Tell us about yourself.
I am from Wilmington Delaware, I am 18 years old unfortunately, and am a full time animal lover, because who could hate cute fluffy animals.
What is your biggest dream?
My biggest dream is to help and change the lives of people who may not have the things I have, or maybe are struggling and feel alone. There is nothing worse than feeling alone.
Tell us about your modeling experience.
I don’t have much modeling experience, I just know ever since I was 5 years old and was hooked on watching ANTM, it was something I’ve always been passionate about.
What does it mean to be your own kind of beautiful?
It means to try and embrace who you are , which trust me I know is so hard and challenging. It may be cliche to say everyone is unique but it’s nothing but the truth. In all honesty no ONE looks exactly as you do and we all have little qualities that makes us who we are.
What is your dream brand to model for?
My dream brand would maybe be Victoria’s Secret because for me personally it is the ultimate goal. In all honesty though I’d be happy with anything I can get and take in stride the opportunities I am affiliated with.
How would you describe your fashion style?
My fashion style is simple but chic. I don’t try and go over the top, and I try to keep my style cute.
How important is self-awareness and confidence to you in your everyday life?
It is SO SO SO SO important!!! It is so important to be self aware and be confident. In a world where there are so so so many beautiful human beings. You need to love you for who are you and not try and be like everyone else. I know this is easier said than done and I as well struggle with this but if you allow your insecurities to over take your every thought. It will in all honesty make you feel as if you’re drowning.
What makes you beautiful?
I’d like to say my personality makes me beautiful. I don’t try and be like everyone else. I stick to who I am and what energy I want to put out in the world.
What would you say to another girl your age who is struggling with their confidence?
As a girl who struggles herself, I would say it’s not always easy loving who you are. It’s a difficult task and sometimes just takes time. I could say “ don’t think negative thoughts you’re beautiful”. With all of the kind words in the world, it won’t necessarily automatically change your opinions. Everyone could say the kindest things and you may still feel insecure. It doesn’t matter what other people think it only matters what you think of yourself. I’d recommend telling yourself every day that you’re beautiful. This may sound silly but it does help. Insecurities are common and make you human, but don’t ever let them define who you are as a person.
