I leaned how to make new friends quickly, how to adjust in new environments, and how to never be afraid of new things. I have 9 brothers and sisters. We are best friends ! Growing up I was a such a tomboy. I was into sports, running outside barefoot, and wresting with my brothers. My favorite game system was the GameCube and my favorite game to play was Super Smash brothers Malee.  I was that sibling that was the most adventurous.  I was the go to for all questions to present to our parents.

A Valuable lesson that I learned in the modeling industry thud far is CONFIDENCE is the most important key.

Also to never feel like you know It all and be willing to learn new things. LISTEN & take direction well.
