What has been your most significant accomplishment in the industry so far? Just being recognized by the industry. I am looking to do big things in '08 and it has already started with a bang! I have been contacted by 3 major national publications, so that lets me know that I am being seen.
Ever thought about acting? I am planning to take that route in 2008 - Acting is a very scary thought for me but you don’t know your not good at something until you’ve tried and failed... I may be the next Halle...
What are you dreams/goals in life? Ultimately I wanna be an icon for young people to look up to... show young girls that being stick skinny isn’t beautiful and that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes... I just started wearing my hair natural to show that being ethnic is beautiful.
Where will you be in 5 years? At the top
Do you like to travel? I love to travel and experience new things
What is your favorite place to visit? I love New York... it is my second home. I would be living in Belize if I could* it is beautiful.
What Makes you feel sexy? To be wet.... water is so sensual to me
Has anyone every tried to hold you back in life? Yes most definitely, but as I have progressed they’ve remained stagnant... that’s life
What can guys do to be more attractive to women? Don’t try so hard.... you can't keep the lie up forever.
If you could meet anyone dead or alive, who would it be, and why? I would say TI cuz he is suppose to be my babies daddy BUT it would probably be Nas or Timberland they are both very talented at what they do and to be around someone who is so compassionate is often inspirational*. Plus I’m a hip-hop head* Nas is one of my favorite artists and whatever Timberland touches turns to gold.
What is the best compliment you ever had? That I was very intelligent* In the modeling industry you are often seen as just being an object* that picture of me with the Calculus book was actually a shoot where I was studying for my finals* there is more to life then just being pretty.
Any Sex Tips? Let go and don’t think too much about it* it’s a lot more fun that way
Tell us something story about your PET: Just yesterday I went to go clean Pucci’s kitty box and there was a little square of toilet paper lying on the floor* the thought crossed my mind, “is Pucci wiping her little kitty booty?”
Who has been the most inspiration person in your life? Tyra banks* that girl is out there doing anything and everything and she seems to be so down to earth. She has by far surpassed what a super model could ever be* everyone knows who she is!
What advice do you have for upcoming models? Shoot- shoot - shoot* you get better with practice* you get to know your good angles, what looks hot and what doesn’t* ask the photographer to see the entire shoot so you know what works for you and what doesn’t. Also get together with a group of girls, there is nothing worse then in the glamour business going to shoot with a photographer and being placed in a compromising situation. If you have others there to support you your less likely to be pressured to takes photos your not comfortable taking* plus your gonna need the support. (MV - This is excellent advice)
