What advice would you give to an individual looking to enter the modeling industry?
The best advice I could give someone entering the modeling industry is to just be yourself and don’t let anyone change you. Everyone’s beautiful in their own ways and the industry can be harsh, so never lose sight of who you are and know that you’re beautiful in your own unique way.
What does your workout routine consist of and how do you stay motivated?
I usually work out four or five times a week for an hour or so. These workouts typically consist of weightlifting for 45 minutes and cardio for 15 minutes. I honestly just enjoy lifting so that in of itself keeps me motivated.
What are some of the challenges you face (if any) when it comes to having such a significant social media presence, and what do you do to overcome them?
Having a big following on social media has its fair share of challenges. One of the biggest ones I face is putting out content consistently. Sometimes I just have days where I want to be lazy and not post anything. To overcome this I tell myself that it’s a job and that I’m lucky to be in the position I am. This usually keeps me motivated. Another challenge that comes with social media is being under a magnifying glass. This hasn’t really been a problem for me, but I’ve seen it become a big problem for other people with large followings. I’ve always been conscious of people around me and I think it has helped me a lot.
When not in front of the camera, what do you like to do in your free time?
When I’m not in front of the camera I love to be outside going to the beach and playing soccer. I also enjoy reading books and spending time with my family. I honestly enjoy anything that gets me out of the house and moving around.
What would be a dream project for you?
A dream project for me would be any film where I get to hang out with the cast and they become sort of like a family to me. I just feel like it would be so fun being on set every day with people that are your close friends.
