How did you get into modeling?
Well, since I was a little girl I loved posing in front of my mirror; I actually realized my passion for modeling when I did my first "photo shoot" with a friend with a Polaroid camera. I had a photographer who liked my look take some shots of me and ever since then, I've done many shoots and fashion shows and I love it!
Favorite part about modeling?
ALL OF IT! Modeling is more than just posing and taking pictures. I have a very creative/artsy and emotional side to me, so what better way than to show that through a photo? My emotions are best portrayed through a camera and I use that to my advantage.
What do you see when you look at a picture of your self from a recent shoot?
I honestly see a different girl; everything I find hard expressing and putting into words is right there in that photo.
In your opinion to what extent do models contribute to the new trends in our culture?
To a huge extent!!! The more you are known, the bigger role you have. Models are looked up to and that's why it's such a huge responsibility.
By looking at your pictures you have a very dominant and sexy look in them, what does sexy mean to you?
Sexy means confidence and loving yourself; that's the most important thing. If you don't love yourself first, then no one will love you. Sexiness is being yourself and loving who you are as an individual. When talking about the opposite sex what are your turn on's and off's?
Oh man! I'm definitely NOT a shallow girl, and I'm not just saying that ; looks, to me, is not as important as personality. My main thing about the opposite sex is a sense of humor. I'm a very silly and bubbly person so I need someone who can be silly and funny with me as well.
How do you see your self are you the party girl or you rather have dinner and a movie?
I'm not really a party girl; I prefer going to lounges or having dinners where you can have more intimate conversations. Clubs are good for when I want to go dance with the girls. (smiley face)
Music is everywhere we go, but what does music mean to you and what impact has it had on your work/personal life?
Music drives me! Actually, for most of my photo shoots, I ask the photographer to put on music because it brings out more emotions and makes the photoshoot more exciting and fun. Music is like an escape for me; I can't imagine life without it!!
A model just like a dj is always the center of attention, what similarities do you see in these two professions?
A model and a DJ constantly have to bring something new to the plate. If a model isn't versatile, she/he gets boring; same goes for a DJ: if he/she keeps playing the same music without adding a twist or playing something different, people won't enjoy their music as much anymore. Models and DJ's always have to be creative in what they do and keep their audience entertained and interested, especially because they are always the center of attention.
-Favorite places to eat? Joya (I love Thai food)
- Favorite drink? Margarita (tequila)
- Favorite song? That's a hard one because I don't have a favorite. I love house music, mainly vocals (tiesto, armin van buuren, etc.); basically, anything with nice beats and lyrics.
- 2 things about your self that most people don't notice or know about you?
I'm a pretty shy and spiritual girl. I'm also extremely smart in school! Don't let the blonde fool you
