What can people expect to see from your social media platforms?
Photos and videos of my favorite moments/projects of my life!
Can you share insight into the process of creating the platform you have today? What challenges did you overcome and which part seemed seamless?
I created my social media when I was in high school wanting to connect and have fun with friends around me. It blossomed into a platform that has helped support my true passions in life: Painting, Modeling, and Photography. I encountered a few challenges when I just trusted my judgment and didn’t take it too seriously. Understanding that you can never capture someone’s true essence as a human through a platform is also a crucial revelation!
What’s something people would be surprised to know about you?
I love camping & being outdoors.
What’s a goal in your career you hope to accomplish?
I would love to see my paintings in a gallery one day. As a model, I would love to work on some intricate artistic projects with brands like Burberry, Dior, YSL, Bulgari and Ralph Lauren.
What and who inspires you most? Why?
Everything that encompasses the earth we live on inspires me- it is the foundation of our dreams and aspirations.
As an influencer, how do you hope to influence people through your platform?
If anything, I want to inspire creativity.
Who are your favorite content creators?
I’d say @matildadjerf @yazemeenah
What are three items in your closet you cannot live without?
My cowboy boots
A soft bathing suit top
Essential product in your beauty routine?
Sunscreen, Chanel Le Gel & Aveeno Lotion.
What was your favorite part of staying at ACRE? What activities would you recommend for someone looking to visit?
I absolutely loved the villas and the fresh mangoes! For activities I’d say chatting with the people at ACRE and trying the dishes on the menu!
What does the remainder of 2021 look like for you?
The exciting part about our lives is that we can’t tell the future. But I’d say lessons and growth!
What advice do you have for someone who aspires to have a career like your own?
Trust your inner compass from the start!
What would you like to say to your fans?
I’m grateful for the opportunities I have. I hope to continue to inspire and be inspired by you.
