It was cool. I started working in LA when I was 12. So it wasn't a normal childhood but it was fun!

Do you see yourself as Model? 

haha sometimes. I'm so happy and grateful that I get to do what I love to do!

When did you become involved in modelling and what do you love about it? 

I started when I was 12. I entered a contest in the mall in Clovis and ended up in Palm Springs at a modeling expo and signing with Ford at 12. I love it cause it allows you to create and to express yourself in different ways. I can tell a story through pictures!

Oh man it's hard to pick just one! In fact I can't. I love them all! Except for a few. Ha
