When did you begin your career as an influencer/model?
I started my career when I was 17. I was scouted in Georgia coming from dual island Jamaica.
Where was your favorite place you visited in Belize?
San Pedro took my breath away figuratively and literally. There was a moment I forgot how to swim while I was taking in the beauty and wildlife of the island.
City getaway or tropical getaway?
I mean seeing as though I was conceived on an island, I’d say tropical getaway for sure, but I never close myself off to new locations.
Do you have any exciting upcoming projects that you can share with our readers?
Yes, I’m getting ready to collaborate with a swim brand and film a commercial which I can’t talk about yet.
What is your favorite thing about your career?
I love that it changed and I love adapting to new concepts and being a model allows that. My career has put me in a place where I can shoot different facets of myself through movement on camera. It’s like silent acting in a way.
What is something about yourself most people would be surprised by?
That I can cut a coconut haha! And probably that I could survive on any island alone thanks to my parents.
Which products are you loving this season to stay hydrated?
I’ve been really into the IMAGE Skincare lip complex which I actually discovered in this getaway and also Sunnies Face blush compact.
How do you balance your work life and your personal life?
I try to limit my screen time and be present by giving myself an allotted time slot to complete things.
Where is your dream destination to visit?
Definitely New Zealand.
What is your favorite makeup trend right now?
I love to apply blush on my nose and cheeks. It’s just so fresh and healthy looking.
Are you an introvert or an extrovert?
Definitely an ambivert.
What makes you feel confident?
Peace of mind and a good brow.
The best advice you can give someone who wants to pursue a modeling/content creator career?
Don’t take rejection personally and have a strong sense of self-worth going in. Don’t lower yourself for anything or anyone.
What would you like to say to your fans/followers?
My supporters are mostly female so I feel really seen for me and who I truly am rather than being objectified.
