I love acting. I used to go to the theater a lot when I was younger. I also love cycling—usually when I’m free, I go cycling around where I live.
I love dancing, especially belly dancing. I go clubbing, and I work it.
To model you have to have more than a look; you have to be able to give a photographer a personality, an idea, which is kind of like acting.
I think we just need peace, love, and unity in the fashion industry, and then everything will turn out okay. I don't think it should matter about skin color.
I was quite shy and quiet when I started, but I've always had confidence in modeling. I love it. I think through modeling I have much more confidence in my everyday life and in myself.
I think I've grown up and learned what to put on Instagram. Before, I was sharing too much, but now, I've tried to make it more professional and cleaned it up a bit.
I love the beach. I love trees and I love wildlife.
I enjoy light cardio including boxing, and I always make sure I take the stairs instead of a lift.
