If I have to change something about myself it will be to never change my mind when I've already made a decision, sometime I'm really an indecisive person.
How did you start modeling?
I started modeling few years ago, I can said my first runway experience was inside a nightclub for this hairstyle woman, she was looking for black models and she knew my parents ( at the time I was minors), it's was really fun and I remembered enjoying my first runway.
What do you think of the work as a model?
Many people think being a model it's just being pretty and posing ( almost easy), being a model it somethings very serious and hard, you have to be healthy, motivated and passion. Being a model it's not only posing, being pretty and skinny, it's a lot of work.
