1. How did you get started as a plus size model?
I've always wanted to become a model and I have an athletic build and physique. In the fashion industry anything above a size 4-6 is considered plus size. The average american size woman is a size 14 and recently there has been more opportunity in the modeling industry for plus size models. This gave me the confidence to walk into TRUE Model Management and pursue one of my dreams.
2. If you could spend an hour with any Celebrity, who would it be and why?
If I could spend an hour with any celebrity I would choose Angelina Jolie. I love how family oriented she is, educated, smart, and well rounded, She is a goodwill ambassador and takes care of her body for the benefit of herself and her family. Plus I love her style.
