World Class Models Magazine: Please tell us about your modeling experience.
I have been modeling for 4 years it wasn’t an easy road but I’ve accomplished a lot. I’ve been on one magazine cover it was for a Photograph back in 2017, also came in the daily observer in 2018 on Valentine’s Day I was so proud and happy that day, I did a runway show at pulse Model Agency I wasn’t signed but I auditioned and got in but you had to go through a competition first which I hate I didn’t finish I stopped before the final show but I got runway training there, I walked for a designer on national television (TVJ) in 2018. In 2019 I did a lot of photoshoots with a lot of people.
2020 was a hard one but I still made shoots happen. But Having The Tyra Banks reposted me on Instagram was the most validating thing that can happen to a model but even more a petite model. She acknowledged and spoke about me" that I was what the world should look at, This was the best day for me because I’ve looked up to her since the day I fell IN LOVE with modeling while watching her on America Next Top Model. I also won a competition and became the face of the makeup line called Lechamp Cosmetics. I am going to keep working hard because there’s a lot more I can accomplish with the help of god.
