What’s the biggest challenge you’ve faced in the modeling industry thus far?
The Modeling industry often makes you change to adjust to certain criteria. I’ve seen a lot of models that struggle with accepting themselves and their own personality. I personally find it challenging. 
Do you find there’s enough diversity in modeling and the fashion world? And what would you change about it. in anything?
I thing now the industry has gotten more diverse and that’s big progress. I love working with models of different nationalities, ethnicities, shapes and sizes. More inclusion, please.

Are you conscious of the environment when you shop?
Yes, I choose to shop consciously. I buy clothes at the flee markets and a lot of vintage. No fast fashion here.
When your cleaning out your closet, what do you do with your clothes that no longer fit? Did you donate or sell these items?
Both. Sometimes I resell the items, and sometimes I donate it or simply give it to my friends if they like it.
