What inspired you to become a model? Have you always had a love for the fashion industry?
Since I was little, truly. I will always remember myself as a kid, reading fashion magazines and loving what I saw: beautiful and empowered women in gorgeous designer garments. It was an amazing experience. So when growing up, I did everything I could to work hard and accomplish a career in fashion. Not only did I want to be a model, I also wanted to help others fulfil their dreams. This led me to founding my own modelling agency. It makes me very proud and happy to see all my girls fulfilling their expectations in the fashion industry, as I teach them everything I know and have learned over the years.
