I was introduced at home, came to New York and was scouted. Been modeling for two years now.
3. What things are you truly passionate about?
Mostly my family, and everyone that supports me. Also modeling because its so much competition, and I like competition.

I really couldn’t tell you that because i don’t center my self with people talking down.

African American, German, and a little Indian. I don’t know what tribe!
