        "I want to show the younger generation of girls that, we are powerful and strong and beautiful no matter what colour your skin is, your height, body shape, sexuality etc. As girls/young women, we should feel confident and beautiful within ourselves, and not compare ourselves to societies standards of what a “real women” is. "

         "I personally think that if you look good, you feel good. Working out helps me mentally and it’s a form of self care. I love eating healthy, my favourite thing to have is spicy seasoned chicken with roasted sweet potatoes and asparagus. But, when it comes to anything sweet, I can’t help myself ."

         "The advice I would give women who are new and starting modelling is; to do your research on what different types of modelling there are, and find a few types that suit your interest. When it comes to working with photographers, ask mutual friends or photographers if they have heard of them and whats their reputation like. Always bring a friend!! And if you feel like you had a bad experience or unprofessional experience, tell a photographer or model you trust, and advise others to be careful if they choose to work with them. "

" I don’t have any limitations. I think that if you start to limit yourself; you’re doubting yourself. I don’t like to doubt myself, I like to challenge and prove to myself what I can do when I stay consistent. When it comes to approaching situations where I need to voice my opinion; I keep it real, I guess that would be the best way to put it. I don’t like being taken advantage of, and in the industry, it’s easy for that to happen. So, when something doesn’t feel right, I’ll speak up and say something."

        "My interest in modelling took place when my mom was at her hair dresser's salon, and her hairdresser mentioned that one of her clients went to school for fashion and design, and she's hosting a fashion show and she's looking for models. My mom mentioned that to me, and I decided to go through with it and go to the casting call. That was my first fashion show I ever walked in, and since then I instantly fell in love. "

"My goals as a model is to work with beauty companies and also fashion brands. I want to be involved in a lot of beauty/skin care campaigns because I always loved the many different looks you can create with makeup."

"What I value most about myself is, how I push and prove to myself what I can do with hard work and consistency. The biggest accomplishment of ending off 2020 that I’m proud of is, being featured on the cover of a magazine! "

"I have a whole dream board of goals for myself that I want to do by the time I’m 30. It would take so long to tell you all the goals so I guess you’ll just have to follow me on my journey"
