Tell us about yourself.
I am from a small country town called Morrow, I have lived here my whole life. I am 18 years old. I have been in dance and gymnastics since I was 3 years old. I have always loved animals. I have three dogs, one of which is a rescue we found on the side of the road.
What is your biggest dream?
My biggest dream is to model the cover of a magazine.
What does it mean to be your own kind of beautiful?
To me, being your own kind of beautiful means not being afraid to stand out and be yourself. Whether it be wearing those shoes that may be different than everyone else’s, or not faking to have the same personality as everyone else because that’s the “cool” thing to do. Just be you.
Tell us about your modeling experience.
I have always loved having my picture taken, I was even on an advertisement for my dance studio as a kid. I always find myself looking at photos, whether it be ones of myself to see how I can improve, or Vogue for inspiration. I’m constantly looking, I love it.
What is your dream brand to model for?
There are so many brands that I could choose, but my dream brand has to be Louis Vuitton.
How would you describe your fashion style?
I would describe my fashion style as elegant/ bold. I enjoy graceful looks, but i also enjoy very unique looks.
How important is self-awareness and confidence to you in your everyday life?
Self awareness and confidence is very important in my everyday life, I believe everyone deserves to feel beautiful. I see people pick themselves apart in the girls bathroom in front of the mirror, and see that a lot of people are just too critical of themselves. They are beautiful, inside and out. In everyday life I try not to only be self aware but aware of others and spread positivity when I can.
What makes you beautiful/handsome?
I believe looks contribute to beauty, but your soul is what makes you beautiful. You could be the most gorgeous human alive, be a nasty person to others, and not be beautiful.
What would you say to another girl/guy your age who is struggling with their confidence?
I would tell them that God makes no mistakes. God created them in his image, and they are beautiful. Be proud of who they were born to be.
