How did you start in modeling?
I started modeling 5 years ago, when I told my parents I wanted to be a model, started doing photoshoots with different designers and photographers, my name was mentioned among the brands and I’ve been modeling since then.
Something funny that happened during a casting?
One day I was in a swimsuit casting and the panty liner tape got stuck in my outfit and I walked the catwalk all the way with that on and no one told me, I caught it right after i finished. It was really an embarrassing moment.
What does fashion mean to you?
For me fashion is relative, it comes and goes, there are things on trend now that will stop trending and will come back later on, but i feel every person can make their own Brand through fashion.
Who is your greatest beauty inspiration?
Winnie Harlow is my biggest inspiration in the fashion industry, for me she’s a complete model and her contribution is limitless.
What are your goals as a model?
As a model my goal is to work with the best of the industry in my country, work in different fashion campaigns and my top goal is to be internationally recognized in this industry.
How did you stay in shape?
I’ve always been sport oriented, keeping a good nutrition and also going to the gym every day at 6 am.
What is fun and rewarding about modeling?
What I love about this industry is photo shooting, it is like becoming a character every time showing different aspects of what is beauty. Is pleasant to see the results and I am looking forward to making my dreams come true as a model.
What can we expect from you in 2021?
This 2021 you guys can expect to see me working with big brands, music videos and as a matter of fact there are big upcoming projects.
