Sacramento, CA but from Santa Rosa, Ca.
3. ZODIAC SIGN:
5. HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN MODELING FOR?:
I’ve been modeling off and on for 6 years, since I was 16.
6. WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO PURSUE A CAREER IN MODELING?:
I’ve always been a sucker for the camera, since I was a little girl.
As soon as I step in front of the lens, something switches in me. The
artistry and creativity that comes with shooting, editing, and the
final product is definitely fulfilling.
7. HAVE YOU BEEN FEATURED IN ANY OTHER PUBLICATIONS OR IS GODER YOUR FIRST?:
Go Der is my very first publication! Thank you, also thanks
Da’unda’dogg for hooking it up.
8. TELL US ABOUT YOUR BEST PHYSICAL ASSET AND WHY YOU FEEL THAT ITS YOUR BEST?:
I’d have to say my best physical asset would have to be my beauty
marks. Having them on my face was something that made me self
conscious when I was younger. I’ve grown to love and appreciate how
unique they are to me. I promise you’ll never forget this face!
9. WHATS YOUR FAVORITE SEXUAL POSITION?
N/A. A lady never tells.
10. Name 3 hobbies that separate you from the “iCandy” stereotype.
10A. I’m the lead singer in a new R&B/Soul band. We’ll be performing
in beautiful Sonoma County. Stay updated with show dates on my social
10B. It’s not exactly an exciting hobby, but I’m a salesman. I’m
always learning new skills and tools that I can use every day, and can
apply in all aspects of life. I strive to be a successful business
10C. I like to stay in and stay grounded. Most people in their early
20s are enjoying night life weekly and drinking often. Don’t get me
wrong, I’m definitely down for a good time! But most of the time I’d
rather avoid large crowds of people. Intimate gatherings with my loved
ones and close friends appeal to me more than other likely options. I
like to feel safe by surrounding myself with positive energies.
11. BECAUSE YOU ARE A MODEL, WHAT IS A COMMON MISCONCEPTION THAT
PEOPLE MAY HAVE ABOUT YOU?:
There’s this misconception that models are these extremely sexual
beings. We’re all human, so there’s some truth to that. But just like
actors, we’re able to turn “it” on for the camera and off when we’re
finished shooting. Nudity and sensuality should be viewed as art and a
form of expression.
12. DESCRIBE YOUR IDEAL ROMANTIC DATE?:
In my opinion, romance should always start with food! Growing up in
the California Wine Country, it made me a food lover. Nothing too
fancy but not too casual. A restaurant with nice outdoor seating and
good lighting is super important. A few glasses of Pinot Grigio.
Amazing dessert. All accompanied by quality conversation, of course.
Next, hitting up a cool spot with live music and dance the rest of the
night away. What can I say, I’m simple.
13. WHAT IS THE FREAKIEST THING THAT YOU HAVE EVER DONE?:
N/A. Once again I have to say a lady never tells 🙂
14. WHO ARE YOUR FAVORITE FEMALE ICONS, WHY?:
India Arie was probably the first woman who was able to really
influence me through her craft. I was about 9 or 10 when I was
introduced to her music by my aunty. She speaks of self love, trust,
family, lessons learned, spirituality, what it means to be a black
woman and so much more. All very important topics for girls, young
women, and really everyone. She’s a queen, a legend, and her music is
timeless. She’ll forever be a favorite of mine.
15. WHATS THE BEST MOTTO AND OR ADVICE GIVEN TO YOU UP TO THIS POINT
IN YOUR LIFE?:
It’s so hard to pick, I have so many positive influences in my life.
But Michelle Obama said it best with, “When they go low, we go high.”
Life is so much more fulfilling when you can go to bed every night and
wake up every day knowing you’re putting your best self forward. No
matter who crosses your path with negativity, you’ll always have the
power to respond in a positive way that you’ll never regret. Being a
good person with the best intentions will always be the best way to
get through life.
16. ANY SHOUT OUT PROJECTS TO LOOK OUT FOR?:
Shout out to my boy, my photographer Adrian Vega for always bringing
my visions to life. You can find him on Instagram, @avtp. Stay tuned
for more visuals from us, many more to come. I’ll be putting out music
in the near future. This is the very beginning, I have a lot to show
y’all! A very special thank you to Go Der magazine for my first
feature, I’ll never forget this opportunity.
