What’s your biggest form of self-expression?
My biggest form of self-expression is through my fashion style and art. Because I feel like my fashion style comes from my creativity/imagination.
What do your eyes gravitate towards when you first see a person?
My eyes/mind gravitate immediately to someone’s eyes. I feel that’s the portal through someone’s soul.
Beer or wine?
I don’t drink but If I had to choose I guess wine (Laughs, E.D).

My favourite quote is: Be the energy you want to attract.
