Hi Josephine, please tell us a little about you?
I was born and raised in San Diego, California. I’m half Native American and half Belgian.

When I turned 16 I signed with LA Models and started really getting into it, I started being home schooled and my mom and I would drive back and forth from San Diego to Los Angeles, once or twice a week.
