California / Hawaii. USA.

Tell us about yourself (where are you from, age, whatever you want to add)

I am 21 years old and I live in San Diego, California. I grew up in Kauai, Hawaii and will forever call Hawaii home. 

What is your biggest dream?

My biggest dream is to travel the world, and to work in the fashion industry. 

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

To me, being your own kind of beautiful means to be comfortable in your skin, and follow your passions in all that you do. 

Tell us about your modeling experience. 

I have done print work in both California and Hawaii, as well as runway work  for bridal shows in San Diego. I have also walked in fashion week! 

What is your dream brand to model for?

My dream brands to model for are I Am Gia, Dior, and Off White. 

How would you describe your fashion style?

My style is constantly changing, since I love staying up to date on trends!  I wear a lot of dark colors, and I am a big fan of streetwear. However, I love to dress up and be girly too! 

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

Confidence is HUGE for me. I believe it is so important to be confident in your own skin in order to live a happy and successful life. It can be so hard to remain confident in the presence of social media, and my biggest goal is to help others become as confident as they can be. 

What makes you beautiful?

I think what makes me beautiful is that I am genuinely happy in my skin. I have a very adventurous spirit, and I am unique! 

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

I would tell all girls my age to stop comparing themselves to the girls they see on social media, and to embrace their own beauty. There will always be someone "prettier" than you, and that's OKAY! Focus on what makes you unique, and never forget that you are strong, and BEAUTIFUL!
