"I'm more excited than I am nervous when I'm walking in a fashion show."

Model Citizen Media provides a platform to 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 you are passionate about what you do, and your journey so far. Well I love to do alot of things but modeling is the one thing that I'm not nervous to do. I'm more excited than I am nervous when I'm walking in a fashion show. Plus I love wearing all the fabulous clothes. I just wanna smile from ear to ear because I always dreamed of that moment and when I see my pictures I can't believe that someone like me could do something that I could only dream of as a little girl. What are your goals and how do you see yourself progressing in the field? When I first started modeling I told my self that I haven't made it to where I want to be until I'm in Paris walking in Paris fashion week. Then I'll make a new dream. How do you communicate with people? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements? Well I'm only 12 so I don't do anything revealing or I should say I like to watch my boundaries. My mom is always with me as a support and helps me with any problems but on the other hand I do what I'm told and when I'm told as long as it's not inappropriate . If you had to do it over again, what would you change? I would've started younger so I could be closer of meeting my dream goals. Who is your hero, and how have they helped you get to where you are? Dawn Nelson , my mother has done every thing from moving me to a different state to model to photo shoots every weekend I could not have gotten where I am today without her help. How important are creative education courses? Have you taken any, and did you find them useful? Well I've not taken any formal classes more of just learning on the job Do you have any tips for someone who is just starting out in the industry? Well I think you should be open to new things and try it even if it's not your style it might be fun.
