For me modeling wasn't something I initially latched on to. When I was little my family and friends use to say that I was photogenic but being young that wasn't a spark telling me I should become a model. It took till I moved to NYC when I was 19 to be scouted for NYFW to know that I have what it takes. I felt amazed not only by the opportunity but it's lifestyle. I'm a very fun outgoing type with an energetic personality. Guess I'm like that because of everything I went through when I was younger. Modeling has become not my career but an experience because even though it's fun being casted for these ads and campaigns, traveling, getting free designer clothes at times and being featured in magazines meeting amazing people, I know first hand it's only for a limited ride. Youth fades and so does the image. New faces emerge but I take this as a God's blessing to be able to go through these experiences and be able to get the great exposure. But once everything is said and done my true calling is becoming an architect and selling my books into best sellers. I want to be able to look back and tell my kids that "yes I lived a full life". To look back and know I took chance and became friends with opportunity because you never know what's to come of it. We dream of a better life for ourselves, through it all we attempt to achieve said dream, once we've accomplished what we've set out to do the dream shouldn't end there because it's not about the destination but the journey itself and we must inspire others to do the same. Modeling brings great memories and moments and amazing people into my life. My next goal is becoming an international model. And for me that's just the beginning.
