Can you please give us a brief outline of how you got where you are professionally?
I started modelling when I was 16 down in Miami. I knew that being in the industry was something that I wanted to do. School was never my forte, I've always learned better from the experiences I've been through rather than reading a textbook. Once social media came about, it fascinated me. I loved being able to post the moment and being able to connect with people so easily. Once I started growing on social media, I started realising that a lot of people were asking questions about my clothing, makeup, hair products. I realised that it could be turned into a business, some form of advertising. After that, I started working with brands and building relationships that are still lasting and thriving. It's been amazing.
What is your favourite Bali Body product to use and why?
My favourite Bali Body product is the Ultra Dark Self Tanning Mousse. It glides onto my skin so great and gives me the best tan glow!
What is your favourite thing about your job?
I would say my favourite thing would be how much I get to travel the world. I love it.
Your motivational quote is?
"treat others the way you want to be treated". Cheesy, but something I've always believed in.
What are you looking most forward to this year?
I'm looking the most forward for things to get back to normal so that regular travel can start again.
What does a ‘treat yourself’ moment look like to you?
A day away from my phone, on the water here in Florida.
How would you describe your approach to beauty?
Whatever makes me feel the most confident and beautiful in my own skin. Get ready knowing that you're doing it for yourself.
What has been the biggest ‘pinch yourself moment’ in your career to date?
Standing in the same room as about 10 celebrities for an event that I had. That was pretty cool.
What product can you not live without?
Definitely my Bali Body Ultra Dark Self Tanning Mousse!
