How long have you been working as a model? I’ve been working as a model for about two months now so far
What’s your favorite genre of modeling? I actually like any type, it’s all artistic at the end of the day, me and the photographer created a masterpiece and I just so happen to be in it which feels great. But I am very into nude, self-expression, erotic, candid, and very artistic. I think it’s because they’ll say something about my personality.
Who or what inspired you to want to become a model? Nobody actually. I just like creating art. I’m a very artistic person and this is one of the ways I vent that creativity. And I’m just very photogenic. All my social networks can prove that
What were some of the challenges that you had to face? As far as being in front of the camera, not many because like I said I’m very photogenic and I love the camera. But as far as behind the scenes or away from the camera, I would have to say social anxiety lol. I’m not a shy person, I’m actually very bold. But I social anxiety would kick in with brand-new people that I’ve never met, and before I can network I have to shake off the so-called “shyness” and break into the networking. Ever since I left school I haven’t really had to talk to a lot of people face-to-face so having to do it again I have to get used to it. But as far as the Internet I’m a complete social butterfly
What was your first and last modeling gigs? My first one was a shoot in Miami that I love, you can see it on YouTube, of me doing a photo shoot in the art District of Miami and actually came out pretty cool. I Actually really like that I shot over there instead of the beach for the first shoot because that’s a piece of my personality, I feel, that was right behind me. I’m very artistic
What modeling gig was your favorite and why? I like all of them because they’re all new experiences and they’re great people but if I had to pick one I would have to say the fashion show with crooked star clothing. That experience was so exciting and brand-new. I also had to overcome my fear of social anxiety by meeting these great people, but they made me feel so comfortable working with them that it wasn’t as hard as I thought. It almost didn’t feel like work because they were just so down to earth and being themselves. And since I’m very photogenic, they’ve had every camera and videographer out there snapping shots of me left to right and it was just so great I had a lot of fun.
Who is your favorite fashion designer? As far as undergarments, I’d have to say Victoria’s Secret is my only one! Lol as far as clothing, guess Has always been my favorite for years. They have the sexy and cool style that I like a lot. True religion jeans always seem to look good on me too. As far as shoes, I like vans, Airmax, and very few Jordans. As far as heels, I’m not too sure of the brand itself, but I do usually get them from Bakers or traffic or some store in the mall. My thing with Heels is, if it looks good on me and it has a Thin heel, and makes me feel sexy, I will buy it
What is your DREAM modeling job? For years, I’ve always wanted to become a Victoria’s Secret model. But now that I’m actually breaking into the industry and I see my potential, I want to do much more than that. Now that does not mean that if Victoria’s Secret calls me I will deny them because I will never do that. Lol. But I do want to expand into TV, commercials, magazine spreads, covers, hosting, appearances and so much more. And I also have other things that I’ve always wanted to do, in mind, that can link up with my modeling
Have you ever wanted to quit the industry and why? No I’ve never thought that.
Who or what currently inspires you to be successful in this industry? My inspiration as far as who, would be my boyfriend, my manager, and all of my fans that have shown me my potential and believed in me. But I’d also have to say that my motivation, which is negativity from my past, negative remarks from my family, and the people who have hurt me is also my inspiration because it inspires me to be better than what they have predicted of me.
What do you think about females using modeling only to get attention? Honestly, I never thought about that because I never truly cared of why someone else’s modeling. Everyone has their own walk in life and reasons why they do what they do, and honestly it’s none of my business. If that’s what they want to do then hey…
Besides modeling, what else are you involved in? Other than modeling, I was and still am involved in plenty of other things on the Internet. I have a blog online where I basically blog about my life and things that have happened and who I am. My fans and supporters go to it and usually get inspired. I also have a YouTube channel that has a lot to do with my blog but except for its actual life casting on video so that people can see who I am outside of Modeling, and which is also used to raise awareness for mental illness, because I myself am a survivor of it. I have a Tombler website where I basically put cool I am, my thoughts, my desires, and my inner struggles all into picture blogging. Of course I have Facebook, twitter, Facebook fan page, model mayhem, and Instagram where I show my photography that I do myself, my behind-the-scenes photos from my shoots and modeling jobs, and even photos of self-expression. You can pretty much google me and find me on other websites throughout the net and I even have a MySpace but I don’t use it lol
Since being in this business what turns you off about guys? I can’t really find the difference between a turn off before the industry and I turn off after the industry because I’ve always remain the same. A turn off is a turnoff no matter where I’m at in life. A turn off and a guy to me would be a guy who doesn’t keep it real, is afraid to be himself especially with me, bad hygiene,guy who is not open minded, tries to be like everyone else, believes what everyone else believes just because others find it right. As far as physical, I don’t happen to have a lot of things to say as far as turnoffs because I usually try to keep an open mind. As far as physical, I don’t have a lot to say. Depends on the guy. I have to see him in order to know whether I like something or not. Oh yeah, and being very desperate is no fun because there’s not a challenge.
Whats the worst line have you heard from a guy? I don’t really have one line, it’s more those cheesy pick up quotes from elementary school that guys sometimes still try to use as adults now.
What men fashion style gets your attention? Clean cut with a splash of urban. Even the clean-cut hip-hop nerd looks good to me. And the glasses too on guys, it’s sophistication which is always sexy. And there is Somnath also pull off the look of intellectual which is very sexy to me. But I also like the guy who can whine down and wear a clean V-neck with some vans and his glasses.
What personality traits do you look for in a guy? I don’t really look or expect a lot as far as personality because I’m all for someone being original and being themselves. But I do look for open-mindedness, Down to earth, understanding and patient. Someone who preferably does not partake in double standards and what others find right or wrong. He has to know how to separate himself and what he believes in, and his individuality with everyone else. And of course he has to be open-minded sexually to keep me interested.
What personality traits turns you off in a guy? I think I pretty much named a lot of it in the previous question about turnoffs. I’m basically like a John Lennon, so he obviously can’t be a bill O’Reilly or Oprah lol. I’m very free spirited so of course I don’t think I would do very well with a total conservative. Because I’m not conservative at all lol
Do you like a guy that can cook and clean on his own and why? Well yes of course I like a clean guy. I don’t want to come home to a dumpster. Lol. I am very very clean, and very picky as far as cleanliness. I’m very organize, so I wouldn’t want to come home and see everything out of place. A little messy is fine. Just try to pick up after yourself. As far as cooking, it doesn’t really matter it can go either way. I know how to cook and I love cooking so it doesn’t bother me to have to cook every day. If he does know how to cook, then hey.. we will cook together lol.
Do you prefer a couch potato, dreamer, thug, or business entrepreneur and why? Well definitely not a couch potato because that gets boring. I’ve dated a couple of dreamers, I say the only problem is they don’t have the will to get up and do what they’re dreaming about. The thug, I’ve actually had a serious relationship with one for 2 1/2 years in the past. Very good person, he just hides it Under that fake ego of a thug. And don’t get me wrong bugs are very good in bed, but the lifestyle they come with, I don’t want any part of it. I’ve also dated entrepreneurs. I don’t have a problem with them, you just have to learn how to balance schedules and have a clear understanding of what industry they’re in and what it comes with. But overall in general I don’t really have a labeled preference, as long as me and the person have great chemistry, he has a great personality, open-minded in bed, and actually tries to fit me in his schedule and make quality time for me I’m okay.
What cologne do you like to smell on a guy? My favorite one for some reason is Jean Paul gautier. I hope that’s how you spell it lol. Gucci sport, and Eau de Cartier. Very nice smells.
What part(s) of your body is your best asset? I don’t actually sit there in the mirror and try to figure out what is my best body part. But from what others have told me, it’s my butt and my eyes my legs and my hair
Whats your favorite hobby? I am very creative so I’m variances sketching, drawings & painting. I love doing photography because I feel like I’m capturing beauty and art that’s already there. I love eating, I don’t know how much more I can stress that. I love food. Watching my favorite shows with some good food, great conversation is a pretty good and chilled out past time for me. I’m very simple. I like South Beach too. I don’t party or any of those things, I just so happen to be very chilled out.
What is your favorite board game? There’s a few of them. Life, monopoly, sorry, Candyland, chutes and ladders, taboo.. I hope I’m not missing any. I do want to try dirty minds!
Whats your favorite sport and team? I like basketball football. And my fairy teams are always going to be the Miami Heat and dolphins. Though I do have respect for the bulls they’re doing pretty good.
What is your favorite cartoon? First of all as far as cartoons, let’s just make it clear right now I am a huge Disney fan. So anything Disney is the first to go! Other than that, I have to say the cartoons from the 90s. Cartoons like courage the cowardly dog, Rugrats, SpongeBob, gargoyles, Sesame Street, Bugs Bunny and the Looney Tunes, Roger and Jessica rabbit, tiny Toons, and all that.
Whats your favorite dessert? I love chocolate. I really like the chocolate chip paradise pie from Chili’s. The bomb!
How old were you when you had your first date? I think I was either 12 or 13 years old. Of course my mom came. My first actual date alone was at 15 years old when I got my first job.
What was your worst hair style? I hate it when my parents would put pigtails in my hair. Man that is so ugly!
Whats your favorite Kool-Aid flavors? Almost all of them. Growing up in Carol city, I drink Kool-Aid half the time.
What was your favorite subject in high school? Math, history, and PE. By the way I love lunch!
Whats your favorite season? I have to say spring and the beginning of summer. It’s not too hot it’s not too cold it’s just right. I can go anywhere in that weather. Though winter has it’s perks!
