What is the best city you've been to?
Melbourne, Australia. I absolutely love it there. The accents are to die for, the people are friendly, the nightlife is great and it's so clean and beautiful!
How important is style when it comes to representing who you are? Why?
Style is important especially, when I am going to an interview, work, date or night out. However, there are many times I like to tie my hair up, throw on some sweats, a pair of dunks and just be myself.
I would have to say not brushing their hair, but everyone has their days!
What is the biggest turn on in a guy? turn off?
Biggest turn on for me is style, smile, and most importantly, a fun, outgoing, goofy personality. Someone who isn't afraid to be themselves. Biggest turn off is a man that is vain and not open to new things.
I believe the man is supposed to pay on the first date because growing up that's what my parents taught me.
How would you describe your style in 3 words?
Casual when I feel like it. Elegant when the time is right and at times seductive.
What is your favorite hobby?
My favorite hobby would be snowboarding, hands down. I'm a major outdoors girl. I love the cold, snow, and nature.
If you could work with someone, (celebrity) who would it be?
Angelina Jolie. She is an amazing actor and an inspiration in almost everything she does. She is caring, passionate and a beautiful woman.
Is modeling your number one priority? What is your true passion?
Modeling is definitely my true passion. I love being in front of the camera. Also Djing is one of my passions as well. I love music.
What approach should a guy use that grabs your attention right off the bat?
I love a man that takes control and isn't scared to come up to me with fear of rejection. I like a man who just goes for it.
Worst style a man can have?
I would have to say a t-shirt and boring tennis shoes. However, I am not one to judge a person on style when there is so much more than just their fashion sense.
How do you deal with rejection in the fashion industry and how would you advise others to handle it?
You have to realize that it's not the end of the world, at least you put yourself out there. There will always be other opportunities. The best thing to do is don't let it bring you down and stay optimistic.
