What inspired you to start modeling? 

My inspiration came and still comes from inspiring those around me, as well as the people I don't know I'm inspiring.

What's the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning?

Before I even open my eyes I like to think of things I'm thankful for. When I finally get up I meditate. I usually do 10 minutes in the morning or guided meditation using Insight Timer on my phone.

Celebrity crush?

Jason Momoa!!!

Where has been your favorite place to shoot?

Las Vegas, of course!

What's your current fashion trend obsession?

Floral print shirts,pants, jumpsuits,rompers, dresses. Pretty much anything with a pretty colorful print.

Who inspires your modeling career?

My family for sure! I come from a family of women (there's a few guys, too). All the women in my family are curvy and plus size women. Being able to represent for them is such a great feeling! Being able to show the younger generation that they can follow their dreams and the power of body acceptance is so surreal!

Must-have fashion accessory?

A cute pair of flats!!!

What advice would you give to women hoping to get into the industry?

Keep going! You're going to hear, "No" but never let that stop you. Keep investing in yourself and perfecting your craft!

What was the first CD you ever bought?

Destiny's Child, "No, No, No". I played that thing non stop! It included the radio version and remix.

What's the most exciting aspect of modeling?

Meeting and getting to know new people!
