Tell us briefly about your modeling career and what has come out of it. To be honest, I’ve never wanted to be a model because I thought I didn’t have what it took because growing up…I was 130lbs in elementary, very bad teeth, very shy that I never talked to anyone and always ate lunch by myself at school plus lacked self-confidence because I got bullied a lot about my physical looks to the point I did homeschooling instead. I started working out and dropped a lot of weight to 105lbs by middle school.I ended up getting my braces too. I look opposite now, but am I still insecure? Yes I am, BUT the one thing that has ever been the greatest to me is to help other females with their struggles with their insecurities and to encourage others not to give up.

Tell us some of your greatest achievements in your career today. Besides modeling, model coordinating, I also do fashion designing and I will be starting up my beauty line very soon so I’m super excited! ^_^

What are some of the toughest challenges about your job and what are some things you do to overcome the challenges? One of the toughest challenges would probably have to be trying to be patience. There’s times it’s stressful or I rush things, but lesson learn that it’s about quality over quantity.

What are some characteristics you should have to be prepared in this industry? Definitely having a thick skin, open mind, and loyal heart.

What should aspiring female models be careful of? What are some things that can be unforeseen?  One of the major mistakes aspiring models don’t tend to remember or keep in mind is to always do research on those they choose to work with. For example, with photographers, always ask them for their website, address to their studio, links to social media accounts, etc for validation. There are a lot of frauds/scams that will lure young aspiring models to horrifying things, so safety first!

What hobbies are you into outside of modeling? What do you do on weekends and on your time off? I usually like to do outdoor activities going to the beach, hiking, playing sports and taking my pups out.

Any last statements for Rude Boy viewers? I would like to thank my family, friends, and my awesome fans for always encouraging me when my days are filled with new accomplishments and my down sides. Also, I would like to thank my friend Will Zhong for this amazing opportunity, team Rude Boy all the way!
