1. How were you scouted and why did you choose Page Parkes?
I was actually scouted by Page Parkes herself when I was fifteen. At my highschool, I am part of an organization called National Charity League. There was a fashion show held for the organization where Page Parkes was there personally teaching girls to walk. She loved my fresh look and said that I should be a model! I chose Page Parkes because it is an extremely reputable agency. I've seen many people become famous there and I love how they treat you. Everyone there is super nice and they are truly professional as well.

2. Who are your biggest fans?
Definitely my parents, family, and my boyfriend Sean. All of my friends really are as well! They all support my dreams of modeling.

3. What was it like walking in the Neiman Marcus + Roland Mouret Luncheon Fashion Show? Any behind the scenes scoop you can give us?
It is so much fun! I always love walking down the catwalk. I love that all eyes are on you and it's your big moment to shine. Backstage can get pretty hectic right before and during the fashion show though with big designers. However, this one went very smoothly and everyone looked amazing.

4. What is one magazine you would love to be featured in and which designer would you want to walk for?
Definitely VOGUE! I mean who wouldn't want to be seen in Vogue?! I would love to be able to walk for Guess, Calvin Klein, or Ralph Lauren. They're all timeless in their own way.

5. Where do you see yourself in the next couple of years?
Hopefully New York or Paris! I would just love to travel anywhere for modeling and get to experience life especially outside of the US. I know it will be hard since I've never lived on my own, but it would be nice to be able to experience it!

6. What is your holiday guilty pleasure?
CHOCOLATE! I love chocolate. But recently, I found out I have lactose intolerance. Sad, I know. So...maybe donuts? Mmm...

7. People in the modeling/fashion industry can be very critical. What kind of advice can you give to other models who are very self-conscious with their appearance?
I believe that nobody should ever try to change themselves. For instance, gaining or losing weight to please someone else especially if they are not comfortable with it. It's all about being confident with your features and learning to be comfortable in your own skin.
