Happy to have you featured on FHM! Tell us what are some of the things you did to prepare for this shoot? Tanning, working out, meal prep just some basic stuff.
You’ve got an amazing figure and beauty about you, we’re keen to know what you would say is your favorite physical feature about yourself and why? Oh, it’s my inner hell to talk about myself but I guess I get a lot of compliments on my eyes.
Being a glamorous model must have its perks, what are some of the most memorable experiences in your career? I would say my first photoshoot was special. It was my first!
What would you say sets you apart? The part that sets me apart is I know I’m just another beautiful girl in a beautiful world.
On the topic of men, what were the complete best, and worst first impressions you’ve got on a first date? Best or worst I would say it was ours and not the publics’. I do not like sharing details. Next question.
What would you say is the most surprising thing about you that not many people know? I try to be wise, thoughtful, worldly, loving, passionate about life, living it well, and yes I’ve been a bit blessed.
If you had to choose, would you say money and wealth determines success, or is it one’s personal achievements and happiness? I think success looks different on everyone, I’d say a healthy balance of all of the above is a good speed.
On a more personal level and in an ideal world, where do you see yourself in five or ten years; time in terms of family life, career, or both? Probably sitting on some boards and playing with my hair at the same time. Hopelessly in love!
2020 was a challenging year for us all, what advice would you give to other models or aspiring models out there in light of all the challenges faced? Stay humble and grounded. Be you!
Any final words to our readers on what to expect from you this year? My Bee jewelry line is launching this year, it’s about a bee and her drones.
