Why do you like modeling?

Modeling is my escape; when I’m on the runway I feel as if I’m on top of the world and no one can intimidate me. Every experience brings a new life lesson.

Your fashion icons and why?

Tyra Banks because she tells you to have fun while doing it; Naomi Campbell because she’s the definition of fierce; and Miss J Alexander because he is a fashion icon. He has worked with both Tyra and Naomi and other super models.

Your favorite fashion designer and why?

Each designer have their own unique style and I’m not a picky person. I wear whatever makes me feel comfortable. Someone I have worked with—La’moo Designs– she is just incredible. Her garments I considered classy and soft. Her pieces remind me of Marilyn Monroe.

Describe your wardrobe choices when not modeling.

I like dressing up whether it’s trendy casual or professional. Trendy casual meaning jeans, blazer, and a cute flats or wedge. Professional meaning business casual: pencil skirt, blouse, and heels.

What’s your guilty pleasure?

I’m obsessed with chocolate! And I enjoy shoe shopping whether it’s buying them or eye shopping.

The one thing you can never leave the house without.

My to go makeup box, as cliche as it sounds

Favorite music

I enjoy the different genres of music. Hip Hop/R&B is number 1 on my list.

Favorite food

I was born and raised in Jamaica but I enjoy Japanese food.
