What is the best thing that has ever happened to you?
I think the best thing that has ever happened to me was when I landed a job as an intern in the Marketing/Events department at Experience Auto Group. I was given the chance to have a job in an official office environment, the people I met and worked with at this job were amazing and so welcoming. I also got to travel all over Long Island the whole summer.
What is your favorite part about being a woman?
My favorite part of being a woman is being a role model for my younger cousins and students.
Who is your favorite role model?
My favorite role model is my mom. I know that’s kinda cheesy but she’s everything I wanna be as a woman. She’s friendly, funny, kind, caring, hardworking, can stand on her on two feet without help and can be a bitch when she needs to be.
What is your dream in life?
My dream life is leading a happy and healthy life. This dream life also includes living in either California, Florida or my home state New York, landing a job with a clothing company to take their product/ social media images.
I’m hoping that this job will make me financially stable so that my future family and I can have a easy going lifestyle without having to stress over money.
Are you following your dream?
I am following my dream 100% right now! I am currently getting my BFA in Photography at the New Hampshire Institute of Art. Getting this degree will help me get my foot in the door into the art and advertising/ commercial world.
When I’m not going to school, I’m doing the other thing I love which is modeling. Whether its me who’s actually doing the modeling or teaching my students how to model, I get joy from it all.
Have you ever been published in a print or digital magazine before?
I have been published. Boston Designer Luna Jochim uses me as a model in her annual catalog. I’ve also be published in Elite Status Couture Magazine Feb/March 2018 edition.
What’s your favorite clothing brand / store?
My favorite clothing brand/store was Charlotte Russe because their jeans fit me AMAZING!!! But sadly they are going out of business. I really love Fashion Nova and Forever 21 because I’m all for fast fashion trends right now.
What is your “happy place”?
My “happy place” is the beach. There’s something about listening to the waves crash up against the shore and smell of the ocean that is just super relaxing.
What’s most important to you?
Having friends and family that can be a strong support system and that will have your back no matter what.
What’s the worst line a guy has ever used on you?
The worst line a guy has ever used on me was during a car accident. He saw me at the gas station 5 minutes before I hit into his car and he got out of his car and said ” I just saw you back at the gas station… guess we were destined to meet. ;))
What is your dream car?
My dream car would have to be a completely BLACKED OUT Karma Revero. The curves on that car are so sexy! It’s a hybrid car, which means it takes gas but it can also take electric and has solar panels on the roof to conserve the amount of energy the car is using.
Have you ever traveled out of your home country?
I have traveled outside of my home country 4 times in my life! I’ve been to Puerto Vallarta & Cancun, Mexico, London, England, Glasgow Scotland. The first time I went to Mexico my family and I went to Puerto Vallarta for a summer vacation.
When I traveled to Cancun, I went with my college bestie for Spring Break 2018. One of the best vacations of my life and definitely one I wont forget! In June of 2017 my parents and I went over to London and Scotland to visit family for 8 days.
That same September we went back to London was because I had to opportunity to walk in iKons House of Fashion show for Boston designer Luna Jochim during London Fashion Week.
Are you a tom-boy, girly-girl, or both?
I am more of a girly-girl than a tomboy!!! I love all things pink and dressing up!
Do you have a favorite Kardashian sister?
I don’t know if this counts as a Kardashian but definitely Kylie Jenner!! That girl is on top of the world. Kylie has been such a role model to me and I’ve definitely based a lot of my fashion/style choices off of looks she has worn.
Other than being the world’s youngest billionaire, Kylie is also a role model to me because she’s super down to earth and is always so nice to her fans and knows how to be herself without being embarrassed or caring what others think.
Kourtney and Khloe are tied for second just because I love how real they are with everyone and their sarcasm is too on point.
Have you ever gotten plastic surgery?
I have never gotten plastic surgery. If I was to get some sort of surgery it would be a breast lift when I’m done having children, even then I don’t think I could go under the knife!
What do you want to be remembered as?
I want to be remembered as someone who was kind and someone who cared for others. Remembered as someone who could brighten anyone’s day. Remembered as someone with a good sense of style.
