would you say to another girl/guy your age who is struggling with their confidence?

You are beautiful, special, and important just the way you are! The world would be so boring if we all looked the same, thought the same, and dressed the same. Don’t be afraid to do some soul-searching and show the world who you are!
