You cannot please the world you never will have everyone on your side, but look in the mirror if you love yourself others will love you too.
The ones that have something negative to say shouldn't be in your life anyways.
Friends, boyfriend/girlfriend, and family should talk you up if they don't, don't be scared to drop them.
I feel like we all have insecurities, but if you could find something that you love about yourself those insecurities just goes away.
Can you tell us about your roots, about growing up?
I'm born and raised in Southern California, both my parents are from Compton. I come from a big family, I'm the youngest girl of 5 kids. I was such a Tomboy growing up and I loved it. Hanging out with my older brother was my favorite thing to do, so whenever he was in trouble I was. Lol
What was your childhood / teenage dream? What did you want to become
Growing up I wanted to be a cartoonist. I loved to draw. I was so good at it. I would practice for hours in my room. My favorite cartoon was the Rugrats.
Any idols during the teenage period?
I loved TLC growing up. 3 beautiful strong black women, why wouldn't they be idols.
When did you start with modeling? Can you recall your first photo session?
I started modeling in my early 20s. I have never seen myself as a model. I am really shy at times. My first photo shoot, I was so nervous. Every pose was awkward. I didn't know what to do with my hands, arms, head, anything. I felt like all my images sucked.
Implied nude / Nude photos - when have you done your first nude photo session?
It didn't take me long to model nudes. My first nude session was a month after my first photoshoot. I use to do runway modeling with The Model Experience and one of the models, Guetcha Tondreau models artist nudes. She was beautiful, everything about her was perfect. Her looking at a naked body in an artist way made me see it the same way. So doing my first nude shoot was a breeze. I had so much fun with it.
Reactions from people close to you?
The people that are close to me love it! They always support me every step of the way. They tell everyone I'm a model more than I do. Lol, so they brag a lot. It's funny because in person I'm so chill I don't put on a ton of makeup or get all dolled up all the time. So when they're telling their friends about me they're pulling up photos from their phones or from the internet to show people who I am even though I'm sitting right there.
Can you give an advice, to people in general, how not to be ashamed of their body? We have published curvy and plus size bikini & nude models, they have had a big problem with their confidence before they started to do modeling.

You are an actress too. Tell us more about that.
I love acting. I feel like I'm a wild child, so I love playing a part. I never thought I would be an actress, but I'm a risk taker so I'll try things at least once. Now I love it. I feel like with acting you get to be playful and I love that.
Every now and then I do BA modeling. I've had the opportunity to help two huge gaming companies at both E3 and Comic-Con. I'm a bit of a nerd at heart.
I love playing video games, swimming and fashion. I love playing in makeup when I get free time. I'm pretty good at it now.
