"I think everyone should follow their dreams and never give up no matter what."

Model Citizen App is the platform where we recognise fashion models, photographers, designers, makeup artists, hair stylists, creative directors, bloggers, stylists, and labels around the world. Every day, we feature an individual on Model Citizen Interviews. People get to know each of them - their hopes, challenges, aspirations and inspirations in life.

Tell us about yourself: Why do you want to work as a model? Why are you interested in modelling as a career?

I've been interested in modeling for as long as I can remember. My dream is to one day see myself on a billboard in NYC. I want to be on the front cover of magazines and I want to walk runways all over the world. I want to travel the world and explore the different fashions everywhere.

How important is modelling education: Have you attended modelling courses? What related courses or studies have you taken?

I have never taken any modeling courses. I have been considering it lately so I can be even more comfortable in my own skin.

What do you think makes someone “fit” to be a model?

I think if you have the confidence and that's truly what you want to do in life than you're "fit" to do so. I think everyone should follow their dreams and never give up no matter what.

What are your goals as a model? How do you see yourself progressing in this field?

I want to walk the runway. I want to be in and on the front cover of magazines. I want to model in other countries. I just need to keep pushing myself everyday after day to make sure my dream comes true.

How do you communicate with people? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements?

I'm a very friendly person. I believe a smile and a warm heart goes along way. I am very patient. I am one hundred percent open to clients requirements. I'm willing to do what I have to do to make my dreams come true.

Do you eat nutritiously? How often do you exercise or go to the gym?

I eat nutritiously every single day. I used to eat very bad every single day all day and then I started realizing I had no energy for anything. Now I eat very healthy. I exercise about 3-4 times a week for an hour. I want to stay young for as long as possible.

What is your dream role as a model?

My dream role is to walk runways around the world. Be on the front cover and in magazines. I would absolutely love to walk the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show one day!

Do you have any limitations? How do you define your boundaries when choosing to accept a modelling request?

I guess you could say I do and I don't have limitations. I want to stay classy but I feel some photos of models I've seen that are naked just look so elegant and beautiful. As of right now I don't see myself doing that but who knows maybe in a couple years I might.

State your availability: Would you travel? Work full-time, part time? Any hours?

I would love to travel and to work full time!

What is your most memorable experience so far?

My only memorable experience right now is when I got my portfolio started. My makeup artist and photographer was the most sweetest and helpful girls ever. They helped me be more confident in my own skin and taught me a couple things that I'm very thankful for. These two girls made me feel like a goddess.
