When did you begin your career as an influencer/model? 
I actually started to grow my Instagram a lot earlier than most people would probably think. I started in high school, nearly a decade ago and I used to get dressed up and take photos in my backyard. I didn’t start monetizing my social media until years later after I went on Love Island USA in 2020. I was fortunate that the show gave me a platform to pursue lifestyle content creation more full time.

Where was your favorite place you visited in Belize? 
Experiencing Belize for the first time was so incredible. It’s difficult to choose just one place, but I think that our time in Hopkins was my favorite. I like to make it a priority when I travel to immerse myself in the culture and learn more about the history of where I’m visiting, and on the final two days of the trip in Hopkins we did just that. Our local photographer/tour guide/comedian/bird enthusiast Dirk, drove us all throughout the town of Hopkins, sharing stories and anecdotes only a local would know. We laughed and learned so much about Belize through our time in Hopkins thanks to Dirk and the Belize Tourism Bureau.

City getaway or tropical getaway? 
That is a tough decision…with the magazine I’ve only traveled to tropical destinations but I LOVE experiencing a new city. Honestly I’ll take any opportunity to see somewhere new. Call me and I’m there!

Do you have any exciting upcoming projects that you can share with our readers?

In January 2022 I launched my first collection of merchandise for my brand, “Out Of His League,” and after lots of trial and error and hundreds of orders worldwide, we’ve decided to make some big changes! Stay tuned. Spring 2023!

What is your favorite thing about your career? 
The opportunity to meet so many different types of people! I realize how lucky I am to have had the experiences that I’ve had and through those meet these people that I never would have met before.

What is something about yourself most people would be surprised by? 
That I am camera shy… seriously! I get so nervous when I have my photo taken.

Which products are you loving this season to stay hydrated?
Lip balm and lotion are the most important parts of my skincare routine year round. The Image Skincare ORMEDIC balancing lip enhancement complex keeps my lips hydrated through the cold and dry seasons, then I use Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré (for my face), Johnson’s Baby Oil with Shea & Cocoa Butter (for my body in the shower), and Vaseline Intensive Care Body Lotion for Dry Skin Cocoa Radiant Lotion (for my body after my shower).

How do you balance your work life and your personal life? 
I’m still trying to figure that out! I think sometimes I tend to lean towards one extreme or another. Some days I can’t put down work, and other days I can’t pick up my phone. The thing about influencing is that unless you’re under contract with a brand, your schedule is almost entirely up to you. It sounds ideal, and in a lot of ways it is, but it also means that you have to hold yourself accountable for getting your work done. Lately I’ve been focused on creating more structure to my days and carving out time for both work and play.

Where is your dream destination to visit?
Australia is definitely on my bucket list!

What is your favorite makeup trend right now? 
Natural lashes! Eyelash extensions were so damaging (and painful) for my eyes and applying strip lashes has always been difficult for me, so embracing my natural lashes has been a blessing.

Are you an introvert or an extrovert? 
I would consider myself an extroverted introvert. When I’m at an event or hosting I am mingling and talking to everyone, but the rest of the time I tend to keep to myself. That’s why I am so thankful for my friends and family, because they understand how I operate and they know that just because I value my “me time” doesn’t mean I love them any less!

What makes you feel confident? 
When I stay on top of my self care routine, including fresh nails, fresh hair, and a fresh tan.

The best advice you can give someone who wants to pursue a modeling/ content creator career?
Remember your reasons for getting into this business. It’s never going to be easy, and at times you’re going to feel like giving up, so you have to be able to remind yourself why you got started in the first place.

What would you like to say to your fans/followers?
Words cannot express how much my fans and followers mean to me. Their unconditional support has given me strength during some of my toughest times. I truly appreciate how they have my back, because I always have theirs!
