This 24-year-old model isn't just a pretty face. She's a voice that needs to be heard
Fighting For Diversity In The Modeling Industry: “It’s my job, and the job of everyone, really, to make things easier for the next generation, and that happens when we share our stories and live in our truth. I am living my truth, and by doing so, I’m inspiring others to be free and do the same.”
Eclectic Chick: “My style is a mix of high- and low-end clothing. I also love feminine details and jewelry. I’m like Jimi Hendrix meets Tupac meets Sade.”
Designer Crush: “I adore Elie Saab princess dresses.”
Easy Does It: “I’m pretty minimal when it comes to makeup. I love Marc Jacobs mascara, Glossier skin tint, Nars highlighter and a little lip gloss.”
Fast-Forward Five Years: “I feel like anything is possible at this point. I would like to have written a book. Besides that, I have no idea. I could take a guess, but that would just be limiting God.”
