Tell us about yourself
I’m 21 and I’m from Stamford, CT. I’ve been playing the piano since I was 4 years old. Music is a major passion of mine. I’ve also been singing since I was 8.
What is your biggest dream?
To be a major role in a big movie. I want to see myself on a big movie theatre screen. I get chills just thinking about it.
What does it mean to be your own kind of beautiful?
I would say “To be who you are” but I feel like everyone says that. More specifically - to be happy. To not only be happy with who you are, but with the life around you.
Tell us about your modeling experience.
I’ve done several pageants including Miss Connecticut. I’ve also worked with Richard Kissi and Dorthy Shi.
What is your dream brand to model for?
Jovani, Sherri Hill, Vera Wang Bridal & Victoria’s Secret.
How would you describe your fashion style?
Glam with a mix of Hippie.
How important is self-awareness and confidence to you in your everyday life?
Vital. It’s necessary to have everyday. You can’t be productive without it.
What makes you beautiful/handsome?
I feel most beautiful when I’m laughing. A good gut laugh where you can’t breathe. It makes me feel on top of the world and it’s when I feel the most calm. That’s beauty to me.
What would you say to another girl/guy your age who is struggling with their confidence?
To believe in yourself. You’re stronger than you think.
