I don't dress to please anyone else, just me.
I think my difference is that I’m not a model who represents one kind of woman. Each job I get I change.
It means the recognition of my work and all my efforts… I am very happy. on being the world's top model.
I love living in Brooklyn. Originally I moved there because I could enjoy a bigger space for less money than I would ever get in Manhattan.
