ONETEN Magazine: So, how does it feel to be making your first cover? AMAZING! It is such an honor to be able to grace the cover. It’s such a great feeling, and I am still so excited!
ONETEN Magazine: How long have you been modeling for, and how did you get started?
I been modeling since I was 14. It has always been something I loved to do and I always had a passion for it as a kid. So one day I just told my mother that’s what I wanted to do and she would take me to different modeling agencies and castings, and from there I just stuck with it ever since.
ONETEN Magazine: Can you tell us about you very first photo shoot and how was that experience?
My first photo shoot was when I first got into modeling about 10 years ago, I was so nervous, but after the first couple minutes of being in front of the camera I got over my nerves and the shoot turned out great, and I had fun. That’s when I knew that this was something I wanted to continue to do.
ONETEN Magazine: Outside of modeling, what do you like to do for fun? Other than shopping of course lol, I love to sing and dance. Even though modeling has always been my main priority. Dance and singing has also been something I loved doing as well.
