Q: What does being a “curvy” model mean to you?
To me being curvy means being confident. When a curvy model walks into a room, people notice. She demands attention, because she is gorgeous and because clothes hug her curves so beautifully. There is nothing nicer than seeing an advertisement and see that a model fits into the clothes, it makes we want to buy the garment, because I know I will fit it too. As a model I have the chance to inspire, I love being in my own skin, I want to promote that message: curvy is sexy.
Q: What or whom inspires you the most?
Hard working people. Like most people I have been at cross roads in my life and Ive wanted to give up, but those around me never quit, they motivate me, and I keep going. It’s important to figure out who you are and what you are meant to do, you can’t do that in front of a TV screen all day long and you definitely can’t wait on life to come knocking on your door.
Q: Where are your favorite places to shop?
I swear this changes every day for me, I am honestly the type of girl that goes to mall and just pops her head in EVERY SINGLE store trying to find those perfect eye catching items.
Q: What is your fashion “weakness?”
Over-sized purses. I carry everything with me, because I seem to suffer from the “what if I need it?” syndrome. Therefore, when I see over-sized purse that I like, I cannot say no.
Q: What advice would you give to any new or aspiring “curvy” models?
Testing for new pictures makes all the difference. I started developing my book thanks to model mayhem. The pictures where with amateur photographers but I too was an amateur model, and even though those images are no longer in my book, it helped me learn how to command a shoot, how to move, and which angles were more flattering.
