 At this moment in your life, what are you working towards?

I’ve always wanted to be a super model, but the meaning of a super model changed for me recently. I want to inspire, motivate and move people around me. I want to create things and rebirth myself everyday. I’m a businesswoman, artist, creator, storyteller and a spirit lifter. To me, that’s a super model.

What motivates you? 

My surroundings are a big part of my motivation and positivity. I have two close friends that keep me balanced and alive. They remind me that everything falls into place the way it’s supposed to and that I’m worthy of happiness. It’s the “becoming” of something that keeps me going and I write my journey down—especially when things get tough.

What is the hardest part of your job?  

Knowing that you want the world to see you as you—and not just an object or sex symbol. Then again, that makes me a hypocrite because the field I chose revolves around that. I guess the way I’ve dealt with it is by knowing that I’m not like everybody else. If I’m myself, maybe one day everyone will see that. Especially the modeling agencies that keep denying me because I look like someone they already have, or because I need to lose ten pounds, or whatever dumb reason they come up with. I just want people to see me, the real me.

Have you thought about leaving the modeling world?

I’m still going to be my definition of a super model. Modeling just became a part of my life because I was 13 and wanted to be a pretty girl in a magazine—that doesn’t mean anything to me now. I would rather be noticed for being an inspiration in someone’s life—even if I’ve never met him or her before. When was the last time you saw a model on a billboard and knew all the beautiful things about her spirit and not just how cool she looks in that picture? What’s the point of being a model if you’re not a role model?

Where do you want to be 20 years from now?  

In 20 years I will have already made a difference in a persons’ life. I will have published the book I’ve been writing. I will have accomplished all of my goals and I will have started to create more. In 20 years, I’m going to be a better version of myself.
