Sunset or sunrise?
I like to think Sunrise.
What’s the biggest challenge you’ve faced in the modeling industry thus far?
I guess to be relevant, I always like to be different from myself even if it’s for a short amount of time.
Do you find there’s enough diversity in modeling and the fashion world? And what would you change about it, if anything?
Personally I think I started to develop my own personality while working in the modeling/ fashion. I believe this industry is about diversity, and especially how it keeps inspiring young different generations and race, people like myself.

Are you conscious of the environment when you shop?
I love vintage shopping! I’m a bit of a collector so from my side it’s s always cool, for example to find some old runway designers pieces that’s more detailed in the brands ‘DNA’ is magical. However, I can’t resist Uniqlo U T-shirts.
When you’re cleaning out your closet, what do you do with your clothes that no longer fit? Do you donate or sell these items?
Usually, I’d sell unwanted/non-fit items, and sometimes I like to gift something to my friends.
