Where are you from?
I’m from Honolulu, Hawaii.
Summer plan you’re looking forward to?
I feel like we might be going to Costa Rica, or hopefully back to Hawaii.
A fact people would be surprised to know about you?
A fact people would be surprised to know about me is I own a coffee shop and a drink company, but I also used to be a professional hula dancer.
Beauty product you couldn’t live without?
A beauty product I can’t live without is a toss up between sunscreen, because practicing sun safety, or lip balm.
What’s a song you can listen to on repeat?
Actually, there are many songs, but just basically the whole Beatles album. I’ve known every single word of every single album since I was like five years old.
What’s a top highlight of your career so far?
A top highlight of my career so far isat the moment I’ve gone into a really good flow where all of my work has come together between my coffee shop and my drink company as well as modeling and influencing. I’m really happy to be where I am and I can’t wait to see where I go.
What’s your favorite time of day?
My favorite time of day is definitely sunset. I just love golden hour. Give me a drink on the beach. It’s everything to me.
What’s one thing you’ve always wanted to do but have been scared to try?
Okay, so I have a really weird thing that I’ve always wanted to do but never have because I’ve kind of been scared, but not in the way you’d expect. I’ve always wanted to go swim with great white sharks, but the opportunity that I had to do it was in South Africa, but I was too scared because the water was freezing.
Any projects you’re currently working on?
The project I’m currently working on is a secret project coming up with my drink company, Kira, and we are launching something really special and some new flavors.
What do you love most about your bestie Helen Owen’s new swimwear line launch?
I love everything Helen does because she puts her whole heart into it and she’s actually a really funny person. You don’t expect it, but she really cares about what everyone thinks and how everyone feels about things, so I’m really just most excited to support Helen and her new swim line.
